2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara Problems

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

The AC condenser fan motor may fail. If this occurs the air conditioning will stop blowing cold air.

Engine -- Verified

The timing chain cover gasket and timing chain tensioner may fail, causing an oil leak or excessive noise. Because removing the timing chain is labor intensive, this can be an expensive repair.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

Creaking of squeaking noises may be noted from the sway bar bushings. Our technicians tell us revised bushings are available which should correct this concern.
