My 2001 XL7 has heater vents under the middle seats, not exactly sure how they are routed there but they are there.

Have you find out what happened and what was the problem?! I just registered here because I had the same exact thing happen to me (just changed the battery and it won't idle). Thank you in advance.

Do you know if the suzuki xl-7 2007 is to big for a single person? I want a big suv but don't want to pay to muchfor gas? Whats the average price for gas a week or two weeks with the suzuki? If the suzuki is to big can you recommend a SUV for a single person?

I have an '04 XL7 EX I bought new in Aug 2004. Everything going well until this summer. First, OEM Bridgestone tires were almost completely shot after 23,000 miles, just replaced with a new set of Uniroyal Tiger Paws with 80,000 warranty. Last week, I couldn't start the car (due to dead battery). Battery replaced in 23 months (24 month OEM warranty) no $$ help from Suzuki. Now I checked the front rotors and see grooving along the outer edge of the RHS wheel. Could it be time for new brake pads after only 24,000 miles? This is my spouse's car and she can be tough on cars, but one would think pads should last 30K.
Anyone with a similar problem(s) please let me know ... thanks.

I have just turned 60000 on a 2001 which I bought March 05. it had come off a lease in Sep 04 with 38800. Since the purchase, I have replaced one oxygen sensor and the two rear bearings. I had the trans fluid changed as soon as I got it and the oil in the two transfer units and rear axle.
I change the oil myself, although not the easiest it can be done with some patience and techniques learnt on this site. I have found that it needs to be done every 2500 and currently using a Purolator L22821 oil filter with Exxon 5-30. I am looking at Denso as well. I have a K&N Air Filter installed.
MPG on a long highway trip between 24 - 25mpg and plenty of throttle control by easing off the gas when convenient. I am running the tires at 26/36, although the flyer in the pack says back ones at 32 OK. Tires on the van when I got it are Kubota and have several 000's left. Front brake pads replaced and rotors re surfaced at 55,000.
I also found that WD-40 on the rubber bushings where the body connects to the frame along each side, seems to keep it pliant and no underbody noise. Also do the rear shock rubber bushings as well.
When I got the car I took out and extended warranty, so I hoping if timing chain or something major happens then I will be covered. However I am not wishing for that.
I know in many cases it is the luck of the draw, but I cannot be more than pleased with the feel, the controls and switches are positive and its ideal driving position.

Hi, everyone. As you've probably noticed, we have been trying to refine the discussions into more narrowly focussed topics. Our objective is twofold. We want to make it easier for people seeking specific information about their vehicles to find it easily and without having to wade through hundreds or thousands of postings.
To those ends, we will be shutting down the general make/model discussions and work exclusively with specific issues. This requires us to populate the make/model subsections with relevant, interesting and timely topics. Rather than having the hosts simply create boilerplate topics for each make/model, we feel that you, the owner, the make/model enthusiast and the prospective buyer can best judge what those topics should be.
You can help by adding a discussion (it's easy!) or suggesting one here.
To add a discussion, click on the last link in the "You are here" line at the top of this page. That will take you to the topic page for this make/model. Review the list of topics and click on the "Add discussion" link when you've decided what topic you'd like to add. Follow the directions and you're done! Feel free to add more than one. Just avoid duplicating existing topics and try not to make it TOO specific!
Your help and continued participation in the Forums is greatly appreciated! Thanks.
