Looks like there is a "serious" recall for some 2002 and 2003 GV and XL-7s (also some of the other vehicles as well). Its an issue with two layers of paint not bonding, and the windshield being capable of coming out in some collisions. The fix sounds serious: they will either paint the vehicle, replace it, or buy it back and destroy it. Thats a little scary for owners, in my opinion. I wonder what the terms for the replacement or buy back will be. I could see some customers taking a major hit if they have to sell back their cars, unless Suzuki really gets their act together and treats these customers right. You can see details on the NHTSA board at http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/ Look for campaign ID 03V223000. Of course, my dealer didn't have a clue, but I was able to get Suzuki customer service to check the VINS on both my GV and my wife's XL-7. According to them, neither is involved in the recall. I hope that is accurate. I can see major problems making this right for customers who have to sell back vehicles.

I'll see if I can get someone's attention on it. Sometimes these discussions don't wind up in the searches either for some reason.

Can't u just add Suzuki XL-7 to the list of topics and delete Grand Vitara from it?????? And change the name to "Suzuki XL-7". That would fix the whole problem.

Half the time this SUV is referred to as the Grand Vitara XL-7 and the rest of the time it's just called the Suzuki XL-7. Our review doesn't make it all that clear either (link).
While I wait for further enlightenment, we've juggled the model category so this discussion should show up in all the appropriate search places. May take a while for the reindexing to get done.
#826 of 1355 THANK YOU, STEVE!!!!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!

But Suzuki's official name is XL-7 so the topic should be called that.

We'll still leave the "Grand" in the search field so those similarly confused (like me) will hopefully be able to stumble in here fine
