Wow, time flys when you are a new parent. Haven't had much time to spend on this board. Here is my update. Now with 16,400 miles I have had a couple of issues with the XL-7.
1. The windshield washer line to the rear window seperated behind the headliner over the second row seat. My headliner turned a nice shade of blue. This was caused by a bad hose coupler from the factory. Suzuki fixed the problem and replaced the headliner.
2. Today, the Brake and ABS warning lights came on. It has an appointment at the dealer next week for the recall and I will have them fix the brake issue.
I had XM radio installed almost a year ago as well as Thule roof racks. What a nice truck. It's a definite keeper.

Your too funny! Just because you saw one does not mean that is it. Many variables go into it, car, technical expertise, etc. etc. I raced a new vette in my mustang, do i think all vettes are junk, no. Many variables go into it, but just about all muscle car magazines do dyno tests with the new camaro's and mustang's, to see what they really base line at. Then they start adding air filters, Exhaust, chips, under drive pulley's, cooler's, the lists go on and they all publish what they improved on in HP and Torque. That is how the aftermarket came about, but hey even if you where right, i have mine tagged in a state where i don't even have to have one, I'll just go straight pipe.
Randyrodhes, tough break, that would suck to have happen good thing it was all covered.

I am seriously considering buying a Suzuki XL-7. However, the problems that you have had has me having 2nd thoughts. Why do you still feel your Suzuki is a nice truck and a keeper?

I have been in the service industry for 15 years now. The issues with my XL-7 are minor. This truck is very rugged and proven to be a fine vehicle. I can go places that my wifes Honda CRV can't go or my friends Ford Escape because the XL-7 has true four wheel drive. Besides, you can't beat the warranty.
If you have anymore questions, I'll be glad to help.

Yup, you can't beat that warranty! I still can't believe HyunKia is still saying theirs is "America's Best Warranty" when in fact theirs has the same mileage (100K) and is non-transferrable.

yea dennis .. In fact Suzukis warranty is BETTER cause its allow over 14000 miles a year a year.. The 10/100k miles allows only 10k miles a year. Everyoen KNOWS that the average mileage Americans drive a year is 12-14k miles a yea. SO the Hy/kia warranty is gone after 7 years anywayand its NOT transferrabe.. what a scam.. heuy KNIOW that most people get rid of their cars after a few years so the warranty goes into the toilet..

Anybody here changed these 2 items out yet?? Just wondering if the Fuel filter is easily assessable. I can't for the life of me figure how and where the Hepa filter is inside. Obviously under the dash,and i know if it was a snake it probably would have bitten me by now, but i am just not seeing it.

I might be able to assist with the cabin air filter.
#995 of 1355 Update on brake issue
Feb 02, 2004 (7:58 pm)
My ABS and Brake light went out this morning after a warm up here in Connecticut. I figure a piece of ice or something was stuck on one of the speed sensors. All is well, but I will still have the codes pulled at the dealer while getting the throttle cable recall done on Wednesday.
XM makes the ride so much better.
