Bear some things in mind

I am very happy with my 2007 XL7. I physically measured many other SUVs and the XL7 provides the best ratio of space ( interior usable length ) to cost. The ride is excellent. It does take some time getting used to the placement of the window switches but this is minor. Here, however were the things that made me 'nuts'. At least 2 Suzuki dealers in the Boston area have moved away. This left me with the dealer I purchased the vehicle from - who I dont like due to the way they dealt with me. I began to wonder if the company was going out of business. I have been warned that parts are difficult to get - so dont wait until the last minute. The mechanics dont know how to operate the idiot light functions ( tire warning, oil change, etc. ) Twice I was promised that the regional tech would be consulted - he wasnt. The instructions in the manual do not work - it was only due to trial and error that I learned how to made them function - and none of it was in the manual - and the dealer had no clue. Bottom line - expect a good vehicle and a lot of stupidity from the dealer and the company.
Handles well, comfortable seatong. Cruise control not in a good location, one can turn on accidently. Would like to see shift selector shown at the gear shift location.
Care handles extremly well and is comfortable for long distance driving with more than enough power. Fuel milage does not meet their rated 24 mpg as of yet, I am getting around 17 in town and 20 hwy.
If you want a mid size care comparable to the Ford Edge at $5,000 less, test drive this car.
Review of 2007 Suzuki XL7
Used to Toyota Sequoia
I recently traded in a 03 Toyota Sequoia for the new XL7 limited edition. Being a big guy, (6' 240lbs) I was skeptical that I would enjoy it, but after a great test drive and 1000 miles I'm loving it. I have the inside room for a big guy and a very peppy engine. Ultra Smooth ride too. The only thing I gave up was one passenger seat and some inside haulding space. The long-term will tell and I haven't taken it on a long-trip yet but at this point it's a hit with me.
