2008 XL7 Owner Reviews (7)
Best car ever!
AOL user 2015-02-07 08:48:35
I have now owned my 2008 XL7 for nearly six years, it has been the only car that I have driven for nearly 88,000 miles that I couldn't wait to get rid of. This car is reliable, looks good even at nearly seven years old, people comment on its attractive appearance, almost no repairs, only replaced brake pads on rear wheels after 88,000 miles and one new battery, that's it! When my wife go out on the weekend, we drive the XL7 rather than my wife's luxury car since we both agree it is more fun to drive and ride in. My challenge now is trying to figure out what my next car will be since the XL7 has not been made since 2009.
Sun roof drain

Leaks since I got it, Tube that drains the water when it rains on drivers side, fills up with water. Dealer doesn't seem to know how to fix it. Had it in more than 3 times under warranty, seemed to work for a month or so and again after warranty now he says he can fix it but will cost me over $200. Not happy with car or Dealership!
Under appreciated and under rated vehicle

I bought my XL7 in February of 09 when Suzuki had $6000 rebates. I then searched the internet and found a dealer in Cincinnati,OH offering additional $4000 off. So got car listed at over $31k for just over $21k. This is one of the best vehicles I have ever owned. The ride is great as you sit higher than regular car. Equipment level can't be beat...navigation, sunroof, leather, chrome wheels, rearview camera,remote start, engine with great acceleration. I just returned from a 1700 mile trip that was all hightway. I was actually going speeds of 110 mph on interstate and never dropped below 75 and still got over 21mpg. In the city I'm avge about 16.5mg. My family I went to see were very impressed because all 7 of us could get in here. My sister who lives in Dallas is going to look to see if she can find a used one since they no longer make this. I can't believe Suzuki discontinued this car because of sales. It definitely beats the Pontiac Torrent and Chevy Equinox. The interior is very spacious and I'm 6 foot, 220 pds and have room in the 3rd row. Anyone sitting in the backseat likes having the separate a/c and heat controls with vents out of ceiling. The warranty can't be beat also. Luckily we have 4 Suzuki dealerships in the Indy area and none are closing that I know of. I haven't had any problems except the gas gauge went out the first day I bought it and the dealer fixed it and gave me a $100 Shell gas card. I will definitely look at Suzuki for my next car.

I just bought a 2009 XL7 from US Auto Sales in Lawrenceville, GA. My incintive....the deal that was offered....my reward...one of the best cars I've ever had. My last car was Lexus SUV and doubted it could be equaled. This Suzuki drives as well and has features equal to my Lexus. Unbelievable price for a quality car. Ask for Cliff.
XL7 is a Great Value

We recently purchased a new 2008 XL7 Limited. This is one fine vehicle and a great value priced under 30k. After owning a Chrysler product for the past several years, it is no wonder why the Japanese have surpassed us in auto production. Our 2005 Chrysler Van was nothing but problems and once the warranty ran out it became too costly to maintain. The Suzuki XL7 is a versatile vehicle that gives us all the space and power we need to transport our family of five. During the buying process we compared the XL7 to many other vehicles in its class and the XL7 won hands down based on value for the money. If you are looking for a great medium sized SUV be sure to check out the XL7!
Review of 2008 Suzuki XL7

I have a 2004 XL-7 and I bought this one with 0% financing. I really like this year model however its a little loud, but that really my only complaint. Overall its a fine vehicle peppy with lots of room.
