Model Highlights

The 2007 Suzuki Grand Vitara uses a 2.7L V6 engine with four valves per cylinder and double overhead camshafts. It makes 185 horsepower and 184 ft-lbs of torque and achieves a respectable 19 mpg in the city and 24 on the highway with two wheel drive, according to the EPA. A five-speed manual transmission is standard on the base Grand Vitara, while a smooth-shifting five-speed automatic is optional on the base model and standard on all other trims.

The base Grand Vitara has electronic stability and traction controls, anti-lock brakes, power mirrors, a tire pressure monitor, cruise control, automatic climate control, a CD player with MP3 capability, seat-mounted air bags, side curtain air bags, and power windows and locks with remote keyless entry.

The Xsport trim adds 16-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, a hard shell spare tire cover, front fog lamps, privacy glass, SmartPass keyless entry and starting, and a six-CD changer. The Luxury trim includes 17-inch alloy wheels, a sunroof, HomeLink, interior woodgrain accents, and heated mirrors and front leather seats.

All of the trims are available with either two- or four-wheel drive, and Suzuki has simplified the controls for readying Grand Vitara to claw its way up that muddy fire road. A convenient knob is located on the dash just below the three-dial heater controls. Rotate the knob one click and the center differential locks. One more turn and the Grand Vitara also engages its low-range. The final position is for flat towing, and puts the drivetrain in neutral.

The cabin is exceptionally well finished, and the exterior styling is quite pleasant. There are 24.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat, and that expands to a hefty 68.9 when they are folded down.


Model News

Suzuki's Grand Vitara was redesigned in 2006, and it enters 2007 with virtually no changes.


Value Writeup

The 2007 Suzuki Grand Vitara offers a spacious yet small SUV with lots of luxury features for the price some manufacturers charge for their most basic units. Most of the Grand Vitara's competitors offer a four-cylinder engine, while the Suzuki packs a V6.

Summary
CERTAIN VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 114, 'THEFT PROTECTION. ' THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION SELECTOR LEVER "PARK" LOCK FUNCTION MAY BE INOPERATIVE DUE TO A STICKING SHIFT LOCK ARM. THE SHIFT LEVER MAY BE ABLE TO BE SHIFTED OUT OF "PARK" WITH THE KEY REMOVED AND WITHOUT DEPRESSING THE BRAKE PEDAL.

Consequence
THIS CAN GIVE RISE TO INCREASED INCIDENTS OF CRASHES RESULTING FROM THE ROLLAWAY OF PARKED VEHICLES AS A RESULT OF INADVERTENTLY MOVING THE SHIFT LEVER FROM THE "PARK" POSITION WHEN THE PARKING BRAKE IS NOT FULLY ENGAGED.

DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE SHIFT LOCK MODULE FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING JANUARY 2008. OWNERS MAY CONTACT SUZUKI AT 1-800-934-0934.

SUZUKI RECALL NO. PE. CUSTOMERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV.

Summary
Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (Suzuki) is recalling certain model year 2006-2011 Grand Vitara and 2007-2011 SX4 vehicles. In the affected vehicles, over time, the OCS sensor mat installed in the front passenger seat may fail due to repeated flexing of the mat from use of the seat. As a result, during a crash necessitating deployment, the air bag will deploy regardless of whether the front seat occupant is an adult or a child.

Consequence
Air bag deployment with a child in the front passenger side seat increases the risk of injury to that child.

Suzuki will notify owners and dealers will replace the front passenger seat cushion assembly (which includes the OCS sensor mat) free of charge. Sufficient quantities of parts are not currently available to fix all of the affected vehicles. Owners will be notified of the recall in October 2013 and will receive a second notification when parts are available to have their vehicle repaired. Owners may contact Suzuki at 1-800-934-0934. Suzuki's recall campaign number is VD.

Note: Vehicles which previously had a countermeasure occupant classification system (OCS) sensor mat installed under the special coverage campaign conducted by Suzuki distributors in the United States are not affected by this recall. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
