Model News

Suzuki dropped the V6 from the Grand Vitara. The XSport and Special Edition trims are no longer available.

The Premium Grand Vitaras add Suzuki's new NuLink system which uses Google to find local points of interest, fuel prices, weather forecast and traffic information wirelessly.

The Limited gets 18-inch aluminum wheels for 2011.


Value Writeup

Because of its fully independent suspension and ladder frame design within a uni-body structure, Suzuki calls the Grand Vitara "The Off-Road Athlete." It sits on a rugged chassis, and safety features include anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution, traction control, anti-skid system, side curtain airbags with rollover sensors, front side airbags and electronic stability control to help prevent the loss of control of the vehicle. Navigation is standard. Towing capacity rated at is 3,000 pounds and highway mileage is an impressive 26 mpg.


Model Highlights

The 2011 Suzuki Grand Vitara comes with a single engine available--a 2.4L 4-cylinder that makes 166 horsepower and 162 ft-lb of torque and comes mated to either a 5-speed manual on the 2-wheel drive Base trim only or a 4-speed automatic transmission on the rest of the Grand Vitara range.

Two 4-wheel drive-systems are available on the Grand Vitara: a single-mode system and the Four-Mode by Suzuki, which is a full-time 4-wheel-drive system with a 2-speed transfer case.

Three trims are available for 2011. Base and Premium are the basics, while the Limited offers the most luxury and style. Single-mode all-wheel drive is also offered on Premium models. Limited trims comes with the Four-Mode all-wheel drive.

The Grand Vitara seats five and with the 60/40-split rear seat folded forward, also called Fold-and-Tumble, its already-roomy 24.4 cubic feet of cargo space can be expanded to nearly 69 cubic feet. Side-hinged rear cargo door allow for even larger cargo.

The Four-Mode system has a full-time mode for on-road driving, which sends power to the front wheels as needed. It includes low-range gearing and a limited-slip center differential. The center differential can be locked while in either high or low range for negotiating off-road terrain, mud or deep snow. Short overhangs and good ground clearance help in tight off-road situations.

Towing and being towed are strong points for the Grand Vitara. For those who travel by RV, and who want to take the Grand Vitara along, it can be towed by using the 4-wheel-drive's neutral position and with all four wheels on the ground without registering miles on the odometer.

The base and Premium Grand Vitara come nicely equipped with standard automatic climate control, steering-wheel audio controls, full power accessories, touch-screen navigation, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity and a CD/MP3 sound system.

The Premium adds the new Suzuki NuLink system which uses Google to find nearby points of interest, but also brings fuel prices, weather and traffic information into the vehicle.

The top-of-the-line Limited trim brings leather upholstery and steering-wheel trim, heated front seats, woodgrain trim, power sunroof, 18-inch alloy wheels, universal garage-door opener and heated mirrors.

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.

Frontal crash test results are valid for 2011 model year vehicles manufactured before July 2, 2010.

Male/Female Dummy Note
Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Note
Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. 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.
