"I bought my basic, no frills, Vitara in Jan 2001 and put 157,000 miles on it. I really believe it was worth every penny. I had just the basic repairs, brakes, O2 censor after 135,000 miles, and timing belt. The gas was fine until the hike in prices. It's a great first car for teenagers or small families. I just went out and bought a used 2006 Grand Vitara because I wanted a little more power. I would recemmend it for anyone who would like some of the frills and doesn't want to spend the extra $4,000 on a Toyota RAV4 or Honda CRV."

"I searched high and low for a 4 cylinder with ABS and wound up having to travel 1300 miles to find one W/O ABS (not sure they exist). The 6cyl is necessary only if you intend to tow and are willing to buy the extra fuel. With shift on the fly 4wd and a low range it will take you most anywhere a car should go (and some places they shouldn't). I'm averaging around 21mpg in town and 25 running 75mph. It's quieter than I expected, however the ride on rough roads is a bit choppy. It can be towed with all 4 wheels on the road which makes an ideal tow car for an RV."
