OT:2012 MY13 Suzuki Grand Vitara

2012 SUZUKI GRAND VITARA MY13.

Looking at purchasing two of these as Company cars in the Short wheel base 3 Door version..

Any one had any experience with these 4WD's in the past.. I purchased one in 2000, but only had for 3 months as traded for a RAV4 at the time.

The reviews seem very positive.

Wifey got her way ( well its her car anyway ) and purchased the all New 2013 Corolla Levin SX..

Haven't actually even physically seen the car, but the specs and standard equipment list are very impressive.

Crystal Pearl ( White metallic ) with the CVT 7-speed sport sequential auto.

Not sure about the Vitara but I've been checking out the new Jeep SRT8... looks like a real bang for buck 4WD for the money.

Btw, congrats on purchase.

As an ex-Suzi owner I reckon they are great value for money. Bloody reliable, never had a single prob in the two years I ran the Kizashi.

They just don't have any soul unfortunately.

Q. What's the only manufacturer never to make an annual loss in any year until the GFC?

A. Suzuki.

I reckon the Corolla looks smart. If it's reliable, has good safety and drives well what more do you really need if you're not a "car" person?
