Re: Any Vitara/Grand Vitara owners around here?
Oh my gawd! I'm not that bad off.
*knocking on wood*
Mine has about the same miles. I'm waiting till the 36K mile warranty wears out befor the lift, which should be in March or there abouts.
I have had a couple of stalls in the morning, but I thought that it was due to parking it on a hill. As for the brakes, yeah they come on all the time, especially when going slow. There is a pot hole at the bottom of our road that every time I go thru it while braking, no matter how slow, it comes on. It has come on a couple of times after I've started it and thru it into reverse quickly.. Not sure why. And a couple of times it has pulled hard (read: REAL HARD) when coming to a stop within the first couple/few of miles.m Again, clueless.
I know it's a pretty sophisticated ABS system, so it might be quirky. As for the tires, mine are wearing quite well *knocks on wood again*
Other than that, I love it! Lotsa low-end power. Is yours the V6? Oh, and the leather seats? Definately will end up in my sammy.
I'm going to put 245/75R16 BFG A/T's on it, using Spidertrax spacers to give some backspacing. Those go on soon before snow flys. I've got to finish the safari basket soon too. It will have four KC's on the front. The spare goes on the roof and a Jerry can/Hi-lift takes the place of the rear mount spare. It'll look sweet. A lot tougher than it looks now.
My fiance wants me to gold plate safari basket, winch bumper and all the other armor to match the gold on the Limited edition.
Can someone say, "Gag me!"?
