I have a 2006 GV luxury V6. With 118,xxx miles. For the most part trouble free minus the A/C blower motor. No big deal though the car has been great. I am thinking of trading it in for a new Ford Flex, or keeping it to where I drive it everyday and selling my Truck which has 215,xxx miles and buying my wife a new ford flex. I know, the truck has alot of miles but it doesnt leak/smoke/burn anything. It runs perfect. Anyways, If I keep the suzi, im driving it. I like driving it but parts are expensive so I am torn on what could happen down the road. So Im curious to see how many miles people have put on their Suzuki Grand Vitara.
'06 JLX-L, just hit 100,000km. It's been the most reliable vehicle I've ever owned.
In contrast, the '09 Ford Escape Hybrid with 125,000km, though I like it very much, has been one of the two worst in terms of reliability. I just had to replace the entire steering column, at huge cost, because that generation of Escapes and other Fords have sudden failures of the electric power steering. I'd advise if you buy a used Ford or Chrysler vehicle, get an extended warranty.
