    I was in Fort Wayne Indiana picking up a part for my company. Kings Inn Hotel pulled out in front of me. Bang. The driver literally hit the gas and ran from the scene. Luckily, absolutely no damage to my GV although I knocked the whole rear junk off his car. He ran off with his bumper...

    Hi there, I need to get an issue sorted with my 04 manual GV. So far no mechanics have been able to sort it out. Basically when I first start the car each day the revs sit quite high (2000rpm). Then as I change gears the revs kind of bounce on their way down rather than snapping back to the...

    Hi everyone! Nice to have this community which is very informative due to good people that are ready to share their experience and knowledge. I have a plan to buy Grand Vitara 2.0 petrol engine (2007.) My question is does this model have traction control if it has ESP button? Actually the...

    Hi, I’m looking for a third opinion on my 06’ auto GV (V6). We believe she might be have a cracked head or gasket. She was running fine until I drove her one day and she died,she made a clicking/ticking sound (3 or 4 times consistently) and the car slowly just shut down got it towed home. A...

    I have a clunk sound while going over bumps at low speed coming from the front driver and pass wheels. It started last weekend and is getting worse every day. A visual inspection of the front wheel assemblies looks good. No signs of fluid leaking or rust. It drives well on the pavement and...

    Hey y'all, I need some advice. My ac compressor clutch seized last night and broke my ac/ps belt. I have to travel 6 hours still, and was wondering if it would be okay to do it without the belt. I can be fine without power steering or air conditioning, I'm more concerned about any damage to any...

    My GV has recently begun displaying the ABS light and handbrake light at the same time. The entire dash also loses power and does not show temperature, fuel, speed or RPMs. This happens sporadically and comes and goes. I have been to a mechanic which showed no codes and the auto electrician has...

    Hey I have a 2013 Grand Vitara and the rear door has decided to stop working. First it won’t unlock and then when I go to close the door again it just bounces back open. It seems like the locking mechanism isn’t working but I’ve tried to fiddle with it and it seems to be moving fine. Any tips? I...

    I am a complete noob to cars and i just noticed the rear bumper of my 2007 Grand Vitara is falling down. Im not sure if this is gradual or was caused by one discreet event. I just noticed while I was changing tires, so I guess its not critical but it does worry me. I looked up the 2007...
