  1. Headlights restoration

    3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    I bought a 2006 GV 3 door lately. The lights were fogged and in bad shape. It took me 15 minutes to restore them. I used a Turtle 🐢 Restoration Kit (you can use it 2-3 times) which I bought for 15 euros 💶. Heres some before and after shots. Before After
  2. 2002 J20A 2.0L Possible bad IAC/Bad MAF

    2G (1999-2005) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    Hi all, I've been having some low idle issues with my 2002 4wd 2.0l 2dr tracker Canada model for about a year now. No check engine light. It hasn't driven very far in a year due to a possibly related no start and rusted gas tank issue which I believe I have fixed. My Vitara always takes a bit...

The whole idea of buying this car was to eventually...

    Hi I am new in this forum and I have a doubt. I have a 96 Vitara and I want to lift it but the problem is that I don't have a lot of money to spend. Do you recommend a suspension pvc kit or do I save for a nice suspension, and what suspension for a low price do you recommend. And I want to...
  5. Buzzing Binnacle

    Only 2000 miles from new, my 2019 Vitara 1.4 auto has developed an intermittent buzzing sound from the instrument binnacle when the car is moving, though not on smooth roads. It stops when I put light pressure on the glass or the top housing. I have tried tightening the scres under the hood of...

    From SK - BC mountains

    When I first bought this the previous owners said "I wouldn't take it to the mountains or anything". Of course, this little beast has taken me all over Canada with zero issues.

  13. Vitara won't start after a seize.

    Sidekick/Escudo/Vitara/ Geo/X-90 &Tracker(’89-’98)
    I have a 1998 Suzuki Vit JLX. I recently experienced a seize due to low oil level (I imagine, or rather hope, that this car is an import with a low oil level engine cut out safety feature). I towed the car to the nearest spares store and poured in the needed oil. We let the oil settle and tried...
