  1. 1G (2001-2006) XL-7
    Forgive me for asking the same ol' boring stuff, but after using the search bar and a ton of googling, I'm left confused, as I'm not really mechanically savvy. I got myself and archaic 2001 XL7, auto, which I use as a daily driver but want to set it up for the occasional off road/camping...

    Hi All. Has anyone endeavored to remove the third row seating in your XL7? If so, give me your thoughts on it please. I don't need the people hauling capacity so i'd like to gain some additional storage space.

    Fuel pump is crazy expensive. Anybody find a replacement pump to install? I installed a junkyard pump from equinox but it isn’t working right. I am wondering if the pressure is wrong. Any ideas?

    i Bought a 2005 Grand Vitara XL7 earlier this year of a family member with 95 000km on it with full service record and all. I services it on 97500km and it was running a treat until last friday with 99800km, when a tick that used to only be around at start up while engine was cold, decided it...

    I just bought a 2002 XL-7 that has no keyless fob and I'm wondering what is the procedure to start the car up. I had another 2002 XL-7 that I let go off about a year ago and that one had a fob, so I'm not familiar with starting the car up without one. I was told I gotta turn the switch on for a...

    My 4wd is not working. The lights in the dash will show it is engaged but no power to the front wheels. I replaced the actuator on the front axle and still nothing. Verified the gear turns when you hit the switch inside the vehicle so I know I have power to the actuator. The old actuator...

    Hello, I have a 2008 Suzuki XL7. I replaced the gauge cluster and I am receiving a "service all wheel drive" notification. I am assuming that the car that the cluster came out of was an AWD. Is There a way to clear this? Thanks, Ev

    Hello all, my dad is a new XL7 owner as he has given up on BMW for reliability problems. Our issue is we are pulling codes for idle air control valve and misfires in cylinders 1, 3 and 5. He replaced spark plugs and coils to no avail. What would y’all recommend next? Thanks in advance

  13. 2G (2007+) XL7
    Hello all: I bought my wife a 2008 XL7 and have been having a myriad of problems that seem random, leading me to think the main ECM is wonky. Shortly after buying, the control cluster started pushing a 'service traction control' warning, sometimes paired with 'engine power reduced'. The latter...
