The lifters have not proven to be any sort of problem. Every 60,000 miles you should get the valve clearance inspected and adjusted as needed. Not a big deal.

As far as I know, the 2007 and 2008 versions were identical or extremely close to it. It was the 2009 that got different engines, longer nose, upgraded sound insulation, improved rear suspension and feature upgrades.

From Edmunds.com:

The 2008 Suzuki Grand Vitara sees only minor enhancements. These include better sound deadening, redesigned climate controls and a remote fuel door release. A sunroof also becomes standard on the XSport and Luxury trim levels.
