Then you need to stay in the '99-'03 group of Vitara's, Grand Vitara's and Trackers, but even then (particularly with interior trim pieces) SOME of the colors won't always match (GM vs. Zuk). The hardtops may be different, although somewhat similar in shape, I'd really scrutinize potential donors.Mainly looking for a hardtop and some interior parts
You might be pushing the envelope on some parts there.Vitara, Gr Vitara SUV 97.6 u r,4 1999 2005 Chevrolet Tracker
Tracker SUV 86.6,97.6 u r,4 1999 2004 Suzuki Vitara
So parts compatibility caution should be exercised.The entire risk of its use is with the user
It didn't take me more than about five minutes to pick up a number of instances where attempting to use it as an interchange for a source of replacement parts would lead you seriously astray - as one example - it lists the 2002 Suzuki XL-7 as being the equivalent of a Chevrolet Tracker - the early (01~02 XL-7s did have a front end that was virtually identical in construction to the Grand Vitara/Tracker but from the front suspension going backwards, there were significant differences.This list began in 1990 with a stated need in the Accident Reconstruction community for a centralized source of equivalent vehicles for referring to NHTSA crash tests, since NHTSA does not retest vehicles every year if they have not changed significantly, and generally will only test one sample vehicle of a family of vehicles that may be sold under different brand names but are essentially the same vehicle structurally. As such the focus of the list is primarily frontal collisions (for deriving stiffness coefficients, etc.). There are occasions when, for example, significant interior changes are made in the middle of a model's run which may be relevant to occupant protection but will not be picked up in the list if there are not significant structural changes (i.e. changes in "hard points", wheelbase, etc.) at the same time.
