I keep seeing a JX Plus model in addition to the JS and standard JX. As far as I know, I have the standard JX, but I can't seem to find out what makes differentiates the JX from the JX Plus. Does anybody know?

Thanks

Plug in your location under "User CP" and tell us the year and maybe we can help. :)

A pic would go a long ways too.

Good suggestion. According to carfax I have a 1999 SUZUKI VITARA JX, so I guess that answers that question.

Max, I updated my location info in my profile and also tried to include a signature. We'll see if it works.

I have the original 1999 brochure in front of me.

The model designations offered were: JS, JS+, JLX and JLX+

what makes differentiates the JX from the JX Plus.
So there wasn't a "JX" per se, so I think you are referring to the JLX. ;)

The JLX differed only with the addition of "4-Wheel ABS", per the documentation that I have.

Hope that helps.

Thanks. I think the JX designation is correct for my plain old (non-Grand) Vitara. I believe the Grand Vitara is JS(+)/JLX(+) and the base Vitara is JS(+)/JX(+). I did a little more looking around and found the specs on the NADA guides website and, according to them, in comparison here is what the JX Plus has that the JX lacks:

Comfort & Convenience:
Air Conditioning-Front
Cruise Control
Keyless Entry
Mirror(s)-Power
Power Locks
Windows-Power

Wheels:
Front Wheel Material: Aluminum
Rear Wheel Material: Aluminum

I guess I must have the Plus model since I have all those (although not sure about the wheels...)

You're correct. The specs that I see and gave you WERE for the "Grand" Vitara, thus the probable letter differences of the models.

The wheel differences should be an easy one. Stamped steel verses aluminum alloy.
