My 2008 Xl7 has had many problems in the last couple of years. The sunroof has kept leaking into the cabin lights and into the driver's side ceiling requiring 2 visit to a body shop to fix the seal. My transmission control required replacing due to my car jerking between 2nd and 3rd gear. My driver's side window keeps coming off the track. My back doors no longer unlock except from the inside. My right passenger window no longer rolls down at all. Now my paint is peeling above both the driver and passenger windows. The paint looked bumpy and peeled off after a recent storm. Underneath is a white powder coating and it's rusted underneath as well.

My Suzuki xl-7 paint has peeled off the back door and the top of the car a mechanic stated its a triple coat paint job because of the color which is pearl white. The is definitely a manufacture problem but they are pathetic. The paint is peeling so bad I'm scared to wash the vehicle because the paint may come off! then the electrical is worse I get in the door chime goes through the speakers at high volume. The stability control keeps cutting off and on and so does the check engine light.

Because of faulty primer, the paint on my 2008 Xl7 is now peeling off and bubbling. Suzuki refuses to do anything about it. It is too expensive to fix so when I go to trade it in, it will be worth little to nothing. I will never buy another Suzuki again simply based on the lack of customer service. Mine is not the only white Xl7 this has happened to. There are many more complaints when you search the internet where Suzuki has done nothing. It's sad because it was a really classy vehicle and not it looks like a hot mess! it doesn't seem like Suzuki would want their brand being represented like this as you can clearly tell the paint problem was not caused by an accident but is a true defect.

This xl-7 doesn't have 8,000 on it yet ,and the paint is faded really bad already,and there is acid rain spots showing up on the hood and top. I would like to know if Suzuki has any kind of recall on the burgundy pearl paint,due to fading. Will be contacting the dealership very soon ,but would like to know if this is a legitimate problem and a possible report to mention to them. . . Original dealer no longer sell Suzuki,so I have been getting service work done at courtesy Suzuki in irwin PA.
