2007 Suzuki XL7 4dr SUV

252-horsepower 3.6L V6 5-speed shiftable automatic AWD

13000 mi   Tightened nuts on engine mount (strut type) 
15000   Replaced engine mount (strut type) per TSB 
44000 US $1250 Manumatic linkage box fuses went bad. Suzuki only offers replacement of the entire linkage box ($700+) instead of $30 fuses that mechanic could have easily replaced had they been available from manufacturer. Very frustrating. 
39000 US $100 Whining sound. Oil sludge build up. Timing chain stretched. Only solution offered was engine replacement at $4,970.00 plus tax. Manufacturer would not warranty repair of engine, their opinion the engine was abused. 
18000 US $350 This was the 3rd time in the shop. I traded the junk off. Lost two computers and it still ran poorly. I have never before traded in a car with only 18,000 miles on it.
