Question about 2001 Suzuki Xl 7
Some 2001-2002 models had serious problem from factory and typically fail within the first 50K-75K miles (but don't bother calling, Suzuki will not do anything about it). The Nippon-Denso compressors used those years occasionally had aluminum chips left over from manufacturing process. Usually the chips get cleaned out before installation into the car but not always. ONLY cure is to replace all components: compressor, both condensers (front and rear), both expansion valves (front and rear), and dryer. AND, before any new components installed, ALL lines must be flushed clean and blown (sucked?) dry. Since the compressors alone are $1200 (from dealer) and total job can run upwards of $2500, you don't want to do this too often. Get it done right the first time!! We did and it's been fine since then.

What exactly do you mean by going out? Is the compressor locking up? Is the freon leaking out? Is it blowing a fuse? You have to be a little more specific.
