What to Know About 2009 Suzuki Equator Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Suzuki Equator, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Equator could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Equator maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2009 Suzuki Equator maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Suzuki themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Equator running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2009 Suzuki Equator problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Suzuki Equator

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2009 Suzuki Equator for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Equator's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2009 Suzuki Equator? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Suzuki Equator battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Equator stranded. Your Suzuki Equator won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2009 Suzuki Equator running newer, longer. To learn how often Suzuki recommends you have the oil changed in your 2009 Equator, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2009 Suzuki Equator? We can help with that, too!

Take an active role in maintaining your 2009 Suzuki Equator. Get answers to common Suzuki Equator maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Suzuki Equator? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Suzuki Equator to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Suzuki Equator? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can Suzuki dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Suzuki Equator in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
