Here’s Why 1997 Suzuki Esteem Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Suzuki Esteem, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Esteem. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Esteem maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1997 Suzuki Esteem maintenance schedule!

Suzuki knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Esteem perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1997 Suzuki Esteem problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Suzuki Esteem Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1997 Suzuki Esteem to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Esteem. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1997 Suzuki Esteem? In general, car batteries only last three to 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 Esteem battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Esteem) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Suzuki Esteem could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1997 Suzuki Esteem's engine run smoother. See Suzuki's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1997 Esteem in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1997 Suzuki Esteem.

Maintaining your Suzuki Esteem steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Suzuki Esteem steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Suzuki Esteem's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Suzuki Esteem maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Suzuki Esteem’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Suzuki Esteem radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1997 Suzuki Esteem maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

1997 Suzuki Esteem Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 1997 Suzuki Esteem. Get answers to common Suzuki Esteem maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Suzuki Esteem alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 1997 Esteem is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Suzuki Esteem? If your Suzuki Esteem has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Suzuki? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Suzuki Esteem, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
