1998 Suzuki Esteem Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Suzuki's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Suzuki Esteem? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Esteem’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Esteem's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Suzuki Esteem transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Suzuki. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
