2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Perhaps your Grand Vitara feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara, bring it in for suspension and steering service. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, bushings, struts, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your Suzuki Grand Vitara’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Suzuki Grand Vitara

Your 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Grand Vitara’s shocks and struts since many factors can impact the wear rate and severity. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be signs of worn Suzuki Grand Vitara shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your Grand Vitara’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2002 Grand Vitara Steering & Suspension Questions

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Suzuki's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Suzuki Grand Vitara get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that the tires connect with the road how Suzuki intended.
  • Does my Suzuki Grand Vitara power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Grand Vitara’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Suzuki's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
