2004 Suzuki Grand Vitara Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Suzuki? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Suzuki tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Grand Vitara's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2004 Grand Vitara’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
