Your Guide to 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Suzuki Grand Vitara, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Grand Vitara has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Grand Vitara maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Suzuki, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Grand Vitara's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Suzuki Grand Vitara Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Grand Vitara’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Suzuki Grand Vitara battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Suzuki Grand Vitara won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara engine. See Suzuki's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2006 Grand Vitara in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara.

Maintaining your Suzuki Grand Vitara steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Suzuki Grand Vitara 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 Grand Vitara's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Suzuki Grand Vitara maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Suzuki Grand Vitara? 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 does my Suzuki Grand Vitara need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Suzuki Grand Vitara? 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 Grand Vitara 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.
