2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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.
  • What can I tow in a Suzuki? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Grand Vitara towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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? Maintaining your Suzuki Grand Vitara transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health.

Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
