2008 Suzuki Grand Vitara Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Suzuki's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. 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 volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Grand Vitara towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Grand Vitara's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Suzuki Grand Vitara’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
