Questions About 2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Suzuki? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Suzuki tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your Grand Vitara towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Grand Vitara is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • 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. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
