How Often to Get 2010 Suzuki Grand Vitara Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Suzuki Grand Vitara’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Suzuki recommends having your 2010 Suzuki Grand Vitara’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Grand Vitara in the above table. Outside of Suzuki-recommended oil change intervals, your Grand Vitara may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Suzuki if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Suzuki Grand Vitara. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2010 Suzuki Grand Vitara Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Suzuki Grand Vitara engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Grand Vitara’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Suzuki Grand Vitara oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Suzuki Grand Vitara exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
