Here’s Why 2012 Suzuki Grand Vitara Scheduled Maintenance Matters

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 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Grand Vitara, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2012 Suzuki Grand Vitara!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Suzuki, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Grand Vitara running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2012 Suzuki Grand Vitara problems.

Overview of Essential Suzuki Grand Vitara Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2012 Suzuki Grand Vitara for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Grand Vitara's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2012 Suzuki Grand Vitara. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Grand Vitara) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Suzuki Grand Vitara won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2012 Suzuki Grand Vitara engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2012 Grand Vitara. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2012 Suzuki Grand Vitara.

Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Suzuki Grand Vitara steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Suzuki Grand Vitara's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Suzuki Grand Vitara maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Suzuki Grand Vitara cooling, heating, and climate control system.

  • 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 should I use high mileage oil in my Suzuki Grand Vitara? 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? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Suzuki Grand Vitara, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
