Maintenance for Your 2012 Suzuki Kizashi

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2012 Suzuki Kizashi?

Here’s Why 2012 Suzuki Kizashi Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Suzuki Kizashi, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Kizashi. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Kizashi, 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 Kizashi!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Suzuki, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Kizashi running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2012 Suzuki Kizashi problems.

Overview of Essential Suzuki Kizashi Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2012 Suzuki Kizashi to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Kizashi. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2012 Suzuki Kizashi? 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Kizashi may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Suzuki Kizashi battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Suzuki Kizashi won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2012 Suzuki Kizashi running newer, longer. See Suzuki's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2012 Kizashi in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2012 Suzuki Kizashi? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Suzuki Kizashi can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Suzuki Kizashi suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Suzuki Kizashi's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Suzuki Kizashi services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Suzuki Kizashi engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Suzuki Kizashi radiator? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Suzuki Kizashi? 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 does my Suzuki Kizashi need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Suzuki Kizashi engines.
  • Can Suzuki dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Suzuki Kizashi to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
