Scheduled Maintenance for Your 1989 Suzuki Sidekick

How often should I service my 1989 Suzuki Sidekick?

Here’s Why 1989 Suzuki Sidekick Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Suzuki Sidekick to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Sidekick. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Sidekick maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1989 Suzuki Sidekick!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Suzuki themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Sidekick's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1989 Suzuki Sidekick problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Suzuki Sidekick Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1989 Suzuki Sidekick to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 Sidekick's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1989 Suzuki Sidekick? In general, car batteries only last three to 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 Sidekick 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Sidekick stranded. Your Suzuki Sidekick could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1989 Suzuki Sidekick's engine run smoother. To learn how often Suzuki recommends you have the oil changed in your 1989 Sidekick, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil.

  • When should I have Suzuki Sidekick alignment checked? You know your Suzuki Sidekick better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Suzuki Sidekick? 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 Sidekick engines.
  • 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 Sidekick, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
