Questions About 1989 Suzuki Sidekick’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Suzuki's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to 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 light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Sidekick’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Sidekick is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Sidekick's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Suzuki Sidekick’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
