1989 Suzuki Swift Maintenance Schedule

What is the maintenance schedule for the 1989 Suzuki Swift?

Here’s Why 1989 Suzuki Swift Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Suzuki Swift to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Swift has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Swift maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1989 Suzuki Swift!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Suzuki themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Swift perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1989 Suzuki Swift problems later.

Overview of Essential Suzuki Swift Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1989 Suzuki Swift 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Swift. 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.

Could your 1989 Suzuki Swift be ready for a new battery? 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). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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 Swift 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Swift) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Suzuki Swift 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 Swift's engine run smoother. See Suzuki's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1989 Swift in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1989 Suzuki Swift.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Suzuki Swift can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Suzuki Swift 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 Swift's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Suzuki Swift services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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 Swift engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Suzuki Swift? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1989 Suzuki Swift maintenance and repairs.

1989 Suzuki Swift Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 1989 Suzuki Swift. Get answers to common Suzuki Swift maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Suzuki Swift? 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 switch my Suzuki Swift to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Suzuki Swift? 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 I ignore dashboard lights on my Suzuki? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Suzuki Swift in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
