What is the maintenance schedule for the 1996 Suzuki Swift?

Here’s Why 1996 Suzuki Swift Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Suzuki Swift and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Swift has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Swift, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1996 Suzuki Swift!

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; 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. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Swift running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1996 Suzuki Swift problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Suzuki Swift

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1996 Suzuki Swift and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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 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 1996 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. 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 Swift stranded. Your Suzuki Swift won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1996 Suzuki Swift engine. To learn how often Suzuki recommends you have the oil changed in your 1996 Swift, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1996 Suzuki Swift.

Routine upkeep for your Suzuki Swift suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Suzuki Swift steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Suzuki Swift's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Suzuki Swift maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Suzuki Swift cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Suzuki Swift radiator? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1996 Suzuki Swift maintenance and repairs.
