1999 Suzuki Vitara Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Suzuki's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Suzuki Vitara? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Vitara is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my Vitara's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Suzuki Vitara’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Suzuki's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Can Suzuki Vitara transmission fluid leak? Yes, your Suzuki Vitara can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your Vitara ages, parts of the transmission system might wear out or break down, leading to a leak and possible transmission issues.
