1999 Suzuki Vitara Drivetrain Service

All About 1999 Suzuki Vitara Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Vitara's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Suzuki, from the axles to the transmission. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1999 Suzuki Vitara, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Suzuki's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get Suzuki Vitara Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1999 Suzuki Vitara drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Suzuki Vitara may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Suzuki Vitara.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1999 Suzuki Vitara? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
