2001 Suzuki Vitara Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Suzuki? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Suzuki? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Vitara's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2001 Vitara’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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.
