2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara ProblemsOil Leak/Noise Due to Timing Chain Cover Gasket/Tensioner Failure
The timing chain cover gasket and timing chain tensioner may fail, causing an oil leak or excessive noise. Because removing the timing chain is labor intensive, this can be an expensive repair.
The AC condenser fan motor may fail. If this occurs the air conditioning will stop blowing cold air.
There are many reports of low beam head light bulbs burning out prematurely. As of this writing Suzuki has not released a service bulletin addressing this issue. Using only high quality replacement bulbs, and extra care not to touch the bulb surface when handling the new bulb can help extend the life of the replacement bulbs.
