Suzuki Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Suzuki

Suzuki Problems

Low Beam Head Light

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.

Timing Chain Tensioner May Fail

An abnormal noise may develop from the timing chain due to a failed chain tensioner. This condition is generally caused by lack of oil to the timing chain guides. Suzuki may repair this condition free of charge if proper oil changes can be verified. A Rattling Type Noise May be Noted From The Front of the Engine

Oil 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.

Suzuki Recalls

Power Steering Fails

The power steering pump may seize due to an internal clearance issue with the pump body and fluid control valve. Dealers will replace the power steering pump free of charge to resolve the concern.

Transmission Shifter

These vehicles are being recalled because the transmission gear selector can be moved out of the "Park" position without depressing the brake pedal. This could cause the vehicle to roll unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the shift selector in affected vehicles to correct the concern.

Fuel Tank Can Crack And Leak

Spider webs may be found restricting the evaporative canister vent hose, which can result in the fuel tank cracking from negative pressure build up. Dealers will replace the vent line with one that will prevent restriction free of charge to resolve the concern. Any hoses found that have webs in them will result in dealers also replacing the fuel tank.

I have been having power steering problems ever since I purchased the vehicle at 18,000 miles.
