Servicing & MOT
As Suzuki built your car, you can trust us to know all there is to know about servicing and maintaining your vehicle.

Suzuki Servicing & MOT

Regular servicing will maintain your car's overall performance and optimise fuel consumption. It will also help to keep it running efficiently throughout its life. Our expertly trained Dealer technicians, who use special Suzuki diagnostic equipment, are best placed to look after your vehicle at both, service intervals and when your MOT is due.

Suzuki recommends that you service your car once a year or every 9,000 or 12,500 miles* (whichever comes first). Full service details can be found in the service booklet provided with your car. MOT** is a legal requirement for all vehicles 3 years after first registration and is due annually thereafter.

*For correct intervals and pre-2002 registrations please refer to your owners pack or contact your local Dealer

** MOT is not applicable in Northern Ireland

Apart from regular servicing, Suzuki also recommends that you have a bi-annual air conditioning service. This service ensures that all the contaminated gasses are removed, the system re-gassed and a new pollen filter is fitted where applicable. A properly maintained air conditioning system will minimise the draw on engine performance. It will also reduce the risk of possible health issues associated with poorly maintained air conditioning systems.

Service Update and Recall Information

Sometimes during the life of a vehicle, parts may have to be replaced under a manufacturer's service update or recall.

Suzuki is committed to working within the Code of Practice on Safety Defects and therefore service campaigns and recalls are performed whenever necessary. A service campaign is necessary when a Suzuki part is not performing to its optimum standard but the modification is not considered to be safety related. Under a safety recall the last known owner, to Suzuki, is notified of the recall and invited to visit their local Dealer. Both service campaigns and recalls are performed free of charge.

HOW DO I KEEP MY AIR CONDITIONING HEALTHY?

Air-Con Check
Whether you're heading off on holiday or just heading off into town, make sure the journey is as comfortable as possible by ensuring that your air-conditioning system is performing at 100% efficiency.
If you don't use your air-conditioning system for prolonged periods, bacteria and mould spores develop from a combination of condensation and heat from the engine.
Rest assured that your car will be checked by a Suzuki trained technician who knows your car inside and out and cares about it just as much as you do.
As part of your air-conditioning service, we'll check for leaks and damages to pipework, re-gas your air-conditioning system, check air circulation, change pollen filter (if fitted) and check all controls.

HOW DO I CHECK THE ENGINE OIL?

Suzuki Recommends Castrol
Your engine works hard. Over time, wear and tear can impact performance. But if you choose the right oil for your engine, you can help your car work better, for longer.
Absolute commitment to high quality

We’re 100% committed to making sure you get the absolute best out of your car. That’s why Suzuki only recommends Castrol Professional oils.

Castrol Professional oils are specially made for Dealerships. They are formulated to the same high quality as the oil that your car was born with and are exclusively available from your local Suzuki Dealer.

Cleaner and greener performance for petrol cars

For our petrol cars, Castrol Magnatec Professional GF 0W-20 is the perfect oil to keep your fuel economy optimised and your emissions low.

From the moment you turn the key, the intelligent molecules in Castrol Magnatec Professional GF 0W-20's cling like magnets to the engine parts that work the hardest, protecting them from wear and tear.
Greater engine performance for diesel models

For our diesel cars, we recommend Castrol Magnatec Professional C3 5W-30 (all models excluding Grand Vitara* and SX4 S-Cross) and Castrol EDGE Professional C3 0W-30 is the sole recommendation for SX4 S-Cross diesel engines. *For Grand Vitara, please contact your nearest Dealer.

When to top up?

To ensure you are getting the best from your Suzuki engine it is important to make sure your oil is always topped up. If your oil is below the maximum level then you are not getting the best performance or economy from your Suzuki engine. One litre top up packs are available at your local Suzuki Dealership.

Castrol professional oils are only available at your local dealer.
Mot Reminder
More than 1.5 million motorists forget to do something they have to do – take their car for its annual MOT.

Now motorists can use a new free MOT reminder function at www.passmymot.com that sends a reminder before the next testhow is due. Suzuki dealers will perform a free 10-point pre-MOT visual inspection to help the vehicle avoid failing due to simple-to-fix issues.

All MOT and service work carried out is performed by Suzuki-trained technicians so customers can be sure that the warranty will be maintained.
Before any work is carried out the Dealer will notify the customer following an inspection of the vehicle, providing upfront guidance and complete transparency on cost. Customers can be sure of receiving good service, backed by Trading Standards Institute.
Customers can be sure of the best reliability and durability for their vehicles through the use of Suzuki Genuine parts and vehicle software upgrades.
Customer feedback and ratings are generated by the industry's 'Service and Repair Code' operated by Trading Standards Institute-backed body Motor Codes, which also operates a free customer advice line.
Supporting data from existing consumer research:

1. 79% believe technician training has the greatest influence on maximising the safe running of a vehicle.
2. 67% of motorists rated ‘ability to correctly identify faults’ as one of the most important factors affecting quality of work.
3. 71% believe franchised dealerships are more likely to offer ‘value added services’ (courtesy car, car collection / delivery, valet, software upgrades, safety checks).
Is the MOT reminder something you have to have?

Go to www.passmymot.co.uk and set-up a free MOT reminder.

Book your MOT at your nearest Suzuki Dealer to ensure any required rectification work is carried out to the highest standards.

Visit your nearest Suzuki Dealer to receive your free 10-point pre-MOT check.

Help drive even higher standards by providing feedback on the levels of service you receive, through the independent Motor Codes body.
A 'Minute or Two" to Pass Your Mot
Over 1.5 million cars fail their MOT each year because of the smallest of reasons. So by giving your car the once over before you take it in to your Dealer, and pointing out any potential issues when you get there, you stand a much better chance of your car passing first time. Just follow this 10-step guide to the quick-and-easy checks you can make to ensure things run as smoothly as possible. Of course, if you need any extra assistance, your Dealer will be happy to help.

The ‘Minute Or Two’ checklist

1. Headlights and indicators
Check that all of your car’s lights function properly – headlights, sidelights, rear lights, hazard lights and indicators.
2. Brake lights
Press the brake pedal and ask a friend to check that the rear brake lights come on – including any supplementary brake strip light. Alternatively, carefully reverse up to a reflective surface (window, wall or garage door) and look behind to see for yourself.
3 .Number plate
Make sure that the number plate is clean and legible – even a quick wipe with a cloth can make a difference. The font and spacing of letters must also comply with legal requirements to be passed by the MOT station.
4. Wheels and tyres
Check that wheels and tyres are undamaged. The minimum legal tyre tread depth is 1.6mm and any tyres with less than this will be marked as an MOT ‘fail’ (though it’s recommended that tyres are changed when tread reaches 3mm). If you’re in doubt about how much tread is left on a tyre, your local manufacturer main dealer can check for you. The dealer can also advise on the type of tyre that is right for your car if a replacement is required.
5. Seats and seatbelts
The driver's seat should adjust forwards and backwards and all seatbelts should be in good, working order. Test movement of the seat and inspect the seatbelt's full length for damage. Tug sharply on all seatbelts to check that they react as they’re supposed to if you have to brake severely.
6. Windscreen
Check the view out of the front of the car for damage – any damage larger than 40mm will cause a ‘fail’, as will any damage wider than 10mm in the ‘swept’ area of the windscreen in front of the driver.
7. Windscreen wipers
Make sure your wipers are able to keep your windscreen clean – any tears or holes in the wiper rubber can be an MOT fail.
8. Screenwash
Top up the washer bottle before taking the car in for a test – something as simple as an empty container can cause an MOT fail.
9. Horn
Give a short blast of the horn – if it doesn’t work, your dealer will need to repair or replace it.
10 .Fuel and engine oil
Make sure your car is filled with enough fuel and engine oil – you can be turned away from the MOT without suitable levels of either, both of which are required by the dealership when running the car to test its emissions levels. If you are unsure about the type of oil that should be used, ask your manufacturer main dealer.

Note: When checking fluid levels and handling parts that could be become hot to the touch (eg bulbs), it is safest to ensure that the vehicle has had an opportunity to cool down fully.
