    Hi guys, another question I am having not luck with. 2001 Vitara 2.0L, 4x4. 190,000 miles. Just started making a periodic loud click when letting off the gas, sounds like it's right under the driver's side but I could be off on that. Crawled underneath and nothing seems loose, u-joints look ok...

    I have a Suzuki Vitara SZT 2017. My navigation system is telling me I am currently in Germany when I am actually in Northern Ireland and when I tested it by asking it to take me somewhere else, my position on the map does not move. I have updated the infotainment system, but have not yet...

    Hey guys! So I was hoping I would get a little info on my car. I’ve only just got myself a Vitara 17 SZ4. It’s a 1.6 2WD. I wanted to know how it handles on the snow as it’s not a AWD. I’ve tried to search online but seems like there’s no much info on this car alone.

    Hello, I own a Suzuki Vitara JX 1998 1.6 8v (3 Door) & on the road it really doesn't handle well. It struggles to keep in a straight line & any slight bumps the car is all over the place. I want to get this rectified but I am unsure on how to proceed. Can someone please give me a bit of...

    I have a 2016 Suzuki escudo(vitara) I had a bad cooling fan then after that and I started to get a heavy idle and a loss of power when reversing up inclines. It doesn't move at all but on flats it does reverse. I have replaced the cooling fan so far, the throttle body so far has been ruled out...

    Hey! I am replacing my rear tailgate/bootlid door on my 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara and haven't been able to find any videos on youtube for help. Has anyone here done this before? I am new to the mechanical world and figuring it out as I go. Last thing I want to do is damage any wires ect. I've got...

    Bought a 1994 2 door vitara recently and it doesn't start. Put a new motor in and when I turn the key neither the fuel relay or the main relay click. The car has no spark either. It used to have an immobiliser but that only inhibited the starter motor. It was removed and wires were returned to...

    Currently have an October 2015 plate Suzuki Vitara and want to fit an Edge twin 12" active 1800w subwoofer into the boot. I have fitted this subwoofer before in an older BMW 1 series I had, it was fairly straight forward however we couldn't wire the speakers directly into the stereo as it didn't...

While inspecting the oil, it looked brand new. battery was replaced within the last 2 weeks, clutch replaced...

    Hi all. I have a 2017 vitara S-TZ which I bought from new and I’m experiencing a very uncomfortable ride. They tyres are the correct pressure but any passengers I have in the back are feeling the impact of any bumps in the road and speed bumps are painful even when the speed is dropped right...

    Hi. I have a 2018 Vitara S All Grip. I got a message a few days ago that the fob battery was low, so I replaced it with a new battery and the message was still there. So I got the spare fob out of storage in the house where it's kept safe to try that in case the fob itself was faulty and I got...
  15. 3G (2006-2014) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    I bought a 2006 GV 3 door lately. The lights were fogged and in bad shape. It took me 15 minutes to restore them. I used a Turtle 🐢 Restoration Kit (you can use it 2-3 times) which I bought for 15 euros 💶. Heres some before and after shots. Before After
  16. 2G (1999-2005) Vitara & Grand Vitara
    Hi all, I've been having some low idle issues with my 2002 4wd 2.0l 2dr tracker Canada model for about a year now. No check engine light. It hasn't driven very far in a year due to a possibly related no start and rusted gas tank issue which I believe I have fixed. My Vitara always takes a bit...

    Hi everyone, I recently bought a 1991 Suzuki Vitara, the 2dr version with a g16a engine. It had no major mechanical issues when bought and now that I got it on its too shape (for a stock car) I have decided to swap my 1.6 to perhaps a 2.0 tops. The whole idea of buying this car was to eventually...

    Hi I am new in this forum and I have a doubt. I have a 96 Vitara and I want to lift it but the problem is that I don't have a lot of money to spend. Do you recommend a suspension pvc kit or do I save for a nice suspension, and what suspension for a low price do you recommend. And I want to...

    Only 2000 miles from new, my 2019 Vitara 1.4 auto has developed an intermittent buzzing sound from the instrument binnacle when the car is moving, though not on smooth roads. It stops when I put light pressure on the glass or the top housing. I have tried tightening the scres under the hood of...

    From SK - BC mountains

    When I first bought this the previous owners said "I wouldn't take it to the mountains or anything". Of course, this little beast has taken me all over Canada with zero issues.
