Daily Inspection Checklist

Before Driving

  1. Make sure that windows, mirrors, lights and reflectors are clean and unobstructed.
  2. Visually check the tyres for the following points:
    • The depth of the tread groove
    • Abnormal wear, cracks and damage
    • loose wheel nuts
    • Existence of foreign material such as nails, stones, etc.
      Refer to “Tyres” in “INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE” section for details.
  3. Look for fluid and oil leakage.

It is normal for water to drip from the air conditioning system while and after use.

  1. Make sure the hood is fully closed and latched.
  2.  Check the headlights, turn signal lights, brake lights and horn for proper operation.
  3. Check the brake pedal feeling and the adjustment condition for the parking brake lever or pedal.
    Refer to “Brakes” in the “INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE” section for details.
  4. Adjust the mirrors.
  5. Make sure that you and all passengers have properly fastened the seat belts.
  6. Make sure that all warning lights come on as the ignition switch is turned to “ON” position.
  7. Check all gauges.
  8. Make sure that the brake system warning light turns off when the parking brake is released.

Once a week, or each time you fill your fuel tank, perform the following under-hood checks:

  1. Engine oil level
  2. Coolant level
  3. Brake fluid level
  4. Battery fluid (acid) level
  5. Windshield washer fluid level

Once a month, or each time you fill your fuel tank, check the tyre pressure using a tyre pressure gauge. Also, check the tyre pressure of the spare tyre.

Engine Oil Consumption

It is normal for the engine to consume some engine oil during normal vehicle operation.
The amount of engine oil consumption depends on the viscosity and quality of the oil and your driving conditions.
More oil is consumed during high-speed driving and when there is frequent acceleration and deceleration. Under high loads, your engine also will consume more oil. A new engine also consumes more oil, since its pistons, piston rings, and cylinder walls have not yet become conditioned. New engines reach the normal level of oil consumption only after approximately 5000 km (3000 miles) driving.

Oil consumption:
Max. 1.0 L per 1000 km
(1 Qt. per 600 miles)

When judging the amount of oil consumption, note that the oil may become diluted and it is difficult to judge the accurate oil level.
As an example, if a vehicle is used for repeated short trips, and consumes a normal amount of oil, the dipstick may not show any drop in the oil level at all, even after 1000 km (600 miles) or more of driving. This is because the oil is gradually becoming diluted with fuel or moisture, making it appear that the oil level has not changed.
You should also be aware that the diluting ingredients evaporate out when the vehicle is subsequently driven at high speeds, such as on an expressway, making it appear that oil is excessively consumed after high-speed driving.

Ignition Switch

To avoid possible injury, do not operate controls by reaching through the steering wheel.


The ignition switch has the following four positions:

This is the normal parking position. It is the only position in which the key can be removed.

You must push in the key to turn it to “LOCK” position. It locks the ignition, and prevents normal use of the steering wheel after the key is removed.
To release the steering lock, insert the key and turn it clockwise to one of the other positions. If you have trouble turning the key to unlock the steering wheel, try turning the steering wheel slightly to the right or left while turning the key.

Accessories such as the radio can operate, but the engine is off.

This is the normal operating position. All electrical systems are on.

This is the position for starting the engine using the starter motor. The key should be released from this position as soon as the engine starts.

Never return the ignition switch to the “LOCK” position and remove the ignition key while the vehicle is moving. The steering wheel will lock and you will not be able to steer the vehicle.
Always return the ignition switch to the “LOCK” position and remove the ignition key when leaving the vehicle even only for a short time. Also do not leave children alone in a parked vehicle. Unattended children may be able to start the vehicle or shift the transmission into “N” (Neutral), which could result in an accident. There is also a danger that children may injure themselves by playing with the moving features of the vehicle. In addition, heat build-up or extremely cold temperatures inside the vehicle can be fatal to children.

    For the protection of a lead-acid battery and a starter motor, do not use the starter motor by turning the key to “START” for more than 12 seconds at a time. If the engine does not starts, turn the key to the “LOCK” position and wait for more than 30 seconds before trying again. If the engine does not start after several attempts, consult a SUZUKI dealer or a qualified workshop.
    Do not leave the ignition switch in the “ON” position if the engine is not running as the battery will discharge.
