60MK0-14E
FUEL RECOMMENDATION
Fuel Recommendation
If the “RON 95” label is attached, you must
use unleaded gasoline with an octane
number (RON) of 95 or higher.
Gasoline Engine
Gasoline/Ethanol blends
Blends of unleaded gasoline and ethanol
(grain alcohol), also known as gasohol, are
commercially available in some areas.
Blends of this type may be used in your
vehicle if they are no more than 20% ethanol. Make sure the gasoline-ethanol blend
fuel has octane ratings no lower than those
recommended for pure gasoline.
NOTICE
Be careful not to spill fuel containing
alcohol while refueling. If fuel is
spilled on the vehicle body, wipe it up
immediately. Fuels containing alcohol can cause paint damage, which is
not covered under the New Vehicle
Limited Warranty.
NOTICE
EXAMPLE
60MK040
If your vehicle is not fitted with a restrictor
in the fuel filler pipe then you may use
leaded or unleaded gasoline with an
octane number (RON) of 85 or higher.
Note, it is preferable to use unleaded gasoline.
If your vehicle is fitted with a restrictor in
the fuel filler pipe then you must use
unleaded gasoline with an octane number
(RON) of 91 or higher (or RON of 95 or
higher if it is stated on the fuel filler lid).
These vehicles are also identified by a
label attached near the fuel filler pipe that
states: “UNLEADED FUEL ONLY”, “NUR
UNVERBLEITES BENZIN”, “ENDAST
BLYFRI BENSIN” or “SOLO GASOLINA
SIN PLOMO”.
The fuel tank has an air space to
allow for fuel expansion in hot
weather. If you continue to add fuel
after the filler nozzle has automatically shut off or an initial blowback
occurs, the air chamber will become
full. Exposure to heat when fully
fuelled in this manner will result in
leakage due to fuel expansion. To
prevent such fuel leakage, stop filling
after the filler nozzle has automatically shut off, or when using an alternative non-automatic system, initial
vent blowback occurs.

Keys
Immobilizer System
EXAMPLE
54G489
This system is designed to help prevent
vehicle theft by electronically disabling the
engine starting system.
The engine can be started only with your
vehicle’s original immobilizer ignition key
which has an electronic identification code
programmed into it. The key communicates the identification code to the vehicle
when the ignition switch is turned to the
“ON” position. If you need to make spare
keys, see your SUZUKI dealer. The vehicle
must be programmed with the correct identification code for the spare keys. A key
made by an ordinary locksmith will not
work.
Your vehicle comes with a pair of identical
keys. Keep the spare key in a safe place.
One key can open all of the locks on the
vehicle.
The key identification number is stamped
on a metal tag provided with the keys or on
the keys. Keep the tag (if equipped) in a
safe place. If you lose your keys, you will
need this number to have new keys made.
Write the number below for your future reference.
KEY NUMBER:
immobilizer system. Ask your SUZUKI
dealer to inspect the system.
NOTE:
• If you lose your immobilizer ignition key,
see your SUZUKI dealer as soon as possible to have the lost one deactivated,
then have the new key made by them.
• If you own other vehicles with immobilizer keys, keep those keys away from
the ignition switch when using your
SUZUKI, or the engine may not be
started because they may interfere with
your SUZUKI’s immobilizer system.
• If you attach any metal objects to the
immobilizer key, it may not start the
engine.
NOTICE
80JM122
If the immobilizer system light blinks when
the ignition switch is in the “ON” position,
the engine will not start.
The immobilizer key is a sensitive
electronic instrument. To avoid damaging the immobilizer key:
• Do not expose it to impacts, moisture or high temperature such as
on the dashboard under direct sunlight.
• Keep the immobilizer key away
from magnetic objects.
NOTE:
If this light blinks, turn the ignition switch to
the “LOCK” position, then turn it back to the
“ON” position.
If the light still blinks with the ignition switch
turned to the “ON” position, there may be
something wrong with your key or with the

60MK0-14E
BEFORE DRIVING
NOTE:
• The theft deterrent alarm system generates alarms when any of the predetermined conditions is met. However, the
system does not have any function of
blocking unauthorized entry into your
vehicle.
• Always use the keyless entry system
transmitter to unlock the doors when the
theft deterrent alarm system has been
armed. Using a key instead will trigger
the alarm.
• If a person who does not know the theft
deterrent alarm system is going to drive
your vehicle, we recommend you explain
the system and its operation to the person, or disable the system beforehand.
Mistakenly triggering the alarm may
cause a nuisance to others.
• Even if the theft deterrent alarm system
is armed, you should still be careful to
guard against theft. Do not leave money
or things of value in your vehicle.
How to arm the theft deterrent alarm
system (when enabled)
Lock the doors using the keyless entry system transmitter. The theft deterrent light (1)
will start blinking, and the theft deterrent
alarm system will be armed in about 20
seconds.
While the system is being armed, the indicator continues to blink at approximately 2second intervals.
NOTE:
• To prevent the alarm from being accidentally triggered, avoid arming it while anyone remains inside the vehicle. The
alarm will be triggered if any person
inside unlocks a door by operating the
lock lever or power door locking switch.
• The theft deterrent alarm system is not
armed when all doors are locked using
the key from outside, or using the door
lock levers or the power door locking
switch from inside.
• If any of the doors is not operated within
approximately 30 seconds after the
doors have been unlocked using the keyless entry system transmitter, the doors
are automatically locked again. At the
same time, the theft deterrent alarm system is armed if the system is in the
enabled state.

How to disarm the theft deterrent alarm
system
Simply unlock the doors using the keyless
entry system transmitter. The theft deterrent light will go out, indicating that the
theft deterrent alarm system is disarmed.

60MK0-14E
BEFORE DRIVING
How to stop the alarm
Should the alarm be triggered accidentally,
turn the ignition switch to “ON” position.
The alarm will then stop.
NOTE:
• Even after the alarm has stopped, if you
lock the doors using the keyless entry
system transmitter, the theft deterrent
alarm system will be rearmed with a
delay of about 20 seconds.
• If you disconnect the battery while the
theft deterrent alarm system is in the
armed condition or the alarm is actually
in operation, the alarm will be triggered
or re-triggered when the battery is then
reconnected, although, in the latter case,
the alarm remains stopped for the period
between disconnection and reconnection of the battery.
• Even after the alarm has stopped at the
end of the predetermined operation time,
it will be triggered again if any door is
opened without disarming the theft
deterrent alarm system.
Checking whether the alarm has been
triggered during parking
If the alarm was triggered due to an unauthorized entry into the vehicle and you then
turn the ignition switch to “ON” position, the
theft deterrent light will blink rapidly for
about 8 seconds and a buzzer will beep 4
times during this period. If this happens,
check whether your vehicle has been broken into while you were away from it.
Enabling and disabling the theft deterrent alarm system
The theft deterrent alarm system can be
either “enabled” or “disabled”.
When enabled (factory setting)
When the system is enabled, it causes the
hazard warning lights to flash for about 40
seconds if any of the alarm trigger conditions is met. The system also causes the
interior buzzer to beep intermittently for
about 10 seconds, which is followed by
intermittent sounding of the horn for about
30 seconds.
The theft deterrent light continues to blink
during this time.
How to switch the state of the theft
deterrent alarm system
You can switch the theft deterrent alarm
system from the enabled state to the disabled state, and vice versa, using the following method.

WARNING
(Continued)
• Seat belts should never be worn
with the straps twisted and should
be adjusted as tightly as is comfortable to provide the protection
for which they have been designed.
A slack belt will provide less protection than one which is snug.
• Make sure that each seat belt
buckle is inserted into the proper
buckle catch. It is possible to cross
the buckles in the rear seat.

Lap-Shoulder Belt
WARNING
(Continued)
• Never use the same seat belt on
more than one occupant and never
attach a seat belt over an infant or
child being held on an occupant’s
lap. Such seat belt use could cause
serious injury in the event of an
accident.
• Periodically inspect seat belt
assemblies for excessive wear and
damage. Seat belts should be
replaced if webbing becomes
frayed, contaminated, or damaged
in any way. It is essential to replace
the entire seat belt assembly after it
has been worn in a severe impact,
even if damage to the assembly is
not obvious.
• Children age 12 and under should
ride properly restrained in the rear
seat.
• Infants and small children should
never be transported unless they
are properly restrained. Restraint
systems for infants and small children can be purchased locally and
should be used. Make sure that the
system you purchase meets applicable safety standards. Read and
follow all the directions provided by
the manufacturer.
(Continued)
WARNING
(Continued)
• For children, if the shoulder belt
irritates the neck or face, move the
child closer to the center of the
vehicle.
• Avoid contamination of seat belt
webbing by polishes, oils, chemicals, and particularly battery acid.
Cleaning may safely be carried out
using mild soap and water.
• Do not insert any items such as
coins, clips, etc. into the seat belt
buckles, and be careful not to spill
liquids into these parts. If foreign
materials get into a seat belt
buckle, the seat belt may not work
properly.
• All seatbacks should always be in
an upright position when driving,
or seat belt effectiveness may be
reduced. Seat belts are designed to
offer maximum protection when
seatbacks are in the upright position.
Emergency Locking Retractor (ELR)
The seat belt has an emergency locking
retractor (ELR), which is designed to lock
the seat belt only during a sudden stop or
impact. It also may lock if you pull the belt
across your body very quickly. If this happens, let the belt go back to unlock it, then
pull the belt across your body more slowly.

SUZUKI highly recommends that you use
a child restraint system to restrain infants
and small children. Many different types of
child restraint systems are available; make
sure that the restraint system you select
meets applicable safety standards.
All child restraint systems are designed to
be secured in vehicle seats by either seat
belts (lap belts or the lap portion of lapshoulder belts). Whenever possible,
SUZUKI recommends that child restraint
systems be installed on the rear seat.
According to accident statistics, children
are safer when properly restrained in rear
seating positions than in front seating positions.
If you must use a front-facing child restraint
in the front passenger’s seat, adjust the
passenger’s seat as far back as possible.
NOTE:
Observe any statutory regulation about
child restraints.

How the System Works
In a frontal collision, the crash sensors will
detect rapid deceleration, and if the controller judges that the deceleration represents a severe frontal crash, the controller
will trigger the inflators. The inflators inflate
the appropriate air bags with nitrogen or
argon gas. The inflated air bags provide a
cushion for your head and upper body. The
air bag inflates and deflates so quickly that
you may not even realize that it has activated. The air bag will neither hinder your
view nor make it harder to exit the vehicle.
Air bags must inflate quickly and forcefully
in order to reduce the chance of serious or
fatal injuries. However, an unavoidable
consequence of the quick inflation is that
the air bag may irritate bare skin, such as
the facial area against a front air bag. Also,
upon inflation, a loud noise will occur and
some powder and smoke will be released.
These conditions are not harmful and do
not indicate a fire in the vehicle. Be aware,
however, that some air bag components
may be hot for a while after inflation.
A seat belt helps keep you in the proper
position for maximum protection when an
air bag inflates. Adjust your seat as far
back as possible while still maintaining
control of the vehicle. Sit fully back in your
seat; sit up straight; do not lean over the
steering wheel or dashboard. Please refer
to the “Seat Adjustment” section and the
“Seat Belts and Child Restraint Systems”
in this section for details on proper seat
and seat belt adjustments.
WARNING
• The driver should not lean over the
steering wheel. The front passenger should not rest his or her body
against the dashboard, or otherwise get too close to the dashboard. In these situations, the outof-position occupant would be too
close to an inflating air bag, and
may suffer severe injury.
• Do not attach any objects to, or
place any objects over, the steering
wheel or dashboard. Do not place
any objects between the air bag
and the driver or front passenger.
These objects may interfere with air
bag operation or may be propelled
by the air bag in the event of a
crash. Either of these conditions
may cause severe injury.

2-34
60MK0-14E
BEFORE DRIVING
Note that even though your vehicle may be
moderately damaged in a collision, the collision may not have been severe enough to
trigger the air bags to inflate. If your vehicle
sustains ANY front-end or side damage,
have the air bag system inspected by an
authorized SUZUKI dealer to ensure it is in
proper working order.
Your vehicle is equipped with a diagnostic
module which records information about
the air bag system if the air bags deploy in
a crash. The module records information
about overall system status, which sensors
activated the deployment.
Servicing the air bag system
If the air bags inflate, have the air bags and
related components replaced by an authorized SUZUKI dealer as soon as possible.
Scrapping a vehicle that has an uninflated
air bag can be hazardous. Ask your dealer,
body repair shop or scrap yard for help
with disposal.
If your vehicle ever gets in deep water and
the driver’s floor is submerged, the air bag
controller could be damaged. If it does,
have the air bag system inspected by the
SUZUKI dealer as soon as possible.
Special procedures are required for servicing or replacing an air bag. For that reason,
only an authorized SUZUKI dealer should
be allowed to service or replace your air
bags. Please remind anyone who services
your SUZUKI that it has air bags.
Service on or around air bag components
or wiring must be performed only by an
authorized SUZUKI dealer. Improper service could result in unintended air bag
deployment or could render the air bag
inoperative. Either of these two conditions
may result in severe injury.
To prevent damage or unintended inflation
of the air bag system, be sure the battery
is disconnected and the ignition switch has
been in the “LOCK” position for at least 90
seconds before performing any electrical
service work on your SUZUKI. Do not
touch air bag system components or wires.
The wires are wrapped with yellow tape or
yellow tubing, and the couplers are yellow
for easy identification.

Warning and Indicator Lights
Brake System Warning Light
If the brake system warning light comes on
while you are driving the vehicle, it may
mean that there is something wrong with
the vehicle’s brake system. If this happens,
you should:
1) Pull off the road and stop carefully.
WARNING
Three different types of operations exist
depending on the vehicle’s specification.
Remember that stopping distance
may be longer, you may have to push
harder on the pedal, and the pedal
may go down farther than normal.
1) The light comes on briefly when the
ignition switch is turned to the “ON”
position.
2) The light comes on when the parking
brake is engaged with the ignition
switch in the “ON” position.
3) The light comes on when under either
or both of above two conditions.
2) Test the brakes by carefully starting and
stopping on the shoulder of the road.
– If you determine that it is safe, drive
cautiously at low speed to the nearest
dealer for repairs, or
– Have the vehicle towed to the nearest
dealer for repairs.
65D477
The light also comes on when the fluid in
the brake fluid reservoir falls below the
specified level.
The light should go out after starting the
engine and fully releasing the parking
brake, if the fluid level in the brake fluid reservoir is adequate.
The light also comes on together with the
ABS warning light when the rear brake
force control function (proportioning valve
function) of the ABS system fails.
WARNING
If any of the following conditions
occur, you should immediately ask
your SUZUKI dealer to inspect the
brake system.
• If the brake system warning light
does not go out after the engine
has been started and the parking
brake has been fully released.
• If the brake system warning light
does not come on when the ignition switch is turned to the “ON”
position.
• If the brake system warning light
comes on at any time during vehicle operation.
NOTE:
Because the brake system is self-adjusting, the fluid level will drop as the brake
pads become worn. Replenishing the
brake fluid reservoir is considered normal
periodic maintenance.
NOTE:
(Parking Brake Reminder Buzzer)
A buzzer sounds intermittently to remind
you to release the parking brake if you
start the vehicle without releasing the parking brake. Make sure that the parking

2) Turn the ignition switch to “LOCK” and
then start the engine again.
If the warning light comes on briefly then
turns off, the system is normal. If the warning light still stays on, the system will be
something wrong.
If the light and the brake system warning
light stay on, or come on simultaneously
when driving, your ABS system is
equipped with the rear brake force control
function (proportioning valve function) and
there may be something wrong with both
the rear brake force control function and
anti-lock function of the ABS system.
50G051
This light comes on when the ignition
switch is turned to the “ON” position, and
goes out when the engine is started. The
light will come on and remain on if there is
insufficient oil pressure. If the light comes

To turn the windshield wipers on, move the
lever down to one of the three operating
positions. In the “INT” position, the wipers
operate intermittently. The “INT” position is
very convenient for driving in mist or light
rain. In the “LO” position, the wipers operate at a steady low speed. In the “HI” position, the wipers operate at a steady high
speed. To turn off the wipers, move the
lever back to the “OFF” position.
Move the lever up and hold it to the “MIST”
position, the windshield wipers will turn on
continuously at low speed.
To spray windshield washer fluid, pull the
lever toward you. The windshield wipers
will automatically turn on at low speed if
they are not already on and the “INT” position is equipped.
WARNING
• To prevent windshield icing in cold
weather, turn on the defroster to
heat the windshield before and during windshield washer use.
• Do not use radiator antifreeze in
the windshield washer reservoir. It
can severely impair visibility when
sprayed on the windshield, and can
also damage your vehicle’s paint.
To help prevent damage to the windshield wiper and washer system
components, you should take the following precautions:
• Do not continue to hold in the lever
when there is no windshield
washer fluid being sprayed or the
washer motor can be damaged.
• Do not attempt to remove dirt from
a dry windshield with the wipers or
you can damage the windshield
and the wiper blades. Always wet
the windshield with washer fluid
before operating the wipers.
• Clear ice or packed snow from the
wiper blades before using the wipers.
• Check the washer fluid level regularly. Check it often when the
weather is bad.
• Only fill the washer fluid reservoir
3/4 full during cold weather to allow
room for expansion if the temperature falls low enough to freeze the
solution.

Exhaust Gas Warning
WARNING
52D334
WARNING
Avoid breathing exhaust gases.
Exhaust gases contain carbon monoxide, a potentially lethal gas that is
colorless and odorless. Since carbon
monoxide is difficult to detect by
itself, be sure to take the following
precautions to help prevent carbon
monoxide from entering your vehicle.
• Do not leave the engine running in
garages or other confined areas.
(Continued)
(Continued)
• Do not park with the engine running for a long period of time, even
in an open area. If it is necessary to
sit for a short time in a parked vehicle with the engine running, make
sure the air intake selector is set to
“FRESH AIR” and the blower is at
high speed.
• Avoid operating the vehicle with
the tailgate or trunk open. If it is
necessary to operate the vehicle
with the tailgate or trunk open,
make sure the sunroof (if equipped)
and all windows are closed, and the
blower is at high speed with the air
intake selector set to “FRESH AIR”.
• To allow proper operation of your
vehicle’s ventilation system, keep
the air inlet grille in front of the
windshield clear of snow, leaves or
other obstructions at all times.
• Keep the exhaust tailpipe area clear
of snow and other material to help
reduce the buildup of exhaust
gases under the vehicle. This is
particularly important when parked
in blizzard conditions.
• Have the exhaust system inspected
periodically for damage and leaks.
Any damage or leaks should be
repaired immediately.
Daily Inspection Checklist
Before Driving

1) Make sure that windows, mirrors, lights
and reflectors are clean and unobstructed.
2) Visually check the tires 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 “Tires” in “INSPECTION AND
MAINTENANCE” section for details.
3) Look for fluid and oil leaks.
NOTE:
It is normal for water to drip from the air

“INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE”
section for lubrication schedule.
WARNING
Make sure the hood is fully closed
and latched before driving. If it is not,
it can fly up unexpectedly during
driving, obstructing your view and
resulting in an accident.
Once a month, or each time you fill your
fuel tank, check the tire pressure using a
tire pressure gauge. Also check the tire
pressure of the spare tire.
Engine Oil Consumption
It is normal for the engine to consume
some engine oil during normal vehicle
operation.
The amount of engine oil consumed
depends on the viscosity of the oil, the
quality of the oil and the conditions the
vehicle is driven under.
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.
Once a week, or each time you fill your fuel
tank, perform the following under-hood
checks:
Oil consumption:
Max. 1.0 L per 1000 km
(1 Qt. per 600 miles)
1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
When judging the amount of oil consumption, note that the oil may become diluted
and make it difficult to accurately judge the
true 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

60MK0-14E
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
WARNING
If water gets into the brake drums,
brake performance may become poor
and unpredictable. After driving
through water or washing the underside of the vehicle, test the brakes
while driving at a slow speed to see if
they have maintained their normal
effectiveness. If the brakes are less
effective than normal, dry them by
repeatedly applying the brakes while
driving slowly until the brakes have
regained their normal effectiveness.
WARNING
Even without reserve power in the
brake system, you can still stop the
vehicle by pressing the brake pedal
harder than normally required. However, the stopping distance may be
longer.
Brake Assist System (if equipped)
When you slam the brakes on, the brake
assist system judges as an emergency
stop and provides more powerful braking
for a driver who cannot hold down the
brake pedal firmly.
Power-Assisted Brakes
Your vehicle has power-assisted brakes. If
power assistance is lost due to a stalled
engine or other failures, the system is still
fully operational on reserve power and you
can bring the vehicle to a complete stop by
pressing the brake pedal once and holding
it down. The reserve power is partly used
up when you depress the brake pedal and
reduces each time the pedal is pressed.
Apply smooth and even pressure to the
pedal. Do not pump the pedal.
NOTE:
If you quickly and forcefully depress the
brakes, you may hear a clicking sound in
the brake pedal. This is normal and indicates that the brake assist system is activated properly.
Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)
(if equipped)
ABS will help you avoid skidding by electronically controlling braking pressure. It
will also help you maintain steering control
when braking on slippery surfaces or when
braking hard.
The ABS works automatically, so you do
not need any special braking technique.
Just push the brake pedal down without
pumping. The ABS will operate whenever it
senses that the wheels are locking up. You
may feel the brake pedal moves a little
while the ABS is operating.
NOTE:
The ABS will not work if vehicle speed is
under about 10 km/h (6mph).
WARNING
• On some types of loose surfaces
(such as gravel, snow-covered
roads, etc.) the stopping distance
required for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be slightly greater than for
a comparable vehicle with a conventional brake system. With a
conventional brake system, skidding tires are able to “plow” the
gravel or snow layer, shortening
the stopping distance. ABS minimizes this resistance effect. Allow
for extra stopping distance when
driving on loose surfaces.
• On regular paved roads, some drivers may be able to obtain slightly
shorter stopping distances with
conventional brake systems than
with ABS.

easily skid or the vehicle can even
spin in the worst case when braking on a slippery road or when hard
braking even on a dry paved road.
Ask your SUZUKI dealer to inspect
the ABS system immediately. Drive
carefully, avoiding hard braking as
much as possible.
A computer continuously monitors wheel
speed. The computer compares the
changes in wheel speed when braking. If
the wheels slow suddenly, indicating a
skidding situation, the computer will
change braking pressure several times
each second to prevent the wheels from
locking. When you start your vehicle or
when you accelerate after a hard stop, you
may hear a momentary motor or clicking
noise as the system resets or checks itself.
WARNING
The ABS may not work properly if
tires or wheels other than those
specified in the owner’s manual are
used. This is because the ABS works
by comparing changes in wheel
speed. When replacing tires or
wheels, use only the size and type
specified in this owner’s manual.

WARNING
• Wear Your Seat Belts at All Times.
Even though air bags are equipped
at the front seating positions, the
driver and all passengers should
be properly restrained at all times,
using the seat belts provided. Refer
to the “Seat Belts and Child
Restraint Systems” section for
instructions on proper use of the
seat belts.
• Never drive while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs.
Alcohol and drugs can seriously
impair your ability to drive safely,
greatly increasing the risk of injury
to yourself and others. You should
also avoid driving when you are
tired, sick, irritated, or under
stress.
The future performance and reliability of the engine depends on the care
and restraint exercised during its
early life. It is especially important to
observe the following precautions
during the initial 960 km (600 miles)
of vehicle operation.
• After starting, do not race the
engine. Warm it up gradually.
• Avoid prolonged vehicle operation
at a constant speed. Moving parts
will break in better if you vary your
speed.
• Start off from a stop slowly. Avoid
full throttle starts.
• Avoid hard braking, especially during the first 320 km (200 miles) of
driving.
• Do not drive slowly with the transaxle in a high gear.
• Drive the vehicle at moderate
engine speeds.
• Do not tow a trailer during the first
960 km (600 miles) of vehicle operation.
EXAMPLE
80G106
The purpose of the catalytic converter is to
minimize the amount of harmful pollutants
in your vehicle’s exhaust. Use of leaded
fuel in vehicles equipped with catalytic
converters is prohibited, because lead
deactivates the pollutant-reducing components of the catalyst system.
The converter is designed to last the life of
the vehicle under normal usage and when
unleaded fuel is used. No special maintenance is required on the converter. However, it is very important to keep the engine
properly tuned. Engine misfiring, which
can result from an improperly tuned
engine, may cause overheating of the catalyst. This may result in permanent heat
damage to the catalyst and other vehicle
components.
4-1
60MK0-14E
DRIVING TIPS
Improving Fuel Economy
NOTICE
To avoid damaging catalyst or other
vehicle damage:
• Maintain the engine in the proper
operating condition.
• In the event of an engine malfunction, particularly one involving
engine misfiring or other apparent
loss of performance, have the vehicle serviced promptly.
• Do not turn off the engine or interrupt the ignition when the transaxle
is in gear and the vehicle is in
motion.
• Do not try to start the engine by
pushing or towing the vehicle, or
coasting down a hill.
• Do not idle the engine with any
spark plug wires disconnected or
removed, such as during diagnostic testing.
• Do not idle the vehicle for prolonged periods if idling seems
rough or there are other malfunctions.
• Do not allow the fuel tank to get
near the empty level.
• Avoid driving your vehicle at excessively high engine speed in or
around the red zone of the tachometer (if equipped).
The following instructions will help you
improve fuel economy.
Avoid excessive idling
If you are to wait for more than a minute
while you are parked, stop the engine and
start it again later. When warming up a
cold engine, allow the engine to idle until
the temperature gauge pointer comes up
to the “C” position (if the idling is not prohibited). In this position, the engine is sufficiently warm for starting off.
54G584S
WARNING
Be careful in areas where you park
and drive; the catalytic converter and
other exhaust components can get
very hot. As with any vehicle, do not
park or operate this vehicle in areas
where combustible materials such as
dry grass or leaves can come in contact with a hot exhaust system.
Avoid “fast” starts
Fast starts away from lights or stop signs
will consume fuel unnecessarily and
shorten engine life. Start off slowly.
Avoid unnecessary stops
Avoid unnecessary deceleration and stopping. Try to maintain a slow, steady speed
whenever possible. Slowing down and then
accelerating again uses more fuel.
Keep a steady cruising speed
Keep as constant a speed as road and traffic conditions will permit.
4-2
60MK0-14E
DRIVING TIPS
Highway Driving
Keep the air cleaner clean
EXAMPLE
60A183S
If the air cleaner is clogged with dust, there
will be greater intake resistance, resulting
in decreased power output and increased
fuel consumption.
Keep weight to a minimum
The heavier the load, the more fuel the
vehicle consumes. Take out any luggage
or cargo when it is not necessary.
Keep tire pressures correct
Underinflation of the tires can waste fuel
due to increased running resistance of the
tires. Keep your tires inflated to the correct
pressure shown on the label on the driver’s
side door or the driver’s door lock pillar.
When driving at highway speeds, pay
attention to the following:
• Stopping
distance
progressively
increases with vehicle speed. Apply the
brakes far enough ahead of the stopping
point to allow for the extra stopping distance.
• On rainy days, “Hydroplaning” can occur.
“Hydroplaning” is the loss of direct contact between the road surface and the
vehicle’s tires due to a water film forming
between them. Steering or braking the
vehicle while “Hydroplaning” can be very
difficult, and loss of control can occur.
Keep speed down when the road surface
is wet.
• At high speeds, the vehicle may be
affected by side winds. Therefore,
reduce speed and be prepared for unexpected buffeting, which can occur at the
exits of tunnels, when passing by a cut of
a hill, or when being overtaken by large
vehicles, etc.
Driving on Hills
58MS20401
• When climbing steep hills, the vehicle
may begin to slow down and show a lack
of power. If this happens, you should
shift to a lower gear so that the engine
will again be operating in its normal
power range. Shift rapidly to prevent the
vehicle from losing momentum.
• When driving down a hill, the engine
should be used for braking by shifting to
next lower gear. (Do this with EITHER an
automatic or manual transaxle.)
4-3
60MK0-14E
DRIVING TIPS
WARNING
Driving on Slippery Roads
Try not to hold the brake pedal down
too long or too often while going
down a steep or long hill. This could
cause the brakes to overheat, resulting in reduced braking efficiency.
Failure to take this precaution could
result in loss of vehicle control.
Tire chains should only be used if they are
needed to increase traction or are required
by law. Make sure that the chains you use
are the correct size for your vehicle’s tires.
Also make sure that there is enough clearance between the fenders and the chains
as installed on the tires.
Install the chains on the front tires tightly,
according to the chain manufacturer’s
instructions. Retighten the chains after
driving about 1.0 km (1/2 mile) if necessary. With the chains installed, drive slowly.
NOTICE
When descending a down hill,
NEVER turn the ignition key to the
“OFF” position. Emission control
system and automatic transaxle damage may result.
Tire Chains
NOTICE
60G089S
Under wet road conditions you should
drive at a lower speed than on dry roads
due to possible slippage of tires during
braking. When driving on icy, snow-covered, or muddy roads, reduce your speed
and avoid sudden acceleration, abrupt
braking, or sharp steering movements.
• If you hear the chains hitting
against the vehicle body while driving, stop and tighten them.
• If your vehicle is equipped with full
wheel caps, remove the wheel caps
before installing the chains or the
wheel caps can be damaged by the
chain bands.
4-4
60MK0-14E
DRIVING TIPS
If Your Vehicle Gets Stuck
If your vehicle gets stuck in snow, mud, or
sand, follow the directions below:
1) Shift the transaxle back and forth
between a forward range (or first gear
for manual transaxle) and reverse. This
will create a rocking motion which may
give you enough momentum to free the
vehicle. Press gently on the accelerator
to keep wheel spinning to a minimum
wheel rpm. Remove your foot from the
accelerator while shifting.
Do not race the engine. Excessive
wheel spin will cause the tires to dig
deeper, making it more difficult to free
the vehicle.
2) If your vehicle remains stuck after a few
minutes of rocking, get another vehicle
to pull your vehicle out.
NOTICE
WARNING
Do not allow anyone to stand near the
vehicle when you are rocking it, and
do not spin the wheels faster than an
indicated 40 km/h (25 mph) on the
speedometer. Personal injury and/ or
vehicle damage may result from spinning the wheels too fast.
WARNING
Do not continue rocking the vehicle
for more than a few minutes. Prolonged rocking can cause engine
overheating or transaxle damage.
54G638S
WARNING
In addition to following the driving
tips in this section, it is important to
observe the following precautions.
• Make sure your tires are in good
condition and always maintain the
specified tire pressure. Refer to
“Tires” in the “INSPECTION AND
MAINTENANCE”
section
for
details.
(Continued)
(Continued)
• Do not use tires other than those
specified by SUZUKI. Never use different sizes or types of tires on the
front and rear wheels. For information regarding the specified tires,
refer to the Tire Information Label
located on the driver’s door lock
pillar.
• Never use oversized tires or special
shock absorbers and springs to
raise (jack up) your vehicle. This
will change the handling characteristics. Oversized tires may also rub
against the fender over bumps,
causing vehicle damage or tire failure.
• After driving through water, test the
brakes while driving at a slow
speed to see if they have maintained their normal effectiveness. If
the brakes are less effective than
normal, dry them by repeatedly
applying the brakes while driving
slowly until the brakes have
regained their normal effectiveness.

OTHER CONTROLS AND EQUIPMENT
blower speed selector to a position other
than “OFF”.
Normal cooling
Set the air flow selector to “VENTILATION”,
the temperature selector to the desired
temperature position (other than “OFF”)
and the blower speed selector to the
desired blower speed position. Setting the
blower speed selector to a higher blower
speed position increases cooling efficiency.
You can switch the air intake selector to
either “FRESH AIR” or “RECIRCULATED
AIR” as you desire. Choosing “RECIRCULATED AIR” increases cooling efficiency.
Quick cooling (using recirculated air)
The control settings are the same as for
normal cooling except you select “RECIRCULATED AIR” and the highest blower
speed.
NOTE:
• If you select “RECIRCULATED AIR” for
an extended period of time, the air in the
vehicle can become contaminated.
Therefore, you should occasionally
select “FRESH AIR”.
• If your vehicle has been left in the sun
with the windows closed, it will cool
faster if you open the windows briefly
while you operate the air conditioning
system with the air intake selector at
“FRESH AIR” and the blower at high
speed.
Dehumidifying
Set the air flow selector to a desired air
flow selector position, the temperature
selector to the desired temperature position (other than “OFF”) and the blower
speed selector to the desired blower speed
position. Also select “FRESH AIR”.
NOTE:
Because the air conditioning system dehumidifies the air, turning it on will help keep
the windows clear.
Maintenance
If you do not use the air conditioning system for a long period, such as during winter, it may not give the best performance
when you start using it again. To help
maintain optimum performance and durability of your air conditioning system, it
needs to be run periodically. Operate the
air conditioning system at least once a
month for one minute with the engine
idling. This circulates the refrigerant and oil
and helps protect the internal components.
NOTE:
Your vehicle uses the air conditioning system refrigerant HFC-134a, commonly
called “R-134a”. R-134a replaced R-12
around 1993 for automotive applications.
Other refrigerants are available, including
recycled R-12, but only R-134a should be
used in your vehicle.
NOTICE
Using the wrong refrigerant may
damage your air conditioning system. Use R-134a only. Do not mix or
replace the R-134a with other refrigerants.
If your air conditioning system is equipped
with air filters, clean or replace them as
specified in the “Maintenance Schedule” in
the “INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE”
section. Have this job done by your
SUZUKI dealer as the lower glove box
must be lowered for this job.

Notes on MP3/WMA
What is MP3/WMA?
MP3 (MPEG1/2 Audio Layer-III) and WMA
(Windows MediaTM Audio) are the compression formats of digital audio. The
former is developed by MPEG (Motion Picture Experts Group), and the latter is
developed by Microsoft Corporation.
Using these compression formats, you can
record contents of about 10 music CDs on
a single CD media. (This figure refers to
data recorded on a 650 MB CD-R or CDRW at a fixed bit rate of 128 kbps and a
sampling frequency of 44.1 kHz.)
Points to remember when making MP3/
WMA files
Common
• High bit rate and high sampling frequency are recommended for high
quality sounds.
• Selecting VBR (Variable Bit Rate) is not
recommended. Selecting VBR may
cause display of incorrect playing time
and jumpiness of playback.
• Playback sound quality varies depending on the encoding environment. For
details, refer to the user manual of the
encoding software and the writing software in use.
MP3
• It is recommended to set the bit rate to
“128 kbps or more” and “fixed”.
WMA
• It is recommended to set the bit rate to
“64 kbps or more” and “fixed”.
• Do not set the copy protect attribute on
the WMA file to enable this unit to playback.
•
•
•
•
NOTICE
Never assign the “.mp3”, or “.wma”
file name extension to a file if it is not
in the MP3/WMA format file. Failure to
observe this may result in damage to
the speaker due to noise production.
Recording MP3/WMA files on a CD
media
• It is recommended not to write both
CD-DA files and MP3/WMA files on a
disc.
• If both CD-DA files and MP3/WMA files
are on the same disc, tracks may not
be played in the correct order or some
tracks may not be played at all.
• When storing both MP3 data and WMA
data on the same disc, sort and place
them in different folders.
•
•
Do not write files other than MP3/WMA
files and unnecessary folders on a disc.
MP3/WMA files should be named to
meet the standards and the file system
specifications as shown below.
The file extension “.mp3” or “.wma”
should be assigned to files based on
their format independently.
You may encounter a trouble in playing
MP3/WMA files or displaying information of MP3/WMA files depending on
the writing software or CD recorder in
use.
This unit does not have a play list function.
It is recommended to write discs in
Disc-at-Once mode even though Multisession mode is supported.

VEHICLE LOADING AND TOWING
Vehicle Loading
Your vehicle was designed for specific
weight capacities. The weight capacities of
your vehicle are indicated by the Gross
Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) and the
Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR, front
and rear). The GVWR and GAWR (front
and rear) are listed in the “SPECIFICATIONS” section.
GVWR – Maximum permissible overall
weight of the fully loaded vehicle (including
all the occupants, accessories and cargo
plus the trailer nose weight if towing a
trailer).
GAWR – (Front and Rear) Maximum permissible weight on an individual axle.
Actual weight of the loaded vehicle and
actual loads at the front and rear axles can
only be determined by weighing the vehicle. Compare these weights to the GVWR
and GAWR (front and rear). If the gross
vehicle weight or the load on either axle
exceeds these ratings, you must remove
enough weight to bring the load down to
the rated capacity.
WARNING
Never overload your vehicle. The
gross vehicle weight (sum of the
weights of the vehicle, all the occupants, accessories, cargo plus trailer
nose weight if towing a trailer) must
never exceed the Gross Vehicle
Weight Rating (GVWR). In addition,
never distribute a load so that the
weight on either the front or rear axle
exceeds the Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR).
Trailer Towing
Your SUZUKI was originally designed to
carry people and a normal amount of
cargo, not to tow a trailer. SUZUKI does
not recommend you use your vehicle to
tow a trailer. Towing a trailer can adversely
affect handling, durability, and fuel economy.
WARNING
Always distribute cargo evenly. To
avoid personal injury or damage to
your vehicle, always secure cargo to
prevent it from shifting if the vehicle
moves suddenly. Place heavier
objects on the floor and as far forward in the cargo area as possible.
Never pile cargo higher than the top
of the seat backs.

EXAMPLE
Open
52D084
80G064
It is important to keep the engine oil at the
correct level for proper lubrication of your
vehicle’s engine. Check the oil level with
the vehicle on a level surface. The oil level
indication may be inaccurate if the vehicle
is on a slope. The oil level should be
checked either before starting the engine
or at least 5 minutes after stopping the
engine.
The handle of the engine oil dipstick is colored yellow for easy identification.
Pull out the oil dipstick, wipe oil off with a
clean cloth, insert the dipstick all the way
into the engine, then remove it again. The
oil on the stick should be between the
upper and lower limits shown on the stick.
If the oil level indication is near the lower
limit, add enough oil to raise the level to the
upper limit.
Close
81A147
Remove the oil filler cap and pour oil slowly
through the filler hole to bring the oil level
to the upper limit on the dipstick. Be careful
not to overfill. Too much oil is almost as
bad as too little oil. After refilling, start the
engine and allow it to idle for about a
minute. Stop the engine, wait about 5 minutes and check the oil level again.
NOTICE
Failure to check the oil level regularly
could lead to serious engine trouble
due to insufficient oil.

3) Stop the engine and wait about 5 minutes. Check the oil level again and add
oil if necessary. Check for leaks again.
NOTICE
• When replacing the oil filter, it is
recommended that you use a genuine SUZUKI replacement filter. If
you use an aftermarket filter, make
sure it is of equivalent quality and
follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
• Oil leaks from around the oil filter
or drain plug indicate incorrect
installation or gasket damage. If
you find any leaks or are not sure
that the filter has been properly
tightened,
have
the
vehicle
inspected by your SUZUKI dealer.
Engine Coolant
Selection of Coolant
To maintain optimum performance and
durability of your engine, use SUZUKI
Genuine Coolant or equivalent.
This type of coolant is best for your cooling
system as it:
• Helps maintain proper engine temperature.
• Gives proper protection against freezing
and boiling.
• Gives proper protection against corrosion and rust.
Failure to use the proper coolant can damage your cooling system. Your authorized
SUZUKI dealer can help you select the
proper coolant.
NOTICE
To avoid damaging your cooling system:
• Always use a high quality ethylene
glycol base non-silicate type coolant diluted with distilled water at
the correct mixture concentration.
• Make sure that the proper mix is 50/
50 coolant to distilled water and in
no case higher than 70/30. Concentrations greater than 70/30 coolant
to distilled water will cause overheating conditions.
• Do not use straight coolant nor
plain water.
• Do not add extra inhibitors or additives. They may not be compatible
with your cooling system.
• Do not mix different types of base
coolants. Doing so may result in
accelerated seal wear and/or the
possibility of severe overheating
and extensive engine/automatic
transaxle damage.

Coolant Level Check
Coolant Replacement
Check the coolant level at the reservoir
tank, not at the radiator. With the engine
cool, the coolant level should be between
the “FULL” and “LOW” marks.
Since special procedures are required, we
recommend you take your vehicle to your
SUZUKI dealer for coolant replacement.
Adding Coolant
WARNING
Engine coolant is harmful or fatal if
swallowed or inhaled. Do not drink
antifreeze or coolant solution. If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Immediately contact a poison control
center or a physician. Avoid inhaling
mist or hot vapors; if inhaled, remove
to fresh air. If coolant gets in eyes,
flush eyes with water and seek medical attention. Wash thoroughly after
handling. Solution can be poisonous
to animals. Keep out of the reach of
children and animals.
NOTICE
• The mixture you use should contain 50% concentration of antifreeze.
• If the lowest ambient temperature
in your area is expected to be –35°C
(–31°F) or below, use higher concentrations up to 60% following the
instructions on the antifreeze container.

aluminum foil or wire to replace a
blown fuse. If you replace a fuse and
the new one blows in a short period
of time, you may have a major electrical problem. Have your vehicle
inspected immediately by your
SUZUKI dealer.
NOTICE
The oils from your skin may cause a
halogen bulb to overheat and burst
when the lights are on. Grasp a new

Windshield Washer Fluid
Air Conditioning System
EXAMPLE
If you do not use the air conditioning system for a long period, such as during winter, it may not give the best performance
when you start using it again. To help
maintain optimum performance and durability of your air conditioning system, it
needs to be run periodically. Operate the
air conditioning system at least once a
month for one minute with the engine
idling. This circulates the refrigerant and oil
and helps protect the internal components.
80JM078
Check that there is washer fluid in the tank.
Refill it if necessary. Use a good quality
windshield washer fluid, diluted with water
as necessary.
WARNING
Do not use “anti-freeze” solution in
the windshield washer reservoir. This
can severely impair visibility when
sprayed on the windshield, and also
damage your vehicle’s paint.
NOTICE
Damage may result if the washer
motor is operated with no fluid in the
washer tank.

60MK0-14E
EMERGENCY SERVICE
If the Engine Overheats
The engine could overheat temporarily
under severe driving conditions. If the
engine coolant temperature gauge indicates overheating during driving:
1) Turn off the air conditioner, if equipped.
2) Take the vehicle to a safe place and
park.
3) Let the engine run at the normal idle
speed for a few minutes until the indicator is within the normal, acceptable
temperature range between “H” and
“C”.
WARNING
If you see or hear escaping steam,
stop the vehicle in a safe place and
immediately turn off the engine to let
it cool. Do not open the hood when
steam is present. When the steam
can no longer be seen or heard, open
the hood to see if the coolant is still
boiling. If it is, you must wait until it
stops boiling before you proceed.
If the temperature indication does not
come down to within the normal, acceptable range:
1) Turn off the engine and check that the
water pump belt and pulleys are not
damaged or slipping. If any abnormality
is found, correct it.
2) Check the coolant level in the reservoir.
If it is found to be lower than the “LOW”
line, look for leaks at the radiator, water
pump, and radiator and heater hoses. If
you locate any leaks that may have
caused the overheating, do not run the
engine until these problems have been
corrected.
3) If you do not find a leak, carefully add
coolant to the reservoir and then the
radiator, if necessary. (Refer to “Engine
Coolant” in the “INSPECTION AND
MAINTENANCE” section.)
NOTE:
If your engine overheats and you are
unsure what to do, contact your SUZUKI
dealer.
79J007
WARNING
• It is hazardous to remove the radiator cap (or degassing tank cap for a
diesel engine) when the water temperature is high, because scalding
fluid and steam may be blown out

APPEARANCE CARE
Corrosion Prevention
It is important to take good care of your
vehicle to protect it from corrosion. Listed
below are instructions for how to maintain
your vehicle to prevent corrosion. Please
read and follow these instructions carefully.
Important Information About Corrosion
Common causes of corrosion
1) Accumulation of road salt, dirt, moisture, or chemicals in hard-to-reach
areas of the vehicle underbody or
frame.
2) Chipping, scratches and any damage to
treated or painted metal surfaces
resulting from minor accidents or abrasion by stones and gravel.
Environmental conditions which accelerate corrosion
1) Road salt, dust control chemicals, sea
air or industrial pollution will all accelerate the corrosion of metal.
2) High humidity will increase the rate of
corrosion particularly when the temperature range is just above the freezing
point.
3) Moisture in certain areas of a vehicle
for an extended period of time may promote corrosion even though other body
sections may be completely dry.
4) High temperatures will cause an accelerated rate of corrosion to parts of the
vehicle which are not well ventilated to
permit quick drying.
This information illustrates the necessity of
keeping your vehicle (particularly the
underbody) as clean and dry as possible. It
is equally important to repair any damage
to the paint or protective coatings as soon
as possible.
How to Help Prevent Corrosion
Wash your vehicle frequently
The best way to preserve the finish on your
vehicle and to help avoid corrosion is to
keep it clean with frequent washing.
Wash your vehicle at least once during the
winter and once immediately after the winter. Keep your vehicle, particularly the
underside, as clean and dry as possible.
If you frequently drive on salted roads, your
vehicle should be washed at least once a
month during the winter. If you live near the
ocean, your vehicle should be washed at
least once a month throughout the year.
For washing instructions, refer to the “Vehicle Cleaning” section.
Remove foreign material deposits
Foreign material such as salts, chemicals,
road oil or tar, tree sap, bird droppings and
industrial fall-out may damage the finish of
your vehicle if it is left on painted surfaces.
Remove these types of deposits as quickly
as possible. If these deposits are difficult to
wash off, an additional cleaner may be
required. Be sure that any cleaner you use
is not harmful to painted surfaces and is
specifically intended for your purposes.
Follow the manufacturer’s directions when
using these special cleaners.
Repair finish damage
Carefully examine your vehicle for damage
to the painted surfaces. Should you find
any chips or scratches in the paint, touch
them up immediately to prevent corrosion
from starting. If the chips or scratches have
gone through to the bare metal, have a
qualified body shop make the repair.
Keep passenger and luggage compartments clean
Moisture, dirt or mud can accumulate
under the floor mats and may cause corrosion. Occasionally, check under these
mats to ensure that this area is clean and
dry. More frequent checks are necessary if
the vehicle is used off road or in wet
weather.
Certain cargos such as chemicals, fertilizers, cleaners, salts, etc. are extremely corrosive by nature. These products should
be transported in sealed containers. If a
spill or leak does occur, clean and dry the
area immediately.
9-1
60MK0-14E
APPEARANCE CARE
Store your vehicle in a dry, well-ventilated area
Do not park your vehicle in a damp, poorly
ventilated area. If you often wash your
vehicle in the garage or if you frequently
drive it in when wet, your garage may be
damp. The high humidity in the garage
may cause or accelerate corrosion. A wet
vehicle may corrode even in a heated
garage if the ventilation is poor.
Vehicle Cleaning
Cleaning the Interior
Vinyl upholstery
Prepare a solution of soap or mild detergent mixed with warm water. Apply the
solution to the vinyl with a sponge or soft
cloth and let it soak for a few minutes to
loosen dirt.
Rub the surface with a clean, damp cloth to
remove dirt and the soap solution. If some
dirt still remains on the surface, repeat this
procedure.
WARNING
Do not apply additional undercoating
or rust preventive coating on or
around exhaust system components
such as the catalytic converter,
exhaust pipes, etc. A fire could be
started if the undercoating substance
becomes overheated.
76G044S
WARNING
When cleaning the interior or exterior
of the vehicle, NEVER USE flammable
solvents such as lacquer thinners,
gasoline, benzene or cleaning materials such as bleaches or strong
household detergents. The materials
could cause personal injury or damage to the vehicle.
Fabric upholstery
Remove loose dirt with a vacuum cleaner.
Using a mild soap solution, rub stained
areas with a clean damp cloth. To remove
soap, rub the areas again with a cloth
dampened with water. Repeat this until the
stain is removed, or use a commercial fabric cleaner for tougher stains. If you use a
fabric cleaner, carefully follow the manufacturer’s instructions and precautions.
9-2
60MK0-14E
APPEARANCE CARE
Seat belts
Clean seat belts with a mild soap and
water. Do not use bleach or dye on the
belts. They may weaken the fabric in the
belts.
Vinyl floor mats
Ordinary dirt can be removed from vinyl
with water or mild soap. Use a brush to
help loosen dirt. After the dirt is loosened,
rinse the mat thoroughly with water and
dry it in the shade.
Carpets
Remove dirt and soil as much as possible
with a vacuum cleaner. Using a mild soap
solution, rub stained areas with a clean
damp cloth. To remove soap, rub the areas
again with a cloth dampened with water.
Repeat this until the stain is removed, or
use a commercial carpet cleaner for
tougher stains. If you use a carpet cleaner,
carefully follow the manufacturer’s instructions and precautions.
Caring for Aluminum Wheels
NOTE:
• Do not use an acidic or alkaline detergent to wash aluminum wheels. These
types of detergent will cause permanent
spots, discoloration and cracks on finished surfaces.

APPEARANCE CARE
Washing
When washing the vehicle, park it where
direct sunlight does not fall on it and follow
the instructions below:
1) Flush the underside of body and wheel
housings with pressurized water to
remove mud and debris. Use plenty of
water.
NOTICE
60B212S
WARNING
• Never attempt to wash and wax
your vehicle with the engine running.
• When cleaning the underside of the
body and fender, where there may
be sharp-edged parts, you should
wear gloves and a long-sleeved
shirt to protect your hands and
arms from being cut.
• After washing your vehicle, carefully test the brakes before driving
to make sure they have maintained
their normal effectiveness.
When washing the vehicle:
• Avoid directing steam or hot water
of more than 80°C (176°F) on plastic parts.
• To avoid damaging engine components, do not use pressurized
water in the engine compartment.
2) Rinse the body to loosen the dirt.
Remove dirt and mud from the body
exterior with running water. You may
use a soft sponge or brush. Do not use
hard materials which can scratch the
paint or plastic. Remember that the
headlight covers or lenses are made of
plastic in many cases.
NOTICE
To avoid damage to the paint or plastic surface, do not wipe the dirt off
without ample water. Be sure to follow above procedure.
3) Wash the entire exterior with a mild
detergent or car wash soap using a
sponge or soft cloth. The sponge or
cloth should be frequently soaked in the
soap solution.
NOTICE
When using a commercial car wash
product, observe the cautions specified by the manufacturer. Never use
strong household detergents or
soaps.
4) Once the dirt has been completely
removed, rinse off the detergent with
running water.
5) After rinsing, wipe off the vehicle body
with a wet chamois or cloth and allow it
to dry in the shade.
6) Check carefully for damage to painted
surfaces. If there is any damage,
“touch-up” the damage following the
procedure below:
1. Clean all damaged spots and allow
them to dry.
9-4

APPEARANCE CARE
2. Stir the paint and “touch-up” the
damaged spots lightly using a small
brush.
3. Allow the paint to dry completely.
Waxing
NOTICE
If you use an automatic car wash,
make sure that your vehicle’s body
parts, such as spoilers, cannot be
damaged. If you are in doubt, consult
the car wash operator for advice.
60B211S
After washing the vehicle, waxing and polishing are recommended to further protect
and beautify the paint.
• Only use waxes and polishes of good
quality.
• When using waxes and polishes,
observe the precautions specified by the
manufacturers.
