FUEL RECOMMENDATION
Fuel Recommendation
Petrol Engine
You must use unleaded petrol with an
octane number (RON) of 91 or higher.
Petrol/Ethanol blends
Blends of unleaded petrol 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 10% ethanol. Make sure this petrol-ethanol blend
has octane ratings no lower than those
recommended for petrol.
Petrol/Methanol blends
Blends of unleaded petrol and methanol
(wood alcohol) are also commercially available in some areas. DO NOT USE fuels
containing more than 5% methanol under
any circumstances. Fuel system damage
or vehicle performance problems resulting
from the use of such fuels are not the
responsibility of MARUTI SUZUKI and may
not be covered under the New Vehicle
Warranty.
Fuels containing 5% or less methanol may
be suitable for use in your vehicle if they
contain cosolvents and corrosion inhibitors.
1-1
76MH1-74E
NOTE:
If you are not satisfied with the driveability
or fuel economy of your vehicle when you
are using a petrol/alcohol blend, you
should switch back to unleaded petrol containing no alcohol.
NOTICE
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.
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.
Diesel Engine
The diesel fuel should be with Cetane
Number (CN) higher than 51 and sulfur
content less than 350 ppm (parts per million). MARUTI SUZUKI recommends to
use the diesel fuel conformable to EN590.
Do not use marine diesel fuel, heating oils
and so forth.

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 MARUTI SUZUKI dealer. The
vehicle must be programmed with the correct identification code for the spare keys. A

• If you lose your immobilizer ignition key,
see your MARUTI 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 vehicle, or the engine may not be started
because they may interfere with your
vehicle’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.
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
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.

Security System (if equipped)
The security system is armed in about 5
seconds after you lock all doors (including
the tailgate) by using the keyless entry system transmitter.
Once the system is armed, any attempt to
open a door by using any other means (*)
than the keyless entry system transmitter,
or open the engine hood, will cause the
alarm to be triggered.
* These means include the following:
– The key
– The lock knob on a door
– The central door locking switch
Also, in case that you have set the shock
sensor to enabled state and set sensitivity
of the pre-warning function and full blast
warning function to a level other than 0, the
alarm will be triggered if any attempt to
tamper with the vehicle. The shock sensor
can be selected enabled or disabled state,
and sensitivity of each warning can be
adjusted as desired. To set the shock sensor, ask your MARUTI SUZUKI dealer or
use the setting mode of the information
display.
76MH1-74E
NOTE:
• The default setting of the shock sensor
is in the disabled state. Set to the
enabled state and adjust sensitivity of
each warning according to your preference. For details on how to use the information display, refer to “Information
Display” in this section.
• Your dealer may have already set the
shock sensor of the vehicle to the
enabled state before you purchase it.
Consult your dealer for further information.
NOTE:
• The security system generates alarms
when any of the predetermined conditions is met. However, the system does
not have any function of blocking unauthorized entry into the vehicle.
• Always use the keyless entry system
transmitter to unlock the doors when the
security system has been armed. Using
a key instead will trigger the alarm.
• If a person who does not know the security system is going to drive the 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 security system is armed,
you should still be careful to guard
against theft. Do not leave money or
things of value in the vehicle.
How to arm the security system

alarm will be triggered if any person
inside opens the door or engine hood, or
swings the vehicle (if the shock sensor is
in the enabled state).
• The security system is not armed when
all doors are locked using the key from
outside, or using the door lock knobs or
the central door locking switch from
inside.
• If any door 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. When the doors
are locked, the security system will be
How to stop the alarm
Should the alarm be triggered accidentally,
unlock the doors using the keyless entry
system transmitter, or insert the key in the
ignition switch and turn it 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 security system
will be rearmed with a delay of about 5
seconds.
• If you disconnect the battery while the
security system is in the armed condition
or the alarm is actually in operation, the
alarm will be re-triggered when the battery is then reconnected.
• Even after the alarm has stopped at the
end of the predetermined operation time,
it will be triggered again if any of the
doors or engine hood is opened, or the
vehicle feels a shock (if the shock sensor is in the enabled state), without disarming the security system.
Checking whether the alarm has been
triggered during parking
If the alarm was triggered and you then
turn the ignition switch to “ON” position, the
security system indicator will blink rapidly
for about 8 seconds and a buzzer will beep
4 times during this period. If this happens,
check whether the vehicle has been broken into while you were away from it.
Enabling and disabling the security
system
The security system can be either enabled
or disabled.
When enabled
• If any of the doors are opened without
unlocking by the keyless entry system
transmitter, all turn signal lights start to
blink and the interior buzzer beeps intermittently. After 5 seconds, the siren will
sound for about 27.5 seconds. The security system indicator continues to blink
during this time.
• If the engine hood is opened, all turn signal lights blink, and the siren sounds for
about 27.5 seconds. The security system indicator continues to blink during
this time.
(If the shock sensor is in the enabled state)
• If the vehicle feels a shock, the siren
sounds for about 2 seconds (pre-warning). If the vehicle continues to feel a

• 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.
• For children, if the shoulder belt irritates the neck or face, move the
child closer to the center of the
vehicle.
(Continued)
WARNING
(Continued)
• 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.

All child restraint systems are designed to
be secured on vehicle seats by either seat
belts (lap belts or the lap portion of lapshoulder belts). Whenever possible, MARUTI 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.

EXAMPLE
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.
WARNING
If your vehicle is equipped with a
front passenger air bag, do not install
a rear-facing child restraint in the
front passenger’s seat. If the passenger’s air bag inflates, a child in a rearfacing child restraint could be killed
or seriously injured. The back of a
rear-facing child restraint would be
too close to the inflating air bag.
WARNING
If you install a child restraint system in
the rear seat, slide the front seat far
enough forward so that the child’s feet
do not touch the front seatback. This
will help avoid injury to the child in the
event of an accident.

Front air bags are designed to inflate in
severe frontal collisions when the ignition
switch is in the “ON” position.
Front air bags are not designed to inflate in
rear impacts, side impacts, rollovers or
minor frontal collisions, since they would
offer no protection in those types of accidents. Remember, since an air bag
deploys only one time during an accident,
seat belts are needed to restrain occupants from further movements during the
accident.
Therefore, an air bag is NOT a substitute
for seat belts. To maximize your protection,
ALWAYS WEAR YOUR SEAT BELTS. Be
aware that no system can prevent all possible injuries that may occur in an accident.

Do not install a rear-facing child
restraint in the front passenger’s
seat. If the passenger’s front air bag
inflates, a child in a rear-facing child
restraint could be killed or severely
injured. The back of a rear-facing
child restraint would be too close to
the inflating air bag.
Please refer to the “Seat Belts and Child

• In frontal collisions with a fixed wall that
does not move or deform in less than
about 25 km/h (15 mph)
80J107
• Collision angle is offset from the vehicle
angle (offset collision)
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 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. 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 “Front
Seat” section and the “Seat Belts and Child
Restraint Systems” section in this section
for details on proper seat and seat belt
adjustments.
65D610
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.

2-26
76MH1-74E
BEFORE DRIVING
Note that even though your vehicle may be
moderately damaged in a frontal collision,
the collision may not have been severe
enough to trigger the air bags to inflate. If
your vehicle sustains ANY front-end damage, have the air bag system inspected by
an authorized MARUTI 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, and for a certain
vehicle only, whether the driver’s seat belt
was in use.
Servicing the air bag system
If the air bags inflate, have the air bags and
related components replaced by an authorized MARUTI SUZUKI dealer as soon as
possible.
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
MARUTI SUZUKI dealer as soon as possible.
76MH1-74E
one who services your vehicle that it has
air bags.
Service on or around air bag components
or wiring must be performed only by an
authorized MARUTI 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 vehicle. 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.
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.
Special procedures are required for servicing or replacing an air bag. For that reason,
only an authorized MARUTI SUZUKI
dealer should be allowed to service or
replace your air bags. Please remind any38

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 fan 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.

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.
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 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
is subsequently driven at high speeds,
such as on an expressway, making it
appear that oil is excessively consumed
after high-speed driving.

with the gear in any other position,
the vehicle may move resulting in
an unexpected accident.
• Do not leave your vehicle unattended while the engine is running.
• When leaving the vehicle, stop the
engine and park the vehicle with a
gear engaged. If you need to leave
the vehicle with the engine running,
apply the parking brakes firmly,
and shift the gearshift lever to the
“N” position. Otherwise, the vehicle may move unexpectedly and
may cause an accident.
NOTICE
• On a slope, never hold the vehicle
at a stop using only the accelerator
pedal or the creeping function. If
you perform this operation for a
certain period of time, a warning
buzzer will sound, and in some
cases the engine will stall. This can
also cause excessive damage to
the clutch.
• If the gearshift lever is operated
more than necessary, the system
may not allow operation of the
gearshift lever for a certain period
of time, and the gear may not be
shifted appropriately. Therefore, do
not operate the gearshift lever if not
necessary.
Parking
Unlike an automatic transaxle, Auto Gear
Shift does not have a parking position. The
vehicle can be parked with the gearshift
lever in any position.
1) Apply the parking brake firmly.
2) While depressing the brake pedal, shift
the gearshift lever to the “R” position on
a downhill slope, and to the 1st position
in the drive (D) mode or the “M(1)” position in the manual (M) mode on an
uphill slope and confirm the gear position by checking the gear position indicator.
3) Stop the engine.
NOTE:
• After the engine is stopped, the gear in
the transaxle does not change even if
you shift the gearshift lever in any position. Always shift the gearshift lever
before stop the engine.
• Check the transaxle gear position by
looking at the gear position indicator,
then turn the ignition switch off to stop
the engine. Release the brake pedal
after a few seconds. The gearshift lever
will be locked in the position it was in
when the ignition switch was turned off.
WARNING
• If the gear is not engaged properly
and completely before the ignition
switch is turned off, the vehicle
may not be parked with the gear
engaged. Always confirm the gear
position by checking the gear position indicator when parking.
• On a downhill slope, the gear
should be put in reverse, and in 1st
gear on an uphill slope. Otherwise,
the vehicle may move, and cause
an unexpected accident. If the gear
is left in the “N” position, the vehicle cannot be parked with a gear
engaged.
Parking cancel
Depress the brake pedal, turn the ignition
switch to the “ON” position, and shift the
gearshift lever to the “N” position. The gear
will be disengaged.

Braking
EXAMPLE
and the stopping point, and slow down
gradually.
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.
Power-Assisted Brakes
60G165S
The distance needed to bring any vehicle
to a halt increases with the speed of the
vehicle. The braking distance needed, for
example, at 60 km/h (37 mph) will be
approximately 4 times greater than the
braking distance needed at 30 km/h (19
mph). Start to brake the vehicle when there
is plenty of distance between your vehicle
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.
74
3-15
76MH1-74E
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
76MH1-74E
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.
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 (6 mph).
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.
• In both of the above conditions,
ABS will still offer the advantage of
helping you maintain directional
control. However, remember that
ABS will not compensate for bad
road or weather conditions or poor
driver judgment. Use good judgment and do not drive faster than
conditions will safely allow.

WARNING
• If the ABS warning light (1) on the
instrument panel comes on and
stays on while driving, there may
be a problem with the ABS system.
Ask your MARUTI SUZUKI dealer to
inspect the ABS system immediately. If the ABS system becomes
inoperative, the brake system will
function as an ordinary brake system that has no ABS.

How the ABS Works
WARNING
(Continued)
• If the ABS warning light (1) and the
Brake system warning light (2) on
the instrument panel simultaneously stays on or comes on when
driving, both anti-lock function and
rear brake force control function
(proportioning valve function) of
the ABS system may have failed. If
so, the rear wheels may 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
MARUTI 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 after a
stop you may hear a momentary motor
noise as the system 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.
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.
78
4-1
76MH1-74E
DRIVING TIPS
76MH1-74E
Avoid “fast” starts
Fast starts away from lights or stop signs
will consume fuel unnecessarily and
shorten engine life. Start off slowly.
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).
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.
54G584S
WARNING
Keep a steady cruising speed
Keep as constant a speed as road and traffic conditions will permit.
Keep the air cleaner clean
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.
Improving Fuel Economy
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, do not allow the engine to idle
or apply full throttle until the engine has
reached operating temperature. Allow the
engine to warm up by driving.
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.
79
4-2
76MH1-74E
DRIVING TIPS
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.
Highway Driving
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.

D
+
76MH0A063
• 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
into a lower gear.
WARNING
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.
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.
Tire Chains (if equipped)
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
80
4-3
76MH1-74E
DRIVING TIPS
76MH1-74E
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
• 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.
2) If your vehicle remains stuck after a few
minutes of rocking, get another vehicle
to pull your vehicle out.
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.
NOTICE
Do not continue rocking the vehicle
for more than a few minutes. Prolonged rocking can cause engine
overheating or transaxle damage.
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.
54G638S
DRIVING ON WET ROADS
NOTICE
• When driving on wet roads, avoid
driving through large amount of
standing water on the road. Large
amount of water entering the
engine compartment may cause
damage to the engine and or electrical components.
• If stuck in deep water, do not start
till water level drops.
• Water is incompressible substance,
water inside engine is harmful to
the engine.
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 “INSPECTIONAND
MAINTENANCE”
• Di not use tires other than those
specified by MARUTI 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

WARNING
(Continued)
• 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.

72F-08-002
Starting
1) Adjust the driver’s seat for the proper
driving posture.
2) Adjust the rear view mirror so as to
obtain the best possible rear view.
3) Before moving off, look forward and
back to confirm safety.
4) Don’t start quickly, since it is dangerous
and wastes fuel.
General driving
1) Be sure to stop before the stop light and
stop sign. When moving into the intersection without any traffic lights or
signs, drive slowly to confirm safety.
2) Always follow other vehicles at a safe
distance in order to prevent a rear-end
collision, in case the vehicle ahead
make a sudden stop.
3) Turn ON the turn signal at least 30
meters before making a turn or changing the lane so as not to be hit from
behind.
4) Before entering a corner, decelerate to
a safe speed. Don’t apply brakes during
cornering, or a cornering skid may
occur.
5) When overtaking other vehicles, watch
out for the oncoming vehicle and carefully confirm the safety.
6) Don’t attempt zigzag driving which will
hinder your control over the vehicle and
cause an accident.

Braking
1) Use the parking brake when parking
your vehicle and shift the gear shift
lever into the first gear or reverse gear
position for the sake of safety.
2) Don’t use hand-braking unless unavoidable. It causes the vehicle to skid and a
rear-end collision occur. It is especially
dangerous when the tyres are worn, for
they allow a larger skid.
72F-08-012
72F-08-015
Use foot brake in three stages
1. Warn the vehicle behind you
2. Gradually apply the brake.
3. Bring the vehicle to a halt.
3) When driving on a downhill, try not to
apply the brake but use the engine
brake effectively. Overuse of the
foot-brake may result in total brake failure.
4) Avoid reckless high speed driving and
try to drive at a safe speed suitable for
the road conditions while maintaining a
constant speed.
5) The higher the speed, the narrower the
driver’s visual range becomes. In such
a state, it is difficult to anticipate any
hazard and the driver feels much
fatigued.
6) Never do sharp handling during high
speed driving. You will lose your control
over your vehicle.
7) When overtaking or changing the lane
while driving at a high speed, keep an
ample vehicle-to-vehicle distance.

starting a trip.
2) Take rest at certain intervals to prevent
an accident which may occur when you
are sleepy or tired.
when the windshield glass is dry or the
wiper blade and glass may get damaged.
Margin For Safety
It is important to allow yourself a margin for
safety during driving so that you can cope
with erroneous or unexpected driving of
other drivers. For that, observe the following.
• Drive at a safe speed.
• Maintain a sufficient distance between
your vehicle and the vehicle ahead.
• Don’t force yourself to overtake other
vehicles.
• Don’t make quick start, hard steering or
sudden stops.
• Allow an ample time in the driving
schedule.
• Observe traffic rules and regulations.

Conclusion
A perfect driver does not exist. The
endeavor of every motorist should be to
strive for perfection. Safety consciousness
not only ensures your safety and the safety
of other road users, it also helps reduce
the wear and tear on your vehicle, prolongs
its life, gives more mileage and ensures a
comfortable driving experience.
Follow the do’s and don’ts listed, and
driving will never be the same again.
72F-08-020
Night time driving
1) Drive more slowly at night than in the
daytime, for the visual range is
restricted at night.
2) Don’t overtake other vehicles at night.
Darkness bothers your sense of speed
and hinders your judgment on the vehicle-to-vehicle distance.
3) Don’t use the high headlight beam
unless its use is inevitable. Its dazzle
may blitz the driver of the oncoming
vehicle, thus causing an accident.
4) Always keep the window glasses clean.
Don’t operate the windshield wiper

System Operating Instructions
Natural ventilation
Select “VENTILATION” and “FRESH AIR”,
the temperature selector to the desired
temperature position, and the blower
speed selector to “OFF”. Fresh air will flow
through the vehicle during driving.
Forced ventilation
The control settings are the same as for

to the desired blower speed position. Setting the blower speed selector to a higher
blower speed position increases heating
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 heating (using recirculated air)
The control settings are the same as for
normal heating except you select “RECIRCULATED AIR”. If you use this heating
method for an extended period of time, the
air in the vehicle can become contaminated and the windows can become misty.
Therefore, use this method only for quick
heating and change to the normal heating
method as soon as possible.
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.
Head cooled/Feet warmed heating
Select “BI-LEVEL” and “FRESH AIR”, the
temperature selector to the desired temperature position, and the blower speed
selector to the desired blower speed position. Unless the temperature selector is in
the fully COLD position or fully HOT position, the air that comes out of the center
and side outlets will be cooler than the air
that comes out of the floor outlets.
Normal cooling
Set the air flow selector to “VENTILATION”, the temperature selector to the
desired temperature position and the
blower speed selector to the desired
blower speed position, and turn on the “A/
C” switch. Setting the blower speed selector to a higher blower speed position
increases cooling efficiency.
NOTE:
• To turn on the air conditioning system,
push in the “A/C” switch and set the
blower speed selector to a position other

Notes on MP3/WMA/AAC
What is MP3?
• MP3 (MPEG audio layer3) is an audio
compression format that has become the
standard format among PC users. Its
merit is that the original audio data is
compressed to approximately 1/10 and
high sound quality is maintained. This
means that it is possible to store the data
of approximately 10 music CDs on a single CD-R/RW disc, which in turn makes
it possible to play music for a long time
without having to change the disc.
What is WMA?
• An abbreviation of “Windows Media
Audio,” WMA is an audio compression
format developed by Microsoft.
• WMA files for which the DRM (Digital
Rights Management) function is ON cannot be played.
• Windows MediaTM and the Windows®
logo are trademarks or registered trademarks of Microsoft Corporation in the
United States and other countries.
What is AAC?
• An abbreviation of “Advanced Audio
Coding,” AAC is an audio compression
format used by MPEG2 and MPEG4.

Points to remember when making MP3/
WMA/AAC 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.
NOTICE
Never assign the “.mp3”, “.wma”, or
“.m4a” file name extension to a file if
it is not in the MP3/WMA/AAC format
file. Failure to observe this may result
in damage to the speaker due to
noise production.
Recording MP3/WMA/AAC files on a CD
media
• It is recommended not to write both CDDA files and MP3/WMA/AAC files on a
disc.
• If both CD-DA files and MP3/WMA/AAC
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/
AAC files and unnecessary folders on a
disc.
• MP3/WMA/AAC files should be named
to meet the standards and the file system specifications as shown below.
• The file extension “.mp3”, “.wma” or
“.m4a” should be assigned to files based
on their format independently.
• You may encounter a trouble in playing
MP3/WMA/AAC files or displaying information of MP3/WMA/AAC 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 Discat-Once mode even though Multi-session 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
Permissible maximum Axle Weight (PAW,
front and rear). The GVWR and PAW (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).
PAW – (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 PAW (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.
76MH1-74E
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 Permissible maximum
Axle Weight (PAW).
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.
Trailer Towing
Your MARUTI SUZUKI was originally
designed to carry people and a normal
amount of cargo, not to tow a trailer.MARUTI SUZUKI does not recommend you use
your vehicle to tow a trailer. Towing a trailer
can adversely affect handling, durability,
and fuel economy.
Towing Your Vehicle
Your vehicle may be towed behind another
vehicle (such as a motorhome), provided
your vehicle is 2 wheel drive (2WD) and
you use the proper towing method specified for your vehicle. The towing method
you must use depends on the specifications of your vehicle: whether it is a manual
transaxle vehicle or an Auto Gear Shift
vehicle.
Use the towing instruction table to select
the proper towing method for your vehicle,
and carefully follow the corresponding
instructions. Be sure to use proper towing
equipment designed for recreational towing and make sure that towing speed does
not exceed 90 km/h (55 mph).
WARNING
When you tow your vehicle, follow
the instructions below to avoid accidents and damage to your vehicle. In
addition, be sure to observe government and local requirements regarding vehicle lighting and trailer hitches
or tow bars.
WARNING
A safety chain should always be used
when you tow your vehicle.

NOTICE
After shifting the Auto Gear Shift
lever to the “N” position, always
check the gear position indicator in
the instrument cluster shows the “N”
position to make sure that the
transaxle is disengaged.
If the transaxle cannot be put in neutral, turn the key from the “LOCK” to
the “ON” position, and move the
Auto Gear Shift lever from “N” to “D”,
“M” or “R”, then back to “N” again.
Then turn the key from the “ON” to
the “LOCK” position.
These procedures may help put the
transaxle in neutral. If the transaxle
still cannot be put in neutral, you cannot tow the vehicle without using a
towing dolly.
NOTICE
The steering column is not strong
enough to withstand shocks transmitted from the front wheels during
towing. Always unlock the steering
wheel before towing.

WARNING
You should take extreme care when
working on your vehicle to prevent
accidental injury. Here are a few precautions that you should be especially careful to observe:
(Continued)
(Continued)
• To prevent damage or unintended
activation 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
MARUTI 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.
• Do not leave the engine running in
garages or other confined areas.
• When the engine is running, keep
hands, clothing, tools, and other
objects away from the fan and drive
belt. Even though the fan may not
be moving, it can automatically
turn on without warning.
• When it is necessary to do service
work with the engine running, make
sure that the parking brake is set
fully and the transaxle is in Neutral.
• Do not touch ignition wires or other
ignition system parts when starting the engine or when the engine
is running, or you could receive an
electric shock.
(Continued)
WARNING
(Continued)
• Be careful not to touch a hot
engine, exhaust manifold and
pipes, muffler, radiator and water
hoses.
• Do not allow smoking, sparks, or
flames around fuel or the battery.
Flammable fumes are present.
• Do not get under your vehicle if it is
supported only with the portable
jack provided in your vehicle.
• Be careful not to cause accidental
short circuits between the positive
and negative battery terminals.
• Keep used oil, coolant, and other
fluids away from children and pets.
Dispose of used fluids properly;
never pour them on the ground,
into sewers, etc.

• Gives proper protection against corrosion and rust.
Failure to use the proper coolant can damage your cooling system. Your authorized
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 (Diesel) and 30/70 (Petrol). Concentrations greater than this may cause
overheating conditions.
• Neither use 100% coolant nor 100%
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

WARNING
Always be sure to replace a blown
fuse with a fuse of the correct amperage. Never use a substitute such as
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 MARUTI SUZUKI dealer.
The oils from your skin may cause a
halogen bulb to overheat and burst
when the lights are on. Grasp a new
bulb with a clean cloth.
NOTICE
Frequent replacement of a bulb indicates the need for an inspection of
the electrical system. This should be
carried out by your MARUTI SUZUKI
dealer.

not give the best performance when you
start using it again. To help maintain optimum performance and durability of your air
conditioner, it needs to be run periodically.
Operate the air conditioner at least once a
month for one minute with the engine
idling. This circulates the refrigerant and oil
and helps protect the internal components.
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.

wheel rim.
EXAMPLE
74LHT0860
When installing the cover, make sure that it
is positioned so that it does not cover or
foul the air valve.
• Never attempt to jump start your
vehicle if the battery appears to be
frozen. Batteries in this condition
may explode or rupture if jump
starting is attempted.
• When making jump lead connections, be certain that your hands
and the jump leads remain clear
from pulleys, belts, or fans.
• Batteries
produce
flammable
hydrogen gas. Keep flames and
sparks away from the battery or an
explosion may occur. Never smoke
when working in the vicinity of the
battery.
• If the booster battery you use for
jump starting is installed in another
vehicle, make sure the two vehicles
are not touching each other.
• If your battery discharges repeatedly, for no apparent reason, have
your vehicle inspected by an
authorized MARUTI SUZUKI dealer.
• To avoid harm to yourself or damage to your vehicle or battery, follow the jump starting instructions
below precisely and in order.
If you are in doubt, call for qualified
road service.
NOTICE
Your vehicle should not be started by
pushing or towing. This starting
method could result in permanent
damage to the catalytic converter.
Use jump leads to start a vehicle with
a weak or flat battery.
When Jump Starting Your Vehicle,
Use the Following Procedure:
1) Use only a 12-volt battery to jump start
your vehicle. Position the good 12-volt
battery close to your vehicle so that the
jump leads will reach both batteries.
When using a battery installed on
another vehicle, DO NOT LET THE
VEHICLES TOUCH. Set the parking
brakes fully on both vehicles.
2) Turn off all vehicle accessories, except
those necessary for safety reasons (for
example, headlights or hazard lights).

4. Make the final connection to an
unpainted, heavy metal part (i.e.
engine mount bracket (3)) of the
engine of the vehicle with the flat
battery (1).
WARNING
Never connect the jump lead directly
to the negative (–) terminal of the discharged battery, or an explosion may
occur.
CAUTION
Connect the jump lead to the engine
mount bracket securely. If the jump
lead disconnects from the engine
mount bracket because of vibration
at the start of the engine, the jump
lead could be caught in the drive
belts.
4) If the booster battery you are using is
fitted to another vehicle, start the
engine of the vehicle with the booster
battery. Run the engine at moderate
speed.
5) Start the engine of the vehicle with the
flat battery.
6) Remove the jump leads in the exact
reverse order in which you connected
them.
Towing
If you need to have your vehicle towed,
contact a professional service. Your dealer
can provide you with detailed towing
instructions.
NOTICE
To help avoid damage to your vehicle
during towing, proper equipment and
towing procedures must be used.
2-Wheel Drive (2WD) Manual Transaxle or Auto Gear Shift
Manual transaxle vehicles or Auto Gear
Shift vehicles may be towed using either of
the following methods.
1) From the front, with the front wheels
lifted and the rear wheels on the
ground. Before towing, make sure that
the parking brake is released.
2) From the rear, with the rear wheels
lifted and the front wheels on the
ground, provided the steering and
drivetrain are in operational condition.
Before towing, make sure that transaxle
is in neutral, the steering wheel is
unlocked (the ignition key should be in
the “ACC” position), and the steering
wheel is secured with a clamping
device designed for towing service.
NOTICE
After shifting the Auto Gear Shift
lever to the “N” position, always
check the gear position indicator in
the instrument cluster shows the “N”
position to make sure that the
transaxle is disengaged.
If the transaxle cannot be put in neutral, turn the key from the “LOCK” to
the “ON” position, and move the
Auto Gear Shift lever from “N” to “D”,
“M” or “R”, then back to “N” again.
Then turn the key from the “ON” to
the “LOCK” position.
These procedures may help put the
transaxle in neutral. If the transaxle
still cannot be put in neutral, you cannot tow the vehicle without using a
towing dolly.
The steering column is not strong
enough to with stand shocks transmitted from the front wheels during
towing. Always unlock the steering
wheel before towing.

EMERGENCY SERVICE
If the Starter Does Not
Operate
1) Try turning the ignition switch to the
“START” position with the headlights
turned on to determine the battery condition. If the headlights go excessively
dim or go off, it usually means that
either the battery is flat or the battery
terminal contact is poor. Recharge the
battery or correct battery terminal contact as necessary.
2) If the headlights remain bright, check
the fuses. If the reason for failure of the
starter is not obvious, there may be a
major electrical problem. Have the vehicle inspected by your authorized MARUTI SUZUKI dealer.
If the Engine is Flooded
If the engine is flooded with petrol, it may
be hard to start. If this happens, press the
accelerator pedal all the way to the floor
and hold it there while cranking the engine.
• For petrol engine model, do not operate
the starter motor for more than 12 seconds.
• For diesel engine model, do not operate
the starter motor for more than 30 seconds.
76MH1-74E
If the Engine Overheats
The engine could overheat temporarily
under severe driving conditions. If the high
engine coolant temperature warning light
comes on as 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 high
engine coolant temperature warning
light goes off.
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.
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 MARUTI
SUZUKI dealer.
If the high engine coolant temperature
warning light does not go off:
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.

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
under pressure. The cap should
only be taken off when the coolant
temperature has lowered.
• To help prevent personal injury,
keep hands, tools and clothing
away from the engine cooling fan
and
air-conditioner
fan
(if
equipped). These electric fans can
automatically turn on without warning.

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.
is not harmful to painted surfaces and is
specifically intended for your purposes. Follow the manufacturer’s directions when
using these special cleaners.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.

Cleaning the Interior
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.
Vehicle Cleaning
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.
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.
76G044S
WARNING
When cleaning the interior or exterior
of the vehicle, NEVER USE flammable
solvents such as lacquer thinners,
petrol, benzene or cleaning materials
such as bleaches or strong household
detergents. The materials could cause
personal injury or damage to the vehicle.
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.
Instrument panel and console
Remove loose dirt with a vacuum cleaner.
Gently wipe dirt off with a tightly squeezed
damp clean cloth. Repeat this until the dirt
is removed.
NOTICE
Do not use chemical products that
contain silicon to wipe electrical
components such as the air conditioning system, audio, navigation
system, or other switches. These will
cause damage to the components.
Cleaning the Exterior
NOTICE
It is important that your vehicle be
kept clean and free from dirt. Failure
to keep your vehicle clean may result
in fading of the paint or corrosion to
various parts of the vehicle body.
