Do you still drive a Suzuki vehicle? Then your Suzuki warranty is almost definitely expired. Why? Because as of August 2019, there are only a few months left of the powertrain warranty on any Suzuki vehicle in the U.S. that has less than 100,000 miles on it. Also, the original bumper-to-bumper Suzuki warranty expired years ago. In case you weren’t aware, the last Suzuki model year in the U.S. was 2012 and the powertrain warranty was 7 years or 100,000 miles. 

What does this mean to you? Well, if you have not yet replaced your expired (or expiring) warranty with an extended Suzuki warranty, you should probably consider doing so. No matter how reliable your Suzuki has been, the older it gets and the more miles it has, the more likely it will break down and need repairs! If you do not have an extended vehicle warranty or vehicle protection plan in place once your original Suzuki warranty has expired, you have to pay for all repair costs. 

The Average Cost of Suzuki Repairs

Many drivers turn to a Suzuki warranty because the annual average repair costs for a Suzuki are around $300 – $500, with the high end of the average single repair being over $3,000! Look at two of the most commonly reported Suzuki problems and repairs and their associated costs:

  1. Timing Chain Problems: Multiple models and model years 
    1. Average Cost to Fix: $1,500
    2. Average Mileage: 76,000
  2. Engine Problems: Multiple models and model years 
    1. Average Cost to Fix: $3,000 – $3,500
    2. Average Mileage: 80,000 – 110,00

These two problems are widespread across models and model years, but each Suzuki model has specific problems that are unique to them as well. These include repairs like water pump replacement, alternator replacement, and head gasket replacement – all of which cost $500 or more to repair. This is why a Suzuki warranty can come in handy! Go ahead and use Google to search for the most common repairs and repair costs for your Suzuki and see how much money you might have to spend on repairs in the future.
