Suzuki S-Cross 2014: Should I do a major service?

Answered by CarsGuide 21 Mar 2020

Servicing is based on time as well as kilometres, Ingrid. Fluids and rubber components are affected by the passing years, not just the passing kilometres, so if a major service is due, then the best advice is to have it carried out.

If you want to reduce your servicing costs, the best advice might be to abandon the capped-price deal (presumably at a Suzuki dealership) and find a good, local, independent workshop that is qualified to do log book services. You might find even a major service at such a workshop will be no more expensive than a minor one at a dealership. Just because you have a capped-price servicing contract doesn’t mean you have to use that service outlet.

What cars are easy to get in and out of?

Answered by CarsGuide 19 May 2017

It’s a common problem for us as we get older, but there are no sedans or hatches that have the sort of higher driving seat that you want. The best option would be a small SUV, such as a Holden Trax, Toyota C-HR, Ford Kuga, or Suzuki S-Cross.

Best SUV under $25k?

Answered by CarsGuide 3 Feb 2017

The Trax is good value for money and stacks up well against all comers in the class. The 1.4 turbo is the best engine, and it has a conventional auto instead of a CVT that most of its rivals have. Others to look at are the Suzuki S-Cross, Ford Kuga, Nissan Qashqai, Mazda CX-5 and Subaru XV.

S-Cross 4x4 suitable for retired driver?

Answered by CarsGuide 28 Jun 2016

The S-Cross is not the best compact SUV I have driven but for short-haul work it will be fine and you should get a good deal if you can still buy a 2015 model so far into 2016.

S-Cross shudders at low speed

Answered by CarsGuide 23 Nov 2015

Using the Sport mode will give much perkier response. Fuel consumption will increase a little but that's the price of offsetting your current frustration.

CX-3 too pricey?

Answered by CarsGuide 6 Jul 2015

The starting price of the CX-3 is cheaper than its rivals at $19,990, so it should not be as expensive as you think. Of your other three, the S-Cross is boring but the only one I would remotely recommend.
