UPDATED: 02/05/2013THE latest car-maker to join Australia’s capped price servicing movement is Suzuki, which has introduced a five-year scheme on all new car purchases from May 1.

Exceptions include diesel-powered Grand Vitara SUVs and cars purchased in Queensland and northern New South Wales, where a separate distributor handles Suzuki sales.

Scheduled servicing for the Alto and Swift light car is capped at $199, with the 24 month/40,000km and 48 month/80,000km intervals at $289.

The cost of maintaining larger models including the SX4 small car, Kizashi mid-size sedan and APV van are capped at $249, with the 24 month/40,000km and 48 month/80,000km intervals costing $295.

For the Jimny and petrol Grand Vitara the cost is $269, with the 24 month/40,000km and 48 month/80,000km intervals at $299.

The scheme includes an extended warranty bonus, which ups the coverage from three to five years.

Suzuki Australia communications manager Andrew Ellis told GoAuto the company is still working on a capped price servicing plan for the diesel Grand Vitara, but it will affect few customers due to the small numbers sold.

He said Suzuki Australia is in talks with Suzuki Queensland to roll the servicing scheme out in the sunshine state.

For now, Suzuki Queensland will continue with longer 12 month/15,000km servicing intervals.

Capped price servicing is now offered by several car-makers in Australia, including Toyota, Holden, Hyunda, Ford, Kia, Volkswagen, Mitsubishi, Renault, Peugeot, Opel and Citroen.

Volkswagen has just extended its recently introduced capped price service offering to commercial vehicles.
