Do not have owners manual. Should I get the all wheel drive serviced on the 2007 Suzuki XL-7? Light came on with message to have service done on AWD.

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Linda, Due to mileage you may be in need of a rear differential fluid replacement, and component inspection. You may be able to find a mileage service guide for your vehicle online, or visit your local dealership for a printout of manufacturers recommended maintenance schedules.

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Linda, There are many lights that can come on the dash of your car. Maintenance Service Soon = it needs an oil change Check Engine = Something happened to trigger a code in the engines on-board computer and needs attention. I recommend you bring your Suzuki to a professional mechanic and have them look to see what light is on, and what needs to be done to keep your car safe & reliable.

Barb Petrey, President - DBK Enterprises Inc at Jiffy Lube Yes. You can get an owners manual at the library or on-line and follow their recommendations.

Gelina Aquilina, Service Advisor / Mechanic at I would definitely look into it and see what it needs. A lot of shops can plug in with a scan tool for free to see why maintenance lights are on.

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive If the service 4wd light is on, the vehicle's computer is detecting a problem within the 4wd system. The 4wd system needs to be diagnosed and repaired as necessary.

Maryann Croce, Owner at Croce’s Transmission Specialists Linda, On your 2007 Suzuki XL. The AWD service light on means the computer detected a code or codes. I recommend getting your vehicle scanned by a shop that can report and describe their findings. They should also check the fluid. AWD issues can range from minor to major. Addressing minor issues sooner may help you avoid a major repair. Good luck.
