Suzuki Samurai/Sidekick/Tracker 1986-1998 Repair Guide

General Recommendations


Your vehicle was primarily designed to carry passengers and cargo. It is important to remember that towing a trailer will place additional loads on your vehicles engine, drivetrain, steering, braking and other systems. However, if you decide to tow a trailer, using the prior equipment is a must.

The vehicles manufactured by Suzuki are only designed to tow light weight trailers of Class 1 designation. Towing any trailer above this classification may lead to vehicle damage and/or decreased vehicle performance, such as handling, acceleration, and especially braking.

Local laws may require specific equipment such as trailer brakes or fender mounted mirrors. Check your local laws.
