At what frequency should the air conditioning be serviced. My Vitara is coming up for three years, and I have the impression the a/c is not as effective as it used to be.

Hi John I don't think that there is a hard and fast rule on servicing times. A simple test is to get a thermometer and stick in the air vent. If the air con is ok, it should show approximately  4 to 7 degrees centigrade. If it is too much is higher  then it will need to be checked . Just getting it regassed isn't good enough. It would need to be checked for leaks, compressor function etc.   Graham

Thanks Graham. I believe I read somewhere that you have changed dealer from JJ. C.H. I booked a 3 year serviice with them and they quoted £250. However I negotiated and have been offered a service at £189. Take care. John

I guess it is normal for spots of water to drip on garage floor when the air conditioning has been on max output ?

Yes totally normal and the more humidity that is in the air, the more it seems to drip.... and my god it's dripping lately in this heat

Just a note that the Vitara uses the new gas which is much more expensive, don’t get it regassed at independent as they might use wrong gas, I’m guessing it will cost about£200 for a Regass as I had to pay that for my Audi. I was expecting £79 but informed that if the caps are silver rather than black it’s a new gas.

I paid £95 at Suzuki; for the new gas. Was told that future cost would be a lot more, but they made a concession for me.
