I am getting info conflicts so I thought I would ask the question & settle this once and for all ...

What engine oil spec/grade do I use for the Vitara S ?

And has anyone had the need to top up before their first service ?

Cheers in advance for any response

I've read various bits of info on the Internet lately saying that turbo gdi engines can be prone to to something called low speed pre ignition (lspi) fingers and toes crossed Laughing that the k14c doesn't have this problem but would it make sense to use an oil that is designed to prevent lspi ?

Not sure about ecstar oil....most suzuki main dealers in the uk seem to use motul oil now, supposed to be very good oil but im not convinced.
Just done a half year oil change myself as I do lots of short journeys.
Used castrol edge 5w30M engine sounds quieter already 🙂

Until recently Ecstar was not easily available in the UK, as Yorkshire Pud says Suzuki UK are now promoting Motul but having used Motul in motorcycles in the past and finding it turned black very quickly I will also be sticking to Castrol over Motul

If I use the oil finder app on the site it just gives 5w-30 M. I take it is the same oil for the K 10 C Boosterjet?

I've been using Motul 8100 ECO-NERGY 5W-30 since last 3 annual maintenance (15000 - 30000 - 45000 km ) and very happy for the performance. ( 1.4 S Vitara )

ACEA A5/B5 and API SL/CF specs are enough for Vitara K14C Engine.
