EW GL Automatic

Does it have timing belt or chain?

Hi Diep T, I’m not a mechanic so don’t feel qualified to answer your question, though no doubt the cars have some sort of timing mechanism. Maybe ask a mechanic or a Suzuki dealer?


Hi Diep, I contacted the service department from Suzuki (Blood Suzuki in Geelong) where I purchased the vehicle and they said..... it has a chain and indicated it didn’t need to be serviced. I hope it helps answer your question. I a not a mechanic and don’t know the complete in’s and outs of the engine.



I have recently bought a 2019 Suzuki Baleno, GL, auto. It is going for it's 1,000 km service on Monday. I had to have sensors cleaned in the engine/transmission within 2 days of buying, it is extremely hard to get into reverse from park grinding & jerking badly as it goes into reverse, it does this 3-5 times before it will go into reverse smoothly, it goes up & down the gears while maintaining constant speed like it doesn't know what gear it wants to be in. the Speedo is out by 5 k's. The brakes rub badly when slowing up to come to a stop & when slowly creeping into a park etc. I'm extremely disappointed with this car & feel I should ask for a full refund. Should the dealer refund my money? ( I paid in full, no finance)

Anyone have a GL with manual trans? Just curious how it performs at hwy speeds ie how many rpm at 100kph. Thanks

Can’t connect iPhone using USB port. Sometimes it works straight away, most often it doesn’t even register at all, so cant even charge my phone whilst driving. I mentioned it at the last service and they said they updated the system but it hasn’t really helped. Just don’t understand why sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. Bizarre. Anyone else had this problem?

Contact your Suzuki dealer, they can fix it if it’s still under warranty

How do i fix front driver's seat -started to creak when I move in it. Seat back noise is near air bag. Was fine until car came back from its second service. Very annoying spoiling a great car. Is this a warranty issue as car only just over 2 years old? Baleno 1 litre sz4 boosterjet. 2017 model UK.
