  • Do check your Owners Handbook for your car’s maximum nose weight when working out “what can I tow"?
  • Do check your Owners Handbook for details on how to adjust your tyre pressures when carrying a full load.
  • Do remember that headlamp beam converters (contained within our European Roadside Assistance Pack) are necessary if you are driving in a left-hand drive country.
  • Do carry a Suzuki Genuine Accessory spare bulb kit when driving in the UK or abroad.
  • Do check the latest driving regulations for each country you’re visiting in case you need a GB sticker, warning triangles and hi-viz waistcoats.
