I'm pretty sure they'd both be 5W-30....don't think Suzuki has gone to 20-weight yet.

In your climate, 10W-30 would probably be perfectly fine.

You don't have an owners manual? Or you can go to the dealership and ask for a photo-copy of the technical service manual that all dealerships have that shows the weight recommendations versus ambient temperature.

The 2.0L is 5W30.

I just traded in my 2000 Vitara last month. Engine was still running great, the body on the other hand......
