2005 XL-7: My yellow Service Engine without..trip coming up

Customer Question

My yellow "Service Engine Soon " light just came on. The car is a 2005 XL-7 Grand Vitara with 116,909 miles. Car still seems to run fine.

Can I continue to drive the car without causing damage, since I have a trip coming up

the service light is a reccommendation that the car would benefit from having the work carried out, you can contine to drive the car and it should be fine providing you don't leave it more than 1500 -2000miles
