Should I leave my Suzuki Baleno running for a few minutes before switching off to save the turbo seizing?

Is it a good idea to allow a Suzuki Baleno 1.0 to tick over for a few minutes before switching off - to allow oil to circulate in the turbo - to save it seizing/wearing out prematurely? The manual, and Suzuki dealers, don't mention this.

Very much so. Not after normal ambling about, but after long ascents, quick cross country driving and when you stop for fuel on the motorway.

Punchy and efficient petrol engines especially the 1.0-litre Boosterjet, excellent value for money – even the top trim is well priced, more spacious and practical than the Suzuki Swift.
