    Default FAW V2 Owner's Review

    So I finally made my Father agree and bought this beauty.
    Now you guys are gonna get the first owner's review I guess
    I've driven it for almost 500kms now.
    First talking about the drive,its beautiful and wonderful.
    The acceleration is just freakin awesome.
    I asked a friend who has 2013 gli to have a little race with me just to check the acceleration and I was amazed when the gli couldnt even catch up close :')
    The ABS brake is quite responsive.
    Although there's a little play in the paddle(if play means you have to press the paddle more).Bit the ABS WAS QUITE RESPONSIVE
    The suspension was also wonderful.
    I just felt of it like my dad's corolla.So comfortable that I'm totally satisfied.
    In the interior there's ample seat for a person like me (6''1' tall) on the front seats and the people on the back can also easily be entertained.
    I didnt have a usb so I borrowed it from a friend for a bit
    Usb played well and the two speakers did the job for me although I like high bass but they're perfect for doing the job .
    The steering is very easy to handle.
    The only issue I had was that it took me almost a day to get used to the opposite positions of headlights and viper knob.
    The plastic of interior as some people said isn't really cheap but the color sometimes make it look so in high sunlight.
    The grip of the car is amazing,just like a JDM as I'be previosuly owned a JDM.
    Why did I buy it?
    I had to buy a car now and my considerations were cultus,wagon r,used vitz and passo.
    It was quite difficult to make a choice.
    Pros:
    The car is brand new unlike JDMs,it wont make me go to the workshop again and again,even if there's anything wrong,its the company's headache to solve the problem upto 50,000 kms.
    It has dual airbags as compared to cultus and wagon r.
    Power windows,power steering,ABS which are not there in cultus.
    The drive is very smooth.
    It is way more powerful as it is 1300cc and I could not get any other 1300 cc new car in this range.
    Cultus and wagon r didnt werwe totally waved out of my mind after V2.

    Cons:
    Uptill now no resale,but I am hapy that they have set up their plant in Karachi and they say they will be starting its local production in 2015 which means they are here to stay and make a name in the market.
    Spare parts although available all over Pakistan in 3S dealerships but not in open market uptill now.


    I was able to convince myself that these cons are nothing infront of the pros so I finally decided to take it.I'm loving the ride untill now as its beautifull,sexy and a good performer.I'm sharing the pictures .I'll sooon be getting its body kit made aswell.
    Anything else you guys wanna ask me,you can.

    Edited: 6th November 2015
    Ive used my V2 for almost a year now and I'm really satisfied with it.My brother has also bought a v2 after my experience in white color.
    He is also enjoying the ride.
    I would recommend anyone who has a budget of 1 million to go for this car.
    My brother got this Financed from JS bank.
    We're loving it

    The engine in PKDM Swift is not the same as the one used all over the world. Even Maruti suzuki uses the latest K-Series engine. PKDM swift uses the old LIANA engine.

    Iam thinking of financing car in range of 10 lacs ......I have to keep car for long duration
    Extensive searching i reached to conclution that there are only two options
    1. FAW V2
    2. Suzuki Wagon R
    As technical personal, i convinced myself that FAW V2 is far btter then then Wagon R as wagon r lack features and also i expect same build quality.....But the thing that bother me alot is that i use to vist many places and i started observing that i see alot of wagon r on roads which clearly shows that people are buying this but very rearly saw FAW ....What is the reason for this ??????

    FAW is a new entrant in passenger car business. their trucking business is booming but not necessarily their cars will be hot cakes too. suzuki is an established brand - even if they start selling 3wheeler rickshaws for a million rupees, that too will sell like hot cakes. FAW could be definitely better than Cultus, Wagon R in all aspects.but again. the practical aspects are that if you want even the most general of part like air filter, you will have to go to their 3s and pay whatever they will ask you - unlike the suzuki parts which are available at even paan shops (as we say in fun). also, people already have bad experiences with Mitsubishis, Nissans, Kia, Hyundai who came, marketed their vehicles, sold plenty of them and then disappeared for always leaving behind zero after sales, technical staff and spare part availability. reason is, i saw a Lancer parked at a mechanic who said its air filter box is broken and nowhere to find exact match in whole Karachi!

    so, if you are wanting a best package and prepared to be pareshan for spares and resale, then skip WagonR/ cultus and buy a V2!

    You haven't mentioned safety aspect here which is very important in my view. The degree of safety difference made by airbags is enormous. Google and read it online. Airbags are lifesavers

    I agree that WagonR/Cultus have easier spare availability and resale but that's the only advantage of that car. A proper analysis should cover all aspects. Don't forgot all Paksuzuki assembled car (other than wagonr) are obsolete and Pakistan is the only place where ravi,bolan,cultus,mehran are being assembled and dumped.

    absolutely agreeing to you bro!

    and the life saver part is important too but maybe not too much followed here in paki. almost none of drivers wear seat belts! even our corollas and citys are without airbags. that doesnt make them less safer. its more of an add-on. we see Mercedes/BMWs/Ferraris and what not on roads of West and Middle East and they have so high fatal road accident rates. practicality here in paki is for availability of parts. i own a Liana and believe me i get its parts from each and every body part shop just because its a paki car and by suzuki. although it is not as common as Mehran,Alto,Cultus.

    So my brother's V2 arrived and here are some of the observations after driving it around a bit:
    Pros:
    1. Good quality compared to local assembled stuff, last time I drove a new swift I was dismayed at the pathetic quality of everything in it, from the door handle ki karak to ac compressor going khirch when engaging every time and a lot more speaking of the pathetic quality.
    2. The drive is pretty good, can't ask for more in this segment
    3. Front seats are really comfortable, rear ones are just ok
    4. Features, loads of them. Specially the adjustable headlights is quite some fun :-)
    5. The headlights are pretty powerful and provide such a good and clear vision that I was left quite impressed.
    6. No low quality tires to replace like in most local cars, no security system to install, no fazol sound system to replace. Full package
    7. The fordable warning sign to put in the road in case the car is parked at a side was a surprise, the local assemblers do not even provide a decent toolkit
    8. Front and rear fog lights, good stuff. While driving inside the colony there was no need of the headlights given the visibility provided by them
    9. I liked the overall paint finish, time would tell if it fades like that of local cars specially the red color
    10. Nippy engine, expecting really good economy from it

    Cons:
    1. What I really really missed was an adjustable steering, with so many extra features in this car it would not have been asking for much right. The position of the steering it quite high, would have loved to have it much lower
    2. Only one key has remote entry option, the second one is a plain key. I might be wrong here, this is what I saw when the car came and I didn't bother verifying it
    3. The indicators being on the left wasn't much of a hassle for me, another ride in the house already is this way i.e. chevrolet

    Overall : Really good value for money, nothing else comes close by even adding several lacs more. Dual airbags, ABS + EBD and what not. If there is no eminent need to dispose of the vehicle in years to come, this is the best bang for the buck as far as new cars are considered.

    While buying car , you have to balance out the things.....Resale should not be everything but there should be peace of mind there
    I wana ask a question pretty simple to all who own this car
    Was this car worth it that you can take risk of 10 million which in my lifetime i can manage once only ........
    Honest opinion with some realistic analysis is requested .....
    Second you can see the production graph which clearly shows that wagon r sale has increased ....... Was this reason is sufficient to buy this

    FAW V2 Owners Review -1626387
    with this logic suzuki is selling more cul-thus and bolan compared to wagon R, so will you keep preferring cultus over a 1300cc fully loaded v2 in same price? obviously resale shuld not be everything and if you are not aiming to change your ride in next 5 years then i think quality becomes superior then resale.

    Keeping resale to one side (as iam planning to use car at least 5 years )

    Can someone owing the car, and used car for some time brief me on following points
    1. Iam using cultus and major problem is the crappy sound.Can i safely assume after using 50 K this car will not make crappy sounds

    2. How much it is rigid / reliable on bumpy roads (as i have to go to village sometimes)

    3. Will the car hit underneath or its lifted enough as compare to cultus (tires are big)

    4. I live in abbottabad where there is no 3G dealer.....so whether i always have to run for Islamabad or there are somethings which i can manage from local market

    5. How is the response of dealer if incase of any issue
    Looking forward fro your view .....
