    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

    Now future of Pakistan is motorway which will go on all destinations so that we all know motorway have no UTurn and stopping things so before go for travel we believe and trust on our rides(Allah knows better what will happen next)but on suzuki i as myself cant trust .its like donkey stop without warning i daily saw mehran cultus(2015 models)on NHA due to water body leak & unrecognized error with resolve in 5mins without doing any thing.FAW v2 have 1300cc which we only can enjoy in 1.5M tag car.if we think Wagon R for Motorway so we will wrong because its have no Airbags,ABS and other features.

I bet after getting clear suspension and comfort difference you will at least put out Wagon R from all this. Who gave you advice of getting FAW if you were not even ready to be a bit more adventurous?

    I got V2, the gear box was producing sound. Got it replaced in 2 days, would you believe it? And voila everything works fine for me MashaAllah. I drive my friend's Swift quite often, it has many problems too mainly the clutch. V2 has better suspension than swift. There are pros and cons.

    Agreeing with the mileage about 10km. That's what you get out of new vehicles mostly. Get your first service and it would be around 12-13. I was able to get 14 but its really an art. If you were expecting more than that then i am sorry you didn't do your homework well, it wasn't a secret we all knew about its mileage.

    One thing just striked me when you said something about Wagon R. Try to sit on rear seat of Wagon R and then sit in your FAW. I am sure you will never ever say something like that again.. You are being too critical so was i. Obviously we all are.


    Go to FAW website, write them an email about your issues, they will give you a call next day. I am telling you their dealership is very responsive.

    When i was gonna buy it, i knew what i was getting. But then i compared it with other cars, and i decided to get it. I really want to promote this car in Pakistan. Because Suzuki is literally managing to scam ud all for years now. I can't survive without ABS. 13-14 km is enough for me. Engine sound is rather beautiful than annoying my friends love it. And oh boy, in the midnight when thr cars rear fog lamps are on, it really smokes all PKDMs! Here in Islamabad people stop me to inquire about it. I just love my V2. Ignore the fact that its Chinese, you will be fine.

    Oh BTW Wagon R doesn't have rear powered windows. I dunno what goddamn sense does that make but its a big joke.
    Jazzak ALLAH bro for giving me patience.

    As far as WagonR is concern, my colleague bought a WagonR 6 months back, and is still trying to get his rear mirror lever replaced. The levers does not work at all. Nobody can make a flawless cars, that is why they have warranties.

    All the issues that you are referring too are issues with the finishing touches. So they will be solved quite easily.
    bro m from fsd . i rang the dealer he was saying dont need to wory about problems we here to help you just take your car in the showroom we will check it and sort out all problems.feeling lil bit better now.
    thanks for your support

    I changed my player with dvd player and inatalled a rear camera as well. The player wiring in V2 is same as in corolla at least thats what the tech told me. My old V2 player fit snuggly in my old cuore, with no xtra wiring or cutouts.

    My brother installed two rear speakers in his v2 and it souds pretty good, by the way he also replaced his stock player with a dvd player.

    Both our players are working just fine, the kids just love it.

    The audio player meets my needs but it doesn't quite go with the pretty dashboard, the bright green can be a little off-putting. I'd like to change it in the future too, AUX is the only thing missing.

    Has anybody had any luck with rain shades? I checked and the ones for Suzuki Liana fit the front windows nicely but not the back. So I would have to find some that fit the back and buy two different sets which isn't ideal. They didn't have Swift ones so I didn't check, wonder if they fit.
    I messaged their Facebook page and the nice person on the other end said I would receive these FOC once they arrive in Pakistan as a gift from the marketing team

    And the V2 has a higher safety rating than Pak Suzuki Swift, which isn't even considered for NCAP testing due to lack of airbags.

    Nice! �� I hope they're stylish like the stock ones that come in some JDM cars.

    Just came back from Lahore tour. On my way back, fuel average 12.5 KMPL, average speed was 140km i think that was prettyyy good!

    From Lahore to Sahiwal, it was a slow road, speed was around 100. Got 14.5.. I don't think its bad at all. I am satisfied. One thing that keeps me wondering is, the air cross sound that comes from back of the rear seat. FAW in Lahore told me that company might recall the cars.

    Also, they will install rubbers in doors.
