    Default My Experience of the new Swift

    Hi there,
    I'm sure that there are a lot of mixed views about domestic cars here but my experience with the new swift has been amazing. we bought it a few weeks ago and i have been enjoying every second of it.
    it has some excellent features and has a comfort level which can definitely be compared to the local saloon cars. its acceleration is amazing and thank god it has ABS too, which works perfectly well.
    i'm attaching some pix of the best features of the Swift which i love. enjoy



    first of all, the odometer. it has a drivers seat belt warning light which blinks continuously until the driver puts his seatbelt on.
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018603




    JVC cd/cassette player. it has an auxillary input which is very useful for ipod connectivity
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018604


    electric doors and mirrors.
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018605

    rear ashtray can come out.
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018606
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018607

    rear seats have headrests and seat belts.
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018608

    and they can be folded too
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018609

    and by removing the rear shelf, there is a lot of space. as the rear shelf is not attached to anything(like in the cultus) it can easily be removed
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018610
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018611


    theres no keyhole for the boot nor is there any lever which the driver can pull to open it. instead the boot handle has a button which can be pressed to open it. and it can be opened only when the doors r unlocked, even if the car is on

    My Experience of the new Swift -1018613

    there are 4 speakers, all of them are in the doors. the sound quality is very good.And they have a good bass.
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018614

    rear legroom is ample and 4 people can sit very comfortably
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018615

    the clock, which has a weird "fake" immobilizer light which blinks when the car is off. the manual says that its function is to deter robbers. I say its pointless.
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018616
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018617
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018618

    the a/c of this car is awesome, and the vents r pretty cool too. they can be closed and rotated in all directions
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018619


    it has fog lights too. which makes the front of the car look less "blank"
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018620
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018621

    the radio antenna.
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018622

    the back light.
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018623

    keyless entry. u have to press the unlock button twice to unlock all doors, otherwise only the drivers door is unlocked. the suzuki people give 2 such keys and one simple key.
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018624

    bridgestone tyres and alloys. ABS comes as standard.
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018625


    and now the things i dont really like about the car

    the rear lights will take some getting used to. they are all over the place!
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018626


    there are scratches near the door handles already. i guess its because of the paint.
    My Experience of the new Swift -1018627

    overall, the family loves this car. i think that the price tag is justifiable for a 1300cc fully loaded hatch back. i'm glad that we didnt go for an imported car. I wish it had airbags, but then again beggars can be choosy.. atleast it has ABS

    the only tip is too keep a light foot , which is impossible in such a car. rest includes routine maintenance from an official suzuki dealer, etc which i'm sure everyone does.
    no one would want to keep the rpm below 3k... everyone wants to floor it and take it to 6k , and then you can bye bye to fuel economy

    a few minor quality glitches, as mentioned before... the chrome of the gear has faded away (a new knob from the suzuki dealerships costs 3-5k).. the all black color doesnt look bad though.
    the power window buttons have also faded away

    the rear legroom can be a pain if the front seats are pushed all the way back (which have to be done for 6 footers).
    otherwise legspace is reasonable provided the front seats are moved a bit forward

    Everything in this car has been replaced by the official suzuki dealer. I'm aware that iridium plugs are even better but my family is adamant that everything replaced in this car should be official suzuki stuff :p

    Your family says right because if the parts are replaced from its OEM manufacturer its helps alot in car resale have longer life + peace of mind.

    @omar_575 bhai, I am about to buy a new car but I am confused between vitz and swift, the only thing that is making the decision difficult is the perception of the quality of PAK suzuki , as you have a great experience with swift with almost 61k odometer running so just wanna know that whether the car is making any kind of sounds like any noise in doors or any other, as my current car is an old suzuki cultus 2003 model and when I drive it on little bit on bumpy road it sounds like breaking bones, so please tell me that what is its built quality and what about feul economy... One more thing at the last that in your thread you have mentioned about that fake immobilizer light near the clock what does that mean? Swift actually have any immobilizer or not? Because I live in the sector of islamabad where car theft is at its peak so my priority is a car with an immobilizer.. Asking you about the built quality because I have read in few threads that it's interior is not much durable and a-c vents have been broken and door trims are also a head ach, so please give me answers of these questions waiting for your answers... Your reply will be appreciated.. Thanks

    My swift is a 2010 model. We bought it a few weeks after it was introduced, and most of the parts in it were Japanese. The interior has no creaks and squeaks of any sort. However the silver paint of the gear knob,the paint on the electric buttons on the drivers doors have faded. The JVC player back color too has faded as you can see in my previous posts in this thread. We have had no complaints of any leaks from the boot either which are commonly mentioned here.
    The acceleration of the swift is awesome and you just can't stop flooring it.
    We love it so much that we are even buying an automatic swift in a few months. The clutch plate was ruined (it was clearly our fault), and was replaced in 3 hours. The suzuki mechanics are extremely good and as you can see in my previous posts, we had a minor problem like fuse blow - the mechanics immediately came to my house and started it somehow and took it to the workshop and sorted it out.
    Sorry about that misunderstanding, this car does have immobiliser and works perfectly well.
    We could've bought a vitz but this is brand new and despite being a suzuki it has never let us down and we can't stop flooring it - therefore I can't provide an accurate mileage.
    We had a cultus from 2000 to 2010, it was just horrible... The drive and seats were uncomfortable but this car is nothing like it. You can't believe that it's from same company that is fooling people with the likes of cultus, mehran and Bolan.
    My advice : go for it. We all know what second hand JDMs are like-accidented, etc.
    And believe it or not, I've never been able to figure out the actual mileage. Whenever I keep a light foot, someone on the family always drives it like a rally car and ruins it all... But it's roundabout 10 km/l (not reliable)
    What makes me smile every time is when I floor it on gentle curves, it's so balanced and it literally urges you to go further.
    To be very honest, this is the sportiest local car available in the market. You will love it.

    I can achieve as high as 15kmpl in city with a light foot and hypermiling. That involves changing gears under 2500rpm and keeping a steady foot. With AC, it drops to 13-13.5kmpl. Highway at speeds of 80-90 without AC- 16.5-17kmpl. Motorway @120kmph without AC- 15kmpl.

    The reason for good fuel average is big engine-small car. Less power needed to pull it even though it has the ancient M13-A Liana engine. When ever i go for refueling, I finish off everything by driving at 4000-5000rpm Fun everytime!
    Turbo lag is like foreplay. You know it's coming. And it's gonna be good.

    The reason for good fuel average is big engine-small car. Less power needed to pull it even though it has the ancient M13-A Liana engine. When ever i go for refueling, I finish off everything by driving at 4000-5000rpm Fun everytime!
    I think I will have to recheck my cars mileage then. This requires me to control my foot and drive it like a 660cc jdm.. That's a hard task :p
