    Default my experience of the PKDM Swift auto (2014)

    Hi there,

    my family has bought a suzuki swift auto in dark blue color.

    I already have a 2010 PKDM swift DLX (https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/mem...ence-new-swift) and have enjoyed it so much that my family decided to buy the auto version of the same car.

    We needed a hatchback with all safety and security features and this is the car that met our requirement.

    I have kept a JDM 660cc (https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/mem...-daihatsu-move) and was not too keen to buy a second hand JDM car this time. especially after this thread: (https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/spo...ese-660cc-cars)

    Total cost uptil now:
    Price of car: 1,416,000
    Tax paid during booking (tax payer) : 50,000
    Insurance (insured for 1,468,000):44,000
    Registration: 53,000
    freight charges: 17,800
    Floor mats and mudflaps (purchased from the suzuki dealership) : 1700

    videos:

    PKDM '14 suzuki swift 0-80 km/hr -full throttle - Video Dailymotion

    PKDM '14 suzuki swift 40-125 km/hr -full throttle - Video Dailymotion

    fuel mileage of first 267 kms : 10.74 km/l (details in post #183)
    Second fuel mileage ( car driven since new -501 km) : 10.52 km/l

    Post 500 and 1000 kms
    Average mileage :10 km/l

    I just quote the facts and give my description of those facts :p
    To be very honest, I haven't had any issues with PKDMs we've owned:
    Suzuki cultus 2000-2010
    Honda civic vti 2002-2013
    Honda civic vti 2005- still have it
    Suzuki swift manual - 2010- present
    Honda civic 2013-present

    We've kept imports too and all had air conditioning units problems
    Ukdm Toyota corolla (bought new) 1988-2002
    Jdm Toyota corolla (bought new) 1991-2005
    Jdm daihatsu move (bought second hand /reconditioned /accidented - I don't know :p) - 2012-2014

    My family's experience with PKDMs has been very smooth and trouble free.
    We had issues with imports from the day they landed in Pakistan. I remember my father used to bring the front headlights of the Corolla from UK himself when a janglee wagon wala used to crash into him. He once brought a whole carburettor too.
    The imports have definitely been more comfortable, but have spent more time at the mechanics than on the roads than their pkdm counterparts.

    And I guess nowadays its still true. Despite seeing so many imports on the roads, the owners have to through a lot of trouble if they break down.

    So yes, I love PKDMs even though they're expensive, have technology from 7 years ago and are less luxurious . But they're trouble free and keep me from sweating and spending excessive cash fixing them up

    Yes, true.
    The faded manual variants knob doesn't look bad, however this won't look good at all in black - once the silver paint has faded.

    Yeah, but I wasn't expecting any miracles either. The manual gave me 8-9 km/l with a rev happy foot.
    Maybe it's because it's less than 1000 km driven?
    My '13 civic gave me 7.3 km/l in the initial running in. It's now stable at 12 km/l.

    I don't know. It should be around 12-13 km/l.
    I did do a few full throttle tests in this as well.

    For manual swift, you could ask people here : https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=157370

    I'm an unreliable person to ask about mileage. Since I rev the manual a lot.

    Wow. Looks amazing. Put a dim red light in the footwell of the front and back seats so that it illuminates whenever you open the door. It will look awesome at night

    What mileage are you getting?
    Mine is 10.7 km/l in the first 300 kms - not reliable since it hasn't been driven above 1000 kms and i'm sure it will improve.
    I guess this will be the lowest limit, which isn't bad.

    Read in article a year or so ago in which the blogger wrote about no mud flaps. According to him it's no more any fassionable. 99.999% cars new or old don't have it. Not a single car or SUV comes with it. It comes as an accessories and don't cost much but still no mud flaps. AUDI Mercedes BMW toyota honda .. not a single mud flap. In last 10 years I have seen it may be less than a dozen time and that too only on Subaru wrx.

    One thought is that it collects dust and dirt which later starts damaging the body panel Over time.

    The only advantage I see is that the water doesn't spray onto the car behind you at high speed driving on motorways.

    Plus I've also noticed that when you mistakenly drive through muddy water, the mud doesn't splash onto the sides of the car if you've mudflaps.

    Don't worry. It will improve after 1,000 kms and become stable after 5,000 kms. We're calculating it all too prematurely
