    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

    Go slow over the speed breakers and if you can, at an angle.

    And the car is higher than a city, thanks to its awesome front suspension... Made in Pakistan, for Pakistan.

    Turbo lag is like foreplay. You know it's coming. And it's gonna be good.

    Thanks for the reply.
    So, can we say, if Honda city can pass a speed breaker straight without hitting it, Swift can easily do the same.

    Ask us, the JDM owners, speedbumps are a pain in the bottom, of the car! I have to slow down to almost zero before crossing one, and then there are some no matter how much i zigzag the car i still hear a heart-wrenching scraping sound.

    The thing about PKDM Swift- It's raised from the front, so you have to kinda go easy on the front as well, otherwise you will hear the shock compress, and I hate that sound. Plus, it smashes the front down, since it's already high, it travels harder down.

    -.- Just go slooooow and easy

    Oh that's great. You're buying the right car - no spares, tuning hassles. Comes with warranty and has all the safety and security features.
    I haven't had any issues with the bottom of the car scraping any speed bumps - atleast here in lahore. I've had the manual variant for almost 4 years now and haven't had any problems of that sort.

    What's the color of your car?

    Tell you the truth, I made my final decision after going through your thread. And again, I appreciate your input on my query. In Lahore we come across these speed breakers a lot but I think, if going slow works then I am okay with that. BTW, my swift's color is going to be Pearl Red.

    That's what speedbumps are made for.
    They are made to reduce the speed of car!

    But Pakistani's speed bumps are a class apart..
    They have unusual shapes.
    Even In Islamabad we have to face the problem of bad bumps!
    They are poorly made.

    I have seen some bumps made out of bricks, especially in Shadare Lahore, even my ex-cultus hit them which has a high ground clearance.

    Congratulations @omar_575 on your purchase. Hope you will enjoy it more than your manual Swift. Our Swift auto gives around 11 to 11.5 kmpl with A/C in Pindi/ISB. Without AC it was over 12kmpl. The car has done near to 9000km so far and nowadays it also goes to AJK at least once a month.

    Thank you bro
    Oh that's a very good mileage. I hope my autos mileage improves. It's still less than 700 km driven.
    It's a bit boring than the manual but the auto tranny is a blessing in traffic.

    seeing alot of swifts these days- even automatics are in demand.
    i guess its mainly because of the high price of the 2011-2014 JDM vitz and this thread (https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/spo...-660cc-cars):P

    anyway, my car has done around 800 kms- took it for its free first 1000 kms( or 45 days post delivery) inspection.. they tightened the nuts and bolts and now the suspension feels softer.

    the car is a joy to drive, especially in the terrible lahori traffic. and it can go up to 120 km/hr with not a very rpm (despite being 4 speed) so i'm planning to take it on a motorway trip too.

    a strange problem that was also in my 2010 swift (resolved on its own) - whenever we close any door of the car with the windows up, the door never closes, unless we use a bit of force- the suzuki walay say that it's a common issue in all new swifts and fixes on its own.
    i don't understand the physics here .

    @omar_575: Looks like a nice buy, mashAllah. Can you tell me if the rear seats can be folded 40/60 or only the complete seats must fold? Like, can we have part of the rear seat folded allowing some large object (luggage etc.) to be put while a passenger is sitting on one side of the rear seat (on the unfolded part).

    i don't understand the physics here .
    Simply its because of air trap inside cabin.
    When you push the door, the door presses the air inside the cabin, due to all closed windows there is no place for that pressed air to go. So it just doesnt allow the door to close properly and you have to smash it.
    Therefore if one of the window is opened or one of the door is opened, you can feel that it requires v less force to close the door, cz in that case the air moves out from the cabin from the windor/door openings.
    Leave sooner, drive slower, live longer
