    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

    thanks

    No i didn't- I had to drive for a minute with a flat tyre because I had to attend a course and was running late. But the rim is fine. The tyre has also been fixed. But i do not think its safe to drive with it so I might get a new tyre

    put the tyre on a balancing machine and hold a pencil on top of it just barealy touching the surface if the tyre does not hit the pencil means its uniform and not bent or anything, most probably the small impact momentarily detached the beads from the surface causing it to loose air, mounting it properly should make it all good, just check and if deemed not safe then replace it anyway.

    btw tyres are mysterious things, remember the continental tyre of my altis that all of a sudden went flat? well i just put air back in didn't do anything else its been two weeks now i have been driving the car and till yet it shows no sign of loosing pressure or puncture or any defect. really mysterious how the air got out in first place maybe nitrogen want filled properly and now it has air in it or maybe someone played a prank on my driveway.

    This guy is such a wonderful storyteller
    Omar, you make one fall in love with the car you review.
    Honda, Suzuki, Toyota... Hire him while you can.
    You know, somebody actually complimented me on my parking skills. They left a little note on the windscreen, it said "PARKING FINE".
