Just thought I would start up this thread because as good as our lil Swifts are im sure there are a few small things you would change about them...


My #1 gripe would be the piss weak excuse for carpet in my Sport - but floor mats cover it :D without them though.... :shock:

thats my only thing I think - oh & the rattles but meh...

i hate it that when i put my sunnies and my wallet on the passenger seat, when i turn they fall off and down the side. Maaaaan its impossible to get them back again. They just dont get stuck down the side, they go for a sail down behind the seat to the back. How frustrating when your short!!!

I hate that after only 5 months:
1. i scratched the front
2. someone badged it (rear badge)
3. someone scratched the back the other day!!!!
Grrrr!!!! (and hence my frustration is Suzuki doesnt have its own touch up paint)....

Other than that it is rather tirvial. I hate that the cd player doesnt have random play. WTF? why not?

I hate it when wankers in Falcodore V28 1,000,000 horsepower cars pull up next to you at the lights and look at you as if you actually wanted a car just like theirs and completely miss the point. :roll:

1.5 swift

lack of power
doesnt rev high enough
rear seat very uncomfortable
cannot switch off abs
dash rattles
engine mounts very soft
weak clutch
vision out of rear window when headrests up is crap

swift "sport"

all the above +
fly by wire throttle response is very slow
most "sport" owners act like they have bought a supercar,but the reality is its a shopping trolley with gawdy seats!!

I hate that zinc dicks aren't classified as hate crimes anymore!
I hate that a CAI and GT stripes doesn't really add 30kwatw....very misleading
I hate that the standard swift didn't come in berocca piss yellow

That's it for me!

No offense dave but why did you bother. Sounds like you bought yourself something you really didnt want in the first place. :?:

Well there is the saying 'you cant polish a turd' .

I think Dave has taken the challenge and is proving us wrong :)

Well he is rebuilding the car to how it should have come from the factory.
So it will have plenty of power,rev higher, the dash wont rattle, abs will be switched off, rear seat wont be there = no more uncomfortable/ vision problem,clutch and mounts will be right and he wont have to pretend it's a supercar as it will be one :wink:

Oh and I didn't like the high seating possition. Felt like I was getting into a van every time.

Bernd-
I am very happy with the car I bought,but realise its limitations in std form.I dont think any of my comments can be disputed,its my honest assesment of the swift and the things I dont like about it.
For your information I would have bought a new swift even if it was a peice of junk(I didnt even bother road testing,or even sitting in one before I bought it) as it is the next generation of swifts in the suzuki family,as it turns out the new swift is quite a good basis to work from.
Stinky-
I read your comments and had to laugh,I didnt even realise thats what I was doing!!

For crying out loud you guys have bought a Swift not a lambo what do you expect for the price and for the price they are great cars?

Yes they could have been better but the cost I am sure would have been higher.

I totaly agree with you papa

but the rattles are annoying, i've lost count how many times i've pulled my front door trims off to try and fix it, but its seems to be rattle free at the moment.

- the clutch seems too high
- with the rear headrests up it's hard to see out the back window

sure there will always be room for improvement, but for what it is and how much I paid for it, I really can't complain.

Thought about buying a swift sport ,but wasnt real happy about its performance being down a little on the ignis sport,Im a Little bit diffrent to others I like cars that give you the true essence of driving . I feel the new swift and others are getting to refined for my taste , squeaks n rattles are just part of cars built for driving . Still saying that the new swift sport Is quiet a nice car and does look the part . :)
