1991 Suzuki Swift GT 2dr Hatchback


Review

Ahh, my old '91 Swift GT. Easily the most fun car I have ever owned. It was more of a 4-wheel toy than a car. It was quick off of the line, looked great and had awesome mileage for its time. I had the wheels upgraded to 15" alloys with 4 Hercules G3000V P195/50VR-15's. It stuck like peanut butter to the roof of your mouth. I also loved the fact that after 1989, automatic was not available for this car because auto would have ruined the experience. It was like driving a rally car on the highway because it reacted so quick to control input (probably because it had manual steering). The 4-wheel disc brakes made it stop on a dime. My only complaint was that it didn't have A/C standard.


Best Features

Weight: 1,870 lbs. Engine: Suzuki G13B 1.3L DOHC 100hp Transmission: 5-speed manual ONLY (love it!) Suspension: 4-wheel independent McPherson Strut with front sway bar Brakes: 4-wheel disc Great-looking taillight setup (1992 ruined that)


Worst Features

A/C, sunroof, power windows and power locks became standard in 1992 so those got covered but a turbo package option using the turbocharger from the Turbo Firefly would have been great. Also, there was a design flaw in the Suzuki G13B engine where the crankshaft keyway was made of a harder metal than the crankshaft itself and scored it. I lost my first engine that way. I got a 50,000km used-from-Japan engine to replace it for $500.

1991 Suzuki Swift GT 2dr Hatchback


Review

I bought my Swift GT from my buddy's uncle 9 years ago. It had about 130,000 miles on it then. It currently has 245,780 miles on it now still running strong its quick good on gas. Outside of reguler maitenance repairs I've never had a problem with it. Me and my wife and 2 kids have drove from South Carolina to Reno Nevada every year for the past 6 years becase it gets such great gas mileage. Good head and leg room im 6 ft3 in and I've been comfortable enough in it.


Best Features

Great get up and go, good gas mileage, very reliable


Worst Features

More back seat room
