just bought one of these used a few months ago, has a good rigid feeling build quality to it. with auto-tranny gets about 34-37mpg in town..my girl friend uses this mostly for trips to and from work/stores in and out of town a lot... I use it to delivery pizzas when she doesn't need it, being able to drive 200 miles in a day for a few bucks worth of gas is a real moneysaver. being able to buy this "new" of a vehicle for only $2500 and then getting great milage to boot, can't complain. No mechanical problems to mention. can change oil on this car without jacking it up- the clearance is good for a car- wheels are at corners- so never a problem with speed bumps, no bottoming out.
fun to drive easy to park suprisingly peppy for only 78hp, (i suppose ths is because it weighs so little). fuel economy
hatchback release from interior. less 1980s looking hood release. better cup holders
I have had problems with the A/C ever since I bought it, maybe its because the tiny engine cant run an A/C very well, but when the temperature outside gets over 100 degrees it barely works. Other than that the car is flawless. I previously owned a 94 swift and after 155,000 miles I never had a single problem. These cars will run forever.
Bought this car new. 17 months of
trouble free driving at an average of 42
mpg in the city. Perfect commuter
transportation for those who aren't in a
hurry to hug the bumper of the SUV in
front of them. Comfortable front seats
with controls and gauges ergonomically
designed. Not having ABS brakes makes
for some fun cornering if you're in the
mood, but don't expect to accelerate
past much of anything on the road with 4
wheels and a motor. 79 horsepower is
the price you pay for that great fuel
Gas mileage. Simplistic interior. Low
maintenance. Color (silver) looks great
with tinted windows. No fear of having
the car stolen. General maintenance
items are dirt cheap.
Car should have been advertised better.
Resale values stink. Thicker metal on
side doors, hatchback and hood would be
nice. Lack of a tachometer is annoying,
as is no interior hatchback release.
Suzuki needs to offer longer
This is my first Swift but have had two
Geo Metros (same car). The mechanicals
are bulletproof. The car is very
economical, comfortable and easy to
drive. I have made 1500 mile trips in
two days in these vehicles.
Agility Power Fuel mileage
Make more vehicles like this one. We
need to conserve energy not waste it
transporting one person in a 6,000
