2001 Suzuki Swift Hatchback GL 2dr Hatchback (1.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

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.


Best Features

fun to drive easy to park suprisingly peppy for only 78hp, (i suppose ths is because it weighs so little). fuel economy


Worst Features

hatchback release from interior. less 1980s looking hood release. better cup holders

Review

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.

2001 Suzuki Swift Hatchback GL 2dr Hatchback (1.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

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 economy.


Best Features

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.


Worst Features

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 manufacturer's warranties.

Review

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.


Best Features

Agility Power Fuel mileage


Worst Features

Make more vehicles like this one. We need to conserve energy not waste it transporting one person in a 6,000 pound SUV.
