Reliable and economical transportation

Vehicle2001 Suzuki Swift GL 2dr Hatchback (1.3L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewBought 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 FeaturesGas 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 FeaturesCar 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.
