To the Swift!
By collegeguy on


2001 Suzuki Swift GL 2dr Hatchback (1.3L 4cyl 3A)


Bought this for college @ 60k it's at 110k now over the course of 1.5 years. I love things and hate things about it. Manual everything is my style and cassette player is great for cheap mp3/i pod playing. Has no ponies but once up to speed is fine, however the automatic gets terrible mpg (25 highway ~33-35 town) at higher speeds. Snow tires/cruise control/remote starter/new speakers are all great upgrades. All replacement parts are cheap for these puppies. Be prepared for the "Suzuki Squeal" i.e. the fan belt squeals loudly since the design has no tensioner. I'm currently trying to ghetto rig a fix for this. I'm also having AC problems but just use recharging kits from Wal-Mart to fix

Best Features

Uncommon, you will join a brotherhood. Other drivers will recognize and respect you. Since its light weight can get around in Fargo winters with snow tires. Tiny engine always starts in the cold.

Worst Features

Just drive the thing and fix the small problems that come up. Ignore the people that joke about the car.
