Great little car
By Dan on


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


These little cars are great. We bought this for an in town beater and have become fond of the little car. I average 40 mpg with an automatic. The car is peppy and tight. It will fit almost anywhere. Mine has 130K miles on it and runs like a new one. No, it's not a cruiser but when you think logically... a $15K hybrid barely gets 30 MPG. You can find these little cars for 1,500 to 2,500. They are excellent and cheap little cars. Don't let the low book value fool you.. you can't buy these cheap. They are good cars and people know it. If you want cheap and fun with little operating costs... this is the car. Very practical and well built.

Best Features

Size-MPG-Reliability-fun to drive-not bad on long trips-solid feel-excellent first car.

Worst Features

Make them again. Who needs a hybrid when you can get 40MPG out of a cheap car!
