Suzuki Swift 1.0 GLS Sky 3d (2003/03) - Owner Review

Pocket rocket for a 3 cylinder 1.0, fun is a standard feature and it is the lightest car I have ever driven. Superb power steering, excellent gearbox, but a little firm as it is sow low to the ground.

Value

5 out of 5

Sub 9,000 miles and pristine condition 2003 Japanese car for £2,100. Could you buy anything better for less?

Costs

5 out of 5

45 MPG urban & up to 62 MPG on a run, DIY servicing very easy and parts not too expensive. Add the lowest group tax & group 4 or less to insure, its as cheap to run as a motor bike.

Performance

Stunning for the engine size, like driving a 1960's MG Midget.

Reliability

5 out of 5

If it is serviced well, it won't go wrong.

Sky model with GTi spoiler and sports seats doesn't look half bad.

Comfort

3 out of 5

Ride firm, but this adds to the fun. It is surprisingly refined on a smooth road in top gear however and is very relaxed at motorway speeds.

Security

Can't really comment, never broken into or attempted as far as I am aware.

Service

1 out of 5

Service myself as it is so accessible. Any non franchised garage would have no problem with it.

What appeared to be annoying rattles from behind the dash, turned out to be just the plastic panels rubbing together. Spray silicon spray or WD40 and this will cure the problem.
