Suzuki Swift Hatchback 1.3 GL 5d (2005/54) - Owner Review

Steering responsive but make sure tyre pressures are spot on. Loads of floor and steering knocks and vibration on rough roads, strange knock from rear of car. Creaky and snappy clutch action.

Standard immobiliser, central locking, car to obscure to be in demand by thieves.

Service

2 out of 5

Dealer could not be bothered once money has changed hands, technical guys fail to recognise faults or undertake quality repairs or PDI.

Problems

Bodywork
Crimped rear bumper changed, bonnet changed due to bad paintwork. Bad paintwork on inner rear door jams dealer says this is normal, vinyl door trim scratched and poorly repaired by Preston Suzuki dealer.

Engine
OK for now.

Gearbox
Gear stick shroud torn.

Other
Fails to source parts easily, brake discs score easily, dealer thinks this is normal and poor road damping also normal to dealer and Suzuki UK Rep. Car was not like this on first purchase?
