Suzuki Swift / Swift Sport Ownership

Postby antlind » August 10th, 2015, 6:54 pm

I'm in the market for a small 4-dr vehicle and wanted to get some feedback on the Swift. Are they decent reliable vehicles ?
Any specific problem areas I should look for when inspecting a used Swift?
Thanks for your help.

This thread may be better suited for the Suzuki forum.

Parts expensive and local dealer doesnt stock enough. Resale value isnt that great so you should get a good deal however the tilda pricing is competetive for something newer/roro

Agree with SR on first statement. Resale value has significantly improved though, based on the popularity of the brand. I would say that for Japanese vehicles, Suzuki is running third right now to Nissan and Toyota, strictly from what my observations are.

I'm not a fan of Nissan in general and even if I were, I've seen enough Tiidas get stolen to even consider buying one. I've owned several Suzuki vehicles over the years and am pretty happy with their reliability, build quality and performance....and that's just my opinion.

suzuki's are good, i had a baleno wagon imported foreign used for $39k and sold after 5yrs for $40k!

jimny and grand vitara are great vehicles, so too are the cars. it's just that traditionally in Trinidad toyota and nissan are preferred.

Mitsubishi is good too but for some weird reason the dealer keeps selling the same model for 3 times the time of others. Like the 2006 Lancer ...lol

When you guys say parts are expensive- normal maintenance? or body parts,suspension etc?
