This is a ownership thread of my Maruti Suzuki Swift VDi.
Before i bought the swift i had Maruti ZEN and Ford Fiesta. later i decided to exchange my zen with a new car. Because my ZEN's A/c cooling gone down to the hot summer in coimbatore. we decided to exchange it.
My options were:
1. Volkswagen Polo
We had polo in our mind because it had good scheme buy in 2013 pay in 2015 so that we almost finalized it later the account statement was not sufficient to avail that offer. So that we dropped it. Proud to be a owner of swift. and will recommend the car to my friends.
the swift is me and my dad's choice because it was our longtime wish to buy a swift but it was not be able to buy one so that later the offer of polo was not able to avail we both were very strong in buying swift.
Verdict: Decided to go for swift.
Buying experience: we started or hunt for the best discounts with all four dealers. after lot of bargains decided to take the car from Jai krishnaa maruti mettupalayam. later there started a problem COLOR? Me and my dad preferred Blazing Red and Silky Silver but my Mom and sister preferred Torque Blue final color was torque blue the winner unfortunately there was no top end varient in blue color with any of the dealer there was only LDI and VDI to choose from so booked Vdi. went and saw the car in their stock yard. payment made through net banking. did not pay any money for lucky number and all we were strong that by nature we'll get a good number as i said afternoon my sales consultant call me and told your car number is TN 38 BW 1139. All formalities done took the car door delivery on 05/01/2014 but not satisfied with the delivery there was no ribbon nothing they not even cleaned the car properly both interior and exterior and we cleaned everything and we did pooja by our own.
Vehicle Cost: 7,60,000/-
freebies:MGA Silver package For Swift, teflon coating, full mat, roots horn, under chassis coating, mud flaps, number plate and perfume worth of Rs.40,000/-
after taking delivery did 1st free service in just one month and went to chennai for the first time which was really awesome trip frankly speaking swift is really a hardworking machine 4 passengers on board and boot full of luggages the car didn't even felt underpowered and it was comfortable. And it was so good so went to chennai 3 times in swift and a one day trip to mysore via ooty and returned via bangalore nice ring road.
now the car has compeleted 22,400Km and i am getting 24.8kmpl to a litre.
Best of the car:
1. sporty chassis and steering
2. good after sales and service
3. high seating position than its rivals
4. best diesel engine to drive very fun to drive.
5. Excellent high speed stability so far done 165kmph effortlessly
Negatives of the car:
1. Worst in class boot space
2. All black interior feels a bit cramped at night.
3. dashboard hit in my knee and leg whenever i press the clutch.
4. even though the engine is effortless in high speed ride the engine becomes too loud inside the cabin.
Yesterday went to 3M car care to wash the car do some body wrap jobs posting some pics of it.
