This is my review of my Swift Diesel a.k.a Swift VDI.
So, I m presenting an ownership report of my Swift VDI in Silky Silver color. His name is Silver Shark. He had done 69700 Km in 30 months 11 days.
First the selection process before buying Swift Ritz -
My father didn't like the rear looks, But I love the tallish looks. D-Zire-
My father didn't like it because it is expensive than Swift and Rear Bulky looks. Punto -
Tata Service. Manza-
Same as Punto. Fiesta -
Ford Resale. Ikon Diesel -
Same as Fiesta.
Finally decision taken after all cars TD.That is Swift VDI.
We had booked Swift on January 3rd week, the waiting period was just 25 days. First, we had booked Sunlight Copper, but they don't have SC colour. So,they had Silver in stock and booked it finally in that colour. So, got my Shark on Feb 8th 2010. The dealer was Acer Motors. It was nice experience with them. The SP was Sridhar Reddy.

-DDIS engines are smooth
-Front seats are super comfortable
-It is giving excellent FE
-Maruti Network and
-Maruti Resale Value. -ves
-I hate Maruti company, but I love Swift more than Maruti
-Rear seat space is worse than others
-Bare bone interiors. New Swifts are better than ours and
-Junk JK Tornado Tyres. But,later, we replaced it with Michelin XM2 185/70R14 last month.
Recently, added Michelin XM2 185/70R14.
Here is the review of my new Michelin XM2 Tyres,
I changed my tires to Michelin XM2 185/70R14 after taking advice from my friend
. My Michelin's are super silent and smoothest than my stock tires, JK Tornado. And my old tire front left side tire was torn on Sunday(22nd July) and changed the tires of Swift finally.
Price - 4875/tire
With 4 tires - 4875 X 4 = Rs. 19,500/-.
The dealer of tyres was Mohan Chandra. They did there nice work and owner of the shop TD'ed the car after installing tires and after W/A and W/B.
My Father and My Driver drove the car. My Driver drove 3 Km and My Father drove 16 Km after fitting Michelin's
What an impressive tires
. They reduced Rs.4975/- to Rs. 4875/- by Rs.100/- Discount for Michelin.
Overall, nice and amazing tires.
Overall, a happy Swift owner
Pictures are coming soon.
