Whos got one?
Do they suck or are they good?
Would they suck to sit in a combination of traffic and highway every day
have they finally banished clutch cables?
could you do a few hundred km's in a day and not want to die?

Granted i only test drove one for about 20mins... but they are comfy. I also test drove a Polo GTI though, and that was WAY better. The swift was a little more noisy and felt less refined, and the Polo seats and steering wheel were awesome.

Having driven both, I agree with Alien. However, the price difference is quite large and the swift feels like there is more room in the cabin.

I would happily drive the swift sport everyday. My mate who is very stocky thought the front seats were a little tight.

depending on the girl, they can also suffer neglect... lol my cousin is a shocker - she delays servicing up to 1000km overdue, runs on flat tyres, only uses the cheapest fuel etc... and she revs the shit out of it. I wouldn't necessarily class a female owner as a positive all the time.

Anyway the topic at hand is who owns one and what do you think, not whats your 2 bit opinion on them

My girlfriend has the swift extreme, has bucket style seats which are way better then stocks. Bit sluggish at take off (auto) but great around the streets and not much cabin noise on the highway.

Danielle's swift sport has been excellent, bought new and never had a problem with it. It just hit 80,000km and is an 09.
The paint/body is cursed i'm sure, rocks and a car park hit and run and car doors its had to have a few touch ups :roll:
They go well for what they are, handle well and love to be revved just like all suzuki's.
I drove a normal swift and it just doesn't compare to a sport, so much better with the 1600 high compression motor over the standard 1500.

Should I buy a swift, it will be the first car ive owned with 4 doors
Also only one of a small few that will retain the back seats, but now I am worried the wimmenz will see this as family ready too

guess ill change my mind tomorrow then

I loved my swift sport. If it hadn't had its life cut short by some bitch in a toyota Kluger, I'd still be driving it now. Brilliant little car.

Royce, just walk into a Toyota dealership with a couple of grand and walk out with a brand new Camry or Corrolla.
Can't go wrong. Sure you'll spend a few years paying it off. But if you think of it as colaterol when it comes time to sell, it's not too bad.

There's nothing like a brand new car.

Or do something really stupid like me and go out and buy a 2nd hand Mercedes SLK or Boxter. :roll:

Really?

I see swifts everywhere up here, but mazda 2's are thin on the ground. Plenty of mazda 3's and MPS' tho.
