I hope they don something about that stupid gear shifts. After using the Swift, I feel so irritated every time I have to sift gears in Wagon R. It's such a unit which acts on its mind!

You got used to the low end torque & not that the torque improved. My dad has a K-Series Wagon R & it still struggles with the low end torque after 12,000 kms. I always have a tough time to get it moving on a ramp inspite of slotting 1st gear and have to revv hard to get the vehicle moving. It stalls too often on such occasions.

You are right. I too felt the same when I drove my relatives K series wagon r. Stalling issues and lack of torque.
