And yeah, 162000 and still going strong eh !! Now please head to the Long Term Ownership forum and pen down a detailed one

But before that, just stop by the rules & announcements once please.

Jeez! Do you own an Enfield showroom or what?

Do post your ownership reviews in the appropriate sections of the forum

Enjoy your stay here !

I did around 80,000 kms in US in one year. The roads were inviting, fuel was cheap, the car was amazing and above all, there's no concept called public transport. Now you make me feel like a gross underacheiver clocking 1.65 in 3 years in India.
People used to call me a truck driver back in US. Way to go dude.

thank you all guys...
have been using the swift extensively as an all out touring, office conveyance, offroading, and everything else in between sort of car....
my average travel daily is around 170 kilometers so that amounts to the kind of mileage the car has put on. the car has never been down and has never left me stranded in the middle of the road...have done valsad jaipur in 13 hours flat...non stop and valsad delhi in 19 hours flat...that too non stop....still jotting down a detailed writeup which will be up as soon as i put the finishing touches...and as eddy rightly said...not here...will also put up the fotos of the condition of the car that its in now....and as far as the body rattle is concerned it does rattle some but not that will make you think the car is falling to pieces. its the typical maruti rattle that all the cars right from the 800 to the sx4 will tend to have with this much usage. but trust me its not that bad and the car is dead quiet on good roads...tends to rattle a bit when you hit a bad patch but nothing to be concerned about. all in all i believe i got a good run for the money i paid for the car. not gonna sell it off because the way the engine is performing, i think 500k kilometers will be easily covered before something major comes up. and who knows, maruti may decide to present me with a brand new swift in exchange of this just to get to study it and diagnose the long term run review. hehe
