Congrats Ajay on your new possession.Hope you have a trouble free ownership experience with your Swift.Its always good to buy something that your heart wants.Its just a very good feeling when your head and heart are in sync with each other.
I'm sorry to say that I've been hearing really nasty things about swift not only on this forum but the cat is out of the bag,general public is talking about it.My boss is planning to buy a car and in a discussion with him,he told me about two of his friends who initially chose the swift and later on opted for the Getz due to stories of quality glitches with the Swift.
You've really hurt Palio lovers on this forum by comparing it to Xeta and Santro.LOL.But its a free forum and your definitely entitled to your views.I too believe that driveability wise Santro and Xeta are better than Palio 1.2 NV.I owned one so I know.Infact the Palio 1.2 does feel irritating to drive at times in traffic with a/c on.Apart from that one comparison,its like comparing chalk and cheese.Palio as a car itself is beyond comparison to any other car in its class,be it 1.2 or 1.6 or 1.9 diesel.My views only.Good luck!

Leg space and boot space problem is blown out of proportion it seems. Its not that bad at all. I drew the car accomodating 5 adults and 1 kid, with 5 Mid size bags and 2 big bags piled up in my boot comfortbly. Is that not enough ? I think it is. Yes Its not meant for loading and dont forget It is still a small car afterall.Small cars are like a 2BHK flat...you should know that you are moving into flat and not in bunglow.

[/quote] hi brother in this matter what is your height??
only the space matter to the 6 footers in the front,who want to ride the car like an f1 racer..
so the issue is not for the ones who stick their chest by the steering wheel....
hope i dont hurt anybody's feeling's here!!
but i am 5-11"..

Congrats Ajay for your new car.
And let me add something to your support on your views for Palio,Xing and Xeta.
I totally agree what you said, according to me, any product in this world is good or bad for it's price for the end user's(common people) but for enthusiast or a perfectionist, it is good or bad for it's quality. Xeta is a great car for it's price where as Palio is not. If Palio was such a great Product it should have been selling in great numbers till today and with all that money Fiat would not have had any issues to provide A.S.S. Most of the time whenever anything is called good or bad, it is in the context of the price it is coming at and Ajay rightly said that other cars are not great VFM. But he bought Swift because he doest not care about VFM part, just the way Palio owners don't care about it either.

Congrats for your Swift....

n ppl pls dont start flaming him bcos he didnt like Palio...

Palio is no doubt a good car but it has that rigid feel in it....may be its the seats that need to be a little comfy...which is not liked by all....Also there's not a car in market which will be liked n accepted by all.....

Congrats on getting the Swift! It is a great car--I have been driving one since April last year and have never regretted it and heartily recommend it to everyone else. As for rattling, etc, after 9 months and 7500 kms, I am inclined to believe a mountain is being made of a molehill. I drove a friend's 6-month old Skoda Octavia L&K from Pune to Bombay over the weekend and it 'rattles' more than my Swift! The L&K is the fully loaded Octavia and luxury-wise is far, far ahead of the Swift and costs 3 times as much, and is definitely put together far better than the Swift. So how come it rattles? Indian roads is more like it!

And Maruti service is simply unmatched. Yesterday, another friend who owns a Swift and faced a minor niggling hum that most would consider unaudible told me how they managed to find the problem in the door and sorted it out--he was maha impressed.

And it's no wonder that the Swift was car of the Year in so many countries last year!

So, enjoy the Swift and safe driving!

Man you should see the Indicab drivers here in Bangalore (or anywhere else) to see how anyone can drive an Indica(b). There is no word called "Reluctant" in their dictionary hahaha. If they can drive a diesel Indica this way surely a Xeta can be driven in the same manner if not otherwise...
