My car has clocked 3k on odo,few problems has croped up:-
1.when i accelerate in 1,2,3 gear there is typical noise that one can hear this ound is very typical in indica too,when one pedal in lower gear that sound is audible with windows closed,it's low note sound seems like something revin up( as i think it's associated with rpm),i am not able to define sound as i don't have a exact word for it!any ideas what could be it!!!
2 Rear windows are making a lot of noise, any wuick idea to get it corrected!!!
3 after the first service of the car,whne i press the pedal for barkes there is noise just like when one feels when the ear get blocked by air for sometimes..i thought might be cause of wet pads but after doing 2000k more the sound is still there!!!!
Plz advice
Cheers!

1) you may be driving/changing gears in the lower band of the rpm. If you drive in approapriate gears and appropriate speeds this sound can be avoided. Try it out.
2) Go to the MASS, they should be able to fix it.
3) No idea

reading the swift diesel reviews, i'm getting the feeling that swift petrol isn't powerful enough? is it so??
or is it obviously having more punch than the diesel??

Heartiest congratulations mate, on your new addition to the family. I have a little brat of my own so I know how much fun it can be! You'll enjoy every minute of it (soon) - currently you'd be experiencing insomnia!

Just as a FYI, you might wanna get one of those baby seats with child restraints which you can fix in the rear seat of your car. Not only will it be safe for him while travelling but also it'll keep him comfortable too. Ignore this advice if you've already got one by now.

regards,

Without using too much technical jargon, it is safe to assume that SwiftD is powerful than SwiftP

Coming to technical jargon, SwiftP produces 87BHP of power and 11kgm torque. Whereas SwiftD produces 75BHP of power and 19kgm of torque. It is also safe to assume that due to higher torque on SwiftD, it will be super fast from standstill as it has greater pulling capacity and SwiftP can probably catch up with SwiftD later on in the gears ( owners confirm, please).

Default curious mileage issue!

Hmmm! 6700kms on the odo and it has indeed been a pleasant experience with the swift D, particularly at the petrol pump. In Bangalore traffic, it returns 17-18kms / liter. What was confounding to me is the highway mileage - I expected more, but the last two trips have been around 19-20. It is not that I drive with pedal to metal but more at a sedate pace.

Anyone else with the same experience?

Thanks
Mahesh

Talk the Torque! I like that

It has that nice diesel low-revs power, and, without labouring the engine, one can often avoid a downshift that would be necessary in a petrol car --- even one with a 'more powerful' engine.

Hi Mahesh,

I am getting only 16 in Bangalore traffic(can go even worse, if the traffic situ is real bad) and never got above 20 kmpl on highways, even with some sedate driving.

However, I use almost 100% a/c and never switch off at signals.

Mahesh, Kuttappan

Its long time since I checked my Blore City mileage but I got 15.5-17 kmpl. (with 50% A/C and switched off in long 2/3minute signals)

In long drives, I got 20+ always with again 50% A/C (maintaing the RPM below 2400)

Default 5000km review up on my site too...

tacho, jaggu answered your question

hsv, thanks for that tip, i ll see what I can do to procure one. I definitely need a 100 straps on this car!!

mobike to answer your question read this review.

mahesh the highway mileage depends on how you drive your car. and with a car like swift D, whos bothered about mileage

to all you guys, my review is a bit too long, but still might answer or tell a few things about the talk on this thread.

enjoy
Srik

Now i want advice on this tyre issue got it checked from maruti dealer he said suspension arm has got a bend and need a replacment,rim should be replaced!!!!
Car hit the devider in a striaght line but the impact was on right side only,how can i insure that left side is fine!!!!!
SHould i remove the dent on rim or just replace it!!!
And most imp of all the small cracks that has appeared on paint on the bonnet!!!!!How should i get in painted,should i get the full bumpr painted for just the effected area!!!!
Total cost exc paint job will cost suspension arm(forgot the exact name of the part)1800,rim1500,wheel cover 800,,,
SHould i calim it or go for NCB!!!!
ANy idea bout the paint cost for the above job!!!
And what else should i check to see the effects of impact,the effects though not visible but might exists!!!!!!
Plz advice!!!!

gill you ought to be careful while driving this car as i already mentioned. now that you have done the damage, i prefer you get the whole bumper painted. also maruti wont lie to you on whats to be done w.r.t suspension. its in your own best interest that you get that suspension repaired. and a rim wont cost you too much you can replace it. alternatively consider going in for alloys if money permits you!

i am not sure why the rim is costing you 1500? what sort of rim is thi? is it the tyre rim or the wheel arch? if its the former it wont cost much, if its the latter best to get dent repaired and leave it alone. and why the hell is wheel cover 800 bucks? i think these parts you can get it done from a accessories dealer and not from maruti. just get the technical stuff done from them. you could visit the workshop and ask them to show you the underneath of the car by lifting the car up.

hope this helps.
