This is a new place which I tried.I had never had such bad response from the car.
I had around 1/4 fuel in tank and then did a tank full at this pump, I started feeling the drag after a day. It became more evident after 2 days.

The response is poor especially at lower rpms.

I feel that it is the fuel.
First day you didn't notice because the fuel was the previous filled one being used. From day two it was more of the new fuel that was running through the system.
Just wait for a few days and once you are upto half a tank, fill fuel from a reliable pump and you should see some better results.
BTW which is this COCO in Mumbai?

Glad to know that, hope the fuel level was at least 1/4 or below? If not next time wait for the level to go down before you refill.

@Jaggu and other Swift long time owners:-

When i turn the steering wheel all the way to the right or all the way to the left and move very slowly i hear a "tuk tuk tuk" kind of noise. Feels like the axle/driveshaft has some problem. There is some greese in the black (rubber housing just where the drive shaft connects to the wheel).

Did you guys face any. My car has run 39K so far. Has been through all sorts of roads and mild abuse

Sounds like drive shaft problem, but too early in its life!! Get the boot attended to, but sound means damage has been inflicted already.

+1; First check if your boot is damaged, sometimes, even repacking with grease helps. If the noise still persists that means the damage is done (balls or races damaged). If there is no noise when accelerating from a standstill then it seems like an outer CV joint failure.

Got it checked today at MSM Guindy. The service engineer said the problem was with the drive shaft. The sound is coming from the driver side tyre and the boot has grease over it. Boot looks broken or torn as the grease was right on the outer surface of the boot.
There is no noise of any sort accelerating from a standstill and the Service engineer said the car can be driven for at least another 5k kms since the noise is just appearing and it’s not even close to complete worn-out state. I am a bit paranoid now.

@Jaggu and Swift D Owners,
My Swift D is due for service in march as she is about to clock 70k kms.
Would you recommend anything else to be done apart from the normal service?(Read Oil change,Air filter etc)

Also,which is the best engine oil for the Swift D considering I use the Swift D pretty sparingly now? End up driving the Ford more often.

Do advice

Will not this be covered in (extended) warranty?

I use Mobil Delvac MX has given me good results. Reg service refer the manual for maintenance schedule and do the jobs mentioned, apart from any issues that you feel that needs to be attended.

I received a feedback request mail from MASS, along with it was a document on "Operational Tips". Within this document, there was a section on "How to get maximum mileage". The following point was mentioned in it :

From the start gradually accelerate to the speed of 40kmph through 1st to 4th gear. As soon as you touch 40kmph, shift to 5th gear and gradually accelerate to 50 kmph. Keep cruising between the speed range of 50 and 60 kmph in the 5th gear.

Isn't the speed to less for the gear ?
