Nothing much you can do about it in India unless you file a case against them in consumer court but it would take year time to find solution and its not easy affair :(

Which Service Center and where you have baught this Lemon ?

Explain in this thread the number of problems you are facing so we will know If they are known issues of Swift.

Please remember Swift has lot of known issues and every thing is discussed in this forum, If Maruti had read this Forum or listened to customer feedback they would have rectified many issues in Swift from 2006 onwards.

But unfortunately MUL left out many issues in Swift as it is and since few people don't notice nor care of few issues life goes on

Regards,

Ravi.

One thing that has bugged me from day 1 is that if the Swift goes at speeds exceeding 45kph, I can hear some chik-chik sound coming from somewhere near the Driver seat belt/front right door

Bumping up an old thread.

My dad's 2005 Swift has been dripping green fluid on the front drivers floor for few days now. It is at a very slow rate and after a week is noticeable since it forms a small puddle right below the clutch pedal.
This morning I checked the source and it seems from a pipe under the dash right behind the center console. The pipe is a metal one with a rubber pipe on one half and it seems it's leaking from this joint.
I took the car for a spin with the AC running and checked again and although I couldn't find fresh fluid since I had wiped it clean earlier, the pipe was warm to touch.
Recently the coolant reservoir was almost empty and I had topped it up and has reduced just a bit since.
Is this the coolant or something else?
AC works fine except for the compressor cutting on/off more than often. It was overhauled around 4 years ago.
I wanted some inputs and info before heading to the service center.

I can post a snap of the pipe if required.

Green fluid will definitely be the coolant. Try running the heater. I'm pretty sure you will see coolant leaking when the heater is on.

That is right. The temp control knob is at the center most of the times since anything towards cold becomes too cold.
I guess I have to ask my dad to modulate the temp by turning on/off the AC button till the pipe is checked for leaks.

It should be the engine coolant pipe running into the cabin for heating, which has started a leak. Fix it ASAP
