Wow! You are weighing, comparing and confused between two very different animals - say an elephant and a cheetah. What is the requirement and current thought process?

Seeing your dilemma, I guess the upcoming international Vitara will be the right vehicle for you - compactness combined with road presence.

[*]Equipment: There were some significant omissions in the VXi variant: electric ORVM adjustment, rear defogger, tilt steering. All these were present even in WagonR of that model year. Considering that Maruti was re-using significant parts from Esteem, including the engine, I believe they had scope in the pricing to add these...
That's a nice tribute. As for the equipment for price point, I think Maruti couldn't really do it with first gen Swift petrol with a 1.3L engine. They had already lost the price advantage & didn't qualify for the lower excise bracket.

Later when the K-series engine was introduced, they didn't reduce a single paise there by easily making a good margin on the product.

Hello All,

I also have a Maruti Swift Zxi, 2012 purchased and we call her as 'Laado'. We have taken her to multiple places within India and our 'Laado' has performed as per the expectation. She is one of our trusted family member. No breakdown, no niggles, no trouble apart from some small issues like replacing the ORVM adjustment knob and two times puncture.

However, since last two months, a 'spring stretch' type of sound is coming while moving in a slight incline road and recently took her to MASS to figure out the issue. After a test drive with their engineer, it was found that rear axle suspension is having problem and they have suggested me to replace the suspension for which they have provided me estimates of Rs 12500. I had a talk with their SE Mr. David who is my trusted SE since last 4 years and he has mentioned to me that even if I am not going for replacement, there is no issue and can still drive with the same suspension even for next 2 years. As I travel a lot and I am visiting Munnar again during Dec, whether I need to be worry? Do I need to change or I can still drive without any problem?

Please suggest.

Take a look at this Swift making its way across the track at Nurburgring! It is a miracle that is does not flip. One can just imagine the amount of damage to the body an identical Swift made for India would be subject to!

My 2008 model 1.3L Swift Petrol makes a whistling sound at low RPMs. Got throttle body cleaned but it did not help. What could be the possible reason?

There is a lot of rattling noise coming from dashboard in my My Swift Vdi 2013. The current odo reading is 47000 kms.

It is very irritating, This noise is audible at almost all RPMs but it is higher in lower RPMs specially during cold starts.

Where can I take the car to get it fixed? Annual/10k service is some 5-6 months away.

Anybody knows of a place in Gurgaon/Delhi other than MASS?
