Damn! My swift dosnt go into reverse gear eaisly. Usaually takes 4-5 tries to engage properly. REst all gears are smmoth. I guess this problem may be related to swift clutch issues discussed enourmously elsewhere.

Might be that the pressure plate is not disengageing the clutch fully making the gear shifts harder!

Reverse gear issue is a known thing with cars from Maruti stable. So nothing to worry about, Just reclutch until it falls in the slot. !!

Btw is BUSA's Swift a petrol or diesel one ?

I am not facing this problem though I am facing a slight harshness in changing gears, it is smooth at some angles other times it gives a rought feel.

My Swift VDI also gives issues while putting reverse gear. Have to release the clutch and then put again. But what you say is a news for me! The mechanic told me the same during first service but i dismissed him thinking he is just avoiding the problem. But this is weird that such a problem can come up in a new car, and the fact that we have to live with it...even weirder!!!

Is it for sure nothing can be done about this, or someone has found a solution?

That's because in our relatively cold temperature these days the gearbox oil temperature drops & the oil thickens which makes changing gears a little difficult. Once the oil is warmed up the problems should disappear though.
