Default Great

Already 5000+ KM ?? Man, you are catching up fast on the ODO...

Btw, take a look at my thread, already crossed 12000 KM on my Swift LDi. The 10k KM service cost was very decent and the car feels silky smooth after that.

On the top speed front, I went little over 165 KMPH and I doubt if there is a speed limiter inplace. I constantly drive at 130-145 on highways and still manage to get a 20KMPL mileage.

But beware of the brakes, they are not great on stock tyres especially after 140 without ABS, EBD, etc.

Thats the ONLY thing im worried about , because , the suspension is also stable at high speeds and keeps the car stable , but when entering a corner , the 165/80 R14s make me nervous . And when braking real hard the tail comes out a bit ( i.e. 80 - 0 km/h , sudden braking ) .

Maruti recommends swift's tyre pressure 36psi in front and 33psi in rear tyres. Is it not good?

Tyres & roads are stopping it. Dont even try anything above 130kmph on stock JK's.

BTW the car doesnot do a 200 even with proper tyres.

You are so right ... the JKs are real SAD ... will be upgrading my tyres after about 40 k ....

What do you mean by oil change ?
I think that 20k service includes changing all oils - engine, brake, gear etc.

Can you provide the break up of the costs ?
