Does the new Swift come with a ac cabin filter? If not will MASS provide it with one if requested?

The service advisor himself is clueless about how this could have happened, however pointed out this is not a one off case. My car has just run close to 2000 km and in stock condition. Surely a bad experience, especially considering the hype surrounding Maruti reliability and service.

I do have my doubts on a foul play from the Service Centre, purposeful or not. Will be taking it to local workshop to verify the same.
Just checking in to know if this issue was sorted? I reported the same and they did a change of brake pads etc. The issue didnt go. It was again highlighted in 10K service but they did nothing and the issue still persists. I gave up on it until today, I had to apply emergency brakes behind a merc. The brakes jus shudder and screech and there's absolutely no control you have over the cars stopping power for that one second. Luckily i stopped an inch before the merc. But has anyone got a fix for this?

Though the discs and pads were changed, the problem still remains, but is more bearable. Braking performance of the car remains pathetic as ever.

Rated 5 stars! A great product, but not the best Maruti could have done. I donít understand why features like height-adjustable front seatbelts, rear fog lamp and temperature gauge have been deleted But what kills it for me is the steering. A far cry from the Swifts of yore. Lest we forget, it was the steering feel, handling and fun-to-drive nature (coupled with Marutiís reliability) that has made the Swift so popular. As an owner of the first-generation model, it is definitely not as sporty as before. That said, it is definitely on top of my list at the time of my upgrade

You had a go in the petrol or the diesel? I find the K series petrol to be better than the G series engine, few don't agree, but its ok, we can agree to disagree.

The current gen is as sporty and the plus part is, the ride has got better, the first gen was crashy over potholes, this is not, though the build [kerb weight] is light and it shows, but over undulations and imperfections, its ok. I do drive the ZXi+, with the fatter OE tire, so my opinion is based on that.

I own the 2007 ZXi petrol G series. The K series is better too (at least my opinion). I donít have a problem with the ride quality, Iím fine with it. What kills the feel is the steering. If only it were not so feather light . Yes it is really sporty, I was a little annoyed at that time so I guess I wrote such things. Will definitely upgrade to the new model. I have the stock 185 section tires (yes, with the famous full size spare and alloy )

You can do it. But:-

1) sockets are different so is the wiring. Youíll have to make a custom harness to fit it
2) DRL functions (dimming when the headlights are on, turning on when car unlocked) is all linked to the BCM via a DRL module will be lost

Not worth the effort, but itís certainly doable.

Can fellow new Swift owners mention what stock tyres they have got? Are the Apollos any good?

Got back from a 5000-km round trip yesterday. Bangalore-Mumbai-Lothal-Zinzuwada (Little Rann)-Patan(Rani-Ki-Vav)-Dholavira(Great Rann)-Bhuj-Lakhpat-Kalo Dungar(Great Rann)-Mandvi(Vijay Villas Palace)-Ahmedabad-Mumbai-Bangalore.

The car performed great, was great fun to drive on the fantastic roads of GJ! Didn't feel fatigued even after covering long distances, day after day at a stretch. Very decent highway performer.

Swift comes with an AC Cabin Filter. It can be accessed easily by removing the glove box.

Swift comes with either Bridgestone Ecopia EP150 or Apollo Alnac 4G. For your second question, I am quoting a post from a tyre expert below.

Brand new Apollos to Brand new anything else wont be worth the money unless the brand new something is some super high end tyre like Michelin PS4 or Yokohama Advan Sports

I guess you could find the answer to your question by looking into clutch assembly on boodmo.com.

Funnily, it shows 50kmpl(if I remember correctly) when you go downhill at a good speed without throttle input. I have attached my Fuel log sheet. Initial high FE points due to shell petrol. Below average FE points due to various puducherry bunks(never tried ashram bunk) and once in kumbakonam bunk. Latest high FE points due to Essar bunks. Average till now for 5.5k km is 19.6km/l.
