Wow! They are charging like the Germans, but Skoda / VW service is only once per 15K Kms. I was charged Rs: 10000 for my 20K KM Baleno petrol service and I thought that was high but yours is on another level.

Also Please cross post here. People are always assuming Maruti service has been cheap, but definitely it's not.

You can order it from the Maruti service centre. Give them the correct part number and it should arrive within a week.

During the third free service, the SA told me that this is a common problem in all Maruti Swift models due to a manufacturing defect. Are BHPians also facing a similar issue? If this is indeed a manufacturing defect then has Maruti publicly recalled the car for a free replacement of brake pads? If not, is there any communication from the company regarding the same?

I have emailed and Tweeted to Maruti today. They have replied that a ASS Manager will get in touch with me.

Thanks!
Hi Kushagra,
I have been using a Swift petrol AMT for almost 3 years. I have noticed that the brake pedal feels quite spongy and the brake bite point comes in when the pedal almost pressed fully which makes it quite difficult to drive in bumper to bumper traffic as the car stops abruptly. I recently got the brake bleeding done and the stopping power has got slightly better but the brake pedal still feels spongy. Are you also facing a similar issue. My car has done about 8500 KM's.

Regards.

Hi qr20de

I ordered the part in Vishnu cars Maruti service in Keelakattai (Chennai) by quoting the part no. They received the item in 5 days.

Re: Maruti Swift : Official Review

Is it possible to retrofit ESP and hill hold assist (that is now offered in the 2021 Swift AMTs) to the pre-facelift (2019) AMT model? Can any tuner help?

Re: Maruti Swift : Official Review

Got my swift's battery changed today. it was the stock battery, served me well for 7 years ( 6 actually, have not started my car since past 1 year.)

Since the lockdown I am in my home town and have been using Dad's car. Swift battery gave up totally after 20-25 days of no use. So, when I got new battery today, I was bit skeptical that whether the car will start up or not, but to my surprise, engine came to life at the first crank, this brought a huge smile on my face . I kept the car running for sometime, then went for a small drive and to top up air pressure and came back home.

Planning to go for a long drive this weekend. Need suggestions on what all I should check considering the car was started after a year.

When was it serviced last? If it was indeed not used for 1 year and idle most of the time I will suggest you get the engine oil + oil filter changed.

Yes, last time I started the car was in April-2020. Last service was done 16-17 months ago. I am thinking of giving the car for servicing, will get engine oil and oil filter changed.

Re: Maruti Swift : Official Review

I have bought a 2016 December Swift ZDI. The speed sensing auto-lock is not enabled. However, when I tried enabling D2-SL2, settings are not saved. Wonder what will be done to resolve this.

Re: Maruti Swift : Official Review

We booked the 2021 Swift VXi this weekend. In the Midnight Blue Color. This will be replacing our 7 year old VW Polo and will join the other MS in the garage(Ciaz S). This will be our 3rd Maruti.

With a budget of 7.5L, had narrowed down on the Tiago XZ and the Swift. Inspite of the additional features in the Tiago, the Swift felt like a better package overall and the VXi variant perfectly fit the bill.
I haven't driven the earlier Swift, but the (new?)engine has some good pep(90PS now). The light gearshift and clutch made it a breeze both on the narrow roads and the highway during the test drive.

With almost all Marutis across all dealers, this is the common situation. Expected waiting period is 45-60 days(this is what they are quoting) but in some cases cars are arriving in approximately a month's time. I am being told this is due to shortage from suppliers' end.

Shashi

Strange. I was promised the VXi in week's time, after booking last Saturday. I am hoping the dealer sticks to his promise.

Congratulations..

May I know what reasons tipped into the favour of Swift. I am interested in the Dzire AGS. The Tiago/Tigor AMT lost only due to the lack of hill hold assist

On the other hand, Zest(recently sold) to a Maruti seems to be a huge downgrade from almost all perspectives. With a tight budget finding a well maintained used automatic car has been unfruitful as well.
