Everything seems to be okay related to ac drain pipe. Ac is also effective.
Any suggestions?
Issue related to AC is what I guess.
You may go through the following thread, which might be of some help to you.

Re: Maruti Swift : Official Review

Could someone please suggest better floor mats for the new Swift. I mean the rubber-type floor mats. The manufacturer/dealer-supplied ones suck, do a pathetic job of trapping sand. Am about to take the car for an extended period to the coast and that means a lot of beach sand!

Any particular brand that works, or just go to one of the car accessories shops and get a generic set? Am pretty sure anything would be better than what we got with the car.

(Thanks in advance for any pointers!)

I have not used any rubber mats except for the ones that came with the car and I absolutely hate them. Been using the 3M Nomad mats in my Swift close to one year now. Cost me 6K if memory serves me right. They do a very good job of trapping sand, water etc. You could give that a try.

Swift Scores 0 stars In Latin NCAP Crash Test

I hope this Latin NCAP crash results grows some brain cells in Maruti Cars designers and some bit of safety sense amongst buyers:

Engineers have done their job well, a light weight fuel efficient spacious reliable good driving car that kept it's cabin intact during a crash while deploying the airbag as designed. Seems alright to me.

Re: Maruti Swift : Official Review

Just curious: Getting a 0-star rating and airbags/cabin being intact is considered OK?

Yes, it's a fuel-efficient city car but what's that got to do with safety? People will use it for highway rides just as much.

Here are some of the excerpts from Motorbeam's article on this crash test:

Its adult occupant protection score was 6.21 points or 15.53 percent in total. In the frontal offset deformable barrier test (64 km/hr), the Swift offered weak protection to the driver’s chest and adequate protection to the passenger chest area.

The Suzuki Swift Latin NCAP side test (50 km/hr) showed that the car offered good head and pelvis protection, adequate abdomen protection and poor chest protection. Also, the rear passenger door opened and thus the Swift was awarded 0 points for this test.

Latin NCAP rated the Swift’s footwell area as unstable and bodyshell as boderline unstable without the capability of withstanding further loadings.


More importantly, we have our own analysis here:

Re: Maruti Swift : Official Review

My car will become 3 years old next month. It has the factory Amaron (black top) battery. I am expecting a battery replacement in the next year so wanted to know the battery no for Amaron green beforehand for the 2019 Swift pertrol MT.

Will AMARON AAM-GO-00038B20L or AMARON AAM-FL-36B20L be correct Amaron for the new Swift. These are 35 AH.
AMARON AAM-FL-36B20L is 32 AH. Will this be suitable?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Maruti Swift : Official Review

Hi BHP-ians

My cousin has booked the 2022 Maruti Suzuki Swift ZXI AMT and he enquired to his SA about retrofitting the reverse camera from ZXI plus. The SA says its doubtful and he needs to check with the technicians.
Has anybody here done the same? If yes, how much were you charged from the dealer?

Re: Maruti Swift : Official Review

Hey guys,

Has anyone booked a Swift ZXi recently? I am asking because when I took the quote, the SA was only saying there is 10k discount, however the consumer offer from MS shows 15k on a certain website for Suzuki Swift ZXi. Before I ask him about the missing 5k, I wanted to check here.

Thanks!

Get this product: Swift MGA Camera

It's the same module as ZXi+ and is made to be retrofitted in ZXi.

Ask them to share the month's offer sheet forwarded to them by MSIL monthly. That is the best source for you.

Thanks a lot Shashi! I asked them for the sheet and it shows 10k. However, they bumped up the discount by another 5k and are giving me a 10% off on any accessories I choose.

The VXi comes with a 165/80 R 14 tyres on steel rims. I am looking to upsize this to 185/70 R 14 in a few months after I get my car with the requirements of good grip, excellent mileage and silent running. Dear veteran swift owners and bhpians, any suggestions on what brands I should look at? And since I will be getting this done at a local tyre shop, what cost should I be looking at for the overall thing if I am trading in my stock tyres?

Thanks a lot

Your best bet is going for the change now, you'll get maximum resale for your old tyres. For example, in case of my XL6, I got the OE bridgestones replaced right after delivery and got new Michelins at just Rs. 1500 extra. Got Rs. 4300 per tyre for bridgestones. Or, use the 165/80s for it's full life and then go for the change.

Regards,
Shashi

I got my 2021 Swift ZXI AMT retrofitted with the camera from ZXI plus. It was done through Pratham motors, Bellandur and he changed 6000 for the camera and no extra charge for fitting.

If a dealer has no stock, you could order the same online through MGA website and select which dealer you want to get it fitted from.

Re: Maruti Swift : Official Review

Ever since I had my first service done for my Swift Petrol 2020 model, the performance has been sluggish and the mileage has reduced significantly.

I used to get over 20kmpl on our typical highway runs which has reduced to 15-16 kmpl now. The sluggishness has been increasing with time. I wonder if its the engine oil being used as that was the only component changed during first service and everything else was routine checks. I assume they have a common barrel of oil for all the Maruti cars and even though swift recommends 0w16 they fill a higher grade oil which is common for all cars.

I can't think of any other reason for sluggishness and the low mileage. Has anyone here faced a similar problem after the first service?
