2000 Suzuki Swift 1.0 3 cylinder


Makes a good shed with its hatchback and fold-down seats


Drains batteries alarmingly.

Brake pedal very soft.

Exhaust has fallen off.

Bonnet release cable broke.

Engine leaking oil.

Gearbox rattles (lay shaft).

General Comments:

Well I use it as a shed now - everyone should do this - why buy a shed when you can have a shed which has wheels on that you can move around when you need it to. It's a horror of a car, and I would pity anyone who thinks driving enjoyment could be gauged by using one of these - someone actually gave it to me when they moved to Tenerife and I can never say no to something free. I've used this car to move a sofa to the bins (on the roof) and I now store my Christmas tree and decorations, as well as various plant pots and a lawnmower in the back. As long as it remains dry and waterproof at the end of my driveway, I will keep it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Apparently the zoning laws in your village are liberal to non-existent?

And a junk car must be super reliable, as all it has to do is sit there, hence the 9/10 rating?
