The key way in the crank of my Swift wore and caused the timing to be out.

The rear wheel cylinders seized up and caused improper braking and quick wearing of the front pads and disc's.

The boot has rotted away and will now not close.

General Comments:

Although I've had a few problems with my Swift, I have spent enough money on it to bring it back to its original condition and spec.

This car happens to be the best car I have owned, for engine power output and vehicle handling.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
