2005 Suzuki Swift GLX 1.5 VVT from Jamaica
A more grown up version of an economical and reliable car
The car is brand new, and nothing has gone wrong.
My previous Suzuki Swift gave seven years of trouble-free service. However, it was beginning to show its age, particularly with the lack of creature comforts and safety features. I was delighted when I saw that Suzuki were launching an all-new Swift, and even more delighted with the new car that I have received.
The previous version was reliable and economical, and I trust that this one will be too.
The styling is much better, and the build quality feels more solid. I have already received many positive comments about the car's appearance.
The cabin is spacious, the seats and driving position are comfortable, and the controls are clear and well located.
I chose the 1500VVT engine, which (although I'm still "running it in") feels very lively. Part of the reason for this choice was that it came with 15" wheels (rather than the 13" offered with the 1300cc engine), and these larger wheels help to soak up any road imperfections.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
