Suzuki Alto 2015 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Suzuki Alto here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Is it possible to 'plug and play' ECUs in a 2011 Suzuki Alto?
The description `plug and play’ is used to describe a replacement ECU which is designed to simply plug into the car and immediately offer full functionality without requiring additional coding or set-up. That’s why they include things such as ignition keys and sensors; it’s to avoid having to code your existing components to the new ECU. You simply replace the lot and – hopefully – turn the key and enjoy.
So, yes, it’s possible, but you need to make sure you’re getting every component necessary for the swap and that the unit is correct for your car in every detail. The are detail differences between the ECU for a car with an automatic transmission and the same car with a manual, for instance. And always buy from a known source so you can get tech support if it doesn’t all go exactly to plan. Buying from an online clearing house is unlikely to provide the same level of after-sales service.Show more
Best second-hand city runaround?
I wouldn't consider any of the European brands, they're too expensive and cost too much to run. That rules out the Up. Asian brands, particularly the better-known and well-respected Japanese brands are a much better bet, which rules in the Echo. The Asian brands tend to be more reliable and cost much less to run. Another to look at in your situation is the Suzuki Alto.Show more
Alto suitable for freeway?
The Alto generally has a surprising amount of punch and should be fine for driving on the freeway, but if you're concerned about it you should test-drive one and decide for yourself if it has the power you need for the sort of driving you do.Show more
Suzuki Alto fuel consumption
The fuel Suzuki recommends is Premium, or a minimum of 95 octane, which means it's been tuned for that fuel and that's the one you should use to get the best out of it.Show more
