Carsguide Contributing Journalist Andrew Chesterton had this to say at the time: Cheap and cheerful, sure, but how cheap or how cheerful depends on which trim level you opt for.

Suzuki Swift 2017 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Suzuki Swift here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Why does my 2012 Suzuki Swift struggle going up hills?

    This model Swift was recalled to check and tighten, if necessary, the bolts that connect the torque converter to the car’s engine. However, if these were to fail or fall out (as happened in some cases) it would be a one-off event and the car then wouldn’t work at all.

    Your problem sounds more like a worn transmission which is not accepting the load you put on it when you try to accelerate. This could be worn bands or some other component inside the transmission. CVTs are pretty complex things and rely on physical parts like bands and pulleys as well as hydraulic bits and pieces to take drive to the wheels. It would also be worth checking the torque converter, as a damaged or worn unit can also produce the symptoms you’re seeing. I’d start with checking that the recall was carried out and work backwards from there.

  • Why has my 2009 Suzuki Swift lost power?

    Modern engines like the Suzuki’s use literally dozens of sensors to keep the engine’s computer informed on the operating temperature, quality of the fuel, coolant temperature, ambient temperature, camshaft position and lots, lots more. If just one of those sensors starts to offer up false or misleading information to the computer, the whole operation of running the engine can be compromised. That’s when you’ll get rough running and/or stalling as well as the excessive fuel consumption you’ve noted.

    Rather than starting to change sensors on an ad hoc basis (which could take weeks and hundreds of dollars, and even then not arrive at a solution) the best advice is to have the car electronically scanned. At that point, the car’s computer is a good chance to tell the interrogating computer what ails it, and then you can zero in on that component and replace only the parts that are the problem.

  • Suzuki Swift Bluetooth: How to Use Bluetooth in a Suzuki Swift?

    To connect your mobile phone to the Suzuki Swift’s Bluetooth, you must have the vehicle stationary and your phone’s Bluetooth switched on and set to Discoverable. The next step is to press the Setup button on the car’s media-control panel. The setup menu will be displayed and you can then turn the Tune knob to select Setup and then press the same knob to confirm that selection. Turn the Tune knob again to select Pairing and press the knob to confirm that selection.

    Select Car Audio from your phone’s menu and that should establish the pairing. Enter the passkey code displayed on the screen to your phone to confirm the pairing. Then press the On Hook and you’re good to go.

    For more instructions on how to play music through the system, more setup options, and troubleshooting problems, refer to the vehicle’s owner’s manual.

  • What car should I buy to replace my 2006 Toyota Corolla?

    There are still plenty of great small cars around within your budget, Agnes, and they all have good safety packages (or we wouldn’t recommend them). Look at offerings such as the Suzuki Swift Navigator (with the optional autonomous emergency braking) for around $17,000 (plus on-road costs) or the Kia Rio S at around $19,000 or Kia Picanto S (one size smaller than the Rio) at closer to $16,000. Both the Kias also feature the brand’s excellent seven-year warranty, capped-price servicing and free roadside assistance which is great peace of mind.

    The Volkswagen Polo is a classy drive but a little more expensive at closer to $21,000 for the 85TSi Comfortline. Actually, to be honest, you’ve missed the boat on bargain small cars by a couple of years. Firm favourites such as the Toyota Yaris and Mazda 2 have both been updated relatively recently and have recorded big price jumps in the process. The cheapest Yaris with an automatic transmission is now around $23,000 (it was less than $17,000 back in 2018) while the Mazda 2 Maxx went from being a sub-$17,000 proposition in 2018 to a $23,000 car by the time you add an automatic transmission in 2020.
