Full Review

I bought my first car Maruti Suzuki Swift ZXI last year in Jan 2014. Within a span of one year I have faced multiple problems with the car.

During the first couple of months the sliding mechanism for the front driver seat broke and was repaired and then in the month of Feb 2014 they recalled my car to replace a faulty fuel pipe/cap which could have led to fuel leakage.

I have been driving cars for more than 7 years and I rarely drive rashly. Over bad roads I make sure I slow down the car and drive carefully.

After 8 months past I started noticing cracking sounds coming from the rear while I take turns or drive over bumps. So I decided to get the car checked with “Mandovi Motors” Service Bangalore. After a few minutes of investigation they came back and told that my car’s rear axle is broken and they will need to replace it. Luckily this happened while my warranty was valid and they told my warranty would cover it.

I have started to regret the decision of buying this car. The built quality is very poor and being a Japanese designed car I thought it would be reliable as well. I am not sure whether Suzuki offers the same pitiable products elsewhere around the globe but my experience is very disappointing.
