Model: Suzuki Swift 1.3

Year:1999

Mileage:78000

MOT:05/12

Owned for the last 4 years and been ever reliable.

Engine

Standard 1.3 engine starts first time every time and runs very smooth and quiet and returns great mpg roughly 150 miles for £20. The engine does not use any water or oil. The car comes with the 5 speed manual gear box which changes as it should. Mileage wise the car has covered 78000 miles.

Bodywork

As you can see from the pictures, the bodywork on the Suzuki Swift is in good condition for its age. As with any 16 year old car there are some marks and some bubbling around the rear arches but nothing too bad. There's a scuff on the front bumper which will come out with a polish and I will attempt to do this if I have time. All in all it's pretty good considering the age of the car. The car comes with 4 alloy wheels which would benefit from a refurb but the tires are all legal.

Interior

The interior is in presentable fettle. There is some wear quite high up on the drivers seat but its very small, one of the arms from the glove box has broken but it closes fine you just have to be careful when opening it and other than that it quite tidy the seats are very comfortable even if the interior pattern is a little 90's wallpapertastic.

Features include:

Electric windows front windows (the drivers side does need a little help going up as its come off the runner something I will try and fix if I have the time), Power Assisted Steering, CD Player with USB port, built in cup holders, split folding rear seats, ABS Brakes.


ICE and Security.

In-dash CD player with USB port, central locking (the car has to be locked and unlocked from the passenger side as someone unsuccessfully tried to break into it so the drivers lock is broken again probably an easy fix)

The car has had a recent radiator, exhaust and break pads and to be honest is a fantastic little run around. With a little imagination I think it could be a cool looking thing but I have another vehicle so its no use to me. Or leave it as it is and have a reliable run around!



Location:Houghton Le Spring, Tyne and Wear

Price:£350 or a bit less with some passat wheels!

In the interest of equilibrium I appreciate that advertising when I haven't been here long is a bit naughty so I'm going to stick a free car in the free bit. Not much of it left but parts may be useful to someone!!

 

The Suzuki is also on eBay if your interested in the thrill of the chase!! Its also £250 to anyone here that wants it!!!

Fab looking cars these, they have aged extremely well as they still look dead modern.

GR12 little cars, these, and there are some switches on that dashboard which are no less pleasant to use than those on a brand new Vitara. PHAQT.

Apparently the problem is that the motors have too much POWAH and bends the mechanism that the glass sits in.

These are gr8 little cars, we had one which had done 200k on that engine and ran beautifully. I assumed it had done near-100k but it had already rolled around the 5-digit odo once!

 

I also had a ton out of it on a private road once. They are remarkably light and aerodynamic things these.

That'll have been a 1.3 then. Official top speed of the 993cc is a measly 90mph.

Only problem with roffling is I don't have a pay pal account? And don't particularly want to set one up to have to wait an age for any money to clear.

Realistically how many people would be interested in a roffel at £4.50 a ticket?
