My horrifying experience while braking
Look and Style: Reasonably good looks. Comfort: Commendable in its class. Pickup: Descent. Mileage: No complaints, it gives a reasonably good mileage 16-17 kmpl. Needs to improve: Braking and power steering. Overall Experience: I have mixed emotions to share with all of you. I am owning this vehicle for 3 weeks. Overall experience has been good, save for a couple of very close encounters, when I almost drove into a truck from behind and almost drove through a crowd at very low speeds. These issues cropped up on my trip from Kottayam to Thrissur on the State highway. I was driving the car at about 20-25 kmph on a traffic lined road. It was then when the truck in front of me had to stop abruptly to save a pedestrian while crossing. Taken unawares I applied the brakes and the car did not stop as expected and I almost hit the truck from behind. The same evening while I had been driving at about 10-15 kmph on a road when a procession was moving, I had to apply the brakes to make way for the crowd of people to move and my brakes did not budge when I applied them. My heart skipped a couple of beats and I had to pull the handbrakes to bring the car to a halt. I gather that there is some problem with the Power assist while driving at very slow speeds. I talked to the service people and they too opined that even the Ritz too has the same problem. If this is true, I must say that Maruti Engineers should be looking into the issue with great seriousness and find remedial measures immediately. I have done only 1045 kms in my new car and I had in the meanwhile taken the car to the service centre but to no avail. Hope Maruti would be looking into the issue very seriously.'Tony Jacob, Mob:9656304824

I own a Maruti Swift Dzire VXI petrol and having the same problem that brakes suddenly get tight at slow speed after pressing 2-3 times . I went to service centre many times they take test drive and said that it is ok.....this time again when I went to service centre after approx. 2 yaers they told that problem in gas cylinder and need replacement but they are not sure ...............So pls anyone suggest what I have to do and how this problem may get ressolved.

My two cents, I had taken a test drive of Maruti Swift Demo car with mandovi motors Bangalore. This was a petrol vehicle. I faced similar issues related to braking at very low speeds. When I asked the sales guy sitting next to me he said there is no problem and the car is fine. I thought may be I was not driving properly and just ignored it until I read this post.
