He Showroom (RKS Saboo - Somajiguda) filled 45 Psi air in the tyres, something I could not believe. The first day Auto driver rammed into the back bumper at the left rear side and it crushed. I had to go to the local mechanic, heat it up and bring out the bumper to get it into shape. The brakes were not falling as expected. I thought because of ABS the car was behaving like that. Third day, I met with another accident. Xylo in front and Qualis at the back. Front and back bumper damaged completely - unrecognizable. After the repair work at Varun Motors, Nanakramguda. They could not align the back left side of the bumper properly in shape.


I made the air pressure from 45 in cold condition in all five tyres to 38 in front and 34 at the back. The braks started working excellently.


Time came for the first service at 1000 kms. The service advisor said it will be good if a pollen air filter is fixed. I got that fixed. The car a/c was not effective. I later checked it and the filter was fixed upside down and added to that it was a used dirty filter. The air filter was also replaced as the manufacturing date did not match the date of other parts that were assembled. The mileage was poor. I bought the pollen and air filter separately outside from genuine Maruti authorized parts seller. The car mileage returned and the a/c is very effective now.


The car temperature was fraction over the half way mark on the hotter side. I got the oil filter and oil change done at 5000 Kms though maruti says 10000 kms. After the oil change the engine temperature is about the half way mark, no matter how long I drive it. FIAT gave clear instructions to maruti that only "fully synthetic engine oils should be used in the engine". But the service center put semi synthetic Castrol magnatec oil.


IMP: The grade of oil has changed from 5W40 to 5W30 in the 2015 Swift. The service center manager said he will put only 5w40 though 5w30 is instructed in the manual. I went to corporate office in himayatnagar Stanza building and got approval that 5W30 can be put in the engine.


TIP: Please make sure when oil change, they use 5W30 fully synthetic oil. The brands that are approved by maruti are (Total, Shell, Castrol, and Mobil 1) please buy cans of 3.1 liters and ask them to replace the oil. If the dealership service centers refuse to do it. Then you can go to MASS (maruti authorized service station) they will for sure do it. Please get the oil change done in front of you (never trust a professional mechanic to do the job for you). Engine oil is like blood in the Human body.


TIP: Never fill more air than required in the tyre. Please check that especially if you are picking it up as a brand new car from the showroom.


Areas of improvement As mentioned earlier, maruti has to pick-up and give some quality like the German/American car companies on the exterior and in the interior as well. The overall quality of the fit and finish in the Spark is better than the Swift.
