Hersch posted a topic in AAA - Ask Autocar AnythingHi Friends! Although I like and own a Swift for its perfect value for money appeal, I do have a question to ask all my fellow mates. This is regarding the new shape Swift and the dents commonly seen on its boot. It so happened that I tried to close the boot of my Swift a couple of days back and incidentally ended up denting the boot sheet metal; the portion of boot above the rear number plate. On closer inspection, I realised that the same is constructed of very thin sheet metal which can easily get dented by simple pressing by bare hands. Since then, I started observing all new shape Swifts on the roads and their boots and found out that quite a few of them had a dent at the same spot. Maybe their owners committed the same mistake that I did. I just saw a straight out of the showroom condition Swift with a similar dent yesterday as well. I am also sure that Maruti service stations must be getting a lot of cars with similarly dented boots. If that is the case, is Maruti proactively taking steps to get rid of the problem by maybe installing an internal reinforcement or by using heavy duty sheet metal. Please share in case you've had a similar experience with a Swift's bootlid. Also, is there anything that can be done to prevent the incident from reoccurring? Are there any materials available in the market which can be glued/ welded to the sheet metal to provide added strength? Thanks!
