Hello All,

I have planned to go for a Swift VDI, but some says that it is a new engine and it is just 1.5 years old, so we will get to know the real face of diesel engine after 3 years. Is this a fact? I know that Swift has a CRDi technology and it is a 3rd generation engine. but still would like to know from experienced people like you. The reason for me to ask this question is, I am serioulsy planning to hold the Swift Diesel engine car for 5 years. Please advise.

Thanks & regards.

hello dp, a topic about swift already exists, u might get lot of information reading that.

swift has an excellent engine & has won the best engine of the year award in europe.  customers have driven it in excess of 1lakh kms. without problems.

so, it should give you a pleasurable experience for 5 or more yrs.

@DP

i have a VDi , from more than a year and it still runs like a gem and gives excellent fuel economy and as such this engine is already tested and in europe if i am not mistaken the Palio diesel runs with  the same engine and for more than 3 years or so!

the Engine is brilliant and much superior to that of tatas , if tatas have managed 3 - 5 years then imagine how would this engine be ? its not just CRDi , its got the Turbo chrager multijet direct injection with CRdi , hence you get superior milage , pick up and decent performance! i hope your prob is solved and willl be waiitng to see your VDi soon!

Cheers!

The Swift with the Fiat 1.3 multijet beats the competition in most respects. I have driven the VDi a lot. Its a fantastic car.Its reliable and the car can surely give you five years of excellent company.  In fact one does not get the feel that he is driving a diesel car till he goes to the petrol pump to get a fill.

Hi All... I got my new SWIFT VDI - Sunlight copper. I booked on July 03, and got it delivered on July 30. Initially they told I need to wait for 1.5 months minimum, but to my surprise I got it within less than a month. Thanks a lot to all.

Congratulations, on your wonderful buy. So, the advise worked.

Do share your experiences with the car.

I am also contemplating buying one & good that waiting period has reduced.
