Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Suzuki Swift hatchback?
Like most Japanese manufacturers, Suzuki has a solid track record for reliability. In both the JD Power Customer Satisfaction Survey and our own Reliability Survey, Suzuki usually manages a mid-table finish or higher.
However, Suzukis have improved in recent years, and the Swift came a long time before this reputation for solidity was achieved. This means that you'll need to buy very carefully when out Swift-shopping.
