  • Swift maintenence cost is very expensive.diesel.minimum is Rs 5000 and is some months it is around Rs 10000. Service for 40k and 80k and 120000km is the most expensive ones. Better go for Toyota or Honda.

  • Honda Amaze is one of the lowest maintaince car if u do the regular servicing on time.
    No issues regarding coolent,oil filter etc.

  • I own a swift diesel. From 2nd year or 20000 kms the service cost was never less than 7000. Engine oil itself costs more than 3500 since they are using synthetic oils instead of the mineral oil which they once used. Labour charge is a min rs.1600. It varies based on the service like 2nd,3rd etc.

    • I too have the similare experience with my swift. Even after using normal engine oil, they make sure that I pay more than 7k. There is always an extra line item called miscellaneous, neither they nor me know what all are included in it. On top of all these they compel me to buy windscreen washer and perfume everytime. But they would not have cleaned the windscreen washer nozzle.
      Swift is no more a pocket friendly vehicle..
