Some answers I got at champion motors yesterday while test driving the Suzuki Swift (non Sport), which is a brilliant car.

1) How heavy is the car ah ?
I think.... 700- 800kg .....

2) The engine is quite smooth. Its a really good drive.
Of course, because the engine got VVT. Last time the ignis got no VVT thats why so noisy.

3) I wanted the swift sports rims, but I noticed that it has 5 lugs versus the 4 lugs on the normal swift. So I asked him, if I can fit the rim onto the normal swift, maybe they have a 4 lug version. He answered.

After u change hor, the normal car will have 5 nuts. (after a while he think). I think cannot la. (at leasssst, he corrects himself).

4) Your own suzuki swift, does it rattle after 2 years ownership ?

Yes. But can be fixed one la.

5) Should I buy the swift sport over the normal one.

No. The engine after that u can take go and Znnnnng. The car will fly after that one.

6) At 100kph, what is the RPM?
4000 plus rpm.

7) The car rides and handles quite well.

Of course, the car got torsion beam suspension mah.



Steady. man.

U know what?

I don't own a car, and my technical knowledge of cars is limited but this is one salesman that I reckon would be better off working as a Computer Salesman at Electronics Supermarts den at Suzuki.... :(

P/S: Any car owners who walked into a showroom with nothing more than Slippers, Bermudas and Singlet and bought his car with excellent service? I'd always wanted to try it out. ;p

You need a lot of passions being a car salesman.....technical stuffs and experience can be gained over the years but not the attitute and interest......can you imagine he has to serve dozens of customer day in day out probably 6 to 7 days a week....more so in super buzy weekend which most of us rather spending the quality time with family.....not very easy to stay cool all the time :thumbsup: ......I guess you must have placed downlpayment because of that :lovegrin:

The best salesmen/women end up at the 'golden' spots: Performance Motors (BMW), Borneo Motors (Toyota) and Tan Chong (Nissan). Its damned hard to get into these companies as sales ppl, but once you're in, the $$ is :bigeyes: So you tend to find the really good and knowledgeble sales ppl at the top companies. My agent just moved from Tan Chong to Borneo Motors, and he's pretty good... hmmm, maybe my next purchase will be a Toyota? :D

I think some are missing the point completely!!

Some answers I got at champion motors yesterday while test driving the Suzuki Swift (non Sport), which is a brilliant car.

1) How heavy is the car ah ?
I think.... 700- 800kg .....

The real weight is abt 1000-1100kg

2) The engine is quite smooth. Its a really good drive.
Of course, because the engine got VVT. Last time the ignis got no VVT thats why so noisy.

Variable Valve Timing does not contribute to the smoothness of an engine. It just makes it more efficient. Probably the Swift has very good sound insulation.

3) I wanted the swift sports rims, but I noticed that it has 5 lugs versus the 4 lugs on the normal swift. So I asked him, if I can fit the rim onto the normal swift, maybe they have a 4 lug version. He answered.

After u change hor, the normal car will have 5 nuts. (after a while he think). I think cannot la. (at leasssst, he corrects himself).

There is no way you can fit a 5 nut rim onto a 4 nut hub carrier. The pattern does not fit.

4) Your own suzuki swift, does it rattle after 2 years ownership ?

Yes. But can be fixed one la.

He is very honest here, no doubts. But who would admit that a product rattles after 2 years if u r selling one.

5) Should I buy the swift sport over the normal one.

No. The engine after that u can take go and Znnnnng. The car will fly after that one.

I dont really think so.

6) At 100kph, what is the RPM?
4000 plus rpm.

The real answer, I'm not sure, would be abt 2500-3000 rpm.

7) The car rides and handles quite well.

Of course, the car got torsion beam suspension mah.

Usually double wishbone suspension is regarded as the best for ride/handling mix. Found in Honda cars.



Steady. man.

ya lor...

if u say about some camera shop sales man... then another story liao...

1) How heavy is the camera ah ?
I think.... 700- 800gram .....

2) The shutter is quite smooth. Its a really good sound.
Of course, because the shutter got new state-of-the-art lubricant. Last time the old model got no oil thats why so noisy.

3) I wanted the canon lens, but I noticed that it has nikon mount on tis camera versus the normal EF mount on canon. So I asked him, if I can fit the canon lens onto the nikon, maybe they have a same mount. He answered.

After u change hor, the camera will go well with peanuts. (after a while he think). I think cannot la. (at leasssst, he corrects himself).

4) Your own camera, does it rattle after 2 years ownership ?

Yes. But can be fixed by yourself one la.

5) Should I buy the local 1 over the grey one.

No. The warranty after that u can take go and Znnnnng. The warranty will fly after that one. i mean u can fly anywhere with the warranty.

6) At 1/1000s, what is the FPS?
4000 plus FPS. :bigeyes: :bsmilie:

7) The camera grip and handles quite well.

Of course, the camera got anti shake and battery grip mah. besides that, you are gripping on my hand...

I have not met one Singaporean car salesperson who can talk in depth about car mechanics or have any real interest in cars. It's always about how much commission they can make from the sale.

well, they're into it cos of the $$ mostly, whois really keen about sedans and family saloons? A car fanatic would usually prefer to sell high end sports car..

for a salesperson, at the end of the day, they need to feed themselves. They need to sell a few cars a month to earn a decent living.

1) How heavy is the car ah ?

Probably closer to 1000-1100kg. But that's something that you can find in the brochure.

2) The engine is quite smooth. Its a really good drive.
Of course, because the engine got VVT. Last time the ignis got no VVT thats why so noisy.
Didn't know Variable Valve Timing enhanced engine smoothness. That's news to me.

3) I wanted the swift sports rims, but I noticed that it has 5 lugs versus the 4 lugs on the normal swift. So I asked him, if I can fit the rim onto the normal swift, maybe they have a 4 lug version. He answered.

After u change hor, the normal car will have 5 nuts. (after a while he think). I think cannot la. (at leasssst, he corrects himself).
You're testing him!!!! :sweatsm:

4) Your own suzuki swift, does it rattle after 2 years ownership ?

Yes. But can be fixed one la.
Rattles are part of the Suzuki experience. :sticktong

5) Should I buy the swift sport over the normal one.

No. The engine after that u can take go and Znnnnng. The car will fly after that one.
I heard that Garage R did up a normal Swift and it does the rounds of Pasir Gudang and Sepang. Swifts I've seen so far look and sound fairly tame.

6) At 100kph, what is the RPM?
4000 plus rpm.
You wouldn't like the highway fuel consumption. The Swift Sport seems to have lower gearing that the Swift, which gives punchy performance but sacrifices top speed. I am however surprised if it does turn 4k plus at 100kph. I would have though 3.5k is more normal.

7) The car rides and handles quite well.

Of course, the car got torsion beam suspension mah.

Steady. man.

Not true, most are sales women, sex sells when it comes to frontline service, everthing else is secondary.
