Re: The paint work on my 2009 Swift

i also have seen a few paint problems in my time at a dealer, and from my experience, the dealer is spot on. Any dealer who sells you a paint protection package is certainly not spot on. This is why dealers cannot be trusted, hence, why people fight them. Personally, I would get a few expert opinio...

Re: Wheel alignment problems?

Doesn't sound like a wheel aligenment problem to me. A bad wheel aligenment will be naticable at lower speeds as well and will not suddenly make you're car mis-handle at higher speeds. Like greenzook89, take it to a suspension expert and have them look at it.

The choice of tyre will greatly effect the way the car will handle. Don't expect any 17" or 18" tyre to perform the same as they don't! So invest in some quality rubber if you wish for the car to grip well like the bridgestones which come with the swift. When upgrading to a lower profile, ...
