I looked at a 92 swift GT asking price 2800 cdn $ ,I was just working out puchase deal( about a week ) when the clutch went and the drivers seat broke through the floor !I could've been the proud owner of that baby !! I bought a 93 swift 3cyl very nice 1 owner,1200 cdn ,and 3 weeks later had a deer run into the side of me , both cars are now fixed but still wish I had bought th GT !! 4000 sounds a little high but like I said you will be the driver or the repairer !!! ya pays yer money and ya takes yer chances !! Ian in New Brunswick <br> By the way ,were you live also affects the cars condition lots of road salt here, I would not purchase one with ANY rocker panel rust below and behind doors and check frame behind and below engine (just look over the back of the motor),and strut towers in engine compartment for rust,very very little is acceptible Lower ball joints can be very expensive 250$ because the whole Aframe has to be replaced,a new turbo is expensive too as they cant be fixed, And now ya know what I think eh! if I can be of any help just ask ! <p></p><i></i>

I saw a gt on Auto trader yesterday. It's in Ontario. The guy is asking 5000$ but it nevr drove it on winter and really look like new. as far as I can tell, it's a good investment, cars like this one are almost extinct.<br><br>Jar <p></p><i></i>

sounds like a reasonable price. with rims, and speakers and news shape. Better then you spend 2500 to buy a O.K condition then put another 1500 to make it look nice.<br> <p></p><i></i>

I don't think $4000 is out of line. If it's solid then good deal! Check the car out thoroughly for rust. I would even go so far as to remove the front plastic fender liners and the side skirts to check for rust. It sounds like a good deal. Better to pay more for a good example than pay less and have problems down the road. Why did the tranny need replacing? If it's in good shape then go for it - I paid $4000 for a '91 recently in as-new original condition. <p></p><i></i>

Hi People , <br> I have a 93 n/a swift .Its in nice shape, wish I had bought the GT model ,but my big concern was fuel economy, and a youngster learning to drive ,with no other interest that going from A to B , he would rather ride his bicycle (go figure) and the fact I have lots of parts for the 3 cylinder models and the GT was 4cyl. Have fun !! Ian <p></p><i></i>
