I love my Sprint because...

Extremely good on gas!

4 Doors of fury ( more doors then cylinders what's up)

One car i can drive the heck out of...raceing corvettes or hitting mudholes.. and at the end of it all i still have my faded red, oil burning sprint that won't let me down!!!

It fits on the sidewalk very nicely when trying to make a right turn with about 20 cars in front of you haha you might be a redneck...yea it's true.

It's a manual of course

and i only paid $150 for it!

My 1994 Swift is similar to another post where it's fairly quick, handles pretty good, great on gas, loaded(GT model), and the best part of it was it's price FREE

Man I'll say that again because it was FREE

I love my Swift because:

1. Good looking
2. Best car I've ever had
3. Cheap to drive
4. I love the sound of her 3 cylinders
5. Lightweight, so easy to throw around
6. 1+2+3+4+5= So much fun to drive :D !!

I have my Swift for 3 years now, and that's the longest I had a car ever. The only problems I ever had were a broken timing belt, and a broken alternator. The timing belt was my own fault, I should have replaced it sooner. I don't think I will ever buy another car. If I do, it will be a Swift 1.0.

PS:
7. I love the way she looks at sunset 8)

How do I love my Suzi? Let me count the ways...

She's light & ferocious.
She's *relatively* easy to work on.
She took me to my first autocross.
She can out brake anything else I've ridden in or driven in.
She sticks around corners like stink.

But best of all, she's so damn beautiful, especially in the waning hours of daylight.

Ahh Suzi of mine, shall I compare thee to a Civic Type R ? Though art lighter, and less portly.

-J

Your car reminds me of jesus<3

I love the swift because
1. Its great on gas
2. It has alot of pep(4 cyl gl)
3. Handles pretty good(almost as good as my Datsun 510's do)
4. Parts are cheap,Easy to work on..
5. Sure makes a great little commuter car..

I too would like to get the GTI I have looked off and on for a couple years(Usually over priced ,or beat to??)

Well I've posted everywhere else but here.

The main reason is that everyone laughs until they see my tailights in front of them. Having owned both the GA and the GTi I have to say that both have their own fine qualities, but hands down there is no experience like the GT/GTi. I think I can say that almost as an expert, having graduated from the California Highway Patrols EVOC (emergency vehicle operators course) where we drove the 5.0 LX mustang and the 4.6 Crown Vic.

I have owned the Euro 1989 Ford Escort GT; 1971 Opel GT; 1976 Honda CVCC; 1984 SVO Mustang (turbo 2.3 4cyl); 1986 Mazda 2.0 SI Turbo; 1985 BMW 320I; 1986 BMW 325es; 2004 Ford Focus SVT.

As you see these cars have all been on the "must have" list at one time or another, but the Suzuki has been missed. That is what makes this car so special. Nobody takes us serious until they see a swifter pass them as they are still revving up. :lol: 8)

I'm on holiday in the south of France now (Vaucluse), with my Swift, and all I can say is: PARADISE! I've been racing around on the curvy mountain roads here, and have left many significantly faster cars (Audi's, BMW's, Mercedeses etc., d@mn tourists :lol: ) behind, and I just cant stop smiling. 8) I will certainly go back here next year 8)
