1: my turbo sprint can beat mustangs, Mazda 6's, bmw's, benz's, ect on a windy road or off the line
2: the look I get when people see me get out of my car (I'm 6'4" 250lbs)
3: I can fit 2 downhill mountain bikes in the back and travel to whistler and back on $30 gas (3.5 hours one way)
4: its not a Honda
5: when ever I go to the auto parts store everyone that works the counter wishes their parts costed the same
6: BECAUSE RACECAR!

Why I love my Suzuki?
1. It's small size fits well in my street (4 meters 50 cm wide)
2. It's different from FordFocuses, OpelCorsas or VolkswagenGolfes all owned by boy-racers in my hometown
3. (Related to 2) Because I like to see their faces when "an unknown small old car" beats them :mrgreen:
4. I can dismantle most of it if I want with a screwdriver, some wrenchs and a ratchet set
5. Unlike modern cars, it's not full of pain-in-the-ass electronics and computers like an airliner (Just that bitchy open-door beep :-P )
6. It screams like hell at 7500 rpm
7. I fill the tank and lasts all week (I work 5 days a week)
8. And last, but not least: IT'S MINE!

I brought my daughter home from the hospital in it. It was -30 degree, started first kick. It was the same Firefly turbo that my brother brought home my nephew from the hospital! It was -40 degree that day.

Basically that little car saw us through some fun times, and even though we were broke as a joke, driving that car made me feel rich and RIGHTEOUS! :)

I love my Swift because:

1. He's fun and sporty
2. Makes driving so enjoyable I've added it to my hobbies list :D
3. He's got style (just like his owner) :P

So..why i love my GTi...?
1)since i bought it,every time i look it from the front side,it seems so bad and angry!
2)I really like its old school 91 interior,the seats are so beautiful
3)When i pop up the hood,i see this powerful piece of art called G13B
4)When i have 2nd gear and the rev needle reaches 4K rpm i feel the power and i hear the engine screaming,it's a thing that i didn't expected
5)It consumes during a trip less than 6,5 liters of gasoline/100km
6)it's black. i gained at least +7hp :P :P
7)It's my first car

I am pursuing Maruti Swift for the past 5 years and I am very happy with it. It gives you fuel efficiency, it is modern in looks and stylish in designs. It is comfortable and it is ideal for the complete family. It is spacious at the front as well as on the back. It gives you a great driving experience. I really enjoy driving it.

Because it is a car of few compromises (light weight, no AC, no power steering, etc...) that is fast and fun enough to autocross, yet unlike so many competitors (Mazda Miata, for example) I can put all of this crap in the back:

Full set of tires, beach gear (snorkels, wetsuit, life jackets) and cooler for a weekend of fun. And get 35 mpg the whole time (well maybe not at the autocross lot, but the rest of the time).

My first-born son arrived early Tuesday morning, and his first car ride will be in a Swift GT--he's a lucky kid!

My G10 came with hoist brackets :lol: I may mount a suitcase handle on my G10 valve covers for future engine changes. The hoist would weigh more than the engine :D gotta love that 8)

Love? Strong word so I'll go with like a lot.
Love the mpg. Really like that it says TURBO on the sides and people ask if it really has a turbo. Really like that it does have a turbo and scoots along way better than anything else its size especially with a few quick, cheap mods learned from decades of turbo car ownership. Kinda like that it has few siblings running around which makes it rather unique. Love that my 5'8" 175lb ass can lift a rear tire off the ground even with some crap inside the car.
Since this thread is about what we "love" about them I'll just stop there.

why i love my 86 sprint:
cuz ive rescued my 2009 nissna versa 3 times now with my ghetto little car.
cuz i can draft behind a full size pickup and get 70mpg at 80 mph.
cuz the motor is easier to work on than a lawnmower.
cuz 250 miles cost my 20 dollars in gas.
cuz its the most reliable car ive ever owned, including the brand new ones.
cuz IT HAS NO RUST!

Why I love my swift -In 6 months my swift paid for itself in fuel savings over the previous vehicle used in the business for doing daily errands. Not to mention the savings in tyres <$40 each and insurance.

What's no to like , I get 45mpg with my Mk4 1.0 , tires are $38 a piece delivered to my door , other then regular maintenance it asks for nothing and Im just changing first clutch at 200K miles . The most reliable, best designed and cheapest transportation ever produced by anyone, and that stands for every model of 1.0 Swift sold anywhere on planet.

P.S. OEM clutch , machine work on the flywheel , 3 quarts of synchromesh , driveshaft seals less then $150

My first car was a 1990 Geo Metro XFI. I bought it because I knew it could take a beating. My parents had a 89 Geo LSI and drove over 100,000 in less than two years....seriously. In 94 they ran their car to the ground and asked to borrow mine. A few weeks later, they got into an accident due to no fault of their own. Bad day. They were fine...the car was totaled. A few months later, I bought 1994 Suzuki Swift GA with only 600 miles on the odometer.

While in the military, that car went everywhere...Kansas, Ohio, Florida and everywhere between. Even put it on a cargo ship in Charleston, South Carolina where it met me in Germany and traveled with me there for two years.

When I retired in 2011, I drove it to my retirement ceremony so we could celebrate our "retirement" together.

It'll be 20 years in June that I've had the Swift and I still get a kick driving that little five speed stick. :D

i love mine for 3 reasons it was my first reasonable car . I had a camaro and a 1985 ford f150 before that
second the gas mileage is awesome, third i love the little vert with the gti body swap.

Because the morning commute in my '94 GT was 19 miles in 25 minutes, door to door, including 3 stop signs and 3 stoplights, in Washington, DC metro traffic. Woo-hoo!

[quote="elbola"]I think I'm in love with it! no seriously I love my GTI. I think about it all the time and just love to watch it be. No matter how many issues it has, I just can't stop liking this car even more. And yes I have a girlfriend :P .Swifts is all I know and to be honest that's all I need to know. I'll probably have lots of daily drivers, but this little piece of art will always be my first car-love. It's just like the Turbo-sprint guys like to say: "Either you get it or you don't"[/quote]

What he said :lol:

The fuel economy in a metro is way way better than my Honda eater 73 Econoline it even beats my collection of Samurais.

I dont love my 87 Sprint.I'm OBSESSED. I love all the dirty looks and laughs I get when driving or when its just parked looking pretty but little do they know I am the one with the last laugh when I pass the gas station and see them pulling in. My first car was an 86 Sprint which I wrecked. That's really what started my obsession
