Question about 2005 Suzuki Swift
My Swift is full of condensation every day when weather is cold - even if just left for a few hours. No, there is no snow inside and mats not wet - just normal, daily use. Even tried taking mats inside house and completely drying out and have cleaned all windows thoroughly. Have to scrape ice off entire windscreen INSIDE on v. cold days and can only drive with AC on ALL the time. This cannot be right! dealer has had it in and can find no fault. It doesn't appear to happen to all SWIFTS but a small percentage, from what I can gather, have exactly the same problem. It's ridiculous, like driving a vintage car! I will not rest until I get some action from Suzuki but would appreciate your comments/thoughts?

could be a sticking idle air control valve... a little cylinder on the side of your throttle body.. it helps control your idling air fuel ratio.. this goes bad could cause your problems... also easy for you to replace... normally 2 small bolts and a harness.. usually run about 35-85 dollars.. check price and if it's about 35 or so.. i'd go ahead and change it anyways.. 9 years it's probly due.. :D

My 1994 GTi was doing the same thing. The car should idle a bit fast when cold, say 1500rpm, due to the auto-choke. However, 2800rpm is too high. I had a look at my throttle system and could not workout how to adjust the auto-choke idle speed seperate from the normal idle. So I reluctantly had it serviced by the agents, they cleaned out the throttle body and adjusted it. It is better, 1900rpm, but still a bit high for my liking.

SOURCE: Car gear change - Suzuki Swift
I can confirm the fault is with the nylon bush lifting in the gear lever housing at the base of the gear lever. The dealer has yet to replace mine, however I have carried out a very temorary repair by fitting a cable tie around the circumference of the housing. lift the gaitor from around the gear lever to access. I have not had a problem since. This car is a driving school car and obviously does a lot of gear changes. If the parts are changed but no modification is carried out I am sure the fault will re occur,however at least I know the fault and can overcome it.

Scrape....as in chatter across the glass?
Bend the arm to straighten the wiper.
You want a straight up position on each wiper as they sit on the glass.
This allows them to tilt slightly BOTH WAYS as they remove water......on the up stroke and down.

Suzuki thermostats, more often than not, tend to fail OPEN when they have been overheated - which is a good thing! If they failed shut, you would really cook the motor. Change the thermostat. Also, find the cause of the initial lack of coolant.

Better Starting Grip in Icy Conditions.
A special Winter Flex Compound, specially formulated to maintain its grip under the most extreme cold-weather conditions, including snow and ice, to help deliver better starting grip and shorter stopping distances.
Better Traction In All Winter Conditions
Cross Z-Sipes Technology uses a specially designed curve that locks the sipes in place, helping to provide improved grip on snow and ice. And because the sipes are full-depth, their grip lasts winter after winter.
