Default 2017 GLX Turbo...3 Cylinder, 1.0 Litre....Auto Trans

Hi everyone.
Just bought the new Swift GLX Turbo.
Automatic Transmission.
So far it's only got 3,000 km on the clock.
It seems to idle pretty rough.

Is this turbo related?

There isn't any excess vibration, it just sounds rough.
A bit noisier than I would normally expect.

Has anyone else bought the GLX Turbo?
What's peoples opinions?

Hey Daniel, I've just bought a GLX Turbo and recently drove from Mel. to Sydney.
Because I am a bit of a recycled teenager, I have already put on a twin exhaust system and it now sounds like a V8! Will be taking it back to reduce the drone in the cab as on long trips it did get a bit much. I did find it down on power when coming to inclines but this could be due to me not ever driving a small auto before, and maybe I needed to give it some more wellie. I must admit that when I started to use the paddles like a manual, it did seem to perform better. So far it seems like a decent package for the price, maybe if I can find the software to chip the motor this could give me that extra umph!
Cheers Dave

Hi Dave.

I also am not used to a small auto, and I find it hard to get used to having to really put your foot down to throw it back a gear, as opposed to pressing the clutch in a manual, changing gear, and getting the more responsive high revs straight away.

I might try using the paddles a bit more, this might require me to read the user manual though (which I havent touched).

The cabin noise is quite high, but I assume this is because of the overall lightness of the vehicle.

The twin exhaust sounds interesting, I applaude you on that, and should really look into it myself.

I run the aircon all the time, but the cooling of the engine at idle, it sounds very clicky everytime the engine cooling starts and stops.

I have a 2015 1.4 litre manual, so a different beast, but a couple of things may correlate.
Regards road noise, very noisy to me, I have dynomatted (chinese ping jing) https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/282473709103 the boot/rear up to the rear foot well, half of the rear hatch (ran out) plus the front passenger door, I need to do the other doors and main floorpan and front wall. I think it has made an improvement, but I didn't do any sound readings, so could be "seat of pants" feeling/sounding! I expect the other doors alone would also help. I think some mat plus foam up the front may be better, but it will be a while before I pull this apart again...., it started with me fitting the reverse camera.
Aircon, the aircon cycles on/off a lot while idling, I think it probably uses a thermo sensor in the evaporator itself, but could also be short cycling on high pressure cutout due to lower air flow at idle without the car moving, I haven't checked, yes it seems excessive. To check, open windows and turn fan up full and set on fresh air and time the on/off, if the ON time extends, then it's most likely cycling on the evap thermostat.

Hi Daniel, nice to here from someone else with the GLX Turbo. Have put a couple of pics in the gallery, see what you think. So far everything honky dory. I don't have noise issues in the cab because I can't hear anything above the exhaust! Trying to find a tuning chip for that low to mid range power.
