Default just bought swift

Just bought a susuki swift 2007. HPI ok , been serviced since new from susuki garage and same owner from new. All seemed good. Test drove in town and on dual carriage way- however, since driving it home I have noticed the following:-

Its quick to loose speed when you take the foot off the accelerator, almost heavy quick but struggles to then regain speed

It is not good on clutch control- pretty much needs revs to take off from 1st

its super loud on motorway- road noise drowns out radio!

can't seem to handle 80 mph- starts to get swerve and feel unsafe

rear view micro vibrates making view blurry


anyone else have these issues???

I also have a Swift.
* Rides like an Ox Cart, road noise is terrible and and vibrates on rough roads.
* Can't handle wind gusts. (Common to all small Box type cars)
* Electric steering is dead, very little self centre action
* Brakes are 'touchy', over boosted.
* Seats are hard.
* Genuine parts are a ridiculous price i.e. $660+GST for a fuel pump!
* Pig to work on, have to remove a drive shaft to get alternator out. Fuel pump is
inside tank with no drain plug & no access through the floor.

I am now wondering why I own a Swift!
