Maruti Suzuki Swift hatchback to get better braking system


Maruti Suzuki Swift hatchback is in for a revamp where their braking system is concerned. Maruti Suzuki India Limited have announced that the software on its Swift hatchback will be looked into following several complaints from buyers of soft braking at low speeds which is hampering performance. Though the company has not yet issued any recall statement nor have they informed any customers, they are looking into whether this could lead to safety hazards on the road.

There are about 2.5 lakh new Swift hatchbacks on Indian roads ever since they were launched in August 2011.The next generation Swift cars were looked upon as high performance vehicles but soon complaints started pouring in which has led to constraints in braking at speeds of between 10 to 15 kmph.

This causes the brake pedals to tighten and makes braking more difficult for driver who immediately senses loss of braking performance. Swift hatchback was in the news earlier this year when Suzuki Motor Corp had to recall over 1.09 lakh Swift hatchbacks produced between September 2010 and April 2012, following complaints of petrol leakage.
