Tread care­fully

Re­port 3 Suzuki Swift Sport

Top Gear (UK) - - GARAGE | AWARDS 2018 - OL­LIE KEW

Lots of folks with the new SSS have been re­port­ing the tyre­pres­sure mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem go­ing hay­wire as win­ter sets in. Cold weather low­ers tyre pres­sure. Most cars com­pen­sate, but the Swift Sport beams an­gry flash­ing lights and a warn­ing mes­sage that Can. Not. Be. Switched. Off. Yes, I con­sulted the hand­book (shame face), which rec­om­mended vis­it­ing a dealer to de­ac­ti­vate the warn­ing, if pump­ing up the tyres failed to. Not sure I’d rec­om­mend it, ac­tu­ally.

Call­ing Heathrow Suzuki got me through to a rude man, telling me to “just keep­ing putting more air in the tyres”. Not sure you un­der­stand how pneu­mat­ics work, mate. Luck­ily for the both of us, the alert has gone of its own ac­cord, and, even bet­ter, the Sport’s steer­ing now feels more alert.
