I am still not getting a positive confirmation from Lathangi Ford, Bangalore on delivery. I booked it on 6 March, initial promise was 20 Mar, now they talk of 27 Mar...As per Mustang's advice, I contacted Ford customer service this morning and they have taken my details and promised to follow up. Don't know whether I will get any reply from them. 32 cars delivered on a single day in Cochin, I wonder what the Bangalore dealers are doing. They have a strong case to get priority as the 1 Apr hike of VAT and road tax is not a problem for other states.

Sorry. I resolved Insurance problem . I mailed Bajaj Allianz HO and got direct quote . ( direct.telesales at bajajallianz.co.in) . They responded within 3 hours and they gave me 40% discount on Basic own damage premium ( No, it is not no claim bonus) . Rest are tariff based, so Public Liability premium is standard. Quote was as follows:

Vehicle IDV Rs. 546,377 ( Ex-showroom Price : 555,624 - Diesel Titanium -Mumbai)

Basic own damage : Rs. 17937 less 40 % = Rs. 10763
Public Liability = 900 + 250 (PA unnamed) + 25 (LL to employee)

Final premium (incl. S. tax) = 13168 as aginst dealer quote of Rs. 20245 saving of Rs. 7000 ( I can pay premium by card and get some points too)

They told me to inform them Engine no. and Vehicle no. to before issuing the policy.

Other guys like Chola too may give competitive offers. But I have good experience with Bajaj so am happy.

I think this is a fair deal. I got a quote of 12781 from Chola for Diesel Titanium. Ex Showroom price of 529900 in Bangalore. Nearly 8K less than what dealer offered. If not for Team-BHP, I would have never known such things...Information is power indeed !

Unfortunately, most of the customers are gullible and dealers and agents make a killing with inflated insurance charges for new cars.

The dealers are stocking on the figo and waiting until 1st April so that they can bill us on the new price while they picked up the cars on the old?

Any car booked after the 17th of March is subject to the new prices.
Thats what the Hyundai Advert mentioned.

I dont think Ford wants a conspiracy.

My theory is that, Bosch and some other suppliers are on a strike causing components delays. This reflects in the delivery dates.

Besides, the 2% excise hike goes to the Government.

@hemant - did you read the thread on Automotive Insurance. Did you get an excess? I'm not familiar with the terminology.

I had same policy for previous car, where compulsory excess was Rs. 500. Since no excess is mentioned, default excess is probably same i.e. Rs. 500.

Is figo going delayed like swift? Its almost one month delayed for you.

Is it because of too many bookings or lack of production/delivery by ford?

There is an ebony dash?

I thought only black and coral red were on offer! Do you have pics of how it looks?

Also does anyone have pics of a panther black figo? I'd like to see how it looks

As per the first set of on road prices from MPL ford Chennai (pl refer to pg 45 of this thread), insurance works to Rs 19.5k on a Titanium Diesal. However, the latest quotation obtained from them pegs insurance at 15.8 k. Point to note here is the On road price has increased by Rs 700.

The dealer is adding something called "Essential pack" worth 4.5k. This would include mud flaps etc. This was promised even when the first set of prices came out (for free).

What should be done to negotiate with the dealer??

Is the 15.8K on diesel? Damn I missed that point. Very valid point. I need to check that with the dealer. Because the MPL Quote from the Ford Internal email pegs the Titanium Insurance at 15879.

Essential Pack consists of 3M Exterior Paint protection which you can decline.

Let me reproduce the internal email sent.

Thanks Hemant - I'm going to call Bajaj tomorrow. And ask my dealer to chuck the In-house Insurance out of the option.

The advert was an old one in the Deccan Chronicle. Chennai Ad.

If this is the way they are going to behave during booking/delivery ,then the A.S.S is going to be a nightmare .
By tommorow(March 23rd) we will get the latest update about delivery.If it is not satisfactory we will be going the VW Polo way.
