Many of them have expressed this. My two cents based on the experience with the Fiesta. If the car you drove had Air Bags then the horn needs extra effort.

Ford is one of the worst company when it comes to after sales service.
I will not ask to expect a lot from FORD.

But, as a Ford owner, I can say at least there are not as bad nowadays as you are thinking or saying. My experience till date is very good and they are very professional in their attitude.

Is your some bad experience with FORD that makes you think & speak like that?

In my Fiesta SXI also, initially it was bit hard, but over a period of time and usage, I find it easier now. Another technique is to depress it right at the edges instead of pressing from top, which I find easier and softer

Hi, just to inform you that deliveries have started. However you will be getting your vehicle within 5 days or so. Is your vehicle a petrol or diesel?

I work for ford India & i feel embarrassed to ask this question from all of you as i dont know the answer.

Ques: Why is the diesel figo coming with a RPM display till 7000 RPM?

What I think: It is because of the fact that to keep difeerence in spare parts between the figo diesel & petrol to a bare minimum.


What do you guys think?

For Ford Fiesta Petrol, it is around 9880 (Kolkata price) for 2 year. If they offers the same for Figo, it will be more or less same I think.

I was there at 3 PM, I was visiting some relatives of mine in Pune & was there for 2 days. I decided to check out the nearest dealer ie. Planet ford in kothrud. The short, half bald guy there is a very good sales person. He had a lot of info on the work we have done. there were 3 figo's there

1) Squeeze petrol titanium (stationary)
2) Sea grey diesel titanium (TD vehicle)
3) Diamond White petrol titanium (TD vehicle)

He shares my (quite rare) first name, so it constantly confused me when people kept calling out to him. :P

If I go for the Figo, it would be a tossup between Diamond white and Sea Grey, which looks better in person than on the sample sheets.
