abhibh there nothing wrong with the handling. I would say it handles perfectly well. Its just that they have compromised too much on ride comfort inorder to give this good handling. Anyways its personal choice. Some might give more importance to handling and others to ride comfort.

VAnchi. All the Best and Drive SAfe. Its a real good vehicle. The Diesel heart would give you much more savings on fuel too.

Vabs. Thanks. Its long overdue. I know that. But not getting time.

Default Service Update

Just thought i would add this too. THe Service really sucks (in capitals). Its ok for the normal scheduled services. But if you have something out of schedule, if you just want something to be checked....they just dont care. I have mentioned this earlier on other threads but just thought i'll put it up here too. If your priority is a customer friendly service. I suggest you stay away from FORD (Atleast in KErala) They are a bunch of arrogant people who show their monopolistic advantage to you.

And if at all you fall into trouble...you are doomed!!!!!!!!

These are just a few examples of the arrogance these people show to customers.

Just came back from the 20K service (The car has done only 13K). Had to change rear shock absorber assembly. Cost around 3.8K. But this time its under warranty. But not sure why something like a shock absorber would give up at just 13K.

was just wondering. Is there anyway that i can make some changes to make the ride little more soft. What all would have to be changed and how much would it cost.

Not sure if it would affect anything else. PLease advice.

Why don't you change the tyres to something like Michelin Energys?
That should help and is the simplest solution if you aren't too keen on changing the suspension.
