I only visited Kairali Ford Thrissur, and I too had a pleasant experience. They even let me near my vehicle, where as PVS Ford Calicut, does not allow that and are crap!.

Ah, you are definitely not alone here. Even though a '07 Flair user, I adore the IKON. Especially the 1.6 ROCAM mill. The cars has superbly balanced handling and rear seat comfort.

The IKON is one of the few cars, that you can be chaffuerd in, and when your in the mood, get behind the wheel, throw it around the corners, and revv the nuts out of that mill.

While I agree to most of your observations, but then, have to disagree here, Ikon 1.6 does not really love to be revved as freely as the Fiesta's twin-cam 1.6 motor (which almost revs with japanese eagerness). What impresses in the ROCAM 1.6 is the tremendous throttle response and the low end torque.

I'm happy to see good reviews for Ford A.S.S in Kerala.

I do agree that Ikon is not that rev happy as Fiesta.

umm.. mail4loys, PVS Ford Calicut is absolute crap!.

Kairali Ford, Cochin - Nothing better!.

Kairali Ford, Thrissur, I found it much better than the other ones. Just that.

So 2/3, A.S.S I visited are incompetent, atleast for me.
