No info on Ecoboost or AT.

Good that you choose the Titanium variant (Covers all the basic safety requirements). Budget permitting and if your booking queue won't be disturbed/altered, maybe you can ask your dealership to upgrade you to Titanium (O). It will give them more profit so it shouldn't hurt them.

30,000 bookings in 17days!! Since the current capacity is around 6000 ecosports per month, it will take minimum 5-6 months for delivery.

A common question if you guys don't mind. What is the current waiting period for the EcoSport in your respective town (s) or city (es)?

This is the delivery time being quoted by Metro Ford for all Ford cars in Bangalore.

Metro Ford I think quotes the highest waiting period in the entire country. Even from the day the bookings started their waiting period was higher than what others were quoting

360 days of waiting, hope by then a facelift does not turn up.

I think the waiting period is considerably more in the metros. Back home in Guwahati, we booked a Ecoboost Titanium (Sea Grey) on 27th June and the car reached the showroom on 16th July. This will be the third turbo petrol in the family after the TSi brothers, I will put up my driving impressions with respect to the TSi's soon.

I happened to book a diamond white diesel ecosport of titanium (o) variant on 27 June at Metro Ford Bangalore. I was allotted a priority number of 153 When I inquired them about delivery today, the SA gave an estimate of 9 months He claims they have so far delivered only 9 ecosports!

I had great expectations from this car. Waited anxiously for the launch. But all my enthusiasm has evaporated. I dropped in 3 times to enquire about AT and uncertain and vague replies have put paid to my desire for this car.

Remeber that Titanic movie scene where a woman says to he child, " when they are done rescuing first class and second class passnegers, then they will attend to steerage passengers." Similarly, when Ford is done attending to Diesel and Ecoboost customers, it will turn its attention to AT buyers.

I Strongly suggest that you send a mail as well about RIDDHI FORD so that the matter is taken up strongly. Email id is : custmail@ford.com (Ford India) and asm@riddhiford.in (Mr.Nitin Kalra - Asst Manager Riddhi Ford)
Following your advise, I got in touch with my SA. He told me no booking numbers are being allotted but when I told him one of my friends got his then he told that it must be the 'File Number'. So my File number is 426 and even today estimated delivery time is 3 months, further adding that only a handful of deliveries have been made, to say about 12.

Anyhow, my SA says that we'll deliver at the earliest and I'm genuinely hopeful for the same since I feel that they're deliberately giving a longer waiting period to be on the safer side.

But one issue which I'm concerned about is the Capacity of Post-Sales Service. Considering the popularity of the car and the sales volume, the current setup in my limited knowledge should've issues catering to the enhanced number of Fords on the road.

In South Delhi, I only know of Riddhi Ford & Harpreet Ford Service in Okhla and Delhi Ford in Vasant Kunj.

Not so easy. Even for diesels, first they attend to the black marketeers, then those who pay them a 1L premium and then to those who are willing to buy their overpriced accessories. The others can possibly forget about the car. Hopeless situation.

I strongly disagree this statement Ford dealers wont get into such cheap tricks and lose its vital base of customers
Unlike maruti where this used to happen I feel times have changed people know what is what and its not so easy to cheat so many customers

Just hold on for a while (without booking of course and assuming you do not need a car asap). In 4-5 months time I am sure there will be no waiting period. I could not wait and hence cancelled my booking.
