Did anyone get an AT delivery so far?
Looks like ford is having supply constraints on the auto kit.

Nice! Since you have also booked from Elite Ford, how was the delivery experience with them? Any tips on what all I should check before delivery? And who is the SA you are dealing with? I am dealing with a guy named Abdul and he is doing a pretty good job so far of keeping me informed.

Well! They weren't sure whether to deliver the car. They have a weird policy that cars will be delivered only after they fir the number plates. But since the delay was from their end, they agreed to deliver it with a 'For Regn' sticker.

I was dealing with a guy called Somnath. He went on a long vacation. Then I was dealing with a guy called Chethan. He was on leave yesterday. Luckily I was also in touch with the sales manager all the while and so he assigned a new guy to take care of things.

When are you getting delivery??

I went to the showroom today to stress that I need delivery by Monday since I am planning to go on a trip in the car. I was told that if the number plates come by Monday, he will deliver the same day or latest by Tuesday. Ya, the policy seems weird . I see cars with the "for registration" board on the road almost every other day. If I don't get it by Monday may be I can ask for the same?

Yeah you can. I am running on 'For Regn' board as of now. I am getting my plates only on Monday. Call him again and tell him that you will be at the showroom by 3 PM on Monday. By the way when was the vehicle registered?

Mine was registered on Wednesday and they got the number today.

Mine was registered on Friday. He said most probably they will come on Monday. Fingers crossed. I will call him on Monday and tell him I will take delivery either ways

They take really long time for everything. Getting a number plate takes not more than an hour. These guys need a day.

Yes , I did drive a lot on the highways in the initial period.

About the rattles - there was a faint one - heard during night time - from the left door - which they fixed during the first service yesterday.[/quote]

Hmm....S not an expensive service....Relief!!!

I too Agree... But didn't like the Chess game at the end !

If you drive a bit sedate , then the instantaneous mileage always show 30+
For anyone planning to buy an Ecosport, the mileage should not be a concern, I should say.
But then , I regularly used to get good fuel averages with my earlier Santro and Swift . So I guess a lot depends on the way you drive also

Thumbs up Re: Ford EcoSport : Official Review

Hi xuv2390,

That's an awesome review. Appears you are enjoying every moment with her. Wish you many many more happy (s)miles. I have created a 360 degree of your baby from the images - https://www.facebook.com/Turnaround....pbyUagjCYp-usr. If you could send some equidistant pics, I would be able to do a better job, I promise

I am still waiting for my red falcon from mars. 46 days and counting, and haven't got any confirmation from Elite ford. The last time I spoke with the manager over there, I was told my number is 4th in the list but the supply of Tit(O) is just trickling at the moment so I need to wait

Somehow I'm denied permission to read your review. wonder why!!!
Wanted info about the Opera House guy.
Planning to source Roof rails and the scuff plates from him.
Dealers are charging really high prices.
Did he have the roof rails by any chance?

Even I am denied the permission to read the review.
Earlier I thought it was because I was a "newbie"

Any other possible reasons?

Guys, watch out ! I have seen cops pulling over cars with such boards. I have also seen cars being driven around with "REGISTERED" stickers. There seems no clear understanding if they will catch "For Regn" cars, but do watch out.
