Default Re: Ford EcoSport : Official Review

After booking the car on 4th August from Capital Ford (Bhubaneswar), got several assurances that I will get the Ecoboost Titanium(o) in 3 months. It is more than 4 months now, the dealer says me the car will be delivered before Christmas. Today I get a call from Ford India saying that I will have to wait till 6 more weeks for the car.

Immediately my father called up the dealer and instead of assuring me a delivery date, the salesperson argues with my father.

I am highly disappointed by the dealer's service and I am canceling the booking right away. Capital Ford is a pathetic dealership with no value of their commitment.

My commiserations. But then this is not entirely unexpected. MoM dispatches are coming down(which means exports are going up) while the rest of the line-up is not selling either!


PS: MAS buddy, these delays are making me think about you: I should have bought your Fusion then!

I believe there is also a scheduled 15 days year-end plant shutdown for yearly maintenance. This shall seriously impact deliveries in the last week of December and first 2 weeks of january, during which, the supposed price hike is going to take place.

Makes no sense if ford doesn't offer price protection to even customers who have booked before the first price hike (ie., September). Taking the blow of two price hikes after having waited for 5-6 months really takes away the VFM aspect from ecosport, which was the main USP at the time of launch. Surely leaves a sour after-taste.

Default Re: Ford EcoSport : Official Review - SYNC Issues

Hi Ecosport Owners who have SYNC, The SYNC in the Ecosport has worked like a dream for the last 4 months - I had connected my IPod Nano to the USB slot, but just this Sunday whenever I start the car it says "USB not connected". I tried with another USB Pend Drive and still it doesn't detect it. I tried the Master Reset and the system diagnostics and everything else is perfect except that it doesn't detect any USB device. Blue Tooth Audio, Line In, CD, Radio & Voice calls on the Phone work just fine. Only the USB is not being detected. Appreciate any help from similar experiences.
Thanks, Roy

Just format the drive ,reload the songs and go again.
If this doesn't help do a master reset again and then remove and reconnect the battery negative terminal.
That should solve the problem

I am experiencing a somewhat unusual but similar problem. I used to play songs from my iPhone using USB connector which also doubles as charging point for my iPhone. However, from last few days, whenever i connect iPhone and start the iPod app, my phone displays the message that "Accessory not supported". Has anyone experienced the same problem and what could be the possible solution?

Also, yesterday when I was parking my car in a tight spot which involved multiple shifts between D mode and Reverse mode (and windows down), I have noticed that whenever I put the car in Reverse, a clinking sound (like some cables in action shifting the gears) emanates from the car. Is this normal for DCT transmission of Ford? I haven't heard similar sound from VW's DCT transmission in Polo.

Regards

Dear TSI, I get a similar message on my Iphone 5 (after upgrading to IoS 7) if I use a Non-Apple cable or accessory for charging the message verbatim "This cable or accessory is not certified and may not work reliably with this Iphone".
As however explained in my earlier post the problem is with my USB port which doesn't detect any USB device including my IPod Nano, USB Pen Drive or my Iphone. I awaiting a reply from Ford directly in a day or two and will keep you posted .

Regards

Dear Ecosport rules, I formatted the Pen drive and reloaded it. I tried the SYNC Master reset and the result is the same it says "No USB drive detected" but I did not yet do the Battery disconnect option. Have you faced a similar issue on the USB drive not being detected.

How do I set the number for emergency assistance.
Like 108 for Hyderabad

Hi srinivas,

The car is set to dial 108 by default.
It is the same pan India, if you remember the Goa media drive 108 had responded to the call from ecosport.

Hi Royfernandez, have you tried formatting the pen-drive with the 'FAT-32' format?
As my car does not recognize USB drives flashed with 'NTFS' format. Also, what size of USB drive are you using? there is a restriction with regards to the maximum size as well, I guess it is about 64GB.

Hello Arivind Anand, If you read my post carefully you will realize that I have been using my Ipod Nano 16GB for the last 4 months with absolutely no problem. I do not use a Pen Drive on the USB socket. Currently when the USB drive is selected through the AUX mode, SYNC says "No USB Drive connected"

Maybe a normal operating sound. However, I have not noticed any unusual sound from my vehicle. Will listen closely with window down and get back to you.

The Euro Car of the Year website actually does not have the Ecosport in the initial list of 30. Only Ford vehicle present in the list is the Kuga. Not sure if the Indian auto blog website got the numbers wrong.
