I noticed today that the sound is coming from the left sun visor area. I tapped that area and the creaks were there. Will need to take it to FASS for rectification. I had not changed the engine oil during 1st service as the SA mentioned that it was not required. But i plan to change it at around 2500kms. Will rectify this sound then. Can live with it for time being.

I have the rogerabs fitted to my eco tdi. As reported the nasty thuds have indeed disappeared but I noticed the side to side roll has increased and I find it far more uncomfortable than the thuds. I will try by removing them the next time I get the alignment done and report back.

Besides has anyone upgraded their dampers or springs? Are there any upgrades available? If yes then what are the options? I believe the Ecosport has one of the worst suspension setup on a car ever!

Thanks for the feedback. Will wait for your update on this.

I have been struggling to get this sorted.

This was fine after the last service, now it is back since last week. I am anyway taking this to FASS end of the week to get this sorted.

Please let me know if you find the source of the same.

please check in between the sun visor and roof is there any gap, if so you can remove the visor and push inside to the hooked side a bit till you can see no further gap.

Please ignore if there is no gap.

When I tried to explore this one came in from the LHS Dashboard or the Left Door.

I do not suspect anything from the Sun Visor, especially because the roof fabric is clothlike and even if SunVisor hits it, it may not be loud. but since you mentioned that, let me check again.

The Sync version of Ecosport was updated way before the facelift was launched, in feb 2015 when they released Sync with Applink. Its likely you have the new version.

I don't know how I missed that!

I am thinking about getting the Ecosport Ecoboost Trend+ or the Honda City V iVtec MT. And making up my mind has been a nightmare! Probably contributed to all this!
Same confusion here at my home buddy! :/
What did you buy finally?

Driven my new EcoSport TDCI Titanium for ~2,300 km in one month of ownership and have a few observations to share:
  1. The front doors feel heavy and shut with a solid thud, however the rear doors seem relatively light.
  2. The sync system pauses music intermittently. Tried re-pairing the phone multiple times but the issue persists. Devise used - iphone
  3. During the 2 long test drives I took before the purchase, could clearly make out a mild turbo whistle when revved. Liked this a lot in those TD cars, but this is non-existent in my ES.
  4. Parked the car once on a higher ground and when viewed from a distance, was surprised to notice the low hanging exhaust pipe. Could breathe easy only after finding a mention of this in the official review.
  5. Though I was conscious about the thick A-pillar, it took some quite time to get used to the blind spots.
Overall, itís been a very satisfying experience with the ES so far.

The only thing I have got is a lot of stick from people who have been trying to help me make my mind.

There is the rumour about the Honda City face-lift that is supposed to come out at the Auto Expo, which supposedly fixes all the niggles, I'll be looking at that, or else I am buying the 2017 Ford Ecosport, whenever it comes out. There I have decided.

It makes sense, doesn't it? The Ecosport is getting old, and with the competition from Hyundai and Suzuki coming along, they cannot afford to sit back and watch, can they? And there is the news that the Ecosport will be sold in US from October 2017, well, if they weren't planning on making a new Ecosport, why would they wait for almost two years before introducing the Ecosport there?

Also, the Linea Abarth seems to be an interesting proposition for me!

Thanks to Balachandar M P for sharing!

EcoSport prices hiked! Titanium diesel ex-showroom price crosses the critical 10 lakh mark, making the on-road costlier which could tilt customers towards Trend+. Attached is the latest price list from MPL Ford, Chennai.
