Not sure if this is applicable for EcoSport, but still posting here for reference.

I recently got an lighting upgrade on my EcoSport: fitted the XP Micro 3 inch projectors in place of the stock fog lamp.

Massive improvement in visibility!

I'm facing a funny problem with my petrol ecosport. If the car stalls, coz of releasing clutch too fast while in gear, it doesn't start again. And gives me abs malfunction error. Thankfully it hasn't happened many times. 3 times in one year so far. The ford breakdown person comes, jump starts the car, and everything is fine after that. I got it serviced recently, and had asked for it to be checked up. But I was told there's nothing wrong with the abs or battery. Any clues on what causes this? And how to avoid it?

Personally for me 3 times would make me seriously doubt on future reliability, imagine this happening at a desolate location. A better way to diagnose this issue would be to tow the car back to the service centre without getting it jump started. Ask the service guys to do an OBD scan and read out all error codes.

Glad that's sorted. I am not sure of it is okay to ask, but do you mind sharing the deal for the pre owned ecosport you bought. Actually i am looking at selling my car, but am unsure if my asking price is a little too high. Mine is a white ecoboost titanium (keyless one), ran ~26k, will turn 4 yrs this September. I am currently looking at a price of around 6 - 6.2 lacs. Any pointers is appreciated. Thanks.

Ford has started showing Auto-dimming Mirrors on its website. Since when are they offering this and in what variants? It wasn't there till as recently as July 2016, as pointed in the libranof1987's ownership review. The variant comparison also doesn't show this.

However, when checked with the dealer about this, reverse camera display cannot be integrated with the automatic day/night mode IRVM (this feature only comes with Titanium+ diesel and probably Titanium AT version as well).

However this mirror doesn't have auto or manual dimming feature. Apparently, Ford or Nippon aren't doing anything about it.

Any idea if we can get this done outside? A bunch of BHPians have retrofitted the electrochromic mirror.

The current brochure on Ford's website does show an electrochromic IVRM on the Titanium+ variants.

It says rear view camera is part of standard equipment on Titanium+.

Looks like all these changes happened recently when they took out some features and added others.

I doubt the image they have shown of the mirror is correct; electrochromic mirrors typically have a sensor at the bottom. That sensor determines when the night mode comes on. Funny!

It's been there since a while, My Nov 2016 Titanium+ TDCi came with it.
Nifty feature if you hit the highway often, helps with the trucks too!

Does the tax-incidence on a sub-4m car decrease under GST to warrant a price-cut?

BTW, ford has jacked up the price quite a bit in past year - they may take this opportunity to correct it.

It could be just to clear old stock to make way for the upcoming new model

I called up Talera Ford, Pune and the lady said Bajaj, Royal Sundaram and New India are their preferred vendors. Iffco Tokio is one too but advised against it as claims weren't as smooth.

She then went on to say that I have to take the policy from a Ford dealer else the cashless facility won't be guaranteed outside Pune. Also that if I change vendors and want to take the engine protector add-on, there will be an inspection.

She just couldn't believe it that I took my insurance during car purchase by myself and not my Ford dealer. Went on to say that I took a risk.

I'll call Ford today and decide how to proceed. I saved almost 10k by taking insurance myself and not through my dealer so I know they have a strong motivation in indulging in such tactics.

It seems that you called up their sales office. Their job is to sell cars and overpriced insurance. Their bonus depends on it. So their behavior is quite natural. Simply go to the authorized workshop which is near you and talk with the service adviser who deals in repairs. Ask which insurance providers have cashless tie ups with them. No need to say where you are planning to but car from their sales branch or just say preowned. Inquire the same in some other workshop in case you have multiple in your area.
