Yes my car was part of that recall. I had the software updated also.

No it does not. I have been driving my Aspire for the last 2 years and have not scraped the bottom even once. And this includes times I have been surprised by sudden bumps, and drives over the really bad roads in Manipal. I have so much confidence in the GC now that I don't even go slow over bad roads anymore.

The problem ha been solved. there was some condensation on the Restrain control module. Removed the module disconnected power supply. reconnected and everything seems to work fine now.

Good it turned out to be a minor issue. Did they give a reason for this condensation? It should ideally not be prone to such things and cause a panic specially on a component as critical as air bags!

Well there is a solid reason behind this. The car has recovered from a recent flooding incident. There was some water seepage inside he cabin, since water rose to completely cover the car upto the front grill. Had taken the car to the service center then and had to replace the air filter. I am pretty sure that is what caused this. But I kept mum actually to the service advisor. If they find a case of water ingress they'll surely take me for a ride. (although there was a fair bit of chance that their vehicle history would show the incident). But seems like they could not link it. So all is well as of now.

3. As most of aspire, ecosport, figo owners I too got the 'molten eye' on my headlights, its gone for Ford Warranty claim, hopefully I will get it replaced in a week's time- they do not have the spare parts it seems hence the delay.

Can I ask you guys if you have heard that 'buzzing' noise when you tun on the car? It is heard even when engine and AC is off and persists when the engine is running and never stops?!

Thanks for reading.

Z
Got my call early last week for replacement of my headlamps from Ford, both changed free of cost and under warranty.

Need to mention Ford India's professionalism and their commitment to service here.

I spoke to Metro ford as there was no response/ call back on my complaint on 27 Oct- he mentions there is no response from Ford on my complaint, concerned, I wrote a polite email to Ford customer care asking for an update.
Soon as the email had gone and until the 31 Oct 17, I got call from both dealer and Ford every day either updating or saying sorry. Cut the long story short I got to the service station on 31 Oct and got it replaced in less than 30 minutes.

Reason for the fault is unknown and seems that there have been a few similar complaints in the service center. Not sure what happens if the part fails again after warranty period.

And the buzzing noise is still heard and no solutions yet from the service station.

Thanks.
