I think Bangalore traffic will ruin the reputation of the mighty good Ford

These days I get consistent 9.7 - 9.8 in the Hyderabad city traffic according to the MID.

Did a tank to tank method during a trip to Kerala and recorded 10.5, 11.1 kmpl as the mileage. Keep in mind there was lot of wastage because of car idling and ac running, sometimes running dual climate zones etc. Yes, i drive with a light foot. The best i saw in the MID was 13.5 or 13.8.

I generally fill half tank and it lasts for about 2-2.5 weeks. With an average daily run of 35 kilometers within city limits.

I waited almost a year to see if there are any such launch issues before I booked my Endy 2.2 Titanium yesterday.

Good FE figures there Sunil. Can you please provide tanktop figures for city driving as well?

11 kmpl is a decent fuel economy for a 3.2 litre engine
Is the MID reading concuring with the tank full to tank full method?

Hello all. I need some expert advise.

My Ford Endeavour 3.2 AT Titanium got rammed from the right yesterday by a cab trying to beat the amber light at a crossing. My car was stationary and took the brunt of the impact squarely on the front right wheel (I'm comforted to report that the cab, a Dzire, crumpled like a bug with engine damage while I barely felt the mammoth move!).
I'm attaching images of the damage as viewed superficially https://goo.gl/photos/XUgktMKFe2TM6usZ7
I know that I'm in for a new fender, front bumper, right headlamp, right alloy and right tie-rod (it snapped on impact, resulting in no steering response to right wheel). Possibly right shock-absorber and even suspension arm.
My question to the learned folk here, what else should I be watching out for so that the workshop guys don't try to gloss over the repair. I just want Surus (that's what he's called, the big bruiser) back good as new.
Grateful for the headsups.

Cheers!

A friend of mine has finalized the 3.2 4x4 Auto after test driving the Endeavor and Fortuner. Any discounts, offers or freebies he can expect in Bangalore? Anything specific to look out for other than 2017 manufacture?

Gears,
Red-One.

If you tie rod snapped as seen in the picture, I would think you need to check the steering joint (rack pinion). That must have taken one hell of beating before the tie rod gave way.

Do replace any part that is affected by the line of impact. Chances are it would be restricted to steering components more than the suspension. Once the job is done ensure the wheel alignment readings are spot on. That should take care of your worries.

Really sorry to see the damage on a new car.

Ouch!!! That hurts, but the truck has taken the beating very well. Ford are generally well built.

Just try and replace all parts which are even slightly damaged. Do not give into any kind of "Jugaad" as it will prove costly in the long run.

It would be interesting to see how much damage the Dzire suffered.

Well, the insurance survey was today, and fortunately, I landed at the bodyshop just as the survey had started. Looks like there was no apparent damage to the suspension (but alignment tests will confirm later on). I will get a new bumper, fender, headlamp and a host of other smaller stuff in the line of damage. Hopefully, a new alloy too, although its only mildly scuffed with mostly paint from the offending vehicle.
The entire steering rack has been proposed by the workshop since it is difficult to get just the tie-rod right now. The worry is the availability of parts. If they have to requisition, it could take more than a week.
I'm glad of course that the truck proved to be such a toughie. I've uploaded the photo of the Dzire in the shared album if you need to see what the American tin does to Japanese

In the two short months that I've had Surus, I've had great fun plowing through two feet of snow in Dalhousie, loose gravel (almost like fine sand) in Ranikhet and cruising north of 100 kmph on cruise control through pouring rain in Pathankot. It's a great car. My last car was a Skoda Yeti 4x4. Its understandably difficult for me to be this generous about any other car after that. I'd hate for Surus to lose his stride just because of a pesky cab.

How did the impact actually happen.
Please post few pictures.
What is the total estimate?

I kind of described the accident in my opening post above (with some photos from location in a shared link).
The estimate will be with me next week, but I expect it to be a lac plus. Will be pleasantly surprised if otherwise.
