Not at 20k kilometres but we have replaced rear brake pads on our endeavour at 40k kms and it still had around 2-3k kms life left. However I was told by SA that most of the endeavors we're having brake pad replacements at 20-25k kms. Our endeavour was driven 90% on highways. Front brake pads are still fine at 53k kms.

I haven't yet installed the grill but enquired around for the same. Price is around 12k to 15k depending on the vendor. In Hyderabad I have checked with Indian decars, banjara hills who had grills in stock with them. Not sure about the quality though. You can check with them.

As I expected the Ford guys didn't do the wiring properly when they replaced the levelers. Now it's working as it is supposed to. A waste of 3-4 hours to get this sorted out.

I ought to be more careful in driving.
Yes, I did have while the Car was less than two months old. One careless Bike rider tried to overtake from my left side while I was turning and made few deep scratches and a scratch less dent. Kairali Ford TRV used suction to lift the scratch less dent and repainted the rest. It was a good repair job and cost me 2500Rs as Insurance excess while the whole cost of repair was around 10K.

However my joy was short-lived. The car was making a 'tak-tak' sound from rear which is continuous and increased with speed. I thought there must be something loose inside and have sent the vehicle to service centre today in the morning. I got the shock of my life in the afternoon when the service centre GM informed me that Rear Drive shaft/propeller shaft is making the noise and it has to replaced. Warranty claim for the same has been initiated. Right now they couldn't even tell me when I will be able to get the car back. This time I took loaner car from them which is an Ecosport. They have thoroughly checked and serviced that ecosport before giving it me.
So our car had gone to Kerala for the holidays, while returning and as they approached Coimbatore, sound started coming from the rear side. My brother was driving and he immediately called me and mentioned that the sound is corresponding to the speed and starts at about 30-40 kmph and keeps increasing with speed, seems like something is hitting somewhere, but nothing was visible when they pulled over and checked. This was on saturday and only 11 am in the morning, so asked him to drive slowly to the nearest Ford service. Rajashree ford on the highway was prompt in taking the vehicle and after some test driving, they confirmed there is something wrong with rear prop shaft and would need work. They don't have parts and expect a downtime of about 2 weeks.

With not many option left, I asked my brother to raise a request with Customer care and see if they can assist with transportation for him and family, who were stranded 400 kms away from home.

By then the senior mechanic at the dealer comes in (he was late that day for work) and requests for 30 minutes to have a look. And this was really a turn around, apparently there was some Ford badging that had come lose from the prop shaft and was hitting somewhere while propshaft was turning. They pulled it out and the sound went away. He assured it is just a badging and has no impact on performance of the vehicle. Apparently there was one another car which had reported same issue at the dealership and the mech seemed confident about the resolution. Though my brother was shown the "sticker", he did not take any pic and was in a hurry to get back to Bangalore.

Had asked brother to drive slow for sometime to see if everything is fine, and fortunately car behaved normally the whole way. I will be taking the vehicle for some much needed clean up this weekend, and will check for any reminiscence of the so called badge and post for other owners to identify if it is there in the car. I have a doubt it might have been a balancing weight for the shaft?

Big shout out to the dealer who was very responsive, infact they got little upset when Ford made the call to them, after the issue was raised by my brother. And Ford customer care also seems to be quiet responsive during the whole affair. They were calling me multiple times, since it is my number that is registered on records.

Hoping this is last of the scares from the car.

That is dumb logic. The Brake Pads can only wear out by the rubbing action of motion / friction while stopping the car. The Brake Pads have Zero wear while we hold them stationary in D. The service advisor giving you this logic needs to get his fundamentals checked.

That said holding the car in D for too long is known to cause problems in DSG gearboxes but the Endeavour is a Torque Convertor so shouldn't be impacted.

Why would Ford bother hiking the price by ₹ 1900 on the Endeavour? This kind of a price hike certainly looks absurd. Probably cost the dealers more money to photocopy and print the price hike.
Is this some hike in tax or RTO charges ?

The ₹59000 increase probably is a price correction for the Titanium 2.2. What does the * denote?

Mine is Trend 2.2. I have been observing a shudder or thump intermittently but only at speeds of around 70-80 kmph. I am not able to understand the situation really well and has been unable to demonstrate to the Service folks as well. My guess is that the automatic transmission is trying to find a proper gear to be slotted. Because, when this happens, I can feel a thump in the car, as though it went over a pothole and at the same time I can feel a slight kick as if the transmission moved to a lower gear and the car is pushed forward in non linear fashion.

I searched the net and came up with an issue noticed in Australian version, very similar to what I face.

http://australiancar.reviews/reviews...erest&gen=1359 ( Ford Everest : thump noise on 5-6 gearshift ). apparently, this is fixed with a software update.

Another interesting thing I heard from the service folks is that there was no software update for my car which was manufactured in June 2016. I was really hoping that later version of TCM software will fix this.

Presently, I continue to run the car and occasionally coming across the problem. Anyone else experienced this?

Ford endeavour price in January
Not much increase as they changed the prices in December and was being sold at discounts of 1,5 - 2 Lac. On 2018 models, they will simply take off the discounts.

2.2 Titanium gets Panoramic Sunroof
That's a good addition but why is the price difference so little between 2,2- 4x2 and 3,2 - 4x4, it appears FORD wants to encash on buyers who want an imposing SUV with better fuel economy more than 4x4 or engine power.

Looks they are learning few things about Indian market

3.2 Titanium already had Auto-Dimming rear view mirror. Unless I am wrong.

I had a similar issue about two months back and was told that some cable was loose inside the propeller shaft and the problem was resolved using a cable tie. i dont know which cable as pick up and drop was arranged by Dhone Ford Pune. But i have not had the problem since then

I just got TCM updates last week, it is better to ask them to connect the laptop and check in front of you.
