Default Ford Fiesta 1.4?

Hi,
I have almost zeroed in on the Ford Fiesta 1.4, but Im still not too sure about the after sales & service and the maintanence costs of a ford vehicle. Would be useful if ford owners, fiesta owners in specific point out the service and maintanence costs of the vehicle and also their experiences of owning the 1.4. I stay at bangalore and I have been talking to Cauvery ford. Any good or bad experiences about the dealer are also welcome.

I have had bad experiences from two dealers,one in cochin and one in mangalore with regard to my Fiesta Tdci.They gave me the car on day 1 with a defective horn.Dont they have a check list before delivering the car to the customer?.One major problem with the service guys in mangalore is that,one issue have to repaired twice.On the first time they will send back the car without even checking whether the problem is rectified.Fod has to learn from A.S.S of Hyundai.

I get a similar feeling in my 1.4 but then I lug my engine sometimes. If I work gears faster and drive the way it should be driven, don't notice much.

Do you too drive on 3rd or 4th on the city at rpm less than 1500 continuously and lazily? That is when it is the most audible.
