Thanks snaronikar. Pics are on page 1 of the ownership review thread:
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...-duratorq.html (From Fusion to Fusion: My Ford Fusion Diesel Plus (TDCi/DuraTorq))

I am told by several of my friends who own Fords that a.s.s. at both dealers in Hyderabad is decent enough - but I know the spares are costlier, especially for Fusion, for which indiginisation is a tad lower. I am on a 2 year TMP though.
And btw, some idiot scraped my car's rear with his car in the parking lot at Lifestyle building at Begumpet yesterday night while I was enjoying dinner at Haveli, probably to give me a taste of the a.s.s. in Hyderabad.
I left my car today morning at the dealer and so far they seemed fair enough. Will update in a couple of days.

4- tin work poor - You mean build quality? Yes the build is very poor.

5- and lots of plastic noises incabin - Yes thats true too. Lots of rattles and very poor NVH.
I get 11-12 if I drive in certian rpm range, a bit spirited driving drops it to 10.5

Build quality is as good as of any other car in it segment.

No rattle sound in my after 3500 KM.

Hi
I own Fusion plus and did consider switching to SX4 when it was launched but decided against because of following reasons:
  1. Only 2 people can sit comfortably in SX4 back seat
  2. doesnt offer the flexibility of folding the seats to extend the cargo area
  3. performance is simillar to fusion, may be little lower.
  4. doesnt really offer any extra benefits other than a larger boot but you loose on the compactness/ease of parking-reaversing a hatch like fusion offers
