No sob stories on Ford maintenance. Plenty of boorish experiences at Honda service centres.

But i m thinking for the limited edition...I m getting it For Rs.6,03,000/- On Road with 4 yrs extended warranty....shud i extend my budget for the 1.6 S or this is ok...coz i m nt too much inclined towards the 1.6 s...as budget increases then my mind moves towards ANHC...
The limited edition is a sweet deal, plus exclusivity within the Fiestas.

read above again and if you can spend more and really want a fun car then get the Cedia.

Regarding Fiesta scratching at bottom, have'nt faced this issue on my SXI, even once on those horrendous stretches in Orissa during the Che-Kol-Che trip. I have these 3 bumper "bumpers" in my daily commute path, one of them being bang in front of a primary school (JRK Matriculation, hence take it for granted that it is not one of those normal speed breaker but actually kind of back-breaker)..and the other two which is back-2-back kinds while passing thru a congested hutment colony (where little 3-yr old kids cross the street on their own)...have'nt faced the scraping issue at all, even with full load.

What is this with Bangalore bumpers? Have been to Blr as well (to Bangalore club and from there to Filmcity amusement park or whatever that is called) - did'nt have a problem at all, and this with full 5-people load.

BTW, for in-city driving, I find the 4.5m or so turning radius a boon while negotiating U-turns or while parking, where even those hatches find it difficult sometimes.

we are talking about ANHC scraping not Fiesta.
