Since the dealer didn't have the Figo A/T I drove the Aspire A/T. I did check out the Figo titanium in the showroom and honestly I was disappointed. Ford has killed the Ford DNA from the new Figo and that was a deal breaker for me. The build was like Maruti! What is Ford thinking?!

Wow, we are thinking in the opposite poles then
I had a Fiesta 1.6 and I found the new Figo interiors much better and premium overall, including the design concept. If I have to pick a hatch-back right now purely on the design part, I would prefer Figo as the 1st option. Not forgetting the other features added to it.

Road Tax + RTO 5,74,438
Essential Kit (Floor Mat & Cargo Liner) 8,000
3rd Year Extended Warranty 20,494
Handling Charges 10,000
Total 36,13,567

I will get my own insurance and not agree for the handling charges.

Also looks like my booking got "official", I got an email from Ford with the subject "Get ready to bring your Ford Endeavour home". The email congratulates me on my new Endeavour and welcomes me to the Ford family. The email is signed by Anurag Mehrotra, Executive Director Marketing, Sales and Service.

That's ridiculous. Wonder how they arrive at such moronic insurance quotes. First year insurance with all possible add ons costed me 68 k for the 3 series with an ex-showroom price of 31L. How can they ask for 1.3L for the Ford then.

Have they agreed to knock off the handling charges?

Also the essential kit looks like a loot too. You will get great quality stuff for less prices outside.

If so then is it worth the 20,500INR? because my family's usage is pretty high,our Fortune has already clocked about 70,000Km in less than two and a half years,so for me it works out as 20,500INR for a 6 month extension in warranty.
Wow ! Standard warranty is just for 2 years ? and Extended warranty for just 1 more year is Rs20,500 ? Thats quite steep. Could you share what is the similar pricing for a Fortuner ? Given that warranties anyway come with so many riders, I wonder why Ford can't offer a 4 year 1 or 1.5 Lakh warranty ? I hope all prospective buyers consider this as well if your usage is going to be high.

On the handling charges - I have made my decision clear to the sales rep, he is going to get back to me.

Not sure about the essential kit - I will first take a look at the quality of the stuff and then decide.

I just received an official invitation for the Endeavour launch at Taj Residency and the cocktail dinner tonight. I am not sure of going for it because it's a last minute intimation for my schedule.

I wish if they had send the invitation atleast few days beforehand.

I went to Metro Ford on St. Marks Road on 20th and was told that they have the car on display only in Palace Road showroom. Went over to Palace Road showroom and found that the demo car has no working battery. Hence the car could not be "turned on". The display and the electrical functions like seat adjustment and rear door were not functioning.

Nevertheless spoke to a Sales person called Panduranga and he assured to call me back once they get the prices and other details. He promised to arrange a test drive but was non committal and could not commit the delivery date either. He never called back.

After a few follow up calls today to him he finally stated that the delivery for 3.2 Titanium would be 4-5 months.

Perhaps I should speak to other dealers in Bangalore as Metro Ford seem least interested in following up or committing anything.

I booked with Metro Ford, but this was earlier this month - on 6th Jan.

The quoted handling charges are 10K.

The essential kit contains Mats & Cargo Liner - haven't seen them, so don't know what it means and the quality of these items. Will take a call on this later.

They are charging around 6250 even for a Figo, so is it not a reasonable figure for a vehicle 5 to 6 times the cost ? Just curious

hi all,
just got the price list of SURAT.
My deep concern is , Dealer quoted 111000+18700=128700/-INR (for zero dep.) insurance for Ford endeavour which costs 32L.
Is it compulsory to buy insurance from dealer?
Even my 2013 BMW 520d had a 108000/- zero dep first insurance(which covered tyres plus alloys , loss of key ,hydrostatic locks etc.).
Whys dealer ripping us off?
How can we raise this issue to HIGHER LVL FORD OFFICIALS?

Dealer's insurance always has a huge margin built in. Just say NO to their insurance strongly and get it done outside. They cannot force you on this

Hello, Please do not go ahead no matter what the dealer says, Just clearly tell them you'll arrange the insurance from outside and will then forward it to the dealer for the vehicle registration, That quote from dealer is day light robbery. If they do not agree, Simply ask them to cancel the booking! I had to do the same while purchasing my XUV, the dealer had quoted me 75k for the zero dep policy, I got the same from outside for 36k.
