Hi Mobike,

I bought the car after a detailed research over six months but the accesory part of it I left it to the dealer as I was fed up with them giving NO as an answer for any of my requests.....

I have just ordered a paprika red Fusion 1.6 petrol which costs 6.73 on road in Bangalore. They offer no discounts except that the dealer is offering a sound system this month with absic accessories. My test drive made me feel good. So far I have been driving a WagonR. The only thing I felt and I am not too sure if I am right is that the power steering in WagonR was smoother than the Fusion. I mean I can use a finger to rotate it. I only hope that the Fusion is good and I dont get any disappointments.

Dear Vashisht,

Dont worry on the power steering part. It is a breeze. I used to drive a Maruti 800 (of course it does not have a power steering) and the Fusion steering is much better than that. The manueverability is really good.

The MP3 player comes in as a March Masti from Ford India offer so the dealer has actually not offered any discounts. This is how Ford functions I guess........

This is the special treatment for Fusion only :-). Dealers are so hardnosed and will not offer any discounts. In December 2007 i bought Ikon Flair, after failing to get any reasonable discounts on Fusion Petrol. All they offered me is 7k corporate discount on Fusion. Whereas i got 30K discount on Ikon(in Bangalore).

Now they have re-introduced Fusion+. It will cost about ~38k more for ABS+EBD, height adjustable driver seat, Alloy wheels and body coloroured ORVMs, side skirting etc. IMHO, going for Fusion+ will be good choice, since the goodies offered are real value for those extra bucks.

Fusion + is really a value for money with ABS + EBD Body Coloured Accesories etc. I would have loved ABS and electronic OVRMs in my Fusion............

Co ngrats, Vipul! Lovely colour, but aint seen one in that colour so far.
BTW, what is that rectangular switch to the left of the hazard warning switch? They look like sliding controls of a graphic equalizer.
