Well thats not the point anyway, the good thing to know as we see on this and other recent threads is that the fords are becoming cheaper to maintain.

This is not a common thing to happen with Fiesta. Either the car had some real bad problem (met with accident) when it was bought buy your friend or your friend is maintaining it poorly.

Very sure that its not an accident car and the fact that he has spent somuch on the car itself shows that he maintains it well.

Default The scratch

Hi guys.. this is the scratch I was talking about. It's quite small so I think I'll just let it be for now. I took a look at the com paint website that sanjay had posted earlier. They do not have a touch up paint in this color. If anyone knows where to get touch up paint in this color, please let me know.

I checked their website, but they seem to have only general colors. Com Paint has the actual OEM colors but not this particular one.

Hey we use this thing called rubbing in the local lingo of the painters. Costs 50 and can be used to get rid of superficial scratches and paint marks.

Ganges Ford touched up the scratch on my door for free when I went there for my 1st service. It doesn't look too bad. I will try to post a picture.

++
More dealers means more service facility which is definitely good and encouraging news for Ford Car Ownerss. It will give them accessibility of service centres closer than the present one and will have competition among dealers means benefit to buyers?
Let us wait for more information about this(new dealerships) from Ford.

Is Chennai getting an additional sales/service center? CF and MPL could do with some new competition. They have had none for more than 10 years now.
