Yes, have seen this.
Understand Fiesta EXI variant has been upgraded as Limited Edition and introduced in the market. May be trying to boost the sales of EXI?

Ownership report 2000 KM
completed 2000 km last night, its a very good experience with some of the below observations:

1. mileage is satisfactory with 12 - 12.5 in city and 13.5 - 14 on highway before the first service
2. the driving pleasure is good and comfortable
3. the plastic cabinet where the mobile charger and aux in is placed used to come out on taking off the mobile charger, may be some tight fitting is required

rest it is a good car.

yes, it is same in my car also- when you give little pressure the whole part
comes out. May be it was made like that (in lose condition?). Will have to check with service people when the car goes for 2nd service.

Nice, short review. Covered all aspects of the car!! Browsing from mobile is it? or you are the twitter kind of guy?

1. So you are following the "Save Fuel by over 20%" ad guidelines, eh? Gone over 60kmph or not yet?

2. Unanimous verdict! No arguments, No surprises, No contradiction.

3. he he he! Happened couple of times with my new 12v-200AC converter - put some lipgloss (vaseline) around the plastic edges (warning-do not put on metal parts) and another "eureka" moment for me. Try some jugaad boss, getting it fixed at the a.s.s may actually worsen the situation, for all you know!!

I have taken the fiesta above 140 kmpl and at high it is mostly around 110 - 120 otherwise i would have got a mileage of atleast above 14 kmpl

So, took the car out yesterday with outmost care so that the gate position should not get disturbed.
Congrats on the new car and new gate. Can we have some snaps of the gate. Looks like the Fiesta and Linea are the most popular cars on TBHP now. Looks like I will have to decide between these two for my next car.

Thats great. 12+ in city is really a very good mileage you are getting.

Post my trip back, I am getting only between 10-11..Earlier, I used to take the car for some 40-50Km drive early morning on highways just to complete the run in period..now, post coming back, not much driving has been done..only around 200Kms, mostly for a short trip to drop off kids at school or going to office in bumper2bumper traffic.

I've seen the car pics. No need for the gate pics, I was just joking. Anyway, I also need to do some modification to my gate as it sometimes becomes difficult to put the car in.
