Nice review, and yes, my own Endy has done 2000 in 20 days, and I am absolutely loving it too! Did a few ghats, some expressway sprints, and a lot in the city too. No matter where you take her, it's fun!

I'm looking to take a good trip into the hills, but I am waiting for the monsoons to hit first Your tips and review has totally revved me up.

Default Neighbour's Envy Owner's Endy...

Hi!

Planning to buy the same one if everything works out wrt finances (Black, 3.0 AT). This post has given a lot of information. Thanks, Bro!

My only cause of concern (and I am not being able to get rid of it) is the mileage. Ya! Ya! I do know that one can't have everything, but I am used to my Logan and its 21+ kpl on Mumbai roads.

7-8 kmpl of diesel is what you can expect

On the other hand, it's a small price to pay to get right on way at every intersection, the satisfaction of scaring the hell out of autorickshaws, seeing cars screech to a halt as you enter the crossroad, wide eyed guys and girls alike staring at your beast, and the pleasure of climbing footpaths, rocks, and the occasional Nano without so much as flinching an eyelid

Fore_Runner - Many Congratulations on your purchase. Nice review and Nice pictures. It is a Solid SUV. Ford should have come up with ideas keeping the extra tyre inside. The only thing in which I feel fortuner looks better from rear - Sorry !!! It's my personal feeling.

Endy! is always a good buy. What is the on road price for Endy? The photos of endy are really nice. Do also share in detail about your exp. with the Endy on Highways (body roll,top speed etc).

I haven't told my wife about the buy, although I have completed all of my prelim activities, and am sure she will have a thing or two about the 'girls staring at the beast', but undoubtedly she has liked the car and the occassional mention when we cross one on the road has prompted her to say, '...there goes your Xena' (the warrior princess).

A lot of people want to buy cars that are utopian, that is to say many of us want beasts yet we want them silk smooth, we want them large yet we want them to give a mileage better than the most fuel efficient car on the road, we want them to be powerhouses yet we want them low on maint, we want them to have world class interiors yet we want them to be as inexpesive as the entry level in the category... having said this some of these would still be possible, but there would be a price that one would have to pay.

The Endy is a great buy, and while it may show some of the problems that have been mentioned in other foras, I think it is worth the buy.

All of the above is what I kept in mind when I captured the Endy in my mind... and while the bonnet is still hanging out of my wallet, but I'll do something or the other to get bonny in... and I look forward to writing my review in this forum as well.

Chao!

The THING is so roomy, I just liked it....

Hi! How much did the roof-rack and the customized ladder cost you? Where did you pick them up from? What 'customisation' did you do (didn't see no photos)?

What about 'stock tyres'... or have you covered them somewhere in the posts for I may have missed it.

Chao!
