Hey guys, I took a break from all the figo threads & made my fusion ownership thread. Check it out at http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/long-t...rm-report.html (Fusion+ TDCi (Panther Black) long term report.)
Mustang. That is good news.

Which means Ford accepts that a OEM was at fault and should ideally recall all cars with Apollos and replace them. Hmmmm.

Saw a red Figo today with 15" Momo Alloys and 195/60 R15 Goodyear as footwear. Wondering if the person is there on this forum and how it is fairing out over the stock 14" wheels.

IMO, the FGP is more FE than F-Figo. We need to wait and watch though..

Are these figures calculate from full tank to full tank or is it what the dgital display shows? I would really like to know. Coz i never thought a car could do above 800km in city with just one full tank!!!

How will that help the customer? Shouldn't ford come out with a circular to replace all apollo tyres on Figo's or ATLEAST CALL BACK CARS FOR A CHECK!!!
I still have a slight pull to the left. The A.S.S has no info on the apollo issue and they claim its because of the roads. How many Figo owners are members of such forums? How are they supposed to know bout such things? Is it that FORD is unable to figure out which cars were fitted the the apollo's!!!

I'll just share with you my feelings as an owner.
- The dealers have charged me Rs.6980 for the 3rd and 4th year extended warranty. Now when i enquire with them they say there is no 4th year warranty!!! They did not have the courtesy / decency to call me up and refund my money even till now.
- After 1 month i am yet to receive part of the so called "essential pack" and another part is already broken in 2 weeks of use.!!! I thought Ford knew what was "essential"!!
- I have sent a mail for ford customer care stating my concerns. Two days later i receive a mail that the are looking into it and i would soon get a call. Its a week now and i am still waiting for that call.

So things dont seem to be that good. Atleast from the customer care point of view. Good car though. But hey! the Fiat cars are better. The only reason i moved from them is for better response in case of a issue.

Mustang: I would surely like to hear on your take with this.

Regarding FE of Figo, they are not consistent across owners even in our forum. Ford has to fix this and address initial issues (eg: Gemi, Ebiz). If Ford thinks that they have done the job, I think they have just jumped half of the well..

@Headers - FGP is definitely a better car but at a higher price. My question is how long will Fiat continue these cars. They have a bad history regarding this. Pl refer my view in the automsn blog

Just saw 2 interesting pics here and thought would put them here side by side.

1st pic is the Figo and second is the new WagonR.

Thats a good find vid6639. I think these pics need to be sent to ford management.

Between: Does the Figo come with Drive by Wire? Those accelerator pedals look like that.

Pardon my ignorance, But I did not get the message. Are you suggesting of the striking similarities. But I assume most of the footwells will look similar.

He's talking about the area where the steering rod goes under the platform.

Gemi, Slight pull is not a problem, Today i drove a figo with those defective apollos & I can assure you that the pull is really really strong.

As far as the termination of the apollo tires contract goes, well the contract has been terminated, not because apollo supplied all defective tires but because they provided some defective tires.

On saturday i met a customer also at harpreet gurgaon, who had come to get his defective apollo's changed & he told me that he never cared about this problem but ford people called him up to tell him that his car had this problem & then he noticed it & then he has come to the service station.

This means that ford is already calling up the figo owners with defective tires & they know who these guuys are & i guess you are not one of them.

Well, that's what I thought, and I guess he was trying to point out the rubber boot used in the Wagon R.

However, that doesn't play any functional role, even dust/grime doesn't matter on that linkage (it's similar to the linkage one can see from the gearbox to the propeller shaft of most real wheel drive vehicles), so the boot is not necessary.

Does it void warranty if I change the steel rims to alloy wheels(14") as well?

Guys, what is the PCD for the Ford Figo?
