If the boot is not necessary then why do 95% of the cars have it? Pretty sure the Fiesta has one too.

I was actually quite disturbed with this thing. Good to know that ford knows the exact cars and that they are being recalled. Really Great Work.>>

One of my colleague has taken TDCI ZXi from MPL chennai on last thursday. Moon dust silver. I just saw the vehicle. It has come with Apollo. But I did not tell anything about the apolllo as he is excited on his new purchase.

Fiesta, Ikon, Fusion do not have it to my knowledge. Don't remember seeing it in Accent either.

I don't think Punto has it either. You can check here (http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/fiatpu...S_DSC02676.JPG) but with the steering connector higher up, it's not visually accessible.

Polo seems to have a black box concealing the whole thing. And I distinctly remember getting bugged by it during the test drives. That's because the Clutch has a lesser travel as compared to the other 2 pedals thanks to the box. (http://www.team-bhp.com/carpics/volk...vw_polo_14.jpg)

But I agree that the carpet area can be a better cut and finished around the hole.

Good Year if you want comfort, MRF will last longer and give your better exchange value in case you want to exchange your tyres as soon as you take the car out of the showroom. Apollo to be strictly avoided.

Has anyone got the spare parts details and Service charge details for Figo.

How much it would cost for Engine Oil, Oil Filter, etc

Also how much it would cost for replacing the airbags.

Infractions: 0/1 (5)
Default Economy

Based on the reviews so for, is it fair enough to conclude that Figo fuel economy is in the range for Petrol =10-12kmpl, Diesel =13-14.5kmpl for City drive ?

Essentially Swift/Ritz Diesels beat Figo Diesel hands down in city milage ?
