If the music player is active on the mobile when the mobile is paired to the car then the music starts playing if I press the next button (not automatically)

And when the player is not active, it does not. Mine is 5800. I guess it is more to do with the phone's firmware.

@RGK, just went through your ownership thread. I sincerely hope your problem with the Figo is sorted out and you are able to enjoy your car. I admire your patient but persistent way of dealing with the company and their dealers. Would posting the thread on their Facebook page help?
Yes Engine noise has got reduced inside but definitely not like before. Still there are some issues which got created of unnecessary fiddling of the engine (mentioned in my thread). Sent 11 mails to Ford so far especially on this issue. Still no reply except customised one "will take care". Will post in Facebook if Ford does not listen. Ford support to service centres in critical issues seems to be a question mark.

Its just the inability of the dte to calculate an absolute value when less fuel is filled in a car which already had the fuel warning light on. Happens more commonly in petrol versions.

By the way, I am working on the squeaks issue and I will have some solution in a day or two.
Mustang,

Any Fix for the Squeaks?? its really annoying that too getting such sounds from a new car.
My cars ODO will be crossing 8,200 KM soon.

Mustang, Should I take the car in now to fix all these smaller issues or can I wait until 10,000 KM? Because read some other post where is said that some parts have warranty only until 10,000 KM.

Default Now Figo on Discounts

Figo has started its discounts in a bigger way - may be first after its launch...

In Tamilnadu, Insurance (betn 13 to 15k) and 6k worth of accessories are free. Some customers are able to negotiate till 10k. This is applicable to all models of Figo.

Bhavna Ford offered me the titanium for 6.34 on road and will throw in insurance free + corporate discount so that will work to about 6.10. Steal?

@vij4all

try negotiating with all the dealers that prevalent in the region of mumbai and nearby areas, compare all of them against each other, and pin the offers given by one dealer over the head of the other.

you will get the best deal then

Steal or not, still better than the non ABS/non Airbag Swift Vdi that you were/are considering on the other thread.

I am considering a Figo or to wait for Etios Liva. Can any owner answer a very stupid question? The rear seat folds superbly in Figo, providing a flat bed. Can that space actually be used as a bed, by putting on some mattress on it? Also, will it be possible to have it that way and sit with crossfolded legs, while travelling? Or is the roof too low for sitting on it?

I told already, these are stupid questions! But I would really appreciate the answers to these questions.

If it can be folded, it can be used as a bed or you may sit cross-legged, but not advisable when the Car is on move.

BTW, the wait for the blue oval starts, have sent the cheque. Waiting in earnest.

But why do you want to do that? Yes the place is very much comfortable for an average sized Joe!

Yes, but seeing the flat space after folding the rear seat, I thought it would be great to have this as an option, a moving bed Besides, the idea of traveling with few friends / kids at rear seated on the folded rear bench in circle playing cards/board games is appealing too.

NOT AT ALL APPEALING!

It is very unsafe to travel like that. Always travel in the seats and in a well strapped condition. Cars are not rail wagons!
