Well it will be a concern if only Ford does that, if everyone else follows the same thing then only thing we can do is use our discretion. While you are right in saying all that you said, it just ends up as a rhetoric! We can't ask the manufacturers to not to do such things, can we?

For Figo Diesel variants, what will be the engine rpm in 5th gear while going at 120 kmph? Has anyone noted this accurately? Or what will be the rpm at 100 kmph?

2400-2500 - 100
2900-3000 - 120
3500 - 140
4000 - 160

it's the speedo reading. actual speed would obiviously be lesser i guess.

Thanks. So at 120 kmph in speedo, the rpm will be obviously more than 2800 at least. I just wanted to know that. Yes, actual speed will be like 110 kmph when speedometer shows 120.

I am not too sure if it should be 3500 at 140 KMPH, it should be a little lesser as far as I remember. The same applies to 120 range too.

Are these figures with a/c or w/o?

Anybody having problems with squeaky wipers? On my recent trip in heavy rain, the wiper started making squeaky sound after some 15-20 mins of constant usage. Has anybody else come across this problem? Is there any homemade remedy ??

Squeaky wipers are a potential problem in all cars!

One home brewed solution is to clean your windshield glass with newspaper & water, and then wipe your wiper blades down with vinegar.

Were you there today ? Does your car have LTD on the rear hatch door below the Figo marking ?

Am completing 1 yr Next week, currently ODO at 16k+. I got under chassis coating done during 2nd free service at 3k.

Wash the car with Pantene shampoo and plain water.... leaves a fine gloss just like polish.

Regarding milage, my DTE was down to 530ish 2 weeks back. was getting around 13ish. Am currently about to complete 1300+ kms which is 80% highways mostly and speed hovering around 80 with A/c ON all the time. Economy is 22-23ish on highway, will confirm tomorrow when I refill.

Yes i was there in the morning to drop the car. I have a LTD sticker below the figo marking. Were you there and at what time. I got the car ready at 7:30pm, they took more than 2 hours for the Teflon coating!

The standard tacho reading for all figos is less than or equal to 2000 rpm for 80kmph @ 5th gear. If this is correct, then the rpm to speed ratio is normal.

AC does not make a difference in rpm in a particular gear at a particular speed. It is just that the fuel consumption will be little more with AC, due to the increased load.

Are you sure that at 120kmph, rpm is even less than 2900? Is it somewhere in the range of 2500?

Building one lakh Figos doesnt seem to have made much difference to the appearance of squeaks and rattles. My dashboard is more or less one of those rattle toys on rough roads and poorly finished concrete roads.
Luckily, the music system is good.

I can confirm 2500 rpm for 100 in 5th gear. This tested this for nearly 300 kms It holds true when there are no serious up/down slopes.
