Can any figo diesel titanium owners please let me know the IDV value in their insurance?

I have a slight issue with my insurance (which I have posted here: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...ml#post2410569 (Insurance Queries?)) and want to verify if it is ok.

Thanks for sharing the news. And I remember Mr. Mustang mentioning elsewhere that Ford will do an update on Figo once it cross the 100K mark

Really a milestone for an American Car company in India. The hardwork/homework done by Ford was immense so that they were able to compete and come good in an highly crowded Japan/Korean dominated segment.
This success will rewrite Ford's strategy in the future. Hope they completely sort out the niggles faced by Figo owners. Out of 1 lakh vehicle sold, how many are petrols ?.

Ford should thank tbhp for the genuine reviews and feedbacks.

I'd say a very deserving car and its no surprise this thread has had so many views. This is one of my favorite threads in the forum and follow it all the times, though i have no intention of buying this car. To me, Figo D is the car to own in its segment and is a perfect all-rounder.

In my case, there is no change to phone...The same thing was working perfectly fine for 1 year and now my Bluetooth is almost useless :-( . May be I will give a try of visiting Lathangi Ford, the dealer from whom I bought. If there is any software upgrade available, need to try that. Hope that will be free of cost.

Guys I had asked this question before - but it was confused with a different problem BHPians were having. So here I go again:

I have been noticing a behaviour in my Figo since delivery - in the first and second gears, if the car is doing decent rpm (1000 and above) and I lift my foot from the pedal - the car has so much braking it jerks suddenly - in fact brakes give lesser jerk unless I stand on them.

The jerks are there even if I switch of the AC, though they get reduced considerably.


This problem causes very low speed drivability to be hellish for me - I can not practically use the pedal control at all, have to use clutch and brake.


Is this normal behaviour (I'm a new driver - so if it is normal I wouldn't know)?

I find that I have to slam it really hard to close it. And during the security check 0daily at office, the guards bang it twice or thrice to close the boot properly.
try closing with one of the doors opened, if you still have to hit it hard to close then the locks just bit tight. But if closes easily when one of the door is open then its because of air inside the cabin that is gets out though the doors when closing the boot. when closing with all the doors closed, the air inside the cabin has nowhere to go so they are getting compressed hence the hardness for closing.

I think it is not the air in the cab these guys are experiencing - @anilsanil (or someone else) mentioned an alignment problem - if that is the case to begin with then repeated "bang bang bang" might have made situation bad in most of these vehicles.

Is this normal behaviour (I'm a new driver - so if it is normal I wouldn't know)?
I have noticed the same on almost all of the smaller capacity diesel engines that I have driven. Guess this is normal and is not a problem.

Reasons I Imagined up : Resistance of the Engine (Inertia isn't it ? ), higher torque of the diesel engine, ECU characteristics
Diesel combustion is not like petrol so there is a lag between the throttle and the power output.

I have also found unlike petrol engines, In diesel engines this jerk is more

TRY THIS !! Instead of suddenly lifting off the your foot a gradual lifting causes less/no jerking.

Friends - I am about to take delivery of Figo Titanium D for my dad on this sunday. Only accessory I am looking for is seat covers. Yesterday went for pre regn PDI and saw Ford vinyl seat covers (the black ones). Dealership is asking 3,800 for those. I just wanted to check if any members has used them and their experience. Would you recommend to go for it or go to an accessory shop for more choices.

May be it's already discussed in this thread, but it's a long thread. Sorry could not go through all pages, so seeking your advise.

Many thanks in advance.
