Looks like this is COMMON issue in all latest(updated) Ford Figo Cars. We went to Chennai Ford today and checked all (updated) Figo cars. None of them able to play from USB. Even checked the car awaited for delivery. SA couldn't able to identify and resolve the issues. They may take this to Ford asap it seems. Also, it limited to 2 GB only it seems.

OOPS!!! Finally got the conclusion of Figo USB support. It supports upto 8GB. But only plays this specification drives : V165W BU CE FC . Everything seems fine now. Thanks for all your suggestions.

SAs at Lathangi do not usually do this at the 20k service. Happened to me and have heard the same from atleast 3 other people.
I did the 20K service yesterday. As per LAthangi, they will "top up" break fluid, I hope they have done it. Finally, my cost came to 4.5 K, so their initial figure of 2.5 K was way off the mark ! May be they quoted a figure which does not include things like wheel balancing and alignment. In my case, alignment could not be done as their machine was not working, wheel balancing done. Also, one of my rear mud flaps was missing and they told I will need to buy a pair and I did that. Regular things like engine oil , air filter, oil filer, wash liquid pouch were changed. I see some fluid which they used 100 ml only, so I guess that is the break fluid top up.

Wheel balancing and alignment would cost 750/- (450+300) @Ford SS. Without balancing and aligment the amount should have been around 3.5 to 3.7K.

I did my 20K service a couple of weeks ago, and I had to pay 3.6K. The difference is that mine is a Petrol version. And yes, it included wheel balancing and alignment.

from this thread, its evident that the difference between petrol and diesel service costs is less. Appreciate if you can post the break up of your bill here.

I had emailed Cauvery Ford, Mangalore regarding the high labour charge. Subsequently last week I had two small things to be done on the car. Both were done free of cost, both labour and materials. . Happy to see they are responsive. The bonnet puller had got cut which had to be changed. Also a stud(bolt) in the right rear wheel had to be changed.

I have a Feb 11 model Figo Ti Di which has run around 15k km. I wont be using the car for the next 10-12 months as I will be traveling abroad. My dad already has another car and does not want to use it. Will it be a good idea to to keep it parked for such a long duration? Any drawbacks? Even if my father agrees to use it, it will be very minimum..might be 200km/month. Which is a better option?

There is a long term parking thread here http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...dos-donts.html (Long-term Parking: Do's and Don'ts)

Quite a few good things discussed there.

Bottomline - if your father can driver it 200km/month that is good enough to keep the car in good shape, and much much better than just leaving it on its own. But even if you have to leave it standing, take a few precautions and it should be smooth sailing.
