Thanks Dude. Had to bargain hard and I believe this just came in time before the Maruti fiasco else Harpreet Ford might not have relented.

I totally went by the Ford SA advise by not going above 100. BTW, today morning, the white Dove has again spread its wings for another Road Trip to Chandigarh.

Congrats Shantanu on your new purchase. I have the same color and variant . You really are putting your diesel purchase to good use with all the road trips. Enjoy the car and safe driving.

Thanks a lot buddy! Visited to FASS today & it was found that the bolt for one of the nuts that connects this catalytic converter to the exhaust pipe was not there. The FASS replaced the nut & bolt FOC, but I am seriously shocked as to how this could have happened. I am sure there was no stone hit or anything of that sort. I am planning to write an email to Ford seeking an explanation on this & see what they have to say.

Also, I see a lot of rust on the catalytic converter, is that normal? I just rechecked with your car's picture, & it has way lesser rust.

Buddy, once again, special thanks to you for taking the pains in trying to help me out.

Welcome! Its not a pain at all to help out each other.
Mine is just one and half month old baby and hence no rust. Other long time owners has to say about rusting over this area.

Thank you Parthasarathi i will ask them to suggest a good SA.only problem is the distance from my place in Whitefield to Cauvery Ford service center which is in Magadi road

I bought my car from Cauvery Ford in June'12. Since my house is in JC Nagar, I thought of servicing at Metro Ford in Lingarajapuram.

Who is better in terms of good and faithful servicing, Cauvery Ford or Metro Ford ?

Hi lionell,
That light is for the rear fog lamp. In India its not mandated to have rear fog lamp so its being removed. For some reason may be for cost cutting by not changing the cluster s/w the tell tale sign still remains.

When I rotate the dial clockwise and pull it out, it switches on the headlamps and fogs. Now the respective icons light up on the dashboard for them in green. I noticed that there is one more pull out step in the dial and this lights up a yellow icon. Which is a mirror of the fog light icon. Could someone shed some "light" on what this icon is for.

I was reading about PUC certificate on the vento thread. Figo petrol owners, how many days interval do we need to get the PUC certificate done? My car is 2years old now. So do I need to get the testing done or is it after a specific time period? In Bangalore where does one get it done?

Danke

This is being discussed in the following threadhttp://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...e-program.html

I guess ford is informing customers in batches so as to avoid a mad rush!!

Here you go, http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modify...neral-oil.html (ARTICLE: Synthetic oil vs Mineral oil). That one will sort out the confusion regarding engine oil :-).

Also just curious, why are you taking your car @12k for 2nd service. It must have done @10k ? I am not sure if Ford A.S.S gonna void your warranty for this reason, those people are waiting to get something to void warranty. Feels likes its their priority job.

Well let me think, the first one happened at 1200 KM, service interval is 10K Km so it makes it 11200 KM. Ok i will call up these guys to findout when i should come. I am almost 11K km now.
