Guys planning to buy sxi give a look at the white colour. It looks more D class with the silver linings. Bad news is there is a 3 months waiting period for the same. So got to stick to violet.

Even I saw a White ZXi Duratorq yesterday night-The White Paint Finish is stunning.

I thought SXI came only in three colors - Platinum, Moondust Silver & Panther Black; White comes in ZXI I think

Thumbs down

Sound is not up to the mark. If you are enthusiast of quality music then you need to change HU as well as speakers. Sxi comes with 6 cd changer which is outdated. Speakers are not at all good.

best thing yogi is to compare emi's of different plan. This will bring out the hidden cost. Ford finance may provide discounts but then check the interest rates and compare the cost ie with discount and without discount. I have taken loan from SBI which is offering 7.25% for 5 year tenure.

Don't know what the Mumbai setup is but try and squeeze them for up to 5k free accessories - you could try getting the Teflon coating and underbody coating for free along with Floor mats & mudflaps.

3 week delivery sounds OK if its is a non-ABS version else be prepared for a month and a half - we had also been told 3 weeks, eventually took 6!

Hi,

Just though that this will help other team BHPians too in choosing car:

"Just bought Fiesta 1.4 TDCi, ZXI on Jan. 25, covered 450 kms in three days. I am totally satisfied with the car. Achieved 21kms per litre with Hi-speed diesel.Tough and solid car. Go for it. Cheers!" Pradeep Kumar, Gurgaon

"This car is very bad...it has suspension problem after 10K miles.... The interior quality is bad.....very low on mileage." Avinash Kedia

There are more owner reviews. you can check the source for it.

Just wanted to help so that you all also can make a good decision.

Thank you.

Somebody already rode 10K with their Fiesta! That's hard to believe.

Or maybe he is using it as a taxicab - only those guys can notch up such numbers within a month or two
