And for a total OT, the wooden interiors on the Endeavour are a problem to maintain. The veneer peels off after a while and it costs Rs. 25K to replace the veneer window switches!!

I'm looking for ways to get them re-veneered. Any ideas lads?
Just go to your ford showroom and ask for goodwill warranty on them. According to the ford showroom i visit they say almost every endeavour including mine has the wooden panel problem, Getting them all replaced under goodwill warranty.

Hi All, i am planning to buy a used Endeavour 2010 MT model, will it be a good decision? I mean in terms of reliability and cost of ownership. I want to use this vehicle for long road trips and trips to mountains.

Every older endevour has this problem, including mine. They quoted a bomb at the dealer so I removed all the bits, unscrewed the power window switches off them and got it painted in wood finish. You can also get 3M to apply carbon fibre stickering, if you don't want wood finish.

The Endy has always been a reliable SUV but maintenance has been and will be on the higher side. However, if you get a very good deal, it will make up for the costs.

However, it is not the best vehicle for long trips due to its bouncy suspension and low set seats and is not the best vehicle for the mountains due to its high turning radius and a long bonnet that restricts visibility, even with a driver of average height behind the wheel.

I'm planning to get a 2010 Endy and this thread has been really helpful in educating me. Going for test drive tomorrow, apparently the car comes "loaded with features". I now know they are a part of standard accessories.

Thanks a ton for the write up !

Months after when we booked a AT for my friend, we finally got tried of not receiving a firm date for delivery of the vehicle. We cancelled the booking couple of weeks back. After owning the first and second generation Endeavour, my friend finally bought the new Innova.

Sad, Ford lost a loyal customer by not responding to his needs and queries. Someone should explain to them "All customers are not equal", a repeat customer is more valuable then a first time one.

The experience of buying the Innova was painless and straight forward. Paid in full and took delivery in a week. That too because my friend wanted the car on a particular date, else it would have been 3 working days! Quite a contrast from Ford's way of doing things. Pains me as I am a Ford fan.
