No mine is 2014 August batch, diesel. No recalls for my model.

Dear Arindam Bayya,

Thanks a lot. I drove on the highways yesterday, sometimes in cruise control mode (set speed around 100 to 110 km). The mileage is around 16.2 km/l. I was highly satisfied that the car had great handling sense and much better than my i20 (which returned 16 km/l too on highways).

My cousin wanted to get Brezza, I convinced him to buy Ecosport. We went to test drove the BS6 diesel Ecosport Saturday and pretty impressed by the overall driving behavior, NVH(Surprised) and the TD car had 1400 kms on ODO. Overall we were satisfied except the fact that Ford messed up big time with features shuffling between variants!

There is a Thunder Pack, Sports Pack and Titanium+ with 6 airbags is not top-end but the Titanium+ with Sports pack is the top variant, as mentioned by SA and as seen in brochure comparing features! We are royally confused and left the showroom. Initially decided to go ahead with Titanium as Titanium+ OTR came around 13.8L whereas Titanium costed 11.35L and except 6 airbags I don't see any useful feature. Again 11.35L was 2L above his budget and he is in decision mode. What do you guys suggest? Go with Titanium or go with Aspire D top-end?

Sunroof, Sync3, Auto-dimming IRVM are the major. Forgot the others as I have left the spec sheet at home.

Guys, I want to disconnect the battery of my Ecoboost but was wondering if I could just pull the main fuse out?
