FIgo Tdci 2012 Long term review

3 posts in this topic

Friends

i would like to share my review on Figo 2012 Tdci 

2012 Jun 1st week , i have decided to buy Ritz ,but my wife didnt like the rear  concave polygon shape ,, at the same time Maruthi has ended gen1 dzire 

after some research finallly i booked Figo Exi with fog lams ,ford's Music system,wheel caps , mats etc ,total cost 6.12L

till now its clocked 1.93L KM on ODO

19 regular maintenance ( every 10K) has been completed at VIbrant/Fortune ford ,Hyderabad
other than 19, there were another 15+ visits to service centers due to failures
after 1.9L KM , i was curious to know how much did i spent on this car and the answer is ~2L INR

last week while driving from my home place , 1st and 2nd gears were not engaging
i have to move the car in 3rd and move to 2nd ( for pickup) then 3rd,4th,5th 
after 2 days , 1st and 2nd completely blocked and i cant even move from 3rd to 2nd/1st
managed to go to FSS in 3rd gear and they did some fix ( adjusting gear /shift cable) ,but no luck
Finally they have opened gear box and quote for overhaul was 45k

so total money spent on this car till 1.93L KM is ~2.5Lacks,,,,,,,

Good things:
1. Never had a downtime  and never left us on roads 
2. only one incident when engin light warns , immideatley turned AC off and waitied for 30 mins and started again without AC - absolutely no downtime
3. 1.93L KM with almost 1.80L KM on AC 
4. 3rd set of tyres running now ( each set changed at  ~ 65KM )
5. stability on Highways 

Bad things:
1. Maintenance sees to be high
2. same part will fail for multiple times 
3. we can get few parts for 75% less price outside market with same brand 
   Example: non-ABS wheel bearings , SKF price is 700, the same SKF brand is being used at FSS for 3000
4. low ground clearance ,bad hits at speed breakers
5.  Some times engine cries  , for some unknown reason 

Now What next:

1. plan is to change Engine oil for every 5K ( it may increase the engine life)
2. for non-engine/non-gearbox related work ,strictly at non-FSS
3. what ever might be the case ,stick to ford engine oil only
4. i hope engine can go for another 1L easily

@Narasimha your review of the Figo car isn't technical. When you drive your car do you keep your left hand on the gear knob, most of the time ?
