  1. FIgo Tdci 2012 Long term review

    No "Vikky1971",,,,i have got the gear shifting problem after driving 1.91 LAKH KM only,,, ,,,so no issues with my driving skills what do you mean by not-technical!!!!!
  2. 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 please share your long term review on figos
