  1. Thanks winner48, very rightly suggested for Grand Vitara.. ops its petrol. I am eagerly waiting for Fortuner. Captiva noooooo its from GM. I have owned Corsa and Optra from GM and both the cars started eating money like anything after doing 50000 kms only.
  2. I have owned Mahindra Scorpio and Innova thereafter. I was very much satisfied with these two. But when I needed a Upgradation, I bought a Ford Endeavour last year, owing it is nothing less than a nightmare. The vehicle is very very bumpy, has very unsafe braking, high cost of maintence and worst than all service response of Ford. Any now I know I have to part with atleast 5 L when I will sell it. That a very small amount for a big mistake I have made by buying a FORD. I have made up my mind for that. I have a average running of 5000 km/month and want a replacement upto 20 lakhs preferable Diesel. Which SUV I should buy.
  3. Sanjay, Nothing New Dude, by buying a Ford vehicle you have commiteed the same mistake as I did. I bought a Endeavour last year and my experience is same as yours. FORD MEANS HIGH MAINTENENCE, ZERO CUSTOMER RESPONSE AND VERY LOW RESALE.
  4. One of my relatives in US has told me that people there has stopped purchasing GM cars. Nearly 300 showrooms of company are likely to close. In India company has always betrayed its customers with high cost of maintenence and low resale
  5. Bornfree, Endy is not atall a SUV, if only high ground clearence is an essence of SUV then it is. Endy, is worse on bad roads, it goes out of control if you are at more than 20kmh on even a slightly rough road. And endy is not a budget SUV, if you call it a budget SUV then where will you place Tata Safari, Scorpio or Bolero
  6. Well said raj, Scorpio too has similar problem. Only thing which makes difference is what we expect from a premium SUV from Ford.
  7. Thanks smokin, The vehicle is not there on ford.com
  8. You have not discussed about resale. I bought Fiesta Diesel SXi for 8L plus. and being unsatisfied with performance parted within one year for 5.25L. Ford has always failed in delivering quality and service. Honda means Quality always.
  9. All visiting Forum members don't forget to post pics of latest one.
  10. All the suffering car owners. We should, through this forum and through ACI should fight, why the Indian market is offered outdated models. Ford Endeavour is no where visible on Ford's International website. There should be minimum feature specifications for a car in Luxury Segments like Automatic Climate Controls etc. Ford is offering it's top of the line SUV expedition for US$35000 why we are offered a vehicle, which is not even a proper SUV for same price.

  11. I must congratulate all for being active forum member. well said I have would have tested the vehicle before buying. In fact I did, the good driving of vehicle impressed me. The most disappinting experience for me is after sale response of the FORD and its dealer. The defects I am telling them, they have even failed to observe them or not accepting. I have spend hell of amount on purchase of vehicle, what I am getting in 15L dosen't worth. I own a Innova also. when I compare it with Innove they say we cannot compare Endy with Innova, because they call it a MUV not SUV, perhaps ford understand that Innova is Far better buy. Infact if I compare the Innova is much much better SUV than Endy. On my Ist tyre change I replaced Innova tyres with all terrain Scorpio tyres, that really converted it into a SUV with better ground clearence and better fuel economy. Infact Innova has a far better suspension and ride quality even on roughest of Roads. Doing 140000 kms my Innova's suspension is just perfect with only one front shoker change. After sale service of TOYOTA is excellant. So every one beware of FORD.
  12. Brake pads costs around 3500 per set. The very first paid servive at 30000 costed around 6500 to me. Other problems I face are - Sitting is very low and rear seat can house only 2. The 3rd row is meant for children upto 10 years only or pets of course. Suspension besides being rough is too noisy on bumps. On rough road you have to drive very slow other wise its too bumpy and difficult to manover. The most horrible part of driving is in rains. As the front trye goes in any water filled pothole the car spits on itself, the water comes on windscreen making driver absolutely blind and you have to apply sudden brakes. The differncial has a nosie like it use to be there in Premier Padmini (Fiat), in new age car I have seen it in Endeavour only.
  13. Your observations are really appreciable. GM cars too are very high on maintenence, they are not atall trliable. I own a Optra and a corsa sail too. Both of them are more demanding at just 50000 kms then Innova at 140000 kms.
  14. Ride is one major problem. The car has other problems too like very frequent wear of Brakes- They suggest brake pad change at every 20000 kms and brake disc change at every 30000kms. Engine and pickup of vehicle is good and Brakes are not responsive to take on the momentum generated by kind of heavy beast like endy.
