  1. Nice pics.... I think it is a pretty reliable and most-commonly used/accepted approach to calculate FE by tank-full-tank method..
  2. I have watched it and found it a good entertainer, the use of graphics was apt and role-play and storyline adequate to hold the audience..
  3. It's one of the best illustrations I have come across, great work mac-diesel.... it will help many new members trying to post pics... It has helped me tremendously as I was stuck up with resizing and had no hint how to do it??
  4. please tell where to resize the image.... rahulgupta31012010-06-03 11:04:25
  5. It's really fortunate that no major damage is done.... Please start the thread again if you can, so that there are some place where the figo owners can have a common discussion platform... btw I am still unable to post the pics....resizing and posting can's find...
  6. You need to just add this: link[\img] This will post your pic...!! waiting to see the chevy pic in delhi...
  7. @anuprav I too didn't found your thread. There is only one thread of figo ownership other than this which is started by amjustdreamer. How hard is your car hit? Are you planning to use any dent/scratch removers available in the market on it..
  8. As you initially selected polo, I assume that hatch is a better buy in your driving conditions and would suggest the following in the descending order of priority : 1) Ford Figo 1.4 Tdci : It's most practical hatch today in the market and is high on features that one can't overlook. The engine is powerful enough and is a highly fuel efficient unit. The car has that big-car like feel. It would easily fit in your budget and would also save you a lakh or two. Go for the top-end fully loaded version which has got dual airbags and ABS+EBD fitted. 2) Hyundai i20/ Fiat punto : Both are very good cars having individual strengths. i20 is a great looking hatch. It is loaded with features and the diesel version has good torque and grunt. It's resale and a.s.s is also better. while punto,indeed is a good product but our forum only has witnessed a good number of punto owners having problems with their newly purchased vehicles, so I would tend to stay away from Punto at the moment. 3) Honda jazz : As the car fits in your budget, is powerful(i-vtec is a silk-motor), will be frugal enough and has good looks(personal opinion). Moreover, the car is being offered at a huge discount(in the tune of 50k) as the initial price itself is exorbitant. Honda's reliability is another merit. rahulgupta31012010-06-03 09:58:52
  9. First of all, your review was very well laid out and could be understood by a layman. You are very much correct mac_diesel that the 1.4 Tdci engine is the same unit doing duty on the likes of fiesta, ikon diesel, fusion diesel and now the figo inherits it. It is a very-well proven unit and will return around 20 kmpl, after the run-in period and first service is done...
  10. Fiat is working-up it's ass to get back it's customers, which is very evident from the quality offered on linea, but it cant't afford to loose it's grip on the other models as the company has to revive the whole Fiat brand and not a single model gone bad kind of situation..
  11. The sub-standard quality of fuel has been a major hindrance and aversion factors for foreign manufacturers to bring in their latest technologies and engines due to their highly sensitive nature. Like Skoda, initially didn't offer their pump-deuse engines due to the poor quality of oil....
  12. The car looks an absolute stunner...engine options also seem to be healthy and at par with competition.. All skoda needs is to improve it's A.S.S... ARE YOU LISTENING SKODA ??? take care of your customers well....
  13. hey congrats on the buy.... I was facing the same problem while posting pics.. read the points given in forum help regarding posting pics.. first you need to make an account with imageshack.us and then proceed with posting.... The steps are given in the link : http://archive.autocarindia.com/autocar_forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=53
  14. FE of the diesel shall improve with the first service and more so as it is a diesel...may be you were too hard on the gas for the new engine... Give it little time and some km's on the odo for the engine to set-in....
  15. It's time MSIL and Hyundai, the two undisputed kings of Indian market, are facing stiff competition from likes of GM, Ford and Fiat. They should now price their offerings at par with them otherwise their meaty market share could take a considerable hit....
  16. hearty congrats to you..... please post some pics and the plus/minuses you are noticing.... enjoy your new set of wheels...!!1
  17. Thats something! I got my 1.4 zxi from Bhavana Ford ' date=' Navi Mumbai.Their service was no where close to what you got.It was strictly ok, not too good and not too bad.[/quote']How is your experience with the car and what's the FE you are getting currently ???
  18. We bought it from Harpreet Ford... from where did you bought yours?? It has clocked around 300km..no problems...veru happy with the overall product...!! what is yout model and colour?? post the details...
  19. The Number of dissatisfied customers of linea and punto are on a rise....just have glimpse of "the workshop" topics of problems regarding punto and linea....
