  1. Hi All, I have a 2013 EcoSport 1.5 TDCi which has clocked around 97,000 kms on the odo. Since the past couple of months it started giving white smoke for the first start of the day. I got it check at the authorised service centre and they performed a compression check on the engine and following were the readings found: Dry Wet 12:50 13.50 11 12 11:50 13 11 12.50 After this I made a top-up of the engine oil and started running the car. After 4,000 kms my engine oil was almost dried up and topped up on time because I was keeping an eye on the same. The service centre has given me an cost estimate of between ₹ 40,000 - ₹ 1,20,000. My only concern over here is, should I move forward with the repair, as the car is out of warranty. There are no other issues with car. Any expert opinions please. P.S: Sorry in advance for any typos or grammatical errors Thanks in advance.
  2. Hi, I think ABS plays an important role at times, I have experienced it personally with and without ABS. So believe me they are needful. So if you are thinking of keeping the car with you for 4-5years and maybe a little more than that, then you should definitely go for the vehicle with ABS+EBD and Airbags. According to me, you can also have a look at the next-gen Ford Figo Trend 1.2P Its a good car with an absolutely fantastic ASS. It has ABS+EBD, Airbags, Steering mounted controls etc. Ford cars are famous for the way they drive and handle. Have a test drive and I am sure you will love it. The on-road price should also lie somewhere around 6,50,000-6,60,000
  3. what i think is with each facelift honda is loosing on the cuts and curves(the sexiness that honda car's had to be precise)of the car and making the car look bulkier.
  4. The front end looks very much like a beefed up Celerio and the tail lamp resembles very much to the Nissan Terrano. Lets see what Maruti has to offer under the hood and will it be another game changer for Maruti or not..!
