Ford's New Small Car : Ford FIGO

Recommended Posts

I was thinking of doing this since I bought my Figo but was unable to do so. Dear friends, just fasten your seat belts and go through 6K plus kms ownership report of a FiGo TDCi Zxi !

Feista which will be quite costly except the body parts and cost of

servicing. Once people realise this then sales will start to tumble.

Proof being the Spare parts price list,
