Delivery experience was not good.

Will surely post some pics & update more about my exp, but why create a new thread.

MODS - surely can help by changing the title of the thread ??

Congrats, Manish!

In the area for posting you have the picture of a tree on the top just 3 buttons left of the smiley ikon. Click on that and give the URL of your image. It should get posted. Hope this helps

I have some inputs on my Figo:

1. No ZXi badging anywhere in the car !!

2. No Temp gauge on the speedometer, so dont know when the car has achieved it normal heat !!

3. Cannot connect with blue tooth in the car. I tried once & the music system showed my name "MANISH" , & then shows Not connected.

4. Earlier ZXI version used to have Eletrically adjustable ORVM, driver seat height adjust, rear wiper which is missing from the current version

5. I am confused about the headlight, how to use dipper ?? 

6. The Fog light area is so big that whenever you see the car from the front you miss the fog lamps & the car gives a dull look. I am planning to get fog lamps from outside accessories shop

I think the badging was there in the earlier models but now FORD seem to be going the VW way where no variant badges are available on the car.

The headlight controls are on the opposite side. Apart from that everything else remains same.

Avoid garware if possible. Go for 3M, LLumar and the like. Though they are expensive, they are worth it. LLumar sunfilm with 50% VLT and great heat rejection costs less than 3k.

For a small difference in price, you can get the entry level Llumar for the windows. Front windshield is costlier though. With LLumar, I have experienced better heat rejection and quality of films. On paper things may be different, but in real life, I would prefer better films than garware. Though its costlier, its a better option. I got Garware on my SX4 which is crap compared to my other cars. Also, I would not want to keep changing the sunfilms. The garware ones have got scratched badly, heat rejection is average or poor. No warranty too. Thats why I told you to stay away.

Vinod,

i am not too sure about Rs. 1200.00 for fog light since I got Rs. 1900 from another accessories shop. May be the 1st one didnt know the price exactly. Actually the woner was not there in the shop & only manager was there in the shop.

But Rs. 3000 is quite costly. you will definately get a better deal if you get it from outside.

Whats the on road price you are getting for LXI variant ??

Hey,

Today i got llumar sun films for the windscreen (Rs. 3000) & windows (Rs. 1800) alongwith mud flaps (Rs. 300).

I also ordered for front fog lamps ( Rs. 1800) but later on cancelled it because they were putting s small switch under the steering wheel (where the steering adjustment lever is located) which I didnt like. I asked them to put the switch on the dashboard next to the de-fogger switch which they couldnt.

where can I find an original swicth for the fog lamps ?

Arnv,

After the 1st 2500 kms , its service intervals is 10k kms.

I was blown away by the ASS of Ford. Its very very good. The service centre lady kept calling me from 45 days from the date of purchase to remind the for the car service. whereas the it was 75 days from the date of invoice.

Even when the car went to the srvice centre, the person was quote polite & explained me everything in detail

He also insisted to get the under body rust coating, body polishing etc done.

Overall, very good experience with my Figo now.

Hey friends,

Last week I faced a unique problem with my Figo which I never came across with any of teh cars.

One evening the A.C blower suddenly stopped working. I tried very hard but could not trace the problem.  I had to send the car to the service centre the next day & they said that due to mud clogging beneath the car the blower stopped working. I was stumped. Incidently a day before  I had been to a place where there was a lot of mud.

Service centre ppl cleaned the mud within 15-20 minutes & charged me Rs. 220 as service charges + tax. A.C is working fine  now !! 

But is it possible ?? Is there any way mud could have entered & block the path of the A.C blower ??

Also, it has now run 7500 kms & the engine oil has turned coal black. should I wait for 10K kms or get the service done immediately ??
