Are Ford cars really expensive to maintain. That's what everyone believes, this is all thanks to past experience in terms of service cost of earlier Ford cars like; Ikon, Escorts etc.


Are Ford cars expensive to maintain, I am planning to buy Ford Figo Diesel.


Yes, Ford maintenance could be expensive when compared to a Maruti or a Hyundai, but may not be very expensive when compared to a Toyota or some other new car companies servicing cost.

I think maintenance costs today are of little consequence, mainly because with technology having improved so much that even so called high maintenance diesel cars do not require major servicing support. All one has to do is to be religious in terms of getting your car serviced as per manufacturer prescribed service schedule.

Add to this the fact that most manufacturer offer 3 year service package at reasonable prices, along with this if you  buy the extended warranty for  3rd and 4th year , you should have no major maintenance cost or issues

Go for Figo its a great solid buy.

VISITOR                                                              what is your personal opinion         


AGENT                                                                maintenance is in control and Ford is working hard in bringing down the servicing cost      


AGENT                                                                Ford cars are fun to drive...diesel hardly feels diesel           


AGENT                                                                personally quite likes their cars      


VISITOR                                                              I’m planning for petrol        


AGENT                                                                low resale and low service penetration are challenges       


VISITOR                                                              not diesel 


VISITOR                                                              rite               


AGENT                                                                petrol too is good drive which is what Ford brand stands for however petrol does not score highly on mileage                                        


AGENT                                                                which city friend    


VISITOR                                                              Pune           


AGENT                                                                if alright with negatives go ahead with Figo              


AGENT                                                                it is competitive package amongst options


VISITOR                                                              this is my first car, so don't want to end with bad choice     


AGENT                                                                actually for first car we normally recommend buyers to stick to Maruti or Hyundai


AGENT                                                                which have good cost control overall easy availability and decent resale   


VISITOR                                                              so should I change my plan then?  


VISITOR                                                              and thing for Maruti or Hyundai?   


AGENT                                                                Ford first car unless you really love everything can be reconsidered             


VISITOR                                                              I liked the car and more over my usage is just once or twice in a week         


AGENT                                                                then go for it....it's a good driver’s car and decent space and styling              


AGENT                                                                it's not that first time buyers never buy Ford ??        


VISITOR                                                              ok 


AGENT                                                                we suggest you go and drive swift grand i10 and Figo back to back and go for the one you enjoy the most                                              


AGENT                                                                whichever you buy please take zero depreciation insurance add on to regular insurance for peace of mind in case of accident claims

AGENT                                                                don't worry. Ford is also capable brand...if you like it more go for it...          


VISITOR                                                              have taken test drive           


VISITOR                                                              and liked Ford         


VISITOR                                                              im more concerned with Ford tend variant               


AGENT                                                                go for it then buddy             


AGENT                                                                see only negatives of Ford have shared already      


AGENT                                                                if those are fine then no problem at all       


AGENT                                                                on a rare case one gets odd experience but overall Figo is also good decision          


VISITOR                                                              have checked the online servicing charges and spare part cost and it fine not very costly affordable                                                       


VISITOR                                                              for claims 17kmph 


VISITOR                                                              at least we can except 15-16 kmph for petrol           


VISITOR                                                              in city          


AGENT                                                                deduct 25-30% from arai average   


VISITOR                                                              so how much will I get in city according to you        


AGENT                                                                we expect Figo to return 13-14        


AGENT                                                                though a lot depends on driving style and condition            


AGENT                                                                if less drive and city it might give lower too
