dear naveen,

ford ikon is a fantastic car if you are not worrying about the milage. as it is a guzzler. better way leave it.

Answer by Vikrant 09 September 2010

It's certainly not worth to invest in 2001 model ford ikon. It has the worst resale value, worst mileage, and high maintenance. Don't get fooled by the initial acceleration that it offers. Stay away from it and better think of Esteem or Accent.

Answer by Abhijit 09 September 2010

Please, dont go for a Ford Ikon as it has higher maintainance besides poor mileage. Go for the Ford Fiesta. I own one of them, and I am going to sell it as I am buying a Ford Figo. My car is 2007 model, Zxi Diesel, 40000kms done, mileage - 17.4kmpl with a/c. Cost Rs.525000. If interested, please contact - 09776544897

found on the road dead is what they call any old ford vehicles where they are born ,that too 2001 model be ready to change fuel pump motor every 15 days and ignition coil every month and if the ac is working till now then get the heater coil convertor serviced every two months ,rest the milage would be around 8 kms in city and u cannot fit a cng or lpg kit as it is not successful in a ford ikon otherwise the vehicle is very good.

I support all the guys quoted above. First of all check wether the km done is correct or not if it is incorrect Engine timing belat and all to be changed it will cost you about 20,000 so don't go for it.....

Expert`s comment:

Though its 2001 model, the usage is quite less and vehicle could be expected to be in good condition provided meter is tamperd or replaced.As a general rule used Accent would be better than Ikon of 2001 model.
