  • Expert Hi,

    It looks like accident repaired car . Check history of car thoroughly , if required get it inspected by a mechanic. If its in good condition , its worth buying and also you can try with CNG latter.

  • Expert Hi,
    Ikon is a reliable car .There are no much troubles with maintenance but only thing is number of dealers service center is less hence time for service is more.

  • hi, i would like to add a few words shiva shanker said, ford is a reliable car, but my experience has been that, after 6 years,you are bound to have maitanence costs to be borne.and ford is a car which cannot do with the spares available in the open market(its very difficult to find or you don't find o.e spares in the market)hence you will have to take the car to the dealer where both the spares & labour is very high. secondly,1.6 is known to be unsuccessful with gas conversion. i have seen multiple cases of problems springing up with gas run cars.
    so, in my opinion, 1.6 is not a good buy if you have gas in mind. and as most of them have mentioned, get the car throughly checked before buying it. 1.6 is a fantastic car to drive.truely a josh machine. i have throughly enjoyed it for 4 years.

  • Dear Friend,
    Befor you buy old sedan cars think a lot on the maintenance costs. Usually it is observed that Ford cars in India are very high in maintenance costs. Rest choice is left to you. It is better to buy an Esteem and convert to gas.
