Dear team, I own Ford Figo and have ground clearance problems. Can i raise the issue in any forums about the ground clearance issue. I did not get a good feed back from Ford India(where they asked to drive carefully in bad roads). With just 4 passenger in the car, the bottom of the car scrapes the bumpers and potholes of reasonable size itself Almost most of customers have posted the same problem in websites too. Pl guide me of any good forum to take up this issue of ground clearance problem in Ford Figo and have a solution to existing and prospective customers WANTED TO KNOW IF FORD INDIA IS LOOKING INTO THIS GROUND CLEARANCE ISSUE AND GIVE SOME SOLUTION?

Gd clearance remains a pain in most of the Indian cars. Only Mahendra Bollero/Scorpio & other SUVs have good clearance.Our museum car Amby had good clearance not Fiat.
Gd clearance needs attention fm Car design stage and not as after mkt modification. Bigger wheels and shock absorbers cant be mounted after mkt as mod.Look at Bugatti car the costliest & ugliest car one can ever think of.God bless designers with more wisdom on Gd clearance. Bye!

Hi,
Mr Evans has given the exact situation about ground clearances. The only remedy to overcome ground clearance problem to some extent is to go for modification of suspension system.Manufactureres wont help in this regard.

Use 185/70 R14 tires that it will increase the ground clearance. No more under-scrapping even with 4 people and full-load in the trunk.
