A well maintained car with clean interiors having a good neat and clean seat cover, clean floor mats, a covered steering wheel, a well maintained AC and glitch free windows is surely going to make a great impression. A perfume is a very good idea to deck up the aesthetic factor as well. Visit here

Answer by Nitin Patidar 12 December 2016

I test drove all the models of fordecosport (in pune, on 24th Dec 2016). The clutch was too hard in some diesel/petrol models. In some models it was little less hard. It pushes your foot backwards really really hard. you can injure your knee or have pain in your ankle. Be careful. Therefore, there was no question of buying it.

Answer by Manoj 09 September 2018

Already facing knee pain due to hard clutch of ecosport. Its just 11k km. I have been facing hard clutch ever since I bought the vehicle but now it started hurting knee and ankle

Answer by Santosh 10 October 2018

Im also facing the same issue. The clutch is really hard and even after complaining to Ford service centers they are not ready to accept that there is a serious issue.
I had complained at the time of 2nd regular servicing during July 2018. However, the technical team didnt acknowledge and the issue was not resolved.

In order to explain for more clarity, I visited the workshop of Sequel Ford during servicing. I checked and demonstrated the clutch in various Ecosport vehicles including the latest model. I explained that the clutch in latest model is very soft to my liking and comfort and asked them to make adjustments or calibrate the clutch in my vehicle also to be like that.

This was acknowledged by Ford technical team that I was right. However, they expressed their inability to do anything about it. They stated that the same cannot be calibrated.

I checked if anyone else is facing the same issue and found that Internet is flooded with such issues which Im facing.
Further, to note that Ford South Africa has recalled Ecosports for clutch problems. However, no action yet by Ford India.

Answer by Satyajit Pujari 06 June 2019

i have a ford ecosport 2014 diesel model, the clutch is so hard and pushing back, that it was hurting my knees, when i approached the service centre, they said i have to replace the complete clutch system. When i asked to feel similar ecosport vehicles clutch, they refused, after spending 25k now i am back to feeling pain in the knee, it is 75 percent hard as the previous one. Now they are saying the clutch system is hydraulic system and nothing much they could do about it. what a cheat ford is, this will be my last car with them.

Answer by Shashank Vishwakarma 11 November 2019

Am facing the same issue with my Ecosport 2016 diesel. However, the behaviour of the clutch is rather erratic. On some days its very hard and snaps back at me with full force, while on other days its tolerable. Recently I got my clutch bled at the local Ford service station. That process did give some respite for a few months. However, the problem is back and I think I will have to go for the bleeding again.
