Am too sure but here is my impression:
- The market price/ or value for car is pretty good.
- It serves the purpose for size, space and its utility at the midsized level.
- Availability of parts shld not be a problem - Ford is coming more and more into India, although depending on market trends towards smaller cars, parts may become a little difficult.
- Car maintenance I'd say is the biggest issue - it is a Ford !!! Period. On a comparitive scale, Ford is only good compared to Tata Indica, Indigo etc, but definitely more cumbersome compared to Hondas, Toyotas etc.
- It also depends on how you drive it. Keep the throttle low and make smooth maneuvers and your car shld be fine.
- I would not suggest a 9 year old Ford Ikon overall

Hope this helps

It will be a good option to go for Ikon. Maintenance will be of average and should be manageable with reduction in spares costs of Ikon.Please make sure the car is in good condition.
