I think you should not go for used ford cars as they have very high maintenance cost. And average of 1.6 is generally low around 9-10.

You have not mentioned if its a diesel or a petrol version. If it is petrol version just forget it. Diesel 1.8 Zxi ikon is the best in the lot. I owned one for 2 years. On highways (made a RT to Bangalore from Hyd) - it gave 20 plus km to a litre, in the city 12 -14 kms/litre

Answer by Vahid 07 July 2009

Hello there,

Icon basically as such is a good performing vehicle provided maintained well. There's hardly any maintenance except for the fuel consumption / mileage. For a 1.3 flair, mileage varying anything between 9 kms to 11.5 kms within city limits & on highways anything between 11 to 14kms should be great. Since you are planning for 1.6, milage should be slightly less as the power is more. Ideally should vary a 1-2 kms compared to that off 1.3 flair, subject to engine condition. Also note, that these are designed to perfrom with Air Conditioners. So you should not be worrying much about the fuel consumption with A/c on. As the drop in mileage is bear minimum. Nothing more than a kilometer. Apart these facts, there aren't any issues as for I've noticed. Besides service is done every 20,000 kms / 6 months at Ford service centers. Oil top up along with replacement of filters are done once a year or as and when required.. So the service/maintenance expenses should be arround Rs.5000/- per annum It's almost 3 years ever since i have been using. Honestly speaking am happy with the performance.. If at all you are more cautious about mileage, I would then strongly recommend you to consider the new Ford 1.4 Flair (Deisel version). This new Deisel version has a great engine same as fiesta and performance is also simply fabulous. Hope this feedback to be fine.

Expert`s comment:

The Ikon 1.6 has good overall performance including comfort in ride. The frequency of maintenance is low but cost of spares will be on higher side compared to Maruti cars.These days there is cut in price of spares of Ford cars henceIt will be a worthy selection at around 1.8 to 2.1 lac depending upon condition.
