Cars Q&A

Hi, I am planning to buy a Sedan withinh the Range of 6-7.5 Lakhs. I have shortlisted the following cars Ford Fiesta,Fiat Linea. In terms of after sales service,driving experience,mileage which is an good option. I am looking for an Petrol Variant. Thanks, Anil

Hello Kumar- After Sales will be slightly better with Fiat, since they now have a tata tie up, which gives them better all india coverage. In terms of after sales service experience, Ford will be more professional, since they have more sedan customers. Driving experience - undoubtedly, ford fiesta is the king - no one beats ford fiesta on this front. Mileage - fiat anticipated to be slightly better since the engine is not tuned for outright driving exhilaration. Mileage on ford should be 9-10 in the city and linea about 10-11. However, ford justifies the same with just the driving thrill.

In the range mentioned, the Linea Active would be better selection.

Hello please dont buy ford because it causes you a lot of stress i own a ford ikon just 10 months old willing to sell it causes

Answer by Vishveshwaran 11 November 2009

It is true that the Ford Ikon has caused a lot of people disappointment, but the Fiesta is in a different league altogether. It is well built, very efficient, and an absolute pleasure to drive. With the money you are spending, you should drive all the cars you are considering, before something "clicks" for you! Enjoy.

i think u should go for newly lauched sx4...its good looking car...good engine..... best after sales service as compared to linea and ford....more space than fiesta..... linea is a fiat product so cannot be sure of future.... sx4 is the best car in this segment.,....

Thanks Everyone for the replies.
I have shorlisted Ford Fiesta 1.6ZXi Limited edition which I am getting for 7.5Lakhs. Did not check Linea but read some reviews about linea and I felt not to go ahead with it.

Answer by Anil 11 November 2009

Answer by Abhishek 11 November 2009

Go for ford fiesta, because long live engine and more space than that of fiat linea.

Answer by Rajesh 11 November 2009

Nothing touches the linea in this price range,not the fiesta nor the sx4.the linea looks the hottest,drives like a proper big car,is available at an amazing mouth-watering price.Just go in for it with ur eyes closed.

Answer by Rohit 11 November 2009

Ford Fiesta is better in the range with trouble free maintenance, more space and for enjoying driving pleasure.
Petrol version is also good.
I am having Ford Fiesta diesel version which I am enjoying
during driving.

hi, my name is chaitanya. well, u should also give a look at the maruti SX4. its a nice car in terms of its engine. u can stick with fiat too. thinking if Ford is not going to be a very good option cause Ford has been pretty sad with its services in the past. also i would suggest u to pick up a few magazines of Over Drive, that will give u a good hint about all cars....
happy driving.....
heyy...consider Honda.. Honda is really a very cool car. my favourite.

Answer by Chaitanya 11 November 2009

Hi, I own both the Linea emotion DSL and a Ford Fiesta. the linea dissapointingly has got some major quality issues which is not hepled at all by poor service back up of their Dealers,in this case it is K.B.Motors, Kolkata.

the Fiesta has excellent quality,driving pleasure is fantastic and their Dealers are efficient.

Answer by Gopal K Jaidka 11 November 2009

Dear Mr. Anil
I strongly support your decision .
Go ahead with Ford Fiesta petrol.
Its really a pleasure to drive.
I am using Fiesta 1.6 Petrol from last 4 yrs.
No issues at all.
Ya..only service may be a problem if u are in a town where Ford dealership is not available.
Anyway.. its mere a pride to own a ford. Welcome to Ford Family.
