Good car but maintenance too expensive!

By anil on 20 June 2009

ride comfort 7/10 - ford has tried hard to save money on the insulation provided to keep the cabin silent .. while the plastics and other visible elements are rigid and built to last (some knobs and switches hav ridiculously huge travel and play )... result being engine seems noisy at high revvs .. while it is the same mill detuned as it is found in fiesta tdci ..!! the car does score high in engine refinement but NVH levels are not that good as found in fiesta. while suspension setup is good and absorbs most pits on our roads well .

maintenance - 4/10 ford guys loose their guts when it comes to customer care .. the parts are expensive .. the guys are arrogant not al of them but most of them are found alike ..remember ford dsnt hav wide spread after sales chain as maruti or tata

mileage - 7/10 it return pretty good 18 on highways and decent 14 in city (thanx to the tall ratio transmission) still the dezire at 75ps and 190Nm torque sounds much efficient .)dnt forget the ikon tdci is 68ps and at 160 Nm torque which is good as it is but bit lower than the dezire

resale - 6/10 fords are heavy on maintainability while it comes to indian roads thier suspension overhaul may cost way too much as compared to tata indigo or swift .. result being a low resale value but still far better than the tatas atleast u will hav lot of guys intrested to buy a second hand ford diesel .. which is not the case with tata
