Foulty clutch---don't buy ecosport

I am Dr.R choudhury. I have bought the all new Ecosport on 5th off december 2017. Since my first drive I have been facing a hard clutch issue. The clutch pushes the foot so hard while in slow drive (in traffic) that my foot started to hurt real bad. Have complaint about the same during my first servicing when the service people told that its a hydraulic clutch so its supposed to be like that.They did some adjustments in clutch but it didn't help. Again on 5th of march they took my car after my repeat complaint and changed the entire clutch system. This time the clutch pressure is little better but it still hurts when driven in slow traffic. As a DOCTOR -THE MEDICAL ASPECT:
A continuous pressure exerted on foot by clutch may lead to PLANTAR FASCIITIS (Plantar fasciitis is a disorder that results in pain in the heel and bottom of the foot.) The constant pressure of pushing on a tough clutch or accelerator puts stress on the muscles, joints and tendons of your feet and ankles. Over time, this pain can spread to your knees, hips and back. I myself facing this issues and sometime regret buying the car. I would ask FORD INDIA to take immediate action against the matter so that we may avoid legal affairs as per as consumer?s health is concerned. PS: I have few more doctor colleagues who are facing the same problem and are ready to certify the health hazard.

I had the same issue with my ecosport clutch. However Ford claimed that it is a part that is not covered under warranty. This is one serious issue which Ford needs to fix. If they dont , then of course customers have many many options in days to come..

    My Eco 2 years old with 10.000 on miles clutch burnt out. All my fault said Ford and I had to pay them £650 to get it back. I’m appalled and shocked. But you have no support. You pay them and that’s service. I’ve driven for 40 years and no car clutch has ever been thrown at me. Stay away from Ford!!

          Ford Ecosport is a very comfortable car for a small family and security and safety are also good. This car is value for money.
