Look and Style : Simple and down market look  Comfort :  Quite Comfortable  Pickup : Great pick up ideal for highways  Mileage : The only USP Good mileage 18 on highways and 15 city  Best Features : Powerful AC Needs to improve : Service service service, brand value  Overall Experience  : The car gives great feeling in the beginning but start giving feeling of being cheated once dealer starts taking EMIs in form of service bills . too expensive spares, service charges. they just try to loot money from the customers by showing unwanted and unnecessary reasons.they want to replace everything on your cost and never give explanations.

    ya you are right.. I also have Fiesta 1.4EXi Limited Edition. i totally satisfied with my car.. But service & maintenance really costly.. They really want to loot their respected customeres. There is no any benefit to their Extended warranty also.

    One day when it was too cold to do it myself, I had a Ford dealer in Lexington Ky. change the oil in my non Ford car. (They advertised servicing all makes heavily). The price was fair , the level was perfect and they had a Motorcraft (Ford) filter in stock for it. My mother however has been cheated twice by a Chevy dealer on the Chevy she bought there. They did the work OK but the price was double what it should have been. BTW Extended Warranties have a bad reputation here as well, finding excuses not to pay for things.

  • Ganesh KUmar |21 Dec,2010 12:15:07 PM

    Any idea when is it planned to be launched?

  • anil kumar.T |28 Dec,2010 01:18:58 PM

    When will the ford fiesta 2011 model be launched and prices

  • m.s.sharma |13 Jan,2011 10:19:47 PM

    why can't ford co or management do something about people complaining about cost of spares & servicing? these complaints are there ever since the fiesta was launched & ford people don't react. if this the state of affair i will not be buying this car however good it may be.may go for Toyota etios or vw vento.

    This is the reason why these American Auto makers like FORD and GM are not acceptable even in their home ground. they are surviving on government subsidy there.

  • RAHUL BAKSHI |15 Jun,2011 03:38:20 PM

    I have been told by the sales people at Ford dealership (South City Ford, NOIDA) that Ford Fiesta Classic 1.6 LXi gives a city mileage of 14-15 kmpl (with AC on). The company's claim as per the ARAI guidelines is 20 kmpl, he said. Is it true? Awaiting comments, as I am going to take a test drive today!

    Sir i want to buy a 2006 nov. Medium model fiesta...their condition is ok. Tell me kya mein ise buy karu agar karu to kitne price tak. Plz suggest me .

  • Muthiah SUbramanian |23 Jan,2012 02:59:18 PM

    Yesterday i had the test drive of ALL NEW FIESTA, which is toooooo good... in all means and very much impressed of the system that they had planned and designed. But the review makes me to hold the decision of further proceedings.. Maintenance cost sooooooooo high... If that's true, it will not be worth of purchasing a high value car, as we will be penalized for every servicing... Will there be any clue to have this cleared as the sales person quoted in different manner, (since its his bread and butter)... HOW this can be vouched for a middle class buyer... Need some help by reviewers..

  • Vivek |22 Mar,2012 11:05:43 PM

    hey .. for all those who think ford spares are costly.. here is one news for u ppl... ford has adopted new strategy to reduce cost of spares..In its effort to reduce ownership costs, Ford has adopted the child parts approach. To give you an example of the child parts approach, if the solenoid of your starter fails, you do NOT need to change the entire starter assembly. Rather, Ford will sell you only the solenoid assembly (which will, of course, cost only a fraction of that for the entire starter). also its well evident that ford has increased the number of dealerships in many indian cities.. go u can surely opt for ford to enjoy best driving and world class technology... cheers !!
