Overall value for Money but...

for 1.2 Ti-VCT Trend

Overall value for Money but...

I am vilas wagh from Navi Mumbai and have been a ford fan for quiet some time. My first car was a ford figo diesel model which I loved a lot. I sold that car and in July 2015 bought the very much talked about ford figo Aspire petrol version as usage was low. I was considering all the options available in this segment i.e. hyundai accent, Maruti Dezire, Tata zest and Honda Amaze. After a lot of research and user reviews and expert views finally decided to buy ford aspire as it was a winner in terms of features and looks and I don't regret my decision. Dezire was equally good but since I wanted to stand out and did not want to follow the herd mentality, I choose to own aspire. We have driven this car for 10000 kms today and traveled from Mumbai to ooty within 3 months of purchase before first servicing. It's very comfortable to drive and don't feel the strain on the highways. I can write lot of positives but many of my fellow users have written it so would focus only on the negatives. 1. The pick-up is very low in the second gear. We faced problems in the ghat sections. Had to ride on the first gear. I have driven this car in the hilly terrains of ooty (36 Hair pin bends) as well as Matheran hills near Mumbai. Overall the handling is very good on the curves but the problem is: In the first gear only we can feel comfortable. if you shift to second there is a heavy lag. Even if you stand on the accelerator, the car wont go ahead, feels like pulling a bullock cart. I investigated the problem and also spoke to the service centre guys. They said that there was some alignment (Not the wheel alignment) problem with the engine and have rectified it. Post rectification I have felt a lot of improvement in the performance but still have some problem with the pick up in the second gear. My friends who drove this car and are owners of other brands have also felt the same. I am still not very comfortable while overtaking as once you drop below a certain rpm level, the engine takes time to revive.(This is the Major drawback of the car) 2. Weak Head lights. (Even Ford figo had same problem, I got it rectified from a local mechanic by using a cut out and having high power head lamps.). And it works. 3. In the Ford figo earlier version, Bose speakers were fitted by the company, which were very good. Now they have used Kenwood speakers which I feel are not up to the mark as compared to bose speakers. Can make out the difference. 4. While closing the doors, you do not get that refined sound of closing as you get in other cars. The door closes with a thud sound. Which I don't know is a good or bad sign. I am very much satisfied with the Interiors, Looks, and Features. Everything offered is value for money. One last thing: I am extremely pleased by the overall service offered by the ford showroom staff as well as the service centre staff in Navi Mumbai. (Cheers to Bhavna Ford in Navi Mumbai). I would give those 10 on 10 for the overall service.
