Pros : Nothing

Cons : manitenance costs kills me big time

Please avoid buying Figo, Initially looks cheap and value for money but maintenance cost sucks. Ground clearance is worst than any other car even can't go smooth in normal speed breaker with a full load. My free service costs 10 k ....Please buy only if ur rich enough and can afford 15 k to 30 k maintenance every 10k kilometers.

Look and Style-Average 

Comfort=Not bad 



Best Features-Nothing 

Needs to improve-In many aspects 

Overall Experience-Very worst

    Seems hari was unlucky and got defected one. I am owning Figo Diesel since 12 months - First Service was free of cost and Second service I paid Rs 1800 only. Even I am hearing from here and there that maintenance cost is too high in Ford. It may be true. Based on 12 months experience I can say - Its good car with decent mileage. Pro and Cons with every car. Niether Maruti or Hyundai will do the free maintenance.

    Probably you are with good service provider. I am single owner of Figo, I have paid 4000/- for second service that includes oil change, wheel alignment and Balancing. I have told by service guys that 3 rd service costs 7 to 8 K and forth one around 9 to 10K

    Why do you put such false comments on a reputed site like cardekho? this is utter rubbish or u dont know to drive a car or may be u have used only maruti 800. my figo diesel service cost me only Rs.68 for 1st service and second service Rs.1800. if u love your family go for figo- it has a solid build next only to punto and is very safe. if you just want to save a few bucks on mileage, go for the pregnant lady - swift.

    You are right. I have Figo EXi diesel, my first service cost RS 0, and second service cost RS: 1800. It is giving me 17KMPL in city. I do not have any experience in high way. Those who are writing that Figo diesel gives poor mileage either they are telling lie or they do not know how to drive. Also the pregnant lady -swift give 18kmpl mileage in city so difference is 1 KM and price difference is 1 lacks with less leg space. Figo is very balanced driving comfort in Figo is ashom.

    Hi Sajit, Thanks for the review. I am planning to buy a family car within 6-6.5 lacs. Brio, i10-sportz, Vista and Figo are in my list. I am deeply concerned with the Ground clearance issue (and the scrubbing on humps when the Figo is loaded) and the turbo lag that i am hearing from the user-reviews. Could you please advice on the same and guide me? Thanks & Regards Anoop

    sajit |03 Jul,2013 09:56:40 PM

    Hi Anoop, ground clearance is a prob only when the boot and rear is fully loaded and u don't brake. mind u the grnd clearance of figo is 168 and swift/ ritz 170. i.e., a difference of 2mm. Don't go for i10. It is a small car and the service and spare costs of Hyundai is more than Figo or any other car. Brio, though from Honda comes with a lot of cost cutting features like absence of anti rust coating etc.,. Vista has a good engine from Fiat but everything else is of poor quality and after 2 yrs the car makes all kinds of noise and electric buttons start disfunctioning. Turbo lag is a problem in all diesel engines, though it was a bit more in Figo. However it has been overcome by tweaking the engine in the new version launched last year(same engine is used in Fiesta). Don't go by false comments posted by fraudsters or Maruti sales men and go for FIGO as it gives you value for every rupee you pay and comes from a more than 100yr old motor company that was the first to start manufacturing of cars in the world for sale.

    I was planning for some time to buy figo, but now this review is discouraging and shows it is too expensive to handle this car and also I should be very lucky to get service from a good service centre.
