Why I sold my 2010 Ford Figo after 1.84L km

It is one of the finest hatch backs to have been made and no wonder there are quite a few old generation Figo’s still on road

BHPian raju2512 recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

After 12 wonderful years and 1,84,000 km, I parted with my 2010 Ford Figo petrol Zxi.

The vehicle was trouble free till about a year back, when multiple issues started showing up, First was AC compressor failure, then change of bearing, gear shift lever cable (it took 15 days to get the correct spare), AC water leakage in cabin and finally oil leakage from engine which resulted in a major engine repair (took 5 weeks to get the car back).

Till then, I had spent pittance on this wonderful car. First tyre change at 65K, next at 135K and then the front tyres at 175K. All the parts are stock and no major overhaul till now.

The well calibrated HPS, excellent ergonomics and driving comfort made it a pleasure to drive inspiteof the slightly under powered but eager duratec 1.2l petrol engine.

Best in class AC, wonderful music system, electrically adjustable OVRMs, RVM with antiglare features, theater style dimming cabin lamps were all VFM features which many of the cars of that time didn’t have.

It is sad after having made such great cars like Figo and Eco Sport, Ford had to close its India operation.
