Actually - its not

Ford India Service Interval is 10,000 Kms (1st Service @ 2500 Km . 3 month & 2nd Service @ 10K Kms / 12 month - labor free) - rest are periodic paid services.

In terms of Periodic Service Costs
> Engine Oil 5W/30 costs Rs. 1150 (10K Kms) - Mineral Oil
> Oil Filter - Rs. 400 (10K Kms)
> Air Filter - Rs. 300 (20K Kms)
> Brake / Clutch Fluid - Rs. 650 (20K Kms)
> Diesel Fuel Filter - Rs. 1300 (30K Kms or 3 yrs)
> Wheel Balancing & Alignment - Rs. 750 - 800 Labor Charge (Every 10K Kms)
> Paid Labor Charges (during Periodic Service) - Rs. 1200

Rest :-
> Gear Oil - Need Inspection only, may top up if fluid levels low
> Coolant - Rs. 1600 (no need to replace as such - has long life of 1 Lakh Kms)
> Timing Belt - Inspection only (Long life of 1.2 Lakh Kms)

Its well reasonable to owe and maintain Ford Figo

Heres Pricing of some spares :-
>> Front Bumper (Rs. 2K), Rear Bumper (Rs. 3k) - Paint & Labor Additional - estimated at around Rs 6000 - 7000
>> Horn - Rs. 550,
>> Drive Belt - Rs 2000
>> Engine Mount - Rs 5500
>> Front Brake Pads replacement - Rs. 2200 with labor (if brake disc also needs replacement - then 4500 extra)
>> AC Evaporator Coil replacement with Gas refill & Labor - Rs 10000
>> Side ORVM - 1000 - Paint & labor Additional of rs 2000 approx,
>> Clutch Plate Assembly (with Clutch Plate, Flywheel, Pressure Plate, Brake Fluid etc) - Rs. 7000 - 7500 in Petrol, Rs. 12,000 - 14,000 in Diesel with Labor

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update in October 2015
If you seek to know about Service & Maintenance Cost of New Figo / Aspire Sedan -
Know about - Ford Figo Aspire Service
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What is slight issue - are the labor charges - which are relatively higher , For instance
> Brake Cleaning - Rs. 750
> Paint Charges for Bumper are slight higher - Rs. 6000 Plus for Front bumper including paint.

Though Celerio Zxi has driver side airbag & more feature. But yes Ford Figo is a comfortable hatchback & if considering diesel- you will have lower running costs along with bigger boot, better legroom,

You may also check up for Ford Total Maintenance Plan - available at time of sale for 30,000 Kms or 3 yrs - It includes - All Labor Charges, Periodic Maintenance and even also cover wear & tear of parts - costs around rs. 14,000 and best part is it includes wear & tear items (Ball Joints, Steering Racks, Wheel Bearings, Injectors, Belts & Hoses etc.) with free labor free repairs- which is not covered under Insurance & warranty too.

I took a test drive for both Figo diesel titanium and Celerio VXI AGS (as Celerio manual was not available) driven by sales person which I had finalized as final contestants for my first car.
There is a speed breaker at the entrance of my apartment which is big for testing. I got all the seats full inside both vehicles during test drive. The road I took was intentionally not good for most of it. I am just pointing out the negatives here -
Negatives for Figo - It scraped the breaker at my apartment while going and while returning as well.
Negatives for Celerio - It did not absorbed the bumps and passed it on to us which makes me feel that for 35 kms of daily run, it makes some difference everyday.

I will be driving full car atleast twice a month.
I have two more points that I found about Figo which may prevent GC issues - First, the Figo Titanium I test drove was 30kgs heavier then Figo EXI. Second, I read that inflating tyres more than the general pressures when planning for full car trips might help. Is it true?
Is someone having experience with solving the figo clearance problem with all seats occupied? Any suggestions would be helpful.

I own a Ford Figo TDCi ZXi and I just completed 19000KM and got the 3rd paid car serviced at Lathangi Ford housur Road Bangalore.
I got Service bill was 6.353/-

It was just a general 20,000km service as per ford Maintenance schedule + Two mud flaps.

I have felt that Ford is charging really high for a small hatch. Ford Figo is not a low cost of ownership.

Hi All,

Never buy ford figo as the cost of maintinanace is too high.I have done 55000 Kms with my almost 3 year old car.In last two services my bill was always more then Rs 18000/-.
They have changed rear shockers which were in perfect condition as inspected and certified by other mechanics.Lots of other parts have been replaced.Even ford customer care is not empathatic towards their customer.Service booklet is confusing for various jobs to be done at different intervals and warrany piece is also not explicitily written.

My car looks new as I keep it properly maintained.The same is applauded by ford mechanics also.

:( :( :( :( :(

I own a figo diesel, 4 yrs old, 50,000kms done and must say i am staying away from any american car maker forever now..their cars are good for the first 2 years, post which they are a massive liability.

over the past 9 months i've already shelled out close to 80K fixing issues of a properly maintained and serviced car, currently its in a garage with an issue with fuel injectors which was discovered via a precautionary check since i felt the car didn't sound right.

its white in color and personifies the white elephant !!

Guys please don't buy any ford vehicles if you are not ready to shell out massive amount for maintenance. I have ford figo diesel of 2011 make, I have already replace 4 fuel injectors which will cost more than 60k. This is apart from the normal service charge which approx 5-6K every 10000 KM. Having said I am happy with fuel economy and driving experience.
