Dear Sir,

2018 ford EcoSport (Titanium+) AUTOMATIC petrol (24k running). Its under warranty car service record is also available. Final price is 8.25 lakhs. Should i go for it ? (It is available on olx by a dealer).

I asked him (dealer) the reason for selling the vehicle by the owner. He said, the seller was my friend, he purchased a new car.

Usage is 70% city with 50 kms daily (office).

Currently i have ford figo diesel 2013. Due to hard clutch, my dad's left knee is paining. So, I'm planning to buy an automatic car.

Or should i go for a vento. As I'm getting vento highline (2017) dsg automatic running 24k kms (its available on cars24) at 7.50 lakhs.

Please suggest as soon as possible.

Although Ford Ecosport Automatic seems selling at fair price. But as you referred been sold by dealer - i suggest some check
1. Is it the new Model Series where Ecosport was launched in September 2017 with a Facelift with new 6 Speed Torque Converter or the DCT Automatic Model where the car was available before that time.
Its well possible that customer bought a MY 2017 Model but registered in 2018

If its DCT then avoid as there are some known issues on same but if its the latest series of 2018 manufactured with 6 Speed Torque converter then is okay. Suggest to check on RC and decode Manufacturing year. Decode Car Manufacturing Year

2. Even though in warranty. Get Vehicle service history check on how many times the car bought to Ford Workshop
Its important to rule out issue if the previous owner faced in.

3. Inspect car from trained personnel to rule out any issues / accidental

> If car not bought beyond regular service to Ford workshop
> If its latest MY 2018 Model with 6 Speed Torque converter and not DCT Gear Box

then is recommended to go with deal. But still i suspect something not correct as price seems rather much fair and dealer is in business of making money in between rather than selling car on fair price

Hope should help !!
