Maintenance cost and after sales services effects?
By: Maulik Thaker on 12 february 2015
Hello Maulik Thaker..
Ford vehicles have advantage of very good quality of vehicle and highly reliable engines. So the frequency of brakedown repairs is very very less. A scheduled maintenance is good enough for long term ownership.As far as cost of spares are concerned, yes it is considerably high as compared to Tata and Maruti Suzuki cars. If you like the brand Ford and spending bit extra is not a constraint then its really worth the money spent.
Ford EcoSport is a reliable and popular product from the American carmaker. Ford gives factory warranty of 2 years or 100000kms, whichever is earlier, and also has good plans for extending the warranty by 1 or 2 years. As far as maintenance is concerned, there are plenty of service plans made available which are quiet money saving and offer total peace of mind. Ford has increased its dealers and service centres overtime to improve after sales service.
Ford EcoSport belongs to compact SUV class but this car comes with some off the track features like low maintenance and running cost. According to me when you get good ground clearance and amazing fuel economy with decent performance you should not wait to buy that car. If you go for Ford EcoSport 1.0P Ecoboost Titanium (O) MT and Ford EcoSport 1.0 P Ecoboost Titanium M then you will experience much more fuel economy even with the petrol motor. Finally the maintenance cost can be reduced by following the maintenance chart as mentioned in user manual.
