2) Which engine oil is used for Ecosport, synthetic oil or mineral oil?
3) Does the Ecosport nose dive under hard braking? Let us assume a case of braking from 80-90 kmph under emergency conditions.
4) Did any of you try mild offroading or driven on extremely bad roads with Ecosport? On paper the 200mm GC looks pretty good and I wanted to check if it holds good in real time scenarios too? I am not sure which method of measuring the GC was used by Ford was it with taken with fully laden or unladen value? The reason I am asking is saw today a Ecosport with 5 people and from the back when I looked it looked as if the GC was equal to normal hatchbacks?
1. fuse is located behind the cooled glove box.
2. same as figo 5W 30 i believe its a synthetic one
3. on straight road if you break properly it wont nose drive, it has 200 mm GC so i think same draw back of toppling issues which all other high GC vehicles have, but when driving i found it glued on road more like a hatch. i can able to give you a straight forward answer after my first long drive.
[planning for a trip to nagarcoil at next month mid]
i found the breaks are good at straight road in 80 kmph
4. i am living at bangalore here many roads are like offroading tracks it survived with no underbody hits.
have climbed 45 degree slop road with no issues it actually climbed better than my figo
and reg GC with 5 on board, if people didnt keep company recommended air preasure according to load then what you seen may be true
