Went to Ford Service Centre today for 1st Service as it covered 2500kM now.
There wasn't major works other than tightening Mudflap, cleaning wind shield and side glass by removing stickers etc...
Reached Service centre (Kairali, Muvattupuzha, Ernakulam) by 9am and it didnt took much time for an SA as I had booked earlier.
Explained SA about the difficulty I am facing in city traffic due to high torque. And asked them whether this will affect life of clutch since I cant drive it without clutch in city traffic.
The SA was just smiling as if he used to hear it from every other owner of next-gen Figo and said that it will definitely reduce life of clutch plates. However, he was clueless when I asked for a solution.
Though i have planned to drop car there till evening, I was told to wait just one hour since it was First service. They have delivered car in 1.5 hours by completing washing and general checkup including some updation on ECU.
Finally, the bill came with a big "Zero" as Ford promised while booking car
However, there is reduction in torque which is very much evident now. I can ride him at 20-25 kmph in third gear without clutch&acceleration now. And it is able to ride at 10-15 kmph in 2nd gear similarly.
Earlier I wasn't able to ride below 30kmph in 3rd gear without applying clutch. Similarly, the minimum possible speed in 2nd gear without clutch was 20kmph.
Feeling great relief now as usage of clutch is minimal in city traffic now.
