[QUOTE=vishnu vichu;530556]Oh yes, I remember seeing the ad location as Navi Mumbai and the owner ready to meet down at Pune
From the ad, I believe he's an enthusiast and he should've taken proper care of the car. And for the Service history, personally visiting the service centre would help in getting a clear cut idea about the history. I've done the similar thing while taking mine.
..and about the OE alloys, So all other alloys are available with him? If yes, well and good, The OE alloys are pretty good looking considering it's from the manufacturer..and about the price, Kerala prices should be way higher than Pune prices. Still anywhere around 2-2.5L would be a fair deal !!
I've had multiple conversations with him. Meanwhile, I checked with RTO on any pending challans or cases registered and the car seem to be clean on that aspect.
He sold off those 3 alloys and bought some stupid looking Neo alloys. That's a dampener really.
I can't explain how much the original alloy add to the looks of the car. Great Looking!
I've checked with my local Ford Service Center to find availability of those alloys and I hope to land one soon. Or else, I'm thinking of picking up a used set of alloys from Ecosport. But, not many are available it seems, most owners are happy with the alloys. Another alternative is to buy New alloys from Ford of 2015 Fiesta (Global) at Rs.8000 each.
As regard to the maintenance aspect, he has done most of the service from local FNG especially the most recent ones. So, I've to rely on the extensive test drive I'm about to do this Saturday. If all goes well, I'll pick the car this Saturday and bring to Erode by Sunday. Anxious and Fingers Crossed! The seller is in the mood to sell to me after multiple friendly conversations and most of our interests seem to match.
He has used the replaced Apollo Alnac 4G tyres on the car for just 4000 kms. I'm not a big fan of Apollo, I have to see how they hold. I would have preferred Continental MC5 on this for lateral grip and handling.
I'll update you this Sunday and hope to click some pictures of our test drive, possession and return journey.
