Yes, even to me the costs look to be on the higher side. Especially 25k for bonnet is way too costly. Except for that, everything looks ok to me.

Neat interiors Marun. I find the interiors appealing even though the Fusion which was launched years back was dressed in similar ones.

BTW you haven't covered your seats yet?

Front bumper : 3500.00
Radiator Grille: 1600.00
Mesh available in front: 5000.00
Isn’t the front grille and bumper attached together or can they be separated? Do update us with more photographs and experiences since it’s been a few months now.

Drive Safe,

I still love the Fiesta's sober looks and the classy interiors. Although the Old Ford Fusion had similar interior scheme, they still look acceptable. \

PS: Marun, its time you upgrade wheels and get a spoiler for your rocket.

Sparky unfortunately declared as totalled since, the impact was till the dash right from the rear.
Is that car this flimsy! I have never driven or even touched a Spark so I am asking this. I cant imagine a car built by Chevy is this weak[frustration]

Really sad incident, Your car pics with the tree reflecting on bonnet were awesome. Any pics of your car now?

Hi Sunbaj,

I'll update this thread soon. She has done 19K so far. No problems yet. Will soon come up with a detailed info about the maintenance and service details.

So far, i have changed the wipers. Did under body coating for 3K. Planning to go for alloys once tyre wear out in the next 5K run.

About mileage:
11 kmpl in city with 40 - 70 kmph (100% AC)
12 - 13.5 in highways with 100 kmph (100% AC)

As i am out of chennai now a days i am not taking her out much. [cry]

Good to read an update on the Fiesta, Marun. Hope she’s doing well. Can you share more details about anti-rust coating (Brand etc.)?

Drive Safe,
