The car has clocked a little over 15,000 Kms. It delivers about 10 – 12 Kmpl. Service cost was approx. Rs.6,000, remaining for anti-rust coating.

Drive Safe,

Hi,

I recently purchased a pre owned Fiesta at Chennai , which has the some rust on both the front doors. I checked with a local guy to fix it, he quoted 35 K for two doors & small tinkering job. I was not in a situation to spend that much at this point of time, so came back quietly.
Please share the repair cost for your door rust.

I dont think they are big. Do you have any contact info of good work man to fix these?
i have a contact but only here in coimbatore they are really talented in this sort of works even they match the new to the existing body color. And in the left door it has started to spread and i'll suggest you to repair the rust asap. be cause i has started to developing upwards. And as you said it is not a big rust but if you leave it like this for another month i will be a big rust which will cost more. And i think this is the right time to repair it, If you can come here to coimbatore to repair i'll surely tell the contact number of the service center where i service named south india motors. Or wait i'll show this picture of rust in your car and ask them the quote for your car.[:)]

Previous owner told that the rust started 2 years before. He said that he treated the entire car with some anti rust treatment and from the rust stopped spreading further.

But to me I am not ok with the rust on car and want to do something. I am waiting for total settlement from insurance company for my old flooded car. Till I get that amount, I have to use this car in as is state.

But the anti rust coating in for under chassis. and the rust is on the body metal the anti rusting coating will prevent the chassis metal parts from getting rusted.

Yes I too feel the same.

I can't come to CBE to fix this. I am looking to fix this in Chennai itself or next time when I go to my native(Vijayawada) I may try to find some guy there to fix this.

The rust condition will continue to grow unless you work on this. It may eat up the whole door slowly. According to previous owner the rusting started 2 years before which means probably the car was not maintained (washed/dried regularly) properly.!!

I have no complains with the car performance or the condition of interiors. Only this rust part is annoying me.
