Ford Fiesta Classic Magnetic Sunshades
Have used this before, it deteriorates with time, after a long time, it will start to bend in one direction and ultimately we will throw it away, still for at least one year it will give cooling from the harsh sun

Ford Fiesta Classic 1.6 SXi: 11th Service Experience

The car has done about 20K Kms so far. The 11th service was done by Riddhi Ford last weekend.​

  • Overall experience at Riddhi Ford was pleasant as compared to other Ford workshops.
  • They’ve shifted the dealership (within same locality) and service center is now located right behind it.
  • This service was charged total Rs.3,822 only. Quite reasonable. But SA pointed out a few issues with car.
  • Some of the issues include rear wheel bearing, front discs and pads replacement, steering fluid leakage etc.
  • I’ve been asked to shell out approx. Rs.15,000 for the job. I’ll get the major things fixed first (probably elsewhere).
  • I requested a quote for fixing a dent at the bottom of rear door. SA quoted approx Rs.8,000 with justification that whole door needs to be re-painted.
  • However, during our Ford Technical Training Center visit in Feb, I was informed that it can be fixed without repainting the whole part for much cheaper.
  • Goes to show the reality of what's planned and what's executed. Same is the case with so-called 'Quick Lane' service. Hope Ford India takes a note.

Don't replace the discs. The life of the disks is more than 1 Lakh kms unless you have not replaced pads and damaged the discs. Anyway remove the discs and take to a lathe to check if ok. Usually the dealers try to fool people by asking them to replace the discs. 90% of the time they are fine. Even if they are not the lathe can polish them and make them flat. should not cost you more than a few hundreds.
Same thing was told to me for my Rapid. Checked it and it was fine. since I had opened it up, I changed the pads.​
