I have owned many cars in the last 20 years. Starting from Maruti 800 in 1997, Chevrolet Spark-2008, Maruti ritz VDI-2011, Honda city I-vtec 2013, Honda Mobilio I-dtec 2015, WagonR VXI 2018, and Ford freestyle 1.2 T+ 2019 Jan. Of all these cars, I have found Ford freestyle to be the best combination of economy and performance. Have driven the FS for 2 years 20000 kms. The confidence one gets while driving the car is awesome. The safety features offered are from a class above. With TCS, ESP, ARP, EBD, and six airbags, u get a feeling of being in the tank.
OEM tyres of Goodyear do a great job. The car is an absolute beast slayer on twisty mountain roads. The confidence with which it takes corners is altogether at a different level. Even the fortuners and innovas cannot dare to come anywhere near this car. You can easily carve a corner at speed of 80+ without the tyres screeching and without applying any brakes. And all this while attaining a fuel efficiency of 18+.
Now coming to the service cost. Ford does as promised on their website and normal service costs do not exceed the cost advertised.
