Summary:

It is a superb car which looks great and is solid like a rock

Faults:

In two hundred thousand kilometers, just one clutch and one set of brake pads!

General Comments:

A good priced and extremely reliable car, which handles well with wider tyres.

The Feroza is very strongly built and performance-wise, competes very well with the larger 4WD, in fact is as fast as most of the large engined ones!

I once took my standard Feroza through 1m of water, and it kept going even with 2 pistons compressing water! No con-rod damage etc.

I will reposition the air-filter next time though!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
