Summary:

Good car, bad service from Ford Philippines

Faults:

Nothing serious til last month (42k on the ODO), there was a problem transferring power from the engine to the drive train (felt like you'd shift to neutral while driving). Dealer traced this to the transmission control module. Still waiting for parts as of writing (44 days down time as of writing).

General Comments:

Bang for the buck in terms of price vs features. More than enough power for the body size. 6th gear is perfect for highway driving. Generally good NVH insulation.

The tranny problem was the only chip in a relatively good 2 years with the car. The problem with lack of parts off the shelf from Ford Philippines, and the lack of a service vehicle, added to the unpleasant experience

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
