Agree Ford Motor Company is actualy Fraud Motor Company
Usually in any car, 2nd gear is trouble due to gear ratio balance in gear box design. This problem persists in high end cars also, I made several iterations in design of the gear box in PG for 4 speed and 5 speed, but never attained an optimized gear ratio, because speed that we go will be in such a way that needs a 2.5 gear, that is gear between 2 and 3...
That is the reason we provide 9 gear vehicle for heavy trucks, like dump trucks which costs 7-9 lakhs for gear box alone.
Try this method in your car, release the clutch gently and raise the accelerator a bit this works very good for cars.
third gear is optimized, we feel good pickup

Ford Figo is one of the worst cars that anyone can buy, the service people always end up saying that everything is allright and within Ford India specifications. What they really mean is that Indians are below standard and we have make do with whatever is sold to us. If Ford India is really genuinely concerned about good customer service, the least they can do is to get feedback from all customers who have been reporting problems and "rectify" them all as a genuine gesture of good will and replace all parts if necessary at thier cost.

1. Suspension very hard
2. Headlights not at all good, infact dangerous
3. Windscreen reflects the dashboard and the image superimposes on the front vision throwing a customer's driving to hazard
4. Road Clerance is pathetic when fully loaded
5. Mileage is the worst
6. Doors and Body have odd sounds
7. Brakes create a lot of sounds even on Models which have ABS
8. No Pickup in 2nd gear even on normal roads with AC on
9... the list can be endless

I totally agree with the above complaint. I am too facing following problems in my newly purchased FIGO.

1. Digital ODO meter - Even after adding some amount of fuel, the odometer shows the original status only. The readings do not match the actual mileage.
2. Hand brake indicator - It is always showing in active condition, even after locking the car.
3. Power loss in AC - In AC mode the pick up is highly diminished.
4. Noise from door and body - Its doors makes a typical noise of rubbing during driving.
5. Hard wipers - wipers feel some kind of resistance and makes noise.
6. Poor mileage - giving me a mileage of 10/km on petrol.
