  1. Hi, I’m Binay from Nepal. I love my Ford Figo Titanium (Petrol) bought recently. Now 2000 kms. Its great in all other aspects except these:
    1) Last time I left it for a week as I had to go outside of the city. When returned, the battery drained out completely. After that, I never had to leave it for more 7 days however I am afraid if it again happens. What could be the problem?
    2) Whenever it is required to climb bit hard, it is required to push more throttle in half clutch though half clutch is NOT recommended. While climbing and slow speed, without clutch, pushing throttle is worthless (Is it its ASL [Automatic Speed Limiter] blocking flow of oil?). Interestingly, with half clutch and good push in accelerator, it climbs well. Is anybody of you experiencing the same with pick up?
    3) In Kathmandu City (heavily crowded), it gives 9kml. Is this all right?
    4) Whenever there are more than 3/4 passengers and speed, no way in Kathmandu streets. You hit almost all medium sized speed breakers. I have to reduce speed toooo low (interestingly no collision) to pass over these bumps.
