Ford Ikon 1.6 is not manufactured any more and it is known to a tad expensive to maintain , thanks partly to its lower than expected mileage.
Before you buy one make sure that the car is in a good condition as the spares and parts are expensive to replace.If the car pulls to one side , cjances aare that the suspension might be damaged. If there is a screech you will need to change the timing belt. Replacing the suspension will cost you around Rs.20000-25000.
The Ikon is a good car to drive .The fabric inside the car tends to soil rather fast, but nothing a good vaccum job can't alter.
Make sure to check the car for shunts , especially the rear bumper and tailgate, which due to poor visibility frequently collides with electric pillars and large boulders while reversing.
Its spares are costlier compared to Accent and Esteem , two cars selling for roughly the same price.
