  1. Only people who doesn't know anything about cars will buy the Ecosport. Weak engine, jerky transmission, hard seats, questionable reliability, poor ride quality, etc.

    1. Yeah, they hate it in AU. The only thing going for it is its wading depth, which metro pinoys worry about the floods. And of course the ride height, which the Chevy Trax has too but is more expensive.

    2. There's still many buyers not researching first before purchasing a vehicle smh.

  2. How many times does it flood in a year? Why would I buy a mediocre CUV car over a good compact sedan/hatch in which I would only utilize its flood wading depth only a few times a year? And the majority of vehicles in our roads are sedans.

  3. So much bitterness from those guys /\
    Jap competitors are still unable to give buyers a viable Ecosport alternative (at that price point!)
    So for now, Ford will just laugh all the way to the bank

    I DON'T OWN ONE

    1. Yeah but Ford better update it. Good thing the newer one is coming, although it's still quite shocking this old and mediocre model still sells very well. Sabagay kung ang binutung prisidinti nga i si dutirti, kutsi pa kaya makapili ng tama, wahahaha

  4. the new model is just called SelectShift, which as per research is the same thing. I would've liked the EcoSport since it matched my 98 RAV4 in size but not in Power. sayang yung DCT na yan, it's not meant for stop-and-go traffic.

    1. Yeah, the manual is the better transmission for this model unfortunately. I thought they're putting in their 1.0 Ecoboost in the newer model and ditching the DCT? Parang wala na yata silang DCT sa mga recent releases nila
