After 5 long weeks from booking date, my Tiago XZ Petrol was ready for PDI. Thanks to TAI
and this forum for the exhaustive PDI checklist, though I could not perform all of them during the limited time I had.
Odometer reads just 12 KMs. Check!
Car is from latest production batch. G->2016 and E->May. Check!
Good Year Assurance tires. Small rubber needles noted. Check!
Tires manufactured in 18th week of 2016, i.e., 1st week of May. Check!
Spare wheel was also Good Year.
Under the hood. Fired up the Revotron and noticed it dancing around in the bay. However, most of it is filtered out inside the cabin (at least to me). Check!
First aid kit and manuals in Glove Box. Now for the glitches:
Parcel tray holder was not in place. Asked them to put it back before delivery as this didn't look like a big issue to me.
Rear right door had visible white spots that appeared to be paint but it came off with a slightly firm wipe with bare hands. Asked this to be cleaned too.
No noticeable panel mis-alignments. As with most display cars I checked, quarter panel is slightly outward from the front doors when sliding my palm over that panel gap. I guess I will live with it.
Other Tiago's lined up waiting for their owners
Didn't spend much time on interiors/seats as they were wrapped in plastic covers from factory. Overall, I am satisfied with my Tiago and made the payment for registration process. Expecting delivery next week!
