!! I could see the difficulty of making a decision on a new product when you bought the vehicle as you need to make up your mind to be ready for anticipated risks involved.
Tell me about your current feeling on Storme if you consider the day one and today.
What kind of short comings you have felt Storme to be equipped with ?
Did your expectations met by this SUV ??
How would you rate Storme against its earlier Dicor
What are the things which makes you very happy when you go around with Storme ??
What makes you irritated in Storme ??
Do you feel it is a VFM
day one and today : i still feel same excitement till today whenever i have to take my storme on a long trip.its been almost a year(20 days remaining).i feel as if i bought it yesterday.i have faced some issues in the past year but today i have a niggle free car(except rare squeeking sound from last door).
TASS experience has been great .They assisted me well,listened to my problems and tried their best to fix them.I have LX so i find it realy value for money.
Actually storme exceeded my expectations(i try to have realistic expectations).
Buying a TATA and expecting TOYOTA quality ,thats not fair.Almost a niggle free vehicle(i mean nothing major issue),great ride,comfort,now even FE has increased after first service.What else one want.i bought AMC so maintainance cost is also not much.I do miss a 2 din sometimes.
I have no experience with dicor,but the reviews averted me from buying dicor.if i had to i would have choosen scorpio over dicor(my view).
When ever i go around with storme the majestic feel,the view from driver seat.People respecting the vehicle on road(like i respect pajero,fortuner
Its easy to drive in city .
The only irritating part was the problem with the central locking .
Whenever i used to lock it,horn sound used to come.I faced this for like 8 months.
TASS mechanic wasnt able to understand the root cause.
But finally few days back this was fixed something in the driver door was replaced.
So all is good now.
I feel the LX to be the most VFM
variant.Almost saves you around 1.1 lakh over EX(approx).Under 12 lakh i believe its a great buy.This is what i can say today.
But storme has yet lot of things to prove.How it will handle after 3 years,may be 4-5 years.Because a middle class person buying a car around 10lakh will keep it for 4-5 years minimum.
TATA did miss a great oppurtunity .They almost got it right with storme.
But should have added a flashy center console,few additional features.
But even more than that TATA image needs to be corrected.
Look at the sales figure of scorpio,its going great even today.
Strome is a great vehicle i would rate it better than scorpio.
TATA has really done a great job in improving TASS and this is a major reason why i am content with my storme today.
