I hope things are going well with you.
After going through an initial jerk of price hike and many humps of argument with Tata and the dealer finally I got a road of zestified joy
Yes I got my Zest on Friday, VIN has FLA which is 2015 model. PDI and delivery experience were normal, there were many car deliveries because 23rd Jan was an auspicious day I believe. After waiting for 20-30 mins they took few signs from me and later they explained me the car .Car was registered on same day so number plate was not fixed. Car had ran just 13KMS.
I met showroom mangers with whom I had a big time arguments regarding price hike and not giving what they had promised before. Before the car delivery it was decided to give free accessories from them to compensate with the interest on full amount paid and they had had offered me to take the discount on insurance too.
Friends suggested me to take gold AMC which costs ~ 16K for 3 years/45k KMS but did not take the extended warranty which can be taken later.
All together I got ~6K discount and additional discount on insurance to get zero dip insurance for online price. During the delivery time I could have negotiated more with showroom people because what they gave is lesser than interest money they got from me but I did not want to make things complicated during the car delivery. The manager of the showroom was saying because of Tata ‘s decision they are finding difficulty in facing customer. I have to say overall good experience because I own Zest now.
Few Pics are attached in this post.
Regarding the car I no need to say much because everything this already discussed here and this car is just amazing.
Only once car made me to think was while driving in a hectic traffic due to closed main road on occasion of Ratha Yatra.Trafic was moving inch by inch on the flyover. It was required to come back to 1st gear to move. At that time we felt rubber burning smell so badly, I did not have this experience with other cars.
What could be the reason for this burning smell ?I believes this is normal behavior of some car Please let me know if I need to do anything here.
And you know, everyone who objected my decision of buying zest really liked the car and they said car is really spacious and special. One of my friend was asking “Did you really get all these features for such a less price “ “XMS is really value for money” etc.
Overall I am happy with the car and I would like to thank each and everyone here who helped me to fight price hike war and guiding me in a right direction . Thanks for everything
