This is my first post and thought would start an ownership of my recently purchased Tata Manza 2 weeks back. I used to drive an old honda City which I never wanted to sell away but due to its engine block damage had to do. So the hunt began for a new car in December when there are heavy discounts on all vehicles.
I started off with tata and droove a Tata Vista Qjet and was happy with the test drive. Then I saw the Manza which had a very good deal and the discounts went upto 1 lakh including the dealer discount and exchange offer. Sat in the car but somehow after comparing to a Honda gave up the idea.
Next was visited Toytoa, Hyundai, mahindra for a verito but could not made up my mind. I was looking for a car for around 6-7 lakh bracket and needed a sedan. Finally after 20 days of research could not finalize anything and thought of keeping my honda and do an engine swap maybe.
Out of the glory on 28th December Tata guys called up from Rama Motors and told they can offer much more attractive pricing and would love to have my visit in the showroom. I visited and took a test drive of the manza and was surprised with the power that Fiat engine with 90 PS had to offer. Thought again 1 day and finally booked the manza base Model named Aqua, Since I already had a kenwood ICE and some good bass tube from JBL thought of taking the base model.
i go the delivery in January and after that liking the evry bit of the car. I read many reviews of the car and the niggling issues with tata cars but till now its going well. Have done around 800 on odo with ! trip outside city. Its a true VFM
car with lots of space and comfort. Whosoever have driven my car they cant believe that tata made such a car which is so comfortable to ride and tat too in this segment with loads of space.
I got aftermarket handrest, Chrome strips around the side doors and bumpers installed ( got from Taiwan from one of my friends), Got seat covers, reverse parking sensors, Wooden finish for Dash and a 3M Paint protection and anti rust treatment done.
Recently though i noticed that when 2 people sit at the rear I hear a squeaking sound from the suspension. Since the first service is due at 1000 I will mention that to TASS.
Uploading couple of pictures but have to click more. Will be doing this weekend.
