Again a new tata vehicle in our family
It joined 2 days back.
This time its my aunt who bought this.
Presently am driving it , till my aunt and uncle master it
This is tdi engine , terra model . In simple the very basic model in vista.
Its a marine silver colour car.
The very first annoying thing is the speedo and others in the center of the dash.
Driving in night is sometimes scary as there is pitch black behind the steering , which am not used to.
Also reading the speedo is difficult. No tachy in this model.
The very first difference from my marina is the ride height . this one is some what higher. Also the door panels are higher and windows are smaller , so resting the hand in window pane is difficult also during reverse in tight spot you cannot put your heads out.
Regarding the engine , its same as my marina . 1.4 tdi engine with an inter cooler.
The pick up and smoothness is exactly the same as in my marina.
It is said that it has same suspensions as in indigo with an extra twisted rear beam. But no difference. Its same.
The rear seats are as in indigo. Its comfortable and not awkward as in indica.
Though designed for 3 , it can accommodate 4 persons.
So in simple 6 of them can travel with ease in this.
But where do the 6 of them keep there luggages ?
The rear dicky is so small , smaller than the indica.
The dealer delivered it exactly on 14th day from booking. his promise was 15 days. It would have been 12th day , had they been auspicious. Grand ma's strict condition. so cant do anything.
Tata knows its customers very well- That they leave there vehicles outside for service. So they have given numerous coupons . All are effective from 1st paid service. Each has its own percent of discount on service. Some membership coupons are also available , where they reduce the bill some percent on each service. In simple words all are utter waste.
Tata is tata, as the saying goes , the bonnet doesn't open .Its just the 3rd day today. The release lever is working fine , but nothing happens in front.
Also there is numerous panel gaps visible easily. some are not even . Bigger at start and smaller in end . I'll upload the pictures soon.
The accesories that are fixed are
1. Korean grade 1 dvd players.
2.Pioneer 5 inch and a pair of tweeters at back .
3.Jvc rear 6x9 speakers(Free with car, 3000rs worth accesories are free and we chose this)
4.Crush leather type seat covers .
5.Full floor vinyl mat and rubber mats above them .
6.Auto cop central lock and security system.
7.Roots vibrosonic horns with musical relay.
Hope the bonnet issue will be fixed in the first service .
Oh God don't make me hear them saying 'All vista terra models have bonnet opening problems'
