Indeed the Glove Box lid is mis aligned. However, thanks for mentioning the other 2 issues as I have bought an XZO tigor yesterday so will keep it in mind. Any idea why does the rear fog lamp not have bulb in it?

Ask your ASS people to spray electrical contact spray in combination switch it will solve left indicator problem.

Nope no bulb in it, none of the pics online shows illuminated fog lamps in the rear.
BTW any good suggestions for front fogs + chrome surrounds for my Tigor XE

Thanks, will ask them tomorrow as I'll be visiting for the first service.

The Buying experience is nothing short of a nightmare for me,will post more on that shortly.I was overcharged 6K when i asked about the difference in price they said Stamp duty and document charges for loan from TMF but later when i found the disbursed amount to be 6K less than loan amount I found out that Dealership double charged me.When I asked the same they said I have to pay 1% of loan amount to dealership later when I was serious the Sales Manager accepted it's a illegal charge and the dealership charges this to every single customer who's car is financed by TMF Ltd..He was quite friendly with me and showed no. of Delivery challens which all included the charge some in the tune of upwards of 15K.
When i spoke to the Dealership manager he sent me back to speak with sales manager and after a lot of hassle I finally got my refund, a guy in the dealership told me the amount would be shared by Delaership and sales agents.
Sales Manager is a honest ,hardworking guy though.
They drove me nuts above's the one single issue ,I faced .Not a great experience.
On the flip side I'm lovin my TIGOR

I checked out a Tigor XZO again today at an Auto Exhibition in Delhi. Over there I asked the Representative as to why a bulb wasn't provided to rear fog lamp, he said it's a company's move but the same can be fixed later as there is a provision in it and it can be operated by the fog lamp switch provided inside. Any idea to any of the fellow owners about the cost of the bulb? Secondly, I noted a rather strange thing in that car's glove box i.e till now we saw the mis aligned lid from the left corner like in my own car but today I saw it was mis-aligned from the right corner and the gap was showing as well. The guy there told me, purposely there is some play provided to the lid but also accepted that there is a slight quality issue in it. I am going to ask my dealer SA to provide me a solution to both the issues next week.

Buddies & Fellow Owners!

The quality issues / finishing issues which I came across and mentioned here made me to take my 2 day old Tigor to the service center today as I was feeling itchy to get them resolved. Well, it seems, these quality issues are not in capacity of the dealer to be rectified to perfection.

1) The misaligned glove box: I posted earlier about my car's glove box lid to be mis-aligned from left so upon showing it to the dealer, their representative made efforts to align it at best but ended up unsuccessful. Though the gap on the left corner became very less, the right corner got mis-aligned by about 0.5 inch. He tried to punch the same but no success and it still remains as it is i.e mis-aligned. While coming back I tried my hand at it and let me add here, there is design flaw between the lower curve of the dashboard and the glove box lid. If you press from left corner, the right corner comes out and vice versa. I tried to push it and the plastic got jammed and the glove box lid became non-functional. Upon further pushing the lid came out and finally the box was working with right corner gap still there. This problem was present in their display model too. Hence, I feel, there is nothing that can actually be done until TML takes note of it. Have to live with it!


2) Rubber insulation used on the door: My car's all 4 door's rubber insulation from edges had come off and there was gap between the metal and insulation and it was visible too. Same issue with the display model too & even in a Hexa. Although quality of rubber is good but the fitting is not good. I saw a piece of double tape fixed on the edge but that too could not hold the rubber. I called the GM of the dealership and tried to explain it to him. He check out the same and the only possible solution to it was application of a Double Sided Tape on the metal door frame and the rubber had to be pressed against it on all 4 door's edges. I would suggest, keep a roll of 3M double tape handy. There seems no point in cribbing on this issue because the guy there told it is purposely made flexible. I believe those of us who have already bought the car need to wait for a permanent solution on this from TML otherwise 3M double tape is a quick fix. I had a word with the GM on this and he told, even if the insulation is replaced then also this thing won't be resolved as it's a design feature.


3) The Empty Rear Fog Lamp: No resolution to it. I will re-check on this and see if the bulb can be fixed in it or not. Guys there told me it remains empty and no bulb is provided in it.

The full mating provided by dealership has fitting issues,I was hesitant to go with but Sales Manager personally assured it's provides perfect fit.
I have also installed power windows (4) and central locking at the dealership they are dubbed Tata Genuine Accessories but the vendor is Autocop. They are working fine but the service guys failed to fit the rear left door correctly they promised to refit it perfectly though.
The left turn indicator failed to turn on yesterday and i was taking a turn I just escaped a narrowly from a biker.The left turn indicator works 95% of the time.
My Tigor clocked 1850 on ODO in 25 Days ,First service is due but heavy rains are delaying it.

I got the same for my Nano in 2013, first six months it was working fine, however it started giving problem post that wherein multiple times[frustration], I had to use the remote key for locking all the four doors. So please ensure you call them up if you see slightest of abnormality within warranty period.

I am getting delivery tomorrow 21/9/17, will check and post If I see anything like this in my car.
