I would've sold the car than putting myself and my Family in danger.
One of the SAFETY features of the vehicles should also be PERFORMANCE.
People think of safety as thick metal, Having ABS and Airbags. Thats true, to a part.
The basic safety of a vehicle is also about-
Having good brakes- All wheel discs are good. Premium tyres are a choice.
Not getting stuck/ Bogged down- 4x4s excel in these.
Having enough clean power to overtake, Go uphill (Ghats)- Your vehicle fails here!
Ability to work in lower and higher temperature.
Buddies I live in Rural India and travel on mostly 2 channel roads without dividers.
the overtaking powers of my XUV gives me confidence like no other. I am cautious about overtaking and have all the math done in my head before I Floor the pedal. But once I floor, I just cannot afford the vehicle to hesitate in any way.
I have experienced something similar in my Tiago but without any light flickering ans when I discussed in my KA Tiago group one more guy faced similar issue but he said he got valves cleared and it solved for him. Surprisingly other owners didn't face this issue. Looks like only few Tiagos are affected. Will take up this in my next service. I am at 1.6k and experienced similar thing 2 times.
This happens for me only when AC is on. Switching off AC immediately resolves the issue. Tata provides strong AC and is not able to tune power in ac properly in the petrol models. Without AC car is very smooth.
Well said @bhvm. Having good brakes and overtaking ability is even a bigger dafety feature.
Even i saw the ad in local newspaper. For me, i will take this with a pinch of salt. As far as i know, BOLT is not crash tested or results are not made public so it's a misleading ad to claim that both BOLT & ZEST scored 4 star. For Zest, they made reinforcements to get the 4 star and no where they have officially mentioned that this structurally reinforced ZEST is on sale in Indian market. No doubt that ZEST & BOLT are well built cars but if they have made the changes then it should be passed on to the customers and made public.
Turns out Tiago Revotron owners also face this unknown loss of response to throttle issue. Below is from a TAIger and heard a couple more from social networks too. I just wonder how come these did not crop up for almost a year?
