Bad news comes :
My father had taken the car for a tour. I got a call yesterday from my dad and he said the car started a very very loud tak-tak sound from engine so he stopped the car and turned off engine. Being in unknown state, he straightaway called a tow truck and towed the car to nearest Tata service centre which was 35 kilometers away. The service guys moved around the car for around 30-40 minutes and told my dad that Engine replacement is to be done!!!! I got shocked at that movement as its been just less than 6 months since we drove the car. My dad took the car out from the service centre and went to another mechanic. He told that he would open the car and tell him about it. Let's see how it goes....
It was a very happy moment for me when the car came back home after doing nearly 90% engine overhaul.
Total costs came around to be 69,900 Rs. ( Including 11,300 Rs. of labor)
Many main parts including crankshaft, pistons and more were changed and the car now behaves as if we have just taken it straight out of the showroom.
The best part is, that the car gave 24.8 kmpl of mileage on a recent trip.
This might be due to the fact that the mechanic told us to run-in for about 1500 kilometers and keep speed less than 55 kmph.
