well expense are paid by army and i think he has good luck that he never faced any major problem . still i heard tata engine has life of 200000KM but 4500000km that's overkill .

i believe tata engines can go over 8000000km if taken care well , unlike foriegn brands tata does not stop supplying spares or supports. it is home grown
and tata do take a share of pride in it. it is only from service centres they mess it up due to ignorance and attitude.

there are 15+ year old tata buses and trucks doing excellent on our roads which happens to be real backbone of tata giving them enough confidence.

Okay , i faced the same problem. It must be due to the excessive steering wheel play.


In our case it was rectified by changing the suspension components , total cost 20k! After changing that our car is good now.

By now i meant the steering play is correct after changing some suspension components.


I don know whether there are any issues apart from uncomfortable driving.
