very true...i hope the refine their levels of 'fit & finish'. i don't understand their marketing strategy (if there is one at all). their vehicles could easily compete with the sumo/qualis/tavera people movers, if they improved on quality. they need to urbanize the current rural image of theirs.

Force motors are very slow in development though they have good products in hand.. take the case of trax they had showed the new body of trax & Macho... at autoexpo 2006 but still its not on road. before that in expo04 they had showed Bagira, which was to take on Scorpio which never came to production... likewise firstly they had showed Minifour which still not in market while Tata motors took the clue & developed ACE & see what a sucess story it is.

Like wise OM611 2.2 ltr engine was ready with them at expo06... while they were no thought for the same from Mahindras or Tata & now they are on verge of launching the same, while Force motors have not yet productionised it.

Only they know what their strategy is.......

I had contacted navnit motors they r the dealers in maharshtar for force motors .. when i called them up the executive told me that only 2 models r available i.e. gama & gurkha and that too gurkha is made as per order ,, he said he'll mail me the brochure lets c how it works out..

So they have renamed the Judo as the Gamma ?

I would like to know what is the 'essential' difference between the Judo and Gama ?

Better yet I am hoping to make him signup as a Team-BHPian. But he may hesitate for the same reasons why Ramchandran (BHPian rrnsss, owner of force4x4.com website) dropped off from this thread. When you own a rare vehicle that even dealers don't stock, you are expected to give TD to all kind of strangers who vary from serious buyers to casual TD enthusiast. That can bug the hell out of you.

I know a little about this. I own one of the only two Automatic Santro in my District and the dealers here call up whenever they get queries for TD on an automatic. They even expect me to bring the car to the dealership. But I always refuse and tell them they have to come to my house at my convenience for TD. So far they have never shown up, the 10Kms drive is too much I guess. Besides, the TD of Auto Santro on Universal K&N may give an entirely different idea.

That is a very optimistic thing to say, it may be still made to order kind of deal, it at all they offer it.

Gama is 9+1 people carrier, not what you want. The only available pic of Gurkha is here, it is the one on the left, this one is soft top.

Being a UV Fan, I always liked the Judo look ( to me a hummer look alike). And after going through the comments and videos, I wonder how many vehicles Gorkha owners have.

I mean if I have that kind of money to afford, I will own a small car for office, large sedan / Innova for family - long drive and finally the fun factor - 4x4 (Gurkha / CL / CJ/ Gypsy).

My humble question to my fellow BHP'ians is if a person have limited finance (parking space too) do you own a Judo?. and how about After sales support , spares?.
