Default 100 Kms in chennai with TATA 207

Mods Please move this thread to appropriate link or delete if its existing

Hi Team bhpians i had a chance to drive the TATA 207 this weekend.Actually we had to shift some articles and we were looking for a auto but incidentally my dads friend had a 207 which was being used for his office and he offered to send it to us with driver.

Last minute there was a problem as the driver was on leave,i tried hiring call driver but all were busy due to vinayak charturthi.So then i decided to take over the drivers seat

Now the experience,Firstly it was an old vehicle (should be 1995-1998model) and was very very cramped.No power steering and AC was not working !

Though there was no PS it was pretty easy to drive ,only problem was the half steering ,so you cannot take a U turn just like that.

The seat cannot be adjusted ,and if pushed hard it would move 1 inch and the steering has tilt adjust.

The pick us was ok looking at its age and the max i did was 70kmhr

The steering was vague and to make it go straight i had to steer left to right constantly like the jeep in the song "Zindagi Ex Safar" - Andaaz

On the road i had full respect as every vehicle except lorry's gave way on seeing it in the RVM ,including the Call Taxi and Auto's

I will put across my exp in this thread later,now its time for some pics !

Dicky i guess it was also called as Tata Mobile and sorry i didnt click the interiors but i can say that it is same as the TATA ESTATE.

Even the gearing is same,for reverse you need to lift the gear nob a bit and put it is first gear (direction meant)
