Pros:
Spacious family hatch.You will always have that big car feel.
Excellent value for money.
Diesel economy, esp. considering the soaring diesel prices.
Cons:

Go for the diesel vista.

I do not think that Vista will depreciate more than the Ritz, as there is very reasonable demand for personal Indica by the taxi operators. Another plus point is that emergency repairs can be carried out by most taxi operators in case you are stuck in the middle of nowhere.

Gentlemen,Thankyou for all your help in making the decision.Was off to Tirupathi for the weekend and hence the delay.So a 2011 model cavern grey Vista qdj aqua it is..The Hyundai and maruti people offered a miserly sum for my santro and the on-road cost of both their products(Ritz Vxi & i10 Magna) for 2011 models were very close to Vista's price plus i was also offered 25% more on my santro excluding the bonus by Tata assured.So decided to go ahead with the Vista and make a booking.I believe the Car should reach the Chennai depot by 10th of Feb.

While in the showroom,i took a very close look at both the earlier and the current(refresh) versions of the car.I certainly notice much better interior fit and finish.The plastic quality is also much improved in the drivetech-4 version.But as we all know,there is scope for improvement and yet to reach maruti/Hyundai standards.Having said that,i can also vouch that there is considerable difference in the exterior fit and finish as well.The black and beige interiors make the already spaaaacious insides look even more spacious.I for one feel that i can live with a slight inferior quality compared to the competitors,but with a great VFM product.Somewhere during the deal i was being convinced to go for the 2010 model as it can be invoiced right away and readily available(read-Jan commission for the sales guy and getting rid of inventory)

There was some confusion about the exchange bonus amount that might change for the month of feb considering the valuation was done in jan and the new vehicle delivery is in Feb.I would also like to know the following

1)I was told to surrender the my santro at the earliest as the price valuated might change if i decide to hold the car till a day or before taking delivery.How does this exchange thing work usually?

2)Is it ok if i remove the steering cover(an expensive one) and horn before surrendering the car?

3)If i am holding the car and still drive it around before surrendering.Is the mileage accumulated during that period in anyway gonna affect the current valuation.The guy who valued my car has promised me verbally that this shouldn't be an issue,but i dont know if i should trust him.

You will get the valuation based on the condition of the vehicle when you hand the car over.

1. Yes.
2. Yes as it usually is not going to be factored in during evaluation.
3. Do not go by verbal assurances. Get all the conditions in writing, so that you are covered. Otherwise ignore assurances as sales pitch!

Congrats for your great decision. Vista is really good car but very underrated.
My vista completed 2 years this January. It has completed 56k in this span of time. Still it feels like new and not showing any sign of aging. Only once I faced brakedown with my car due to starter problem but solved by TASS.

My experience with TASS has been excellent. Hope it will remain excellent for coming time.

I haven't spend any extra buck except regular servicing. Maintenance cost is very very low equivalent to negligible. Tata has great warranty on their cars. Even in extended warranty most of the things are covered.

Sushant-I have been through your thread before taking the call.Great review you have there and wish your vista plasts more smiles and miles on you.Thats good to know regarding the servicing costs and TASS conidering all the bashing it gets on this forum

Vista is a great all round package, the only issue with the Vista is the poor AC performence, but it more than makes up for it with space and ride quality. We have a Petrol Vista in the family done about 25k in 1 yr.

Musicmanaman-I test drove the Aura+ Quadrajet model in the 3rd week of Jan'11 and i felt it was pretty good.I dont know if the AC performance varies between the petrol and diesel versions..as in the compressor cc!

Can anybody can throw some light in this please?

Oh God..I wasn't so impatient even to get married or go abroad.This is making me go nuts!I should be getting a call from the dealer in a day or 2 regarding the arrival of the car from pune.I believe most of the Vista's come with Goodyear tires.I would like to know if should change them to Bridgestone's,Apollo's or any other which offer better grip and less road noise!What would be approx cost difference if i trade in the goodyear's and within how m,any kms should trade in?

I did find some PDI formats in this forum.Is there any one format specific for Hatches or something like that?

Congratulations!!

Vista is surely a good choice. I am driving Vista petrol since Aug'09 and the car has no issues. Like someone mentioned, the A/C is the only down side, but it does cool the cabin after a while.

Also, my exp of Tata A.S.S. has been good so for. No complaints.
