+1.

You should have put your foot down, especially if it was not registered. Very important to take delivery in daytime.

But shocked and very disappointed that Concorde is doing this.

@memo45_m, I think you showed a lot of excitement at the dealers, and gauging that, he presumed that you'd take anything which has the 'Xenon' logo on it.
Nevertheless, the dealer is at complete fault here.
You should get a brand new vehicle.

As for the GM, you should write to TML & make sure they roast his behind. This kind of behaviour is totally unacceptable!!

Agree with the above two posts! Why did you not walk out when you knew about the vehicle? First mistake.

But, even now, has the registration been done? If not, you can still back out.

But then, are you looking for more discounts or the right vehicle for the price you paid?

And yes, do write to TML!

Concord!!!! And I thought they had some integrity!

memo, my dear friend, i simply dont understand why you went ahead with this particular vehicle/dealer very well knowing that the vehicle was suspect and the way the dealer is treating you. What exactly are you looking for ? I get an impression that you are more than happy to accept a discount, even without getting to know the extent to which this particular car might have been abused. My suggestion, if you havent yet signed any documents, just give the dealers a piece of your mind and write to TML. You are not buying a cheap car mind you, and you are putting in a lot of your hard earned money on this car, and for this kind of money i would expect that i get a good car and a decent treatment from the dealer and you are not getting both, so dont seem to get the point as to why you are so particular about this discount thing and going ahead with this dealer.

Take it up seriously, you never know what the car has been through specially since most of us handle test cars badly. As someone said complain(in written to tata motors) and also file a case with the police immediately.

Can you take delivery of a car in Bangalore without registration?

Legally in Bangalore the vehicle cannot leave the dealer premises unless it is registered or going towards registration.

Usually dealers will not release the vehicle unless it is registered (Temp / Permanent) - else you need to pay a hefty fine if caught.

Cheers,

And what do you file the case as - cheating? They dont their faces from their rear here in bangalore. He will have too many problems to fix. Go to consumer court and take this up with TML.

I have to agree with most people here. You should have simply refused to take delivery of the vehicle.

Long ago, I refused to take delivery of my vehicle because the dealer fixed a different set of alloys from the one I chose, never mind the fact that alloys were a free offer from the dealer . The dealer had to give in and gave a written undertaking that I was free to change the alloys at their expense, even after delivery of the vehicle.

My sympathies Memo. I dont think the police complaint would be of much help, since they promise a new delivery in 3-5 days.

Take this to Tata and get this resolved with them, with photographic and written proofs (if can be acquired) from the dealer. Tata wouldnt sack the GM, but expect a lot of respect when You walk-in to the showroom again.

Edit: Coming to think of the GM; post resolution, offer the GM a party at Royal Orchid hotel and dump the bill (and everything else You could think-of) on him.

Bhaiyo, Why take delivery in the first place ? If the GM was so right , he would never offer your compensation!
Complain to Tatas customer care and blow this over the top.30 thousand discount is chillar against the act of crime that was commited.

Are you interested in discounts or taking the new vehicle. They have clearly offered you a new vehicle in 3-4 days. If you are not happy with what you have been provided / offered than opt for new vehicle which will be given within 3-4 days.
