Lets hope we soon have a 500+ bhp unblown 6.3 litre V8 from Tata.
Please dont compare JTD's to Tata engines's . May be I am ignorant about the fact that the new one s great but JTD is right at the pinnacle of Refinement and technology . Fiat with its expertise has finetuned this engine to a great extent . It would be unfair to compare with that . Why dont you get Hyundai's Crdi units for c o m p a r o ? both have been developed using external agencies and in limited time span

Tata is far from making quality cars. I had bought a Indica and sold in 8 months coz i had so many small problems like oil leak, wipers getting jammed coz it was not used for 2 months,etc.... Even 2 friends of mine bought Indica and feel its more ecnomical car than pleasure car. Recently my friend got a Indica turbo and the engine siezed in 4k kms. Not sure what exactly happened but he got a free replacement of engine which took 1 month. After the engine was replaced in 2 weeks the car started smoking again. I think he will be taking car again for check up. Even in my apt a person had bought a new Safari Dicor a month ago and i saw Tata guys already working on i with bonnet open....

Tata cars are far from reliable and not good to drive cars. They are only super ecnomical cars.

It basically said that TATA has launched new varients of its models with new DICOR engines etc.

Smile good news!!!!

now thats good news. if tata is to build a safari with awesome power, make sure it has a smooth gearbox. refinement is more important than comfort. comfort is secondary. safari has its presence in europe n italy and not in middle east. why is it so????

The ticker attributed the statements to Rajiv dube. Basically the ticker talked about DICOR engines and something about Indica. I looked for a repeat of that ticker but couldn't catch it.

The same program will be repeated at 9:00Pm and again at 11:00PM today, I believe its about Rajiv Dubey accepting the NDTV profit leadership award for Automobiles, in the category of four-wheelers for the year 2007. Rajiv Dube, President - Passenger Car Business Unit, TATA, received the award in New Delhi on July 27 from the Union Finance Minister, Mr. P. Chidambaram.

So it must be about some comments being made by him in an interview with NDTV.
