Anupmathur, Going purely by the service schedule difference between the 2.2 and the 3.0 which is a glaring 10000kms I think TML is sending a subtle message out on reliability of the new engine from here on.

If a year passes by with significantly reduced complaints regarding Safaris, I would love to own one as well. I just hope that in doing all this the price does not go out of my budget range!

Or maybe its the faith in their service centers. The fewer times it goes to a TASC, the less chance there is of them screwing up their vehicle

This is a good one , sometimes you can do better than them in terms of detecting the problems and its with most of them.

I wish you are right. But I'll give it one YEAR before putting MY money down!

Then either way (with longer service intervals) we hopefully win.

Default safari and bullet

this reminds me of one post on this thread that some bhpian said ""everyone makes way for safari and bullet"" (bullet aka royal enfield)

how very true.

seeing both as white elephants in the maintenance part still makes you want to own one and if you own one to drive / ride with an attitude.

What follows is a personal note / request

You seem to be here in this forum with a single-point agenda - you spend more time here talking against Tata and generally downtalking the Safari than you do talking about your own machine.

I have personally tried to explain to you over PM that this sort of childish one-upmanship is not really what this forum is about, but you do not seem to take hints or even direct personal requests.

Despite this, you are all over the Safari threads - liberally donating smartalec comments and being more than a bit hazy on the facts.

Kindly stick to facts - there are people here on this forum that have more actual experience on the Safari than you can think of. People that have bought the vehicle more than once.

This is not to say that this is a vehicle that is free of faults. Much to the contrary, the Safari owners on this forum have been very upfront and candid about the issues they have faced, preferring not to gloss over the glitches and aggrandize their vehicles as god's gift to mankind - they do not need owners of other vehicles to tell them what the issues with THEIR OWN vehicles are. They know what the issues are, deal with them and get on with it in because the issues with the vehicle are quite trivial compared to what you get out of it.

Kindly show respect to this sentiment. You do not find the same crowd trampling all over your Mahindra threads in the manner that you seem to be doing out here. And despite all that you say here and may say later, I can assure you that they will not do so - that says a lot for the difference in the mentality/mindset between the owners of the two vehicles.

PS: If you do wish to respond, my email is steer@team-bhp.com and we can discuss this offline. For the first time in about 3 years with the forum, I find myself searching for and actually using the 'Ignore user' option.
Steeriod: From your response , I feel the other way around. Some of your comments about this user applies to you also. You sound too inclined towards Safari. The tone of the response sounds like it kindles Tata-Mahindra argument here.

Well I love safari for its look and for its sheer road presence. I love them more than Scorpio or GV or CRV or Captiva. But I dont like them more than Endeavour and Pajero.

Having said that. There are other things that too come to my mind when I think of Safari. Its a great cruiser and offers lot of comfort.

But definitely Tata has miles to go before they can rest on improvising the interior. When u say its a SUV, it should offer me a "chill-cool-suave" interiors. But I find it missing.

But I dont have that much dough to buy a Pajero and Endeavour is too big to drive in a city.

Well, this is a good thread to get answers to the big question - Why Safari?
I think this thread was launched by GTO when the Safari 2.2 was introduced, and I am eager to know how the 2010 Safari compares to the first 2.2?
I think the engine is the same, has there been any changes/fixes to the engine?
How is the interior quality in the 2010 version compared to the 2007 version?

I know some of the cosmetic changes that you cant miss, like the spare wheel cover, but what are the other changes?

-Ever-drooling-want-to-buy-safari-fan,
Suresh.

Note from Mod : Old thread, hence closing
