Default Protest against Tata Motors.EDIT Supreme Court Orders Tata to repair Sumo (pg.40)

This was seen by Sam, Vivek Phadnis, Mclaren, Shravan and me at Vaahan Yatra...

We were very angry that this sort of thing still happens to consumers... Spoke to the owners, and it seems it was the first Sumo Victa in Karnataka. The alloys show that it's probably a high-end model.

Worst of all, the next day some Tata representatives came and ripped these stickers off...disgraceful...

Well they must have got a really bad lemon which sucked this bad....But who/what gives the Tata people the right to come and rip the stickers off of the car? Wasn't there any resistance at all from the people who put the car on display?

Hey McL and Sam.. Didn't the customer protest against the Tata representatives touching his/her car??? I would have sued them if they'd touched my vehicle....

This is very sad to see, especially the reps coming and rippin the stickers off... SAD...

There was a huge commotion and I believe an FIR has been filed by the owners...

Ripping off the stickers is criminal damage. Good job they have got a FIR registered.

A unique but more effective way to protest, but who gave the rights to tata representative to remove those stickers, it should have been filmed/clicked while removing and given it to media and local newspaper to print. only this way these people will learn.
Hope somebody reports this to higher authorities in TaTa.

Default I know the Owner of this Vehicle

I have know the Owner's of the Vehicle for Quite Sometime. This is their "Second Sumo". The First being the NA version.

They Maintain the Vehicle Very Well. Even the Earlier Sumo was almost like New with over a Lac KM on it. I can understand the Frustration. I guess anybody can after spending so much Time n Money.
