Great going on this recognition for TATA.

The only Indian company to have such a varied array of automobiles in it offering and one which is venturing into newer territory for its growth.

Not surprising that it evokes strong responses from all around, since they are so many present on the road - everyone has an opinion!

Whatever said - bottom line - kudos to TATA.

Shortbread & ACM: Great points! Couldn't have put it better.

Heck what all you people are discussing? Maruti tops the JD Initial quality study, whereas Tata ACQUIRES THE LOWERMOST POSITION in the study. First and second runner up are Honda and Skoda respectively. Read this news at BS Motoring first.
Maruti comes out tops

I think TATA does give some dependability aspect to whatever they do. Not just that the car is VFM, the customer is comfortable dealing with them.
No question about Maruti. Surprised to see Honda at runners up but then the survey would be with people who have Honda.

According to the latest study -- India Sales Satisfaction Index -- by the market research firm, Maruti Suzuki India (MSI) topped the list of 11 auto-makers, garnering 819 points on a 1,000-point scale.It was followed by Honda and Skoda, with 816 and 812 points, respectively.

Okay, as much as I am happy for Tata and Mahindra...but I will take these rankings that newspapers and magazines do with a grain of salt...

It is simply money making scheme, they either take cash directly for favorable rankings or they take money indirectly through Advertisements.

Though I must also add, that Tata group(among other groups) is known for not giving out such bribes and I have heard from a Maruti Fanboy who works in Automobile industry of a very good case which involved them and Reliance Group.

The two surveys cover totally different parameters. Abhi seems to be going on about JD's 'customer satisfaction survey' which deals with the car buying experience. Have to agree walking into a Tata showroom is not the most exciting experience.

The point was that a survey that puts Skoda on number 3 for Sales Satifaction, should be taken with a 'heap' on salt. Recent ownerships too tell us that the 'sales' experience at Skoda was very poor (especially for the Fabia).

They are overloaded, overworked, irregularly serviced and juiced till the car can move no more.

This is what Tata cars can do, which is mostly overlooked by us who can afford more expensive options but not by many for whom affrdability and running costs are a concern. If every car they made was all bad news, this co. would have been wound up long ago let alone stand high in customer rankings. That is not the case is it?!! There are lacs of them going about their business on our streets and slowly and steadily all around the world. The likes of Tata & Mahindra do have their drawbacks, but they have their strengths and not to forget their indigenous independence, for these reasons alone they deserve to be where they are today.
How true! Let all those guys who look down on Tata cars use ( or rather abuse ) their premium cars like an Indica/Indigo cabbie does and see how long their premium badge lasts.

My experience with Tata dealerships & workshops in the last 2 years has been excellent, more so with the workshop. A few days back when one of the power window switches were not working I was furious and refused to send the car to the workshop. I was swept off my feet when they agreed to come to my house (a good 20Km away from the workshop) and replace the switch. They actually did the same the very next day itself. Kudos to Tata service!!!

We also get threads that say, there are not many defects in Manza, lets prepare a list. Don't remember having such threads for any other manufacturer.
