I was at Dingra motors Gurgaon last weekend and was enquiring about the Zest and the new Safari, can you believe they did not even a Test vehicle for TD and their team did not even appear to care about it (they didn't even note down my name/contact)

Well back to our loving Manzas; I have heard that TML has stopped the production of Manza and only those lying with the dealers are the ones available for sale. Is that how it looks in your city too ? Do you see any new Manza's on road of late? I am sure the resale value of the vehicle will take a hit. My bigger fear is that TML may stop selling spare parts of the car soon making it even more difficult for folks like us who love this car.

Is there any other active forum of Manza owners where one could keep in touch with active folks talking about their ownership?

Till then, Take care & God bless!
Agree with everything said on this thread. Yes, it is an underrated car, yes it's extremely VFM, yes it's very reliable, yes the ASC is poor.

I have a 2011 Manza (pre-club class) 78K kms on the odo. Never once has been it unreliable. I've owned 3 Tata vehicles in the past including the Manza and a Venture and a Nano. The ASC used to be good but it slowly deteriorated. And this was a problem as I couldn't find FNGs willing take up service of the Venture and the Nano. Finally had to sell them off. They were good vehicles in their own classes though. Again, very VFM. Luckily for me I could find a good FNG to take care of the Manza. Now the ASC seems to have improved and I am back there for the time being. Was thinking of selling it off at a point, but again, nothing short of a Passat or a Superb has this much space in sedan class. Also, Manzas don't sell easily, especially now since the model has been discontinued.

So finally decided to keep running her till she no longer can. Still in excellent condition. Running Castrol Magnatech 5W-40 now. The old bridgestones had almost died. Upsized and went for 195/60 R15 Michelin XM2s recently. Yet to complete 1000 kms on them. Will give a review when done.

One thing I have noticed is that the front suspension make a creaking sound when going over hard bumps. Fixed one time at ASC. But came back in a few hundred kms. So I left it at that.

In other news, I saw the Tiago at the ASC the other day. And the interiors looked fantastic! The review is out on Team-BHP. Let's hope it turns the sales for Tata.
