<OFF TOPIC> To V1p3r: Man, that blogsite sure got back some memories. Some things just never change... just gets passed on from from one batch to the next! The chicken eating wednesdays, the teachers, the students (there are students in every batch with some common traits!), the building with its minarets, the spitfire plane... SIGH! I sure miss the good ol' days man!

godspeed.

Alok

Very nice review. Infact, I have just bought a Sierra 20 days ago. It is 1994 model Red colour machine but all original with some scratches on both sides and a serious dent in the right running board.

Initially, I went wrong to diagnose the big thumping jolt the car would feel evertime I press the clutch. I thought that theuniversal crosses or the yoke assy of drive shaft are worn out and went for an immiediate replacement. But later the mechanic got to know that the rear bushes kit of suspension is totally worn out. I got it changed with a Vir set and the problem was eliminated.

Still I face problems like shaky doors, problem with the shifting the gear to the 2nd from ist and a high engine sound when pressing the accelater for picking the speed.

Otherwise, the vehicle is very smooth except for one thing that it vibrates too much after 90-100 kmph.

Fuel consumption is as good as 12 kmpl for city and 15-17 kmpl on highway but you need to keep the rpm anything between 1600 to 2200 rpm.

I would like to get some improvement on the car as I do not like the plastic corners of the rear bumper also adding foot boards and bull bar etc.

Can anybody guide me through ?

Seems pretty cool if you are getting 15-17 kmpl in highways...

The SIERRA will continue to live on for many more years. The only problem is Parents find it difficult to get onto the back, otherwise it is an awesome vehicle, still manages to draw looks and can be customised to any level

Default Re: Long Term Review : 1994 Tata Sierra

Sierra is a quite capable vehicle. The major problem faced by me was in sourcing body panel plastics (wheel arches, such stuff) as they are not kept in stock. only a scrap yard is the only source.
