Congratulations. I recall you anxiously waiting on the 2.2 for months. So the wait is finally over.

Driving impressions we know, some living with the beast impressions are sought for. When is your first "reclaim"ing happening?

Realize that it locks itself even if the door is left open and no key activity after sometime.

Wait for the driving experiences post after few days.

This happens with a lot of the remote lock/immobiliser. Happens on my Ikon too.

Congrats Dadu on your new Safari.

I want to ask you and other Safari/SUV owners something, did your wives agree easily for a SUV?

I wanna buy a Safari badly, but wifey just don't like the SUV look, and is dead against it. And I don't wanna buy something, against which she has such strong feelings. So now I am deciding between Corolla and Civic :-(

Thanks 1100D, akroy and ntomer for the wishes.

I know power ranger but it caught me off-guard, it was too new for me.

Its difficult initially, the first comment is, "its too big" even my wife was apprehensive, that time it was between Scorpio OR Safari.

But the test drive changed it all, take her for TD, show her Safari Ads, crux is too take Safari TD first and then for the sedans.

We had taken Safari TD along with Civic/Corolla's. She despised Safari's interiors :-( and wasn't too impressed with exteriors either :-((

Looks like I will end-up with a Civic...

Hey Dadu

Congrats on becoming a proud owner of the B E A R

It is a marvel and the B E A R definitely grows on you. I hope you checked for card board sheets between the radiator and the condenser.

In the meantime, both the pandit and my wife look stunned, pandit asks "not starting" I reply in a faint demotivated voice, no, try the other key, no luck.

Suddenly I press the "Unlock" button on the remote and twist the key, roar....it starts.

It happened to me too on the 3rd day. And keeping in mind the card board experience I too was shocked as the key was turning but there was no crank.

But before I could panic I saw the lock indicator blinking above the fuel gauge as it was night time I immediately noticed it and unlocked the car. Then with just 1/2 a crank the B E A R roared and I was off on the road making my own road......

Sir DADU,

Congratz on your new truck.

I will mention your reference to Jagdeesh while I meet his end of Dec, so I could bargain for the freebies as well. However, when I spoke to him last, he only had the mud flaps & floor mat to offer.

Thanks for the inputs....do you share your real name as well???? only for reference purposes??

@ harjeev,

I too have experienced this in my indigo. I feel this has got to do with the auto cop that I have installed. Earlier, my car used to start even when the "locK" was pressed in the autocop. Offlate, I have realised that it does not work, similar to your experiences that the engine does not crank. Only when I unlock it, it works.

Strange after a long time....but I could co-relate happily to your experiences too & will keep this in mind - may be for all types of vehicles...may be!!
