How much did your OE tyres last?
I goto a Tvm guy.

Why not try the independent one there?

Tyres last 45-50k.

How is the Clutch in the 2.2L Dicor? Is it easy to use? What about the comfort of using it through the different stages of the 1lac kms. Planning on picking up the Tata Xenon. Im guessing they have the same mechanicals, ie same engine,gearbox,clutch.

Its easy unless there's a fault. I changed it at 60k ( which I think was unnecessary). Odo now at 1.10lac and the clutch is still good.

At 90kish I changed the rear.

Ask the mechanic to check the pads. They will suggest if it needs a change (which is based on your usage).

For your reference, check the thread @

The clutch issue was back ( was expecting). Got master cylinder changed at http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/other-...rivandrum.html (Independent Tata Service center - Highway Garage (Trivandrum)).

I was charged 2k for the cylinder, 400rs for labour. I am happy.


Also, they got the fog lamps fixed for 120Rs!!! ( 60Rs for bulb holder and 60Rs for a bulb!) .

Mohandas Motors wanted to replace BOTH fog lamp units to fix it!

Hi JK,

My 4th year servicing is due next month after which extd warranty expires too. My truck has done only ~22k kms, mostly highway runs and very little 4x4 use. Based on your experience do you recommend timing belt change in next service? Manual says 100k kms for belt replacement,but, doesn't say anything about time limit.

JK, have you changed the Shock absorbers and springs or are they still factory fitted ones ?

Trying to understand when they will need replacement. I know it will be based on the usage etc.,

BJ, My beast is due for 3 year service [45K] in a month's time with my ODO reading 40K. So far, my service engineers havent recommended to change the Timing belt change. So, I wouldnt expect yours too at half the ODO reading !

Assuming your truck is 2009 made, and given it has done only 22k since then, you do not really need to change the timing belt.
Typically timing belt is changed at 90-100k or if vehicle is 7-8 years old with no timing belt change so far. Rubber belts (timing belt, alternator belt, power steering belt, etc) become brittle with age hence need replacement.

Better get this checked at the service station.
If you do not get oil changed at 30K service, somewhere down the line, you will be denied extended warranty if your clutch master or slave cylinder fails. I have faced this. Had to pay for the cylinders, because Automobile Sterling in Noida did not change clutch oil at 30K

Was your timing belt ever changed? If not, I suggest you get it looked at. Older safaris had a defective design where timing belt would break within 30K kms, and then you would be looking at a huge expense.
I suggest you get the retro done under extended warranty. Ask the service center to open timing kit and water pump. If any problems are found, push for entire retro kit under extended warranty.

Default Odo @ 1.13 lac, 5yrs

Completed 5years two days ago. Odo at 1.13lac if I remember correctly.
  • Have to find how I can block the air is not to sucked when its in recirculation mode.
  • Have to get 2 new tyres. Thinking of something different this time; other than yokos.
  • Also have to get suspension checked; will be done along with new tyres.
  • Fogs have to be fixed. Guess fuse are blown.

1. Some air will always come into the cabin even in re circulation mode. This is a known feature/glitch.

2. Try Michelins. Suresh and Hari have it on their steeds and are very happy with them.
