If it had been free service, I would have paid 750rs less. Rest is chargeable

Moreover I took this service of my own accord, because oil has not been changed in this vehicle since manufacturing(may 08), and I have used it in 4L for extended periods of time.
Moreover this 4x4 problem was something which had to be rectified.
Now I intend to get next service at 15500, and thereafter every 15K kms.

As for fishtailing, lockup should result in a straight line skid, not a 90 degree handbrake turn like maneuver. Tata provides a mechanism to prevent this, which was faulty(adjustment issue), the service station rectified it.

hey Tanveer,

Your safari has a Punjab regn number. Please do tell me have you ever had any issues with the police, at the check posts, or at tolls with this? Also the address on your license is that too the same as the cars address or of noida.
I am asking this as i am thinking of buying a M&M Major 4x4 for OTR's and other adventure stuff but the problem is I cant get it registered in Delhi (non euro III). I would have to get it registered in Hoshiarpur, Pb.

Please advise
Harjeev

I think you have been grossly misinformed. The Safari LX in Bombay starts @ 8.5lakhs approx. As far as buying Indian or japanese is concerned, its strictly personal choice and requirements. Its certainly true that japanese quality is top notch and comparisions cannot be drawn with Indian auto companies.
I drive a Prado too and honestly there cannot be comparsions. 67000kms in 20 months of ownership with total offroad abuse and not a sound from anywhere. Infact the way the suspension has held up, im just awed.

Default Front Hubcap falls off

I noticed this some time back.
Can I buy just one from TASS or do I have to buy 4?
Do I need to get a new one immediately(no harm in continuing without it for some time?)
Anyways, how much is the cost?

C'mon Tanveer, you're lucky you're not having to pay 350/= (which is what it used to cost initially).

For Skoda (as in Fabia), please add on another "0" at least. LOL

Is it just cosmetic or does it serve any other function? Its not airtight, so I doubt it will stop dust/water etc., so I guess I can delay the change? Or I can probably put the rear one for now on front wheel

I would put the rear one there. With your OTR antics, not sure what you'd get into that hub. Its not totally cosmetic, its additional protection I'd say.

It's just a cosmetic thing, Tanveer.
Negotiate a discount for buying a set of four; with your kind of usage those should last you for the year at least!

I think I will require one every 5K kms
So a set of 4 it will be, for now, I will just use the rear one.
I have seen hrags safari does not have any for a long time, no surprise, with all the rock roading he does
