I completely agree with you on that. May be they cut few portions from this and create something! There is a similar one for Tata Safari doing the rounds.

Thanks for sharing ambujlal. The location seems the same as Safari clip. Maybe they shot both together. I wish TATA promoted it a li'l more!

You can not go to an underground parking area in a Mall in a Xenon; Nothing serious you can't get a parking slot.
This guy experienced it at the Nucleus Mall in Kochi. Initially he was asked to park outside but later was accommodated with difficulty.

Default Re: Tata Xenon the million buck, ahem, truck!

I'm looking at buying a pre-owned Xenon 4x2. The truck will be used mainly as a farm vehicle, with family/lifestyle bits thrown in now and then, besides being the primary means to commute to the farm, about 100km away. No plans for off-roading save for the mud-roads/trails in the farm environment.

I may close a deal at about 5L for a 2009 model/2010 bought truck done 20,000+ km so far. This has the 2.2 DiCor engine with no ABS/Airbags.

The owner says everything's mechanically and cosmetically fine with the truck, except that it suffers from uneven front tyre wear despite a regular wheel alignment schedule.

I've never owned a Tata vehicle before, and having read and heard plenty of horror stories, I cant help wondering a little, especially since I'm buying pre-owned. Please help with these questions, all inputs most welcome:

1. Is this a fair price?

2. What should I look out for in a pre-owned Tata truck? (Engine/Electricals/Suspension etc.)

3. What should I worry about on a more or less regular basis?

4. What are typical maintenance/service costs? Periodic or otherwise?

6. What fuel efficiency can one expect? The owner claims 16/12 for highway/city use. Is this accurate?

7. Is the availability of spares an issue?

8. Anything else I should be looking for.

Thanks in advance!

Loved the review i hope things have changed in 4yrs as i'm considering one of the following:

1. Bolero camper.
2. Scorpio getaway
3. Xenon XT

I've just started to do my homework so haven't yet confirmed on any option from the above.

Unless you are looking for used vehicles, you can't get all the three registered in Bangalore as they are all BS-III.

To top that Camper and Xenon DLE (XT is higher priced by atleast 3L IIRC) are only available in yellow plates.
