You are very lucky, or was it that I was very unlucky, I owned one indica for 2 years and that was the worst car experience I ever had. Drove around 30K Kms before I sold it.

Congrats on your 100K mileage.

yeah you are right, but the mud flaps have not been fixed on purpose and i guess the pic justifies this nicely

thanks a lot manish, yes tata cars can be quite a pain to own but i have been pretty lucky with my buy and thats largely thanks to the extended warranty i had opted for.
extended warranty with a tata car must be made a law

Good review Superboy.

Get the suspension checked/replaced. I got mine replaced after 1Lac Kms and the car feels like new.

PS: Welcome to the 100K Club as Hrishi (@Hrag) mentioned

Cheers
Nithin

If you are getting the work done at TASC, you will get front struts and back sets with bushes (Gabriel or Monroe)but If you are doing it outside you will get Shocks, Coil springs and bushes separately.

Check for any worn out ball joints and trailing arm bushes also.

This will cost you between 7K to 12K depending upon what all do you change and where you change it from.

BTW thanks for your comments on my car .

Cheers

Nithin

And if I am not mistaken, Nitin has got to the 1L mark in his red beauty in just a shade over 3 years, remarkable ! Too many Kannur trips, eh, Nitin ?

Ya buddy, in 38 months to be precise.

My parents are at kannur hence the frequent visits. Also cant rely on the Bangalore~Kannur Bus operators.
