Default Re: Tata Indica Vista D90 : Official Review

I was trying to edit post but my internet on mobile went down.
I also noted hard clutch, would like to know the cost of clutch over haul.
Presently negatives are more than positives so till I get it very cleanly checked the car decision is on hold
I believe that car has done around 50000 kms and meter is tempered
Regards

Presently I am in dual mind. Only positive is price. Need to get service details from company.
Need guidance on Why ABS light is constantly ON. What can be reason? How many kms Tyres go away, they are Bridgestone
Thankx
Now the equation has changed a bit. For the details you have mentioned carwale quote for a fair condition car is around 4.57 lacs. Refer the details below.

Not sure when the owner got the car from showroom, but assuming 18 months of ownership, 35K kms running is definitely on the higher side (averaging 2k kms per month). ABS indicator, hard clutch, worn out tyres etc all indicate that the car was used very roughly. Also you are doubting that the odo might have been tampered with. It is better to stay away from this car even if it is being offered to you at a discount, god knows what problems would crop up once you start driving it.

Thankyou AutoIndian for the reply. I am not seeing any benefit in selling my 43000 run wagon R and invest 2L more for this car.

So the car is dropped and hunt continues

My Vista D90 has gone in for third service today. It has 12k on the odo and has compelted 1 year in august this year.

I received a call from the service advisor that the cost for this servicing will be around 5-6k. He cited the cost of oil change, oil filter and air filter and wheel balancing. Is this cost normal for a third free servicing ?

Yes that is a normal estimate. You'll most probably get the final invoice of a lower amount. For 12k, I think you could have opted only for an air-filter cleaning instead of change. Works OK for a city like Pune.

Which A.S.S. have you dropped the car at?

Yeah that's the best place. You'll probably get the bill lesser than quoted. If it was Concorde, I'd have had few specific points to pay attention to when you went to collect the car back .

I bought my D90 ZX+ couple of months after yours, I had my first 2 services at Concorde Mumbai and then the third on at Concorde Bangalore. I would say your quote is too high. I highest I paid was 2.5k , that too when I got the underbody & outerbody treatment done all inclusive, otherwise the bill is not over 500 bucks.

Have you reported any problem with the steering system or tyres? Why do a wheel balancing without any actual problem?

Its impossible to get that done in 500. Only engine oil for quadrajet costs more than 900rs. Much more if synthetic. Underbody coat should be around 1-2k if 3m.

The bill can be that low only if you have some AMC plan that covers oil and other fluids.

I did not have one but purchased it this time which is valid for the next two years. Got the car back yesterday and they have done a fair job. The cladding (is it?) under the front bumper was scratching the road at almost all the speed bumps was my only complaint and they got it back in shape.

Are you referring to the air-deflector / air-dam that deflects air? Had it gone lose? Or it was fouling with the speed bumps even in OEM position? How did they fix it?

Not the air deflector / air dam. It was something under the engine, maybe the plate that protects it at the bottom. I had hit a stone and it had bent (lip protruded). They soft hammered it back into shape and did not charge me.

Smile Re: Tata Indica Vista D90 : Official Review

Got my 3rd free service(1yr) done a few weeks back at the Concorde, Silk Board center. Very happy after the oil change - the engine has become more peppy and butter smooth.

Since I had an AMC, there were no additional costs excepts some weights - about Rs. 200 after wheel balancing. So the engine oil used for the D90 is semi-synthetic as for the Manza and not fully synthetic. The fully synthetic would have costed 4k or so was what the SA told me.

As for AMC, what I heard from the SA was that it is useful for someone who drives a lot coz brake pad replacement is also covered but mine is only hit 5k after a year - so he was advising it wasn't wise to go for AMC in my case. Was wondering how much I had saved by paying Tata 8k for the 2yrs AMC when I picked the car. Any thoughts folks?
