Thanks X_T_A,

That info and the pics of the XM variant(thanks again!) means I have to get rid of that wheel/tyre combo a.s.a.p!

How did you find the white color? Looking for either the Berry Red or the White.

Have you been able to book a Berry Red? Yesterday
at Concorde Motors Bangalore they informed me that Berry Red is not available for booking yet. They said it might take 3-4 weeks more.

Not sure about the delay for Berry Red, however the White looked very good. Especially the contrast with the black on the front grill / blacked out headlamps / rear spoiler looked nice. Found couple of more pics of the XM variant in white.

Suggest you book now keeping colour choice open with an option of deciding after having a look at both colours in person.

Cant find their details and so I call 1800 2097979 !

Seems there is no dealer in Trv for Tiago ( or for any cars?) .
Anyway I was assured that SME of Tiago would call me soon.

Will keep you all posted. I test drove the Figo 1.2, Beat LT 1.2 last day and hence want to know how this would be.

You may DM to Tiago's official Twitter handle with your contact number.
The response is much quicker over there. So I think that will help to schedule TD quickly. That's my personal experience.

There was a writeup in local newspapers about the launch ceremony of Taigo in Trivandrum motors. I placed a request with Tatamotors for a TD of Zest AMT. One guy from Trivandrum motors called me back and said they will be registering their Zest AMT soon and will call me back after it is done.

Hi All,

Really happy to inform you all that TATA motors have one person who's job is to read all the online reviews about Tiago and best part is, this person follows team-bhp regularly and takes the feedback given in here for further processing

I have been posting feedback's given by our fellow bhp'ians on Twitter and based on the post's this person who works for Tata motors called me, asking for more details about the concerns.

Had a long talk and gave all possible feedback's. I stressed on the AC and performance of the petrol tiago.

Regarding poor AC performance:
AC they say could be one of the cases but DEFINITELY not an issue on all Tiago's but yes they are contacting all showrooms and having them check the AC.

Regarding the Petrol tiago's Performance:
All he had to say was "people who drive more powerful car will definitely feel the power is less. Since I own a Nano, he suggested me to test drive the car and give feedback on the performance.

Regarding product knowledge of showroom representatives (sales personal):
That is being taken care of by conducting monthly refresher course to the showroom staff and also conducting audits by send Tata motors personal as a customer.

Summary: TATA is watching our feedback's closely.

May be someone can take an initiative to collate the concern's/feedback's they have w.r.t Tiago and then post it on Twitter.

Tejaswi Motors in Hyderabad quoted that Berry Red will be available only from August 2016.

I test drove this today. I only wanted to TD the petrol top end and hence they got that.

I am impressed even with the engine that I have to go TD the Figo 1.2 again( for the 3rd time) and understand what its 4 cylinder engine is doing!

2 videos for now.

Am in the same dilemma, but rather on the opposite side.

Wondering whether to shell out the extra 2 lakhs for the extra 30bhp and 60nm torque of the Figo Tdci, or go for the Tiago D.

Anyway, how was the experience at Trivandrum Motors, though they are newly opened and will be good for an year or two.

Hope you still have your Safari, how is the service at Mohandas motors?

That's interesting! You find only that as a 2lac rupee worth stuff? Which model? And did you TD the Tiago D? How was it?

They were pretty nice and helpful.
Tata regional sale manager or so directly called me from Cochin and patched me to the sale manager at Tvm over call. My TD was arranged in minutes!

Took to Mohandas once for the 90k service ( search TBHP for its review!). Never went back and now they have shutdown ( think they do service only now).

No, i absolutely adore the Figo TDCi performance. It's just that i find the Tiago overall too good for it's price and extremely VFM.

Did a TD of the Tiago when it was displayed at Lulu mall. Waited 20mins for the diesel to come back after a round, and was about to walk off, when the guys said the petrol was readily available. So TDed the petrol instead.

Yeah, asked cause remember you giving thumbs up for them initially and then having a bad experience. Until the new dealership came Mohandas was the sole Tata dealer after Kulathunkal stopped.

So with all this uncertainty feeling apprehensive about the service aspect.

I get a feel that the marketing buzz for Tiago has gone a bit silent. I hardly see any ads in newspapers. It's too early for reducing the marketing push IMHO. Tata needs to push the Tiago very hard to make it a success. This car is almost a make-or-break launch for them. The stakes are rather high. Tiago has a great potential, just that Tata's sales & Marketing teams should not botch up a wonderful car.

I also feel Tata is slipping on their commitments and timelines. Booked the XZ variant on the 11th of April and was told it would take 4 weeks. That has been revised with no clarity on allocations by TML to the dealers.
