TDs mean test drive.
The vehicle was again put on lift after the fine tuning and checked for equal turning in both directions.
So hopefully, things should remain fine!

Hi Tanveer - Help me understand, did you ask the Service centre to decrease the turning radius beyond the prescribed limit, and therefore, this resulted in whatever you went through?

Reason i ask is two fold.
1. By improving the turning radius , is this such a drastic improvement?
2. Is it risky to do this or is it just that this service centre didnt do a good job of it

Glad that you could notice the issue and take action.

No. I went to the service center and told them oil is leaking. After 4 days I get my car back with no oil leaking. ZF(the mfr) did an overhaul for 5000, Tata took 1038, and 12% the govt stole. So 6700 rs later, there was no leak.
Little did I know, what kind of trouble I was going to get into.
