Just a quick update, My safari is near 50000 km and during general service concorde said they need to replace rear link (or is it linkrod) bushes, he said totally 8 bushes and cost is around 3000/- This is 6+ years old Petrol safari and few days I confirmed after checking bushes need replacement although didn't tell concorde but they found it which is good sign.

Please pour feedback about if linkrod has 8 bushes at rear and cost of 3000/- is reasonable.

Thanks and Regards,

Ravi.

Last week during the mini meet we had Anuj pointed out in his new Safari that the airflow adjustment knob did not operate smoothly, it was sort of stuck in one position and it was taking a lot of effort to switch the positions from one direction of air flow to another.

Today, I tried the same in my Safari and found that even in my car the switch was not operating smoothly, anyone else here having similar issues?

What could be the solution? I am anyway giving the vehicle for service next week and will ask the ASC to look into it. I would like to know if there is any particular part in the switch assembly to be looked into specifically?

Cheers.

Same problem in my safari too. When vehicle was under warranty, I gave this complaint multiple times, but no proper fix was found. Now I do not want to report this complaint as they will replace the console and charge $$$

Does anyone recommend KHT motors in BLR for service of truck -2.2 VTT 4x4 Ex at 15K km? It is due in a few days of run and I'll need to travel to Kerala after a week.

Please comment.

Viju, KHT motors is good if you have any rapairs to do for the vehicle. For normal service I would recommend the new Prerana Motors on Hosur road. In my personal experience KHT motors bills more for any type of job.

Thanks LionX. Since they are new to me and not many members seem to be their customers (for service/repairs), i decided to stick with CM on Hosur rd. Their Mysore road facility is too far for me and do not want to get into the mess on that road.

Now at least everyone from advisors, mechanics and manager know me at CM on Hosur rd, many not be very pleasantly though. The result of escalations has been that I get preferential treatment now!

Now am typing this message from the workshop.

@lodra: This is a problem with any small capacity deisel engine which depends on the turbo to spool up for torque/bhp. I have faced a similar situation on an extremely steep slope in my Scorpio as well. In an extremely sleep slope, don't release the clutch like you normally do on level road. Bring the RPM up above 1500 so the turbo is engaged and then release the clutch the engine rpm will continue to pick up. In a very sleep slope if you release the clutch before the turbo spools the engine cannot generate enough rpm due to the load of the vehicle pulling it back down the slope.

Default Vacuum Hoses

Has anyone changed the vacuum hoses for Vacuum Modulator, Turbocharger, EGR valve & throttle valve ?
As per the service schedule, this is supposed to be done @60K.Mine has done 74K and wanted to get it done during the next servicing(somehow I missed this during 60K service and the TASC did not oblige either !).

Also,what's the expected life of the drive belts,any idea ?

Drive belts are normally changed at the 80k service for the 3 litre, not sure what it is for the 2.2, should be there in the manual.

@lodhra

For a normally loaded safari 2.2, you have plenty of torque to climb reasonable gradient without resorting to handbrake and waiting for the turbo to spool up. Check your car for excess rolling resistance - keep up the normal tire air pressure. Unload excess weight if you plan on climbing steep mountain.

In fact you can dispense with the spare tire when you are driving in city. I have climbed almost all mountains in the south and I have never felt any lack of power.
