it'll probly be launched by 2010 end. Called Vista Ignis and shall have ABS & Airbags as well.
It may feature the same 90bhp engines from the fiat stable

He asked me to SMS the vehicle no and the part side (left hand or right hand) so that he could order it and call me once he has the part. So far good. Lets wait and see how this goes.

Apart from this noticed another problem yesterday night - lights of the driver side power windows gone kaput. Though not a serious issue but still it nags. On this problem the TASC guy told "no problem sir - switch will be replaced wen you come the next time".
An Update. Recieved a call from the dealer regarding the rusted rear quarter glass division bar. This part was replaced with a new one. Since under warranty - hence no charges. Also the lights of driver side power windows have now started glowing.
The whole activity took around half a day.

Isint it a bit early in the day to rust
I mean its not even monsoons and its just 3 months old
The car had gone for its 2nd service at 5300kms and was told that the rear quarter window pane was out of stock and would be ordered. After about a week I did call up and asked for an update on the same and was told it was still out of stock, an order was placed to pune, but the said item was not available there too.

Then the pune call-centre calls up for feedback and I give a big 0 (zero) for a particular question about how the job was done.
Immediately on the 2nd day of the call I get a call from the TASC that the part has arrived and I can leave the car for half a day. the part was changed and looks as good as new now.

Job done, car washed, interior cleaning done. bill : Rs. zero/-
cheers!!

Nice to hear that feedback given to TATA are "taken care of" immediately. Seems effective.

Thats the petrol engine that you are talking about. I have seen pics of the car on many a site.
What I am talking about is the diesel engine with the VGT. As of now this engine is present in the Linea Multijet & the Manza Quadrajet.
Thus I dont see this engine coming into the Punto or the Vista any time soon. So the question still remains unanswered - Can we plonk the 90BHP Quadrajet VGT engine or not?

If i am not wrong, Punto 90PS VGT has already been displayed at Auto expo 2010. So TATA might also come up with VGT version of Vista!

Need urgent help:
I had parked my car near a building site a few days back in the morning. When I came back I was shocked to see that there were innumerable cement spots on the whole car including the glass portions. Rubbing with detergent water didn't help much & I ended up with a few scratches on the body.
Is there any solution besides getting a fresh coat of paint on the whole car. I somehow dont feel like doing that since the car is just 1 year old & I have never ever got any of my car re-painted in the past.
Should I give it for polishing 1st? Problem is that the guy whom I trust for polishing is refusing to give me a guarantee that the spots will vanish. Please suggest an alternative place for getting the polishing done.

Any help, suggestions will be highly appreciated...

Guys come on... No answers? I dont believe this or is this something too trivial & unimportant?

There are threads which talk about removing cement from the car paint. Visit a professional car detailing guys (3M authorized shop or someone similar) and check if they can help remove the stains. Dont use detergent at all on the paint, it might do even greater damage.

What is the interval of changing Oil in Quadrajet?Of course ,I know 10,000kms as per owner's manual.but ,Do this QJD Engine needs 5000kms Oil Change ?

Overfilling - I hope it is 3.2 litres of Oil.And Dipstick will show the actual quantity?

Many in the forum do change at 5K if I am not wrong. Myself doing so especially since most of my trips are short.

Last time, they charged for 3.7 litres but fortunately it was just at the top level mark. (discussed in the thread earlier too)

[quote=greenhorn;1184284]

Hi ! Have a query for you.
Just as Tata was charging dough for 3.7 lit for the vista quadrajet?
Are they charging for 500ml extra on the Indigo diesel ?
5.5 Lit is what the manual states as the qtty. of engine oil for the TC engined Indigo.
In reality i cant fill more than 5 lit. without overfilling and that too exceed the max. dipstick mark level by 2/3 mm.
So whats the story ?
Somebody suggested that .5 lit of old oil remains inside .
Any ideas since you have the same engine ?

I'm billed for 5.5l. Once when i gave them 5+1l cans from outside, they gave me a half empty 1l can back. So i imagine they need more than 5L.

highnoon, was the oil filter changed? I think dr trrk might be able to help better

Hi ,
If you gave them 5+1 , they'll have to show 5.5 being used. would they not ?. How would they justify the extra half a litre that they been milking for so long? ( if at all )
Have you ever got the oil changed outside of TASS?
Most mechs. i spoke to just laughed when i told them manual specifies 5.5 lit.:(
I did change the filter , i also changed the oil at operating temp., also lifted the dipstick both while draining and filling to prevent air lock, gave it a long time to drain. Had even used a flush during one of the service. so the chances of that much old oil being left behind seem remote.
My mech is an oldtimer, regularly gets mercs and even some vintage rally cars form around juhu area.
I am confused as hell.
