Please note that the road tax in Karnataka is steep.

Does anyone have a clue whether I can travel on temporary registration across state borders?

I have a quote on the Tata Safari Ex 4X2 the regn charges are 39176 & Insurance is 28268 (from A-One Motors) I believe it should be the same across all the dealers(in New Delhi) but on the insurance there might be a slight difference. What I think has happened is that the dealer must have mixed up the insurance with the regn charges. The on road price is 937827 (incl 2150 accessories Pack which is optional)

I mine case too there was seperate insurance charges. (Varying insurance charges is acceptable since it depends upon the insurance company) But varying registration charges? Its really confusing for me. Initially i thought they are quoting me for some other place in NCR (Noida etc). But when confirmed they both said its for delhi...

I will confirm with them with the exact reason and will u people know in case someting wierd or hidden

in any case, the risk doesn't seem to be worth taking (i believe the vehicle cannot be insured until it gets registered. please correct me if i'm wrong)

by the way, we seem to be going off-topic. wanting to see more of TD and ownership experiences. adc and the others, please feed us with more news from your cars

Thumbs up Test Drive on a Safari 2.2 VX 4x4

Hi guys. I have been following this thread for some time now. Now that I actually rode the beast I could not wait to share the experience.

As soon as I asked for the test drive Concorde Chennai promptly sent me a vehicle. I have been reading about problems on the VX and/or 4x4 and dealers being reluctant to let it be driven/pushed. To the contrary I was given a 4x4 VX without asking for it.

Well I work at Sholinganalloor which Chennai folks would be familiar with as lying on the mother of all bad roads- The Old Mahabalipuram road. To add to the terrain's variety of potholes we have whole halves of the road piled with 1 meter high gravel for kilometers. I was on this terrain that we decided to try the Safari out.

As soon as I stepped into the Safari the insides looked much better in the beige theme. The console is familiar but the new clocks are much better with the dash of colour. Slipping it into first and gently easing out the clutch I turned it around. Must say the long clutch travel would take some time getting used to. I had to lumber around behind a truck till I got an opening and pressed the pedal. I must say acceleration is a breeze.Changing through gears I did not find anything to complain about the gearbox or the power delivery. I was doing a smooth 90 going over every pothole on the road I could find and being amazed by the excellent ride quality.
Now I during the bends I found that the steering lag of the 3.0 was also gone. This thing kept getting better. Having confidence in instantaneous response of the power steering by now I could no longer bear another lumbering truck in my path with no sign of an opening to over take it. The car and its salesman were coaxing me to go on and get adventurous so I accelerated with two wheels on the metre high gravel and the other two on the pothole ridden rod and the vehicle just took off now in its element leaving the trucker open mouthed.

A few Kilometers later i turned around and the salesman was aghast. He wanted me to try it out for some more time. He was a nice chap who kept repeating that it was a low rpm high torque vehicle and can give an average of 10.5 in 2nd and 3rd gear ciy traffic. I fact he remarked that the 2nd and 3rd gear are all you would use in Chennai.

One the way back I climbed onto the gravel portion of the road a did some riding entirely on gravel befor I climbed down and got back to my office.

My take:-
  • The engine is much more driveable than the 3.0 both in city traffic and for the no-holds barred kind of driving
  • Ride has improved from the 3.0 with very less body roll. The SCORPIO we rode last week on the same road rides like a rickshaw on these roads
  • The superb new look gives a sportier character to what was always a grand vehicle.
  • The plastics look better in beige
  • The car feels lighter to drive and steer
  • The only issue is some engine noise in the cabin. Strangely though the horn is not very audible
All in all I must say I am overwhelmed and for once this is a car that feels quite close to perfect. At least thats my perception. Hats of the the new beast in town.

On many occaisions t/r is taken when you buy the vehicle from a particular state but want to register it inn another state. So not travelling outside state is kind of pointless.
I have driven a t/r getz across 5 states and every time papers were checked they only checked whether the t/r had expired or not.
