both the OE and aftermarket ones should pose a similar load. I avoid using the windows on battery as far as possible

Hi,

Good to meet another happy TATA petrol owner. I have met other happy and very happy petrol car owners in the TATA Indica yahoo group. But then the other end of spectrum is also seen, the unahappy lot! It is subjective.

I had a short acquaintance with my cousin's Indigo GLX and as you said was quite impressed with the engine, though the mileage was just above 10 while I had it.

If you can, after your next service, please put up the details.

Autocop is a good suggestion. You have other brands too.

Any electrical equipment put in would be a load. As far as power windows are concerned, if you operate them while the engine is running, it should be fine.

Please add me to the list of Happy Tata Customers. I have Indica XETA GLS 1.2. I am very happy the way my car responds and has handled very well. (Touch Wood).

I use my car most of the time, outstation trips. I have done Bangalore-Chickmaglur, Tirupathi, Sringeri, Ooty, Kudremukh and Kemmanagundi. I have never faced any issues with the car and its performance.

I have touched 120 speeds without even any vibrations. The car was steady and smooth. One more, I feel really safe when I drive my Indica.

Mileage: City 12kmpl (50% AC), Long Drives 17-18 (50% AC)

Only thing which lacks is the instant power and wheel diameter. However, I dont like Alloy wheels for Indica. Does not look good.

Bottom Line: VFM - Indica XETA GLS 1.2 - 3.2L.
With Seat Covers, Blaupankt System+Speakers, Teflon Coating, 3yrs of Warranty.

The seating comfort for 5 people is very comfortable. No rattling as well unlike Swifts.

Don't know how true this is, but this is my latest observation. Recently I switched to petrol from Shell bunk. I used to get fuel from Shell only but when the prices rose I started going to government owned fuel bunks. Anyway back to my observation, I have got 2 tank full from Shell and my CS GLS is giving an average of 14 with AC always on. This is for Bangalore city drive. I am must I was pleasantly surprised with this FE.

I think the govt owned petrol bunks which sell these "Speed", "power" etc are not good enough. Has anyone also come across such an observation. Also, the pickup and smoothness of engine has increased. I have decided as far as possible I would stick to Shell fuel.

Crosscap how is your CS GLS doing?

If you could put up the service costs, it would be interesting to compare the costs with the diesel one.
Hi rajesh, I have posted the cost details in another thread at:
