Is Indica Vista Sales very low? Believe it or not, I have so far never seen any Vista on road in Bangalore. I had seen one on NH47 in Kerala earlier this month though.

As part of the painting process, manufacturers put on a anti-rust coat through a process called cathodic electrolyte dipping. I don't think there is any need for any additional anti-rust treatment

The deliveries are behind in the western region as well.

In between all this talk about the safire and the quadrajet , has anyone TD'd the TDI version?
Can the engine lug the body without issues?
Has the glue/Rubber gearbox really improved ?

Imagine it would've improved, remember reading somewhere that the TDi uses a Fiat gearbox as well, so the shift quality should be on par with the other models.

Wishes to all for getting a new car

And thank you for your patronage to kill FIAT-INDIA saga and erase it indefinitely along with TATA.

Hi greenhorn,

> Has the glue/Rubber gearbox really improved ?

Is your gearbox like that?

I would not call my gearbox that. It may not 'click' to the next gear, but it is not glue or molten rubber.

no, not a lot. but after driving a few other cars, I've felt there is a rubbery feel to it. , worst of the lot is reverse- It's a hit and miss affair. Usually 2~3 tries minimum until I hear the sound of the gear engaging.

if u are talking about the V2, i never had any trouble with the reverse gear in the 5 years i owned it. but i did hear about people having trouble with the reverse gear, so i guess it maybe a defect in an individual car.

Ditto. No problem with the gears (incl reverse), in two such cars from 2000 to 2008

Oh well, I can bear with it - the rest of the gears all engage fine

My Indica too had the same reverse gear problem. I started considering that as feature, difficult to slot in reverse means, no accidental change to reverse during forward drive gear changes

Actually I knew the trick of changing it also. Whenever it does not slot in correctly, I would quarter release the clutch and press again. In the process is an uneasy noise and feel. I also felt the same reverse gear behaviour in Spark as well.
