Congratulations and a nice review.

It's good to know that TATA's have improved upon the gearshift, which was major drawback in TATA cars.

Congrats! I guess this is the first Vista delivery on the forum? Here's wishing you many miles of smiles.

Why? I suspect they've been using it for TDs. I doubt if a manufacturer will ask its dealers to test the car for 350 ks. Something is fishy.

I'll bet they came with those damned Syndicate wiper blades. Get Bosch fast - you're in Kerala.

Do you think Tata Motors would bring a sedan version of Vista ?

sometimes companies test the first lot extensively. if at all it was a test car then they would have disconnected the odo and driven it, and you wouldnt have known it.

tatamotors used to test the first lot of sumo grande for 100 kms inside the plant and then dispatch. i think vistas are also test driven.

do one thing. get the thing written on a paper from the dealer that the 350 kms is due to testing and then mail it to tatamotors sales person. see what they have to say. then you can fight.

mainly did u see other vista's odo. please go to the showroom and see once. if all vistas are done with 100 plus kms then its ok. if not then smash the dealer

Wow! Congrats on your Vista. Your going to feel quite awkward looking at nothing beyond the steering wheel. I think you should get a big RPM Autoguage meter put there.
