Juny, the pics are pretty nice and the car looks good in this color as well. But i must say the red color brings the best look on the Vista after seeing C-A-D's pics. These are nice pics as well so dont worry about the quality being bad! Hope you get to enjoy more of your car once you are back in Kerala.

Juny, what about the problem you had mentioned about regarding suspension. Please share the problem and hopefully it was small and fixed by now.

Yea bro the suspension niggles are completely solved by now after the first service. Last week my dad had given the vehicle for its first service and after that they have solved that problem.

I have told about the scratches on top right. Seeing the close up photos of the portion i cant identify any color difference or anything and the scratches have completely vanished. They did a pretty good job of repainting.

They also did a complete underbody coating for free. The irritating thing is that they have still not fitted the mud flaps, the floor mats and the steering grip. They say it has not yet arrived for the vista. As and when they arrive they promised to come to my house and fix them.

Now that it has covered more than 1000Kms will there be any problems if i rev it up a bit. I might be home next week and wana spend some good time with her.

Also about the Keyless entry. It seems they still do not have ones which will not make the warrantly void. So we are waiting for that as well.

That is a heap of pothin chanakam. Get the mud flaps, steering grips and keyless entry fitted from some accessory shop.

Can the Vista owners here let us know about the actual mileage they are getting?
Also are there any problem encountered due to reduced ground clearance with increased wheelbase?


Spotted very few vistas till date here in NCR, do any body has the idea why the deliveries are so slow?

Heh, NP. Due to past experiences we approach similar situations in different ways. If this was USA I wouldn't mind buying the latest car (even from GM, Chrysler or Tata), but in India I am a bit cautious.
Guys, Are we forgetting here that Indian car market is no longer a monopoly...Just like the US...maybe on a smaller scale but the Indian buyer is no less demanding and many a time much more informed.

I dont think GM Ford honda Toyota hyundai will appreciate that comment that the standard of their Indian cars is less than their world cars. Poor Hyundai and Maruti will need to deliberately maintain two standards in the same factory if they wanted to have "Indian" and "world" standards.

I would suggest taking a deep breath and re think Ravi Kant or any other tata executive is dumb enough not to test a vehicle properly before getting it to the market when such competition exists...

If you talk about justice if i am unhappy about something i paid 5 lakhs for i will shout long and hard until i prevented atleast 50 others from giving their 5 lakhs up.

An i am not unique and every businessman out there knows it. Legal system does not even come into the picture if Tata wants to make money they better make something good so that the initial buyers dont make their crores go down the drain.

And we have enough stories of how manufacturers have had to deal with Indian consumer courts when they tripped up. I think that system is quite strong.

Rest in peace the public here is not a guinea pig.
