Wow Man, what a writeup! Congratulations!! Your White Baby / Monster / Car / MUV whatever it is looks fabulous !!!
Enjoyed those pics a lot and I must say your report was full of emotion, drama, twist & action; a complete Hit package for Hindi Film

It took me 30 "MINUT" to read the whole thread in details and I now feel shameful to reply you in 4-5 lines

Wish you the Very Best crunching those Happy miles in this fabulous looking car.

It seems you are the first one to read it completely. 30 "MINUT" says it all.

I did not expect you to like it so much (Auto-Mag). But for once I'd stick to Team-BHP, Thanks and regards.

WOW, you actually wrote this?. How much time it took you to compile this review?. while waiting for client, my computer read all of it for me, I must say great review and shame on wasan motors for giving you run around for 20L car.

What happen to your car insurance money for your stolen car. I must say, the way you wrote it, it was really touching. Your dad seems very kind person. Do keep us updated on insurance progress.

OMG. What a write-up! Superb going Zappex. Reading your review of the Tata Aria has completely transformed my opinion regarding the vehicle. I feel Tata Motors would do well to keep your review for reference as far as a customer feedback is concerned.
I absolutely loved your review. Way to go.

Absolutely mind-blowing review! Rating this thread 5 stars. Zappex, thanks for sharing & for using our Assembly Line forum section. Somehow, each and every Aria review on this forum (starting with ACMs) has had splendid attention to detail. Does that say something about Aria owners?

I'm glad you found my Aria review helpful, Zappex. I love most things about the Aria, except its price tag. But well, sometimes you have to look beyond the money. Drive safe and do keep updating this thread with service & maintenance experiences.

Hi Zappex,
Excellent review. A delightful read and great snaps leave nothing to the reader's imagination. Must complement you for the real hard work that went behind it.
Thanks for sharing your experiences.

Truly feel sorry for you on the loss of the Scorpio. Some feelings will never get soothed even by efflux of time, but I am sure the T-Aria will make an effort to help you get over the terrible experience.

Bravo Zulu !

I cannot comment about the issue you are facing in the safari, I Believe that with the Aria Tata's have provided new systems.
Okay, so they must have adjusted the flap in first service.
Keep a look out for this problem. you may face this again when driving on dirt tracks where lot of dust gets kicked up by the wheels.
The reason i asked you this question is this picture

the console does seem to have a lot of dust. Or maybe it was cleaned with a dirty cloth.
Many safaris I have seen have this same kind of dust around instrument cluster, even though the users drive with windows closed.
Check around your AC vents after a dusty road drive and you will easily get to know whether you get dust or not inside the vehicle.

Yes I wrote this . Well time it took to pen this down was not that much, but the events mentioned here are of the last 9 months. Wasan seriosly needs to improve itself. Hope Tata is listening.

The claim eventually got settled. Glad you liked the write-up. Dad is a really kind person, I am surprised on how you picked that up.

Thanks for the wishes mate. It feels good to see that your perception has changed. I really hope Tata improves further.

Thanks GTO for the support, wishes & rating, I really appreciate it. I guess on Team-BHP Aria owners know what they are purchasing.

Your review was great. We do; sometimes have to look beyond the price. Absolutely, I will update this thread as and when possible. My first service experience has not been a satisfying one.

Trust me, before the Aria had come the theft of the Scorpio was a pain in my heart. Now the Aria seems to be killing the pain!

I guess they must have made some adjustment. Will keep that in mind and re-check.

Blame that on me, not the Aria. I parked the car in a dusty environment while taking pics. Regarding the screen it was to be cleaned, I just couldn't do it on time.

I have driven down dusty roads, The AC seems to be fine. Really appreciate your concern Tanveer. But I think the issue has been sorted out. Still, I will keep an eye on the vents, just to be 100% sure.

Has to be one of the most detailed reviews I have seen from Team BHP users, sans the official reviews! What attention to detail! I enjoyed every single bit of your writing.

Congrats on your new ride and I wish she serves you faithfully and trouble free for years to come! Though it depends on buyer's specific needs and requirements, I personally find Aria a much better VFM vehicle than a Ford Endeavour or Toyota Fortuner for that matter. Looking forward to see regular updates on this thread. Rated the thread a well deserved 5 stars.
