Man that was one hell of a trip.This may be last time you will be having a terrible adventure.From next long trip onwards you may be having all the enjoyments and peace that you missed out on this tour.

So you beast was tored to its last strip..great,now he will be as tamed as dog.hehe

Dont give up on the beast yet man.THere is still many good things to come.

It was a BAS not a bus, lol.

A fantastic thread and an adventure full of twists and turns.

I had refrained myself till now from commenting on the travails of Tanveer. He shall recall that when he brought this pearl white Safari 4x4 from Ludhiana, I had said that let this Brahmin drive from Ludhiana till Noida. He refused.

Then when he got this truck to his home I again told him to give a treat to this Brahmin. He wouldn't listen...

Look what he got into.. You have to appease the Gods - directly or indirectly...

And no, all please don't think otherwise, I didn't wish bad experience for him...LOL

An entire bus of brahmins could not move even one nut, I doubt one brahmin from Gurgaon will be able to do anything

The title is really apt. Nightmares almost stole the attention from the dreamscapes.

In my safari (3.0), I had some niggles but thankfully it didn't behave badly during trips. Keeping my fingers crossed as I venture out for my next drive in three days.

You went on a safari
On your 4x4 Tata Safari
Then how much did suffer ye?

And rid your car of the gremlins for e'er.
This is all T-BHP members' prayer.

So I was right - you DID lose a tyre too.

Actually, what exactly is the status of that tyre?
Any possibility it would qualify for manufacturing defect?

Sidewalls split open. No way to prove manufacturing defect, because same thing can happen due to hitting sharp object too

Already shown to Bridgestone? Refused replacement?

Oh no Tanveer you got it all wrong. These rituals are done at the very begining. Once the ordeal starts then not even a townfull of Brahmins could ward that off..

Hey Tanveer, that was a nice thread, and good that you kept your cool and patiently sorted out the problems. I could get to learn a bit more about the beast, or rather the problems in the beast and TASS, thanks to this thread.

Before you try any kind of mumbo-juimbo on that hophankey (HOrse-elepHANt-donKEY), you should consider enlisting services of that famous guy from Kerala who cured Steer's steed of its illness. ;-)

Seriously, at least, another service-dealership.
