Make: Tata
Model: Safari
Variant: VX 4x4
Fuel: Diesel
Booking Date: 24-Dec-2010
Booking Amount: 1L
Total amount: 13,60,610
Color: Pearl White
Expected Delivery Date: 1 week. See below
Dealer & City: Pandit Auto, Pune
Freebies: 12k Off

After reading lots of posts regarding Safari and non-availability of Toyota Fortuner,
I was thinking about booking Safari when I saw the ad of 12k off at Pandit Auto, Pune. Took that as a sign from heavens to book *now*, I rushed to the only TATA dealership in Pune. But, they told me that 12k off is only on the vehicles which can arrive in their lot by 27th Dec. And since 4x4 in made to order, there wasn't any chance.

I was furious and just walked into the sales manager office and made my feelings clear to him. He heard me patiently and made some phone calls and told me that there is a slight chance that he can get it by 27th! So went ahead with the booking with the condition that I will get a full refund if they do not get the car in time.

Looking back actually it was not potential loss of 12k that made me furious, but, they way I felt cheated about it.

Got a call on 26th that my Safari has arrived and I should bill it to take advantage of 12k offer. Did that. Now trying to decide to do registration/delivery now or in new year. Dealership is suggesting in new year as that will add to resale value. I posted a separate thread for the same. Please help me decide.

Booked a Red Chevrolet Spark LS For my wife. The cars in consideration were I10, Santro and Spark. This car will be driven in city 99% and would have a running of around 800kms per month.

This will be a second Chevrolet in our house. I drive an Aveo and am extremely happy with the *** hence this decision.

The Car is costing 3,41,900/- OTR after a discount of 54K and some freebies thrown in

Following is the break up

Ex Showroom= 3,04,634
Insurance = 7667/-
Regestration = 16,050/-
Central Locking = 3200/-
Logistics = NIL
Music System = 6000/-
Standard accessories = 2350/-
fabric seat covers = 2000/-

Congrats Samurai and scuderiaferrari!

The whole thread looks more like a log now.. not much of excitement here huh! Well here are the details of the car I booked

Make : Fiat
Model : Punto
Variant : Emotion
Fuel : Diesel
Color : Tuscan Wine
Booking Date : 26/12/2010
Expected Delivery Date : 5-10 (more) days
Dealer & City : Prerana Motors, Sarjapur Road, Bangalore
Freebies : The usual mats, mud flap and 3M tints. RSA and Extended Warranty
Others : Ordered door sill plates, I hope get the speakers changed for now as they sound really bad, seat covers, horn and headlamp bulbs are also on the list

The wait though not the longest seen here is getting kinda long due to the loan being processed by Govt. undertaking bank (even though my father is an ex-employee and I have a good account with them). I hope to get the documentation done and pick up the car soon

Make: Tata
Model: Safari
Variant: LX 4x2
Fuel: Diesel
Booking Date: 11-Jan-2011
Booking Amount: 7,92,601
Total amount: 7,92,601
Insurance(Self Purchased) Amount : 20885
Color: Cycus Grey
Expected Delivery Date: 2 weeks.
Dealer & City: Pandit Auto, Pune
Freebies: 13k Off(7 K extended warranty + 6 K corporate discount)

The heart always used to beat for the BEAST .I had been thinking about booking Safari with the launch of the DICOR engine long back , but budget / time constraints always kept away the BEAST from me . December'10 all of a sudden the heart took a plunge to go ahead and DO IT I rushed to the only TATA dealership in Pune. Finally booked the BEAST on JAN '11 .

A few personal calls were made to the TELCO team to arrange for the quick delivery of the vehicle as the Cycus grey is a less selling color(to be read as presumed ), hence not ready stocked .

Jan '14 got a call from the TELCO sources , vehicle has been dispatched . Reconfirmed the status from the SA , whoa !! he was unaware . Few hours and it was confirmed that it has been out of the production line ready to be moved to the dealer stockyard .

Pestered the SA for a (pre form 20 signing ) PDI as a humble BHP-ian . He was like "sir kya dekhogey , bahut gandi hoti hai , you won't be able to see anything .Already hamari team ne PDI kia hai . Moreover the stockyard is way outside the city limits , forget it " My blunt reply was " aap ki team ne (Tata Motors ) ki team ne PDI kia hai that's the reason I need to take the extra effort ." Zapped he surrendered instantly and arranged for the PDI . Went off a heck of 24 odd kms (read as all worth) just to see my Long Lovable BEAST , standing and grinning in the sunlight .

First roll of eyes went on the tyres and the mood went off , my goodness SAFARI with Apollo's :( dejected , inspected the vehicle further till the odometer reading . All looked OK . The stockyard manager was almost shocked with the points of the checklist for the PDI (Team BHP ) , lets put it correctly HE just got zapped and impressed .

Told him and the SA that need no other than Bridgestone Deullar HT on the vehicle . Agreed to it , have sent the vehicle for passing today .

Eagerly awaiting get my hands on MY BEAST (probably 2 days from now, Friday )

Mods please pardon my ignorrance and move the thread to appropriate place , if not .

Regards,
Pankaj
