Thank you.
Hi, apologies for the delayed reply.

1- The car had run 52k kms, single driver driven. In fact, even the plastic covr of the rear seats were not removed!
2- The asking price was 13 lakhs, I started from 10.5 and finally settled for 11.5 lakhs (XTA).
3- None. I even took the car to Tata ASS who advised no repairs were needed, since the car was recently serviced by the previous owner.
4- Had found it on olx.

The waiting period is 3 months (as per SA) , so I will still continue to look for a used Hexa.

I had almost finalised a Hea XM manual for around 8.5L when a friend suggested steering clear of manual.
Sometimes I doubt if asking too many people is a good thing.

XTA in Pune were all with dealers, all if them shady ones. Inspection revealed panels repainted when they claimed otherwise.

There is one with reputed dealer, but that is PB registered, which he claim can get converted to MH12, but a simple soul like me don't feel comfortable doing that.

Btw all the XTA were quoted nothing less than 12-14L, in my opinion anything above 10-11L for this car and stable would not be justifiable.

My XTA went in for its 60k service and I got a call from a potential buyer for 14 lakhs. I politely declined saying i can't find any car to upgrade to. He says he will pick it up in 5 mins if i was ever interested to sell. So, hold on to your Hexas!

Thereís one in our classifieds, one in a dealer in Mumbai and one I found on OLX in Pune. All single owner, XTAs that are around the 30k mark if I remember correct. PM me if youíre interested and Iíll share the link.

I own a MT Hexa and I consciously bought a MT over AT. Clutch is light, so city drive is not an issue. In highway anyway usage of clutch & gear is less. If possible , you take a test ride and then decide. Rent a Hexa from zoomcar for a day and try out. As your requirement is a six/seven seater give Hexa a try. Drive and seating comfort is at different level.

.. so my lusting over Hexa isn't over yet. And undefined waiting for Ertiga is just adding fuel to it. Yet to come across a new individual listing so not much I can do other then wait.

And while I do that, can nay of the owners confirm if the Hexa has flat folding rear seats (2nd and 3rd row)? Captain seats will not serve my purpose so I'm restricting my search to 2nd row bench version.

As suggested, I plan to hire a Hexa by zoom/revv sometime soon and do a longish test drive so clear any doubts. After all just reading about and watching photos of the things you love can only take you that far.

Hexa 3rd row does not fold completely flat. This causes a slight difficulty when placing heavy airport luggage like a big suitcase. Pushing it and placing over the seat takes some effort. But it is not a deterrent in comparison to other benefits one gets from Hexa like the ride quality, space, comfort and amazing sound quality. Do try the Hexa by renting from zoom/rev. You will get blown by the ease of driving such a huge car.
