Iím surprised no one has pointed this out. Even the way the video pans in and out is suspicious. It doesnít allow the viewer to focus on the yard. There is no sign of flooding just outside the wall . Looks like an attempt to damage TATA or the dealer there

People buying cars(new and preowned) for the next 6 months should be extra cautious because there might be many such cases that haven't come out yet. Many Dealership stockyards and showrooms are flooded. Coming to these specific photos all stockyards will not have insurance so there's a 90% chance these cars will be "repaired" and given to customers. I advise people buying new cars to get an extended warranty for peace of mind ownership. Also, preowned cars will be very different to identify for flood damage one must check the complete service track from the showroom and check the car thoroughly.

In 2019, I had received a list of Mahindra Cars for sale which were submerged. The dealership was selling them as refurbished and had good discount. Indeed dealerships sell these cars after servicing.

But the problem is doing this will cost more than making a brand new car.
This unfortunate incident means that the cars will be have to discarded

Look for manufacturing date on cars while purchasing. Choose cars manufactured after Aug 21.

Moreover, these cars will be auctioned by insurance companies.

Despite the authenticity of the picture, the level of water as in the photo is not very alarming unless the cars were left with water for many days. Moreover rain water wont be much corrosive. Hope Dealer/TML will take quick action to drain the water out. Now Mumbai is facing heavy rain and water clogging.

Very sad picture to see, all these new cars suffering like this. People buying white Tata cars should be extra cautious as most of them are white colour. I wish the dealer could have done something beforehand and saved the cars from this misery.

Do these make a good deal for a rental car fleet. Either dealers or insurance can sell them at a discounted prices/extended warranties on a transparent deal.
Or they can go as demo vehicles to various dealerships after refurbishing and restring to stock condition.

The water level inside the yard and outside appears to be different, higher inside.
If that is true, the construction of the wall is not consistent with the way they are hold water inside. There is no weep or leakge from the precast slabs.
To hold water like a tank the walls shall be "retaining walls" even they have weep holes.
Practically speaking no one with a sane mind would construct retaining walls for a dealer yard.

Much is being said about how these cars could have been damaged. But all we have is a single video showing the water inside the yard.

In all likelihood, the dealer would have taken immediate steps to get the water drained out by hiring pumps as quickly as possible. Water ingress is very unlikely at this particular level if it has been only for a short duration.

The Safari has barely water at its wheel wells. So, expect zero damage there.
