Generally not all of them will actually just shut shop. Many will get just taken over by other owners including the staff. That's what is being done in Pune. Earlier also when Pandit Auto shut shop in Pune, it was taken over by a new vendor (Bafna) along with all the existing staff. So for me, actually nothing changed other than the board on the workshop!

Since TML already has quite less dealerships/workshops in each city - it would be a surprise if the Concorde showrooms/workshops are not all kept active with new management/ownership. Maybe a few will drop as part of consolidation, but not many. You can informally check with your trusted service adviser. They generally know.

I have been hearing positive response on the newly opened TASS in Yelachenahalli, next to Metro cash and carry. I had visited there once for spares, the work shop looks modern not like what we have seen in our old TASS. You can try this..

Note : They don't sell parts over the counter.

Is the Zest still under production? Can I buy the 90PS Diesel version now?

Yes absolutely. Attached is a price list (for Pune) that I had procured for a friend back in September for reference.

As I had posted earlier, Zest XTA is available with flat 2 lakh discount!

ZTA Diesel touches 11 lac rs on road. Won't a Baleno/Jazz automatic make way more sense to buy than this? or is the 2 lac discount on the price list that makes it around 9 lac rs on road for XTA?

But are they available as diesel automatics? I think that is the primary requirement. Also - Baleno's build compared to a 4 star rated Zest also comes into picture. I'd happily pay 1 lakh simply for the safety on offer.

Default Re: Tata Zest : Official Review

Today when I started my car (after almost 2 weeks), noticed MIL light was continuously lit. At that time, I wasn't sure what it was and because I was on road, parked the car on the side, switched off ignition and back on and the light was no more lit. Not sure what that meant. Any ideas what it could be as I drove for about 8kms after that and switched off/on ignition multiple times and the light did not lit again!?

Just for a reference, this is the description in the service manual.

Zest gets the same Multijet 1.3L diesel but with a VGT (Ciaz, Ertiga and Brezza came with this engine - read higher segment), so power output is much linear, making it more suitable for an automatic. My father drives an XMA since 2014. It is undoubtedly better than those two. But if I needed a diesel automatic from that budget segment, I would go for the Amaze. Simply because the Zest gets an AMT and the Amaze has got excellent reviews for that diesel + CVT combo.

Yes, the Zest gives you that feeling of being in a solidly built car. It provides the best ride quality in the class, being a Tata, and at highway speeds, it masks speeds in a way that it feels like a car from another segment.

That actually is a very thought provoking point! The Amaze CVT diesel I think undercuts the Zest XTA on paper in S, V trims & VX is only marginally higher. The Zest of course is running unbelievable discounts right now making the real price far lower than the on paper one.

Still - a diesel CVT Amaze with much newer feel makes quite a solid case in comparison. Safety aspects unknown on the Amaze though.

I would love to trade in my diesel Zest XM 90 for another one, now an XT D ( for the 90 HP engine), provided I get fabulous discount. Not that I really need to change cars now but I may consider buying another one.

My current car is almost 1,05,000 km now. It still is very good. A new one is even better, if discounts are great.

If you really like the Zest so much, I would say - just go for it. If they continue the Zest post April'20, then fine. Else considering how much your Zest has covered, and possible changes in their line-up, now would be a good time to get the one you like.

Btw, the Zest is on my list of possible (compact) sedans, down the line.

My 2 paisa:

As an ex-Zest owner, i can relate to your feelings. Since you are interested in the diesel variant, do remember that the Fiat engine will die post BS-VI. Also, since you have already owned one for a fairly long period, it makes sense to try other products. Last year i traded in my 100,000 kms XMA for a new Nexon and i don't regret my decision.

If you are hard pressed on getting another Zest, do bargain hard. Try and see if dealers in your area are sitting on high inventory. In such a case, you will get an even sweeter deal in the next 1-1.5 month. In case the channel inventory is dried up, just strike a deal now.

Sorry to play the devil's advocate, unless you have a ready buyer, the resale value will ensure that the decision tips in favour of sticking to your current car. Nexon though, definitely is a great upgrade from the Zest.

OT: I would like to drive your car once to get a feel of how different it feels from mine.

Great point that i missed to touch open. I sold my Zest XMA which was 3 years and 100,000 kms old for just 2.8 lacs. When new, it costed me ~8.2 lacs. This was when i exchanged it for Nexon XZ+. A direct personal buyer would have offered 30-40k more, is what i feel.
