You sure that Revotron in Zest is not a completely new engine because at the time of launch of Zest, it was being marketed as a brand new Petrol engine developed by Tata.

It is a new but a reworked one from the Xeta engine, and not a completely ground up developed one.

A sad ending with our Zest - a perfect family car.
The car got completely submerged in water when our basement parking was flooded by the Amphan super-cyclone. It took two days to drain the water out of the basement.
Post a detailed inspection by the Tata service executives and the Insurance Agency, the car was declared as a total loss! A great vehicle gone in just 4 years.
A parting shot.

That's really sad. Hope you had "return to invoice" add on in your car insurance, otherwise it'll be big financial loss as well. Or natural disasters are not covered!?

I think the return to invoice option can be availed only for the first 3 years for a new car, in which case it would not be applicable here.

Sorry for your loss brother. It would be a painful sight. I hope you'll do some permanent fixes to see if such flooding can be avoided in future and I hope your parking spot sees something wonderful very soon.

I got return to invoice for my 2014 Zest so it can be availed, you just have to find an insurer who is offering it.

Finally, my Zest gave an issue. Rear left power window got stuck halfway. I went to a garage to fix the issue. They said the power window motor was gone. I got the glass to be raised for a temporary fix.

While at it, I asked them to check brake pads as I noticed a slight sound when the wheel is turned left. On inspection, it was noticed that the brake pads were almost worn out. Even as I was confident they would last the 500 km return journey to home, I didn't take chance and had them changed. The mechanic was flabbergasted when I said these were OEM fitment and this was the first time they were being changed. Till then my car did 1,12,000 km in 5 years and 9 months.
