On uneven roads/speed breakers, I have been facing a constant creaking/rattling sound. I had this issue before as well(6000 KMs back to be precise) and at that time the service center folks had greased a few parts from the underbelly that had solved the issue. Now that the issue is back again, what should I ask the service center to check? I am looking at a long term solution and do not want to visit the ASS every time this issue crops up!

Vehicle details -
Model - XTA 2017
KMs covered - 31K
I have visited twice and the second visit seems to have fixed it. Nevertheless there still is some sound that comes from the loose tools like spanners or screwdrivers that fail to sit snugly after a few uses.
In your case it could either be loose tail light housings or the boot door hinge. In case of the latter, just ask them to replace the hinges.

Re: Tata Hexa : Official Review

Latest update from the plant. Tata is indeed making BS4 Hexas this month. From February onwards till the launch of the BS6 version, they won't make any more Hexas. So if someone wants a fresh piece then they can surely get one. Don't believe the dealer guys.

Will update you with the variants that they plan to make this month.

I had the similar issue with old Verna Fluidic where creaking sound was coming from rear left wheel when driving on bad roads. After multiple visits to service center and FNGs, the problem was diagnosed with faulty rear brake caliper sleeve. The sleeve was machined on lathe machine to bring it in original shape and refitted. No noise since then on any surface. You can try this and check whether sleeve is culprit in your case also.

Re: Tata Hexa : Official Review

Got our Hexa XM+ delivered in mid week of November. Apologies to fellow Bhpians, was completely occupied last month due to personal commitments.

Reached Bafna Motors, Law College Road in Pune by around 4 pm. The SA and his team were ready with the car documentation. Completed the paper work and necessary signatures. Main Tax Invoice, Zero Dep Insurance, Extended warranty, etc. was properly filed and explained by the SA.

A day before the delivery, I had ordered a Photo cake with Hexa's imprint to make the moment more special. We carried it along with us to the showroom. Once the paper work was completed, the showroom guys made the cake cutting preparations. We were excited to see their whole team had gathered for the small celebration. Did the Cake cutting, clicked pictures and were greeted by congratulatory wishes by all..

Later, we proceeded for unveiling the car. Tata SA ensured the car was thoroughly washed and squeaky clean before delivery. I had requested to keep the car covered by a satin cloth to perform the unveil. Me and wifey did the unveiling procedure. Later performed a small pooja of the car's engine and clicked some more pictures. Bafna Motors, Sales Manager came at the delivery bay to congratulate us and assured prompt assistance in case of any issues come up within a week's time of purchase. We ensured a token of appreciation for the Service Advisor, Mr. Omkar Palav for his wonderful assistance all throughout the buying experience. Left the showroom by 7 pm by thanking everyone.

Many Thanks to Bafna Motors, they valued us by addressing every query, ensured most of our requests were fulfilled and offered maximum discounts to finalize the deal. Overall, I must say the Sales and delivery experience was smooth and very cooperative. Hoping to continue the same with the TASS in future. Sharing some clicks of the delivery day. Will share modifications done in few days time.

Re: Tata Hexa : Official Review



For those looking to upgrade the stock ICE to an Android Auto head unit, retaining all the stock functionalities like mood lighting and door lock/ unlock controls, this is a good option by Hypersonic.

Will it be an upgrade? Looks more of a downgrade to me. I mean who would replace Harman with a cheap brand like Hypersonic? And certainly, it would result in complications at a later date.

Re: Tata Hexa : Official Review

How is quality of floor matting sold as genuine accessory by dealer? I am getting front sensors as free but are not readily available during delivery of my Hexa. If matting quality is good then I can ask for it instead of sensors.

Hey Paddu! I can recommend Mr. Sanjeevan from Sagar Motors in Noida Sec- 5. You can give him a call at 9811247916. He has helped me out quite a few times.

Zero dep was touching almost 60K hence I backed out from Zero Dep.

When I checked on Policy Bazaar I got similar quotes.
I am surprised that you got it in 55K for top model. Is it Zero dep ? Who is the insurer, if you don't mind sharing.

Hexa website shows ex-showroom price as 15,89,338 in Pune for XM+ while dealer pricelist puts it at 15,90,328.

And not just this variant, there is a difference of exactly 990 Rs. in ESP of all variants. Though it's not a big amount in bigger scheme of things, still I pointed it out and couldn't get a satisfactory response from them. They simply said this is what their system has even though the factory unit price + 48% (CGST 14, SGST 14, cess 20) tax (from Invoice) exactly puts the ESP of XM+ at 15,89,338.

What am I missing here ?

That's impossible. Sit in the showroom or at your home with your laptop. Log on to New India Assurance, have them on call with them logged in to Tata insurance and check what quote you get. If they are getting you insurance via Tata insurance brokers, no chance of their quote being more than the one you get via the website by around 2000 INR, which is the digital discount given by NIA on their website. And it's very risky to skimp on zero dep insurance.

Our dealer tried to pull a fast one on us by giving insurance from Magma HDI/Chola. We said ICICI or NIA, or we get it ourselves. My current policy shows 57891 INR with GST including NCB, for zero dep, owner driver cover and unnamed 6 pax cover, and towing. This would have been in 54k to 55k range had we taken insurance ourselves, but we didn't want to delay the registration process. So no way your NIA premium for XM+ can be over 57-60k with zero dep, even if you don't have NCB.

Well, I tried out the same before confirming with them. Somehow, I still can't get the premium from NIA website any lower than 50K for XM+, even for comprehensive.

Anyway, I guess this may not be the right forum to discuss it further. Will post it in detail on appropriate thread.
