Re: Tata Tigor : Official Review

Update post 10k ODO and a paid service
(TIGOR XZA+ Mar 2020)
  1. Asked the service advisor to cover only general maintenance in the service sans the engine oil change and WA since I had recently got it done outside.
  2. The SA suggested on replacing the spark plugs (3 no. total cost around 750) since the original ones seemed worn out.
  3. I see an overall increase of 3+ kmpl in fuel economy on the same routes post this. Also, the engine feels much smoother and the power output seems enhanced.
  4. The total cost of service was nominal 2k. ASC - TATA Kropex motors, Bengaluru

Re: Tata Tigor : Official Review

What's brewing with the Tigor? Fuel-flex engines or something else?

Caught on camera on the streets of Pune by AutoSpy recently.

While I appreciate the early efforts on the flex fuel engines, I wish they bring the turbo petrol, at least the altroz spec. Tigor is a safe and great VFM car. This car deserves better treatment, which will definitely result in better sales. Even the EV has low power motors.

My brother was initially interested in the Tigor. But the 1.2L wasn't enthusiastic to drive. So he went on to buy the Vitara Brezza at the start of this year. He would've bought it, if the turbo engines were present.

All the niggles with a pre-owned Tata tigor

I purchased a 2019 model tigor xza that has ran about 30044km. It was a lady owned car it's whole 3 years and the exterior surely needs some work. I purchased it for 4.9 lakh.
All was going good when suddenly a weird knock has been coming from the right side and the steering makes a thud noise if moved slowly. The AMT system has also been malfunctioning. The car wobbles with the clutch slipping whenever I let go off the throttle or when accelerating on hills. The most frustrating of them all is the key fob. The lock and unlock button won't work in the first go. If the follow me lamp button is pressed, all the buttons work perfectly. I have diagnosed the knocking noise to a blown tie rod but the rest of the issues. The amazing people at my nearest TASS is saying it's all common in the tiago and tigor and I should live with it. Someone who does know anything about it. Please shed some light.

Do the gears slot in properly and without an usually pronounced jerk when done manually?

Is the engine holding gears for more than expected time when accelerating smoothly?

Are the symptoms present only in hills or also in slow moving traffic?

This might be the onset of a busted clutch assembly and may also lead to the infamous mechatronics failure.
Kindly get the clutch assembly and the oil checked on priority.

It was round about the same amount running (27k km) of my Nano XTA before the AMT gave away.
In my case, the gear would get stuck in 4th. Had to switch off of the car and switch it on again in ignition mode before I could get back to neutral.
The downshift used to feel like the gear box has dropped on road while trying to shift to higher or lower gears.

Re: Tata Tigor : Official Review

No the system is not jerking while shifting but, while climbing over a steep bump from stand still the revs climb up to 2000 rpm and holds there, it's like you are applying half clutch.

Can you check if you are facing the same issue pointed out in the below video? I remember reading about this issue on few Tiago/Tigor pre-BS6 AMT models and remembered this video which I have seen long back. I think the uploader has uploaded another video after finding a solution, so you can check to see if that helps.

Re: Tata Tigor : Official Review

A close friend is also facing similar issues as shown in the video by skarthicsr. The throttle response is very erratic. The car is driven by his wife most of the time. He is contemplating ECU remap to improve the overall response. Will a remap solve the problem? He has spoken to someone in Bangalore who has quoted 26 K for the job. Any pointers who will be right person for the job who would do it at reasonable price . He is looking for someone in Bangalore.
