What was the gear indicator showing during this incident? I've noticed that sometimes if the brake pedal is not depressed properly while changing from N to A, the shift doesn't happen.

The gear indicator showed 1 at all times. To make sure that car was properly slotted in first gear, I put it in manual and then again in 1st gear.

Re: Tata Nexon : Official Review

I am on the verge of booking an XZA+ P sometime this week. Talked to 2 dealers, Adishakthi (aka Aadya) near Nagawara and Prerana Rajajinagar, and both are quoting a final OTR of around Rs.11,20,000 after discounting insurance (Rs.33,000 discounted of a total of Rs.38,000) and smaller ones like accessories and corporate discount. This includes AMC and 2+2 year warranty.
I have started a mail thread with Tata customer care, CEO, dealer about waiving the infamous 'Logistic charges' but dealer has not budged as yet.
Has anyone got a better deal in other showrooms?

After that the wheels refused to rotate even after hard accelerator pedal input. I tried putting it in neutral and back in first gear but still nothing. The car just revved till 6K RPM but the gearbox didn't give any torque at all to the wheels.
Might be a scenario to avoid clutch burning, as the car detected wheel-spin.

Yes, this is what I was thinking. But still, had it been an uphill path, I would've been in much more pickle.
In future, how should I tackle such situations?
Any help is appreciated.

Demands by Dealers for Logistics Charges are unlawful

Please don't give in to the dealer's utterly unreasonable and unlawful demand of so called logistics charges. People have written to the Tata leadership and have had these charges dropped & so can you. Here's an earlier post on the subject.

Hope this helps.

Cheers !

Re: Tata Nexon : Official Review

We got a chance to visit Baba Budangiri hills of Chikmagalur, Karnataka 2 weeks ago with our Nexon. The road leading to the hill was very narrow and the weather was so wonderful and at the same time so foggy that in some stretches there was absolutely no visibility. With the easy drivability and hyper road grip, it was an absolute joy and the drive was the cakewalk with the Nexon.
Witness it yourself.. :-)

Amazing videography and editing. Weather and the drive way demands such a vehicle to enjoy the ride [both as driver and passenger].
I went to Chikmagalur, then to Mullayanagiri in my TATA Safari a couple of years ago. Wow! What a ride! Just amazing then.
Road to Mullayanagiri was just less than single drive way, that too in the rise and I was driving uphill before the sunrise. So, I just had my way lightened up using the headlight. While climbing down, I realised how dangerous the fall is! There is absolutely no protection on most of the roads. Its just a free fall!

Good job and thanks for sharing your experience through an excellent video compilation.

Prem.

Hi Prem,


Thanks for the positive and motivating feedback on the video. It's really great to hear the memorable experience you had during the Mullayyanagiri drive in the past with the Safari. True you really need some skills to tame the route to the hill. Especially the last 1 to 2 km stretch to reach parking. This time we avoided Mullayyanagiri keeping in mind that it was weekend and the mad rush of the crowd and mindless parking all along the way to the hill may spoil the joy.



On the other hand, anyone who is planning the trip to Chikmagalur, please postpone the plan for a month or so until the chaos caused by the rain gets stabilized there. Read the below post by the fellow BHPian dailydriver on the recent condition of the Chikmagalur for the better insight.

Many visitors might have completed a trip without as much as a hitch, but that doesn't mean the roads are safe. Each day is different and unpredictable. With eyes and ears glued to the happenings around me, specially on the touristy routes, I would entreat all travellers to postpone their visits until the rains recede.

50,000th Nexon rolls out of Tata's Ranjangaon plant

The Tata Motors plant in Ranjangaon celebrated a production milestone yesterday as the 50,000th Nexon rolled off the production line.

Tata Nexon : Official Review-image-1-3.jpg

On average, Tata Motors has been selling around 4,200 units of the Nexon per month. In July 2018, the carmaker sold 3,840 units compared to 4,717 units in April 2018.

The Tata Nexon was launched in September 2017. It was initially offered with a 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with 108 BHP and 170 Nm of torque and a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder diesel unit with 108 BHP and 260 Nm. Both engines came with a 6-speed manual transmission. In May 2018, Tata introduced a 6-speed AMT on both petrol and diesel variants of the Nexon.

I got the 'logistic charges' waived from Prerana motors Rajajinagar and paid the booking amount today. Final OTR is Rs.11.17 lakhs for the petrol XZA+ including 4 year warranty, the AMC and a few small accessories like a good floor mat etc. I have been told that there is no stock of XZAs in general and the delivery date will be known early next week. There is also the threat of a 2.2% increase in ex-showroom price from Tata (https://auto.ndtv.com/news/tata-moto...r-cent-1885548), which may or may not be applied when the invoice is done. I am trying to gather more information about that and anyone here knows more, please help me out .

I could not find bulb out error light in instrument cluster but we can always install error cancelers if it gives an error. My main concern is warranty and cutting of dust cap.
You can pick up dust covers on AliExpress, I have added them on my Nexon with the upgraded LED lights.
