Have seen this ad in a leading Malayalam Daily today. Tata is trying to promote the Diesel version, which is good. But what went bad is the way they projected the power, instead of the measuring unit to be called out as kWH, they represented it as PS. It is mentioned as 66 PS, which is almost equal to their own 1.2 diesel engine . As an enthusiast, should I cry or laugh

I think you mean kW, not kWH. Latter is for electric vehicles.

2. https://https://thenextweb.com/news/ev-battery-basics-kw-kwh-electric-vehicle-charging-lingo/amp

Agree that the figure quoted is wrong though

Had an unfortunate minor accident, got the bumper repaired at JC road, Bangalore. It wasn't a pleasant experience seeing the car ripped open but will do for the time being. Chose to get it wrapped than repainted.
Also got the roof wrapped in gloss black.

Car finished 11k km last week so got the wheel alignment and balancing done at Tyre Professionals Basvangudi, very pleasant experience. ��

Noticed on Tata's website today, the Altroz Diesel FE is now rated at 23.03 kmpl. If I remember correctly, the ARAI rating used to be 25.11 kmpl. What has changed?

See the above quote from me. In the news paper advertisement also, they have mentioned it as 25.11 only. Not sure which one to believe.

Im facing a minor issue. While accelerating, the car sometimes jerks and loose power for a fraction of a second. Went to TASS but couldn't replicate it, came back disappointed.

Any pointers?

Pretty common for the revetron engine especially in the first ten minutes when the engine is up from cold.

Usually happens when accelerating from first or second gear. The engine stutter,feels like it is about to stall and sometimes there is a blowback sound also. Only option is to downshift to first or drop the clutch and rev the engine and then shift to first ( like clearing a stuck throat). Problem disappears when engine is warm enough.

But still a very jerky engine and the main reason I sold off my Tigor.

It's already explained in our official review by GTO. It's a fueling issue and only fix as of now is to not stay in that Rev band.

I own a diesel too but haven't experienced it, yet.

I did read it, the issue was not present earlier and is more prominent now at 12k.

OT did you get any ECU update?

Please get the air filter cleaned or changed. This is the main issue i suppose.

Gosh, owning a bs6 diesel seems to be a gamble
