Please please go for it if you had dreams of owning Safari.

Which state registered is the car? If not you, let me know

Haha! It's a KL registered one. I think Thar with its non existing boot space and bumpy ride characteristics is overpriced at 1.6mill. Let me see if I can further squeeze him and get it closer to 8.

Default Re: Buying a Used Tata Safari?

Went through the first breakdown of the Safari.

I was going to a friend's place via NICE Ring Road on Sunday when I first noticed Battery warning light popping up. A while later the AC stopped working. By now the Engine warning lights had also come up. A short while after exiting the NICE the handbreak indicator also came up. In the last few kilometers before I reached my friend's place, the horn, indicators and the power window all stopped working.

Got a battery mechanic who checked with Multimeter and battery had a voltage of only 7V. Since the equivalent size Amaron battery was not available he gave me a a smaller Exide battery and it was a nerve racking drive back home.

As per the battery guy it is an issue with the dynamo.

Since this would be my first interaction with Tata Authorized service center I am a bit apprehensive. The nearest TASS is Prerana Motors ( Kudu Gate) and I am planning to give the vehicle for Service on Monday ( I am going on another trip on weekend, different vehicle).

How good is Prerana motors? What kind of cost can I expect for a thorough overhauling of the vehicle?

Please advise.

Get the alternator looked into as well.

I was in a Safari 2.2 VTT in 2007 when something as similar to this had happened. And alternator was found to be faulty.
