Blackbeast buys a White beast
Congrats on your purchase, Safari clan seems to increase here day by day.
Dont worry about the initial niggles, There are few things we pay too much of attention during the initial ownership that we get paranoid.
Steering noise occours only during LH and RH lock positions, this is common.
Engine noise, during the first 1000 kms this happens, will subside soon
Engine fan = this happens during the initial run-in period
But anyways preferably have it checked during your first 1000 km service.
congrats once again and wish you a long term happy ownership.

I presume the Steering noise you mentioned is the hissing noise of a snake from LH and RH lock. No, i'm not referring to that though i learnt it is normal from dev during the PDI.
I hope the Engine gets quieter after 1000 kms.
Are you sure about the fan running even after bringing the vehicle to a stop and idling it for 30 min and then turn the engine off ?????
The steering wheel produces sound even with slight turns. I can sense it come from under steer wheel. I should get it resolved at 1st check up.
The sensor must be faulty. If so, will tata replace it by bringing in a new sensor or they tell me to go to red soul service guys if they exist.
the temp meter stays exactly at the middle. The fan sound is so huge that people actually think the engine is turned off. i thought the same when i observed it for the first time.
Two more problems noticed.
1) The window lock provided on the driver side doesn't lock any door's glass operation. I missed to check during delivery.
2)The black burnt residue is seen on the front rims on both sides. on a couple of occasions, i smelt the burning smell. This sure must be from the discs.This should not happen since i have not applied any harsh braking so far.
