    Hello friends,

    I booked my Linea MJD Emotion BNW on Friday 20-07-2012, the dealer today has confirmed my Chassis number which he says recieved from TATA to be ending "DLZ" which I presume is April 2012 make, 3 months after its manufactured..So I was wondering whether its fine to accept it?

    Kindly suggest?

    Thanks
  2. I don't think there's anything wrong with a 3month old car, except that what u get is, of course, a 3 month old, new car. maybe a marginal loss in the case of resale value. you could try to get some extra discounts.

    3 months shouldnot be a problem at all. The vehicles dispatched from the factory would be more like the first manufactured cars (depending on the variant and colour) first. One of my friend is taking the delivery of a Jan 2102 manufactured car tomorrow. He got an offer of Free insurance+RSA+Reverse parking sensors after negotiation.

    That should be absolutely fine as long as you do a thorough PDI.

    I don't think it should be a problem anyways! 3 months new is not at all a problem.
    Just carry out a thorough PDI, satisfy yourself & you are ready to roll.
    All the best with your new possession & do post pics after delivery!
    Happy motoring!

    3 months is fine. 3 months old or 3 days old, make sure you check the car properly to your satisfaction. :)

    Do a PDI and if everything is fine go for it
  9. IMO, a 3 month old vehicle won't be a test drive vehicle. they'll keep it for more than a year at least.

    I have got a DLZ car which arrived at the dealer on 24/07/2012.
    The cars are despatched from the yard on FIFO basis.
    If you have booked Sun Beam Beize then you might have got June 2012 manufactured car.
