so continuing my earlier post...the test drive went well and when i drive with absolutely no traffic on road or even short stretches of empty road, the vehicle started veering to the left, but I wasn't too sure if it was the roads or its just me. So I made quite a few my friends test this and all that I could was mixed feedback and they weren't too sure either. One early morning (i'd lost my sleep, so got up early), decided to take her to the beach road in chennai and test it down. Everytime you take the hands off the steering, she would want to pull to the left. Wait for the clock to strike 10 and I call Mr. Vickram, and just blasted out at him about the pathetic experience with my dealer. He immediately apologized, sent someone home to pick the car up and offered timely feedback on the status of the car. Finally this was the only consolation that TATA could offer. The car spent some 2 days at the service station and then i get back. I test the vehicle dragging to the left was gone. The much bigger mistake from my end was to take delivery from the TASS on a sunday evening. The vehicle dragging to the left had stopped. But there was some rattling noise from the car. Wait for sunrise this time and send an email to Mr.Vickram. He again calls back and wanted the vehicle to be brought to the TASS. Wait for the clock to strike 8 AM again and reach there by 8:15, Mr. Vickram calls up and says the if the problem takes anything more than an hour to fix, I'd be given a replacement car (A Linea MJD with a tankful of diesel).. Any ways Mr.Tenzing checks the car out and confirms that the problem has been fixed and I test it too, it had gone. The car was perfectly fine then when we tested. Even took a friend along to check if everything was fine. By this time i'd completed around 5000Km and it was time for 1st free service. Go give the car in the evening. Get the monsoon under chassis coat done for about 3.5k and they return the car by evening. ---------- Post added at 11:15 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:09 PM ---------- Then after there were frequent long round-trips, 1 to Pondicherry, 1 to chidambaram, 1 to trichy, 1 to Kodai and 1 to madurai. All from chennai. The car handles like a beauty after all the mental torture I went through. Now she's a tamed beast and she just responds the right way and returns a minimum of 22kpl on the highway with an avg speed of 96KPH. ---------- Post added at 11:17 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:15 PM ---------- More updates to follow with the issues identified with the wheel alignment and balancing and how it damaged my tyres and finally how i found a fix!!!!!
