vishwanath sriram's review on Tata Indigo eCS LX CR4
Year of Manufacture : 2011 | Driven no. of Kms. : 37579
- Pros: My 4th yr experience with eCS is its impressive pickup and torque in city and Hway.Smooth ride beyond 60kms speed.Ideal bet. 70to80 on highway.Good banking on turns no wobbles if wheels alighned periodically.Cabin noise is tolerable considering a diesel motor churning the power at speeds.Good acceleration and pickup if you practice the rpm and the turbo opening levels.Can't say much of turbo lag. Good braking systems and needs no attention panic.Hi! The car is ready to grow old with you decently. Amazing fuel economy.Tata's claim is true.(Ive checked) Top end model with all fully loaded and laden is NO regrets on off or on road cruisings. Minimal maintainance cost very affordable without pinching the wallet. After sales service & repairs are affordable. My personal experience on this sedan which is my self driven for weekend long highway drives and tours has made me not to say NO to it. Been driving for nearly 48yrs.of experience changing cars,may be not now on.May go for add on car considering my age factor!! Well call me a auto Geek!!
- Cons: Well as a disadvantage can't blame the car on indian roads but still very very bumpy in 40kms and is a vibrator mostly.Beyond 50kms and above it glides and the suspension is made hard.Yes best suited for fleets. Steering and the power assist is not very smooth,needs to maneuver a bit. Streeing and rack & pinion life is very short putting a wider tyre. Clutch is very weak for the turbo engine's capacity and shuddering is there in 2nd to 3rd gear shifts in city commuting inspite of my years of driving experience. Needs attention often.ECU and electricals placement under the front seats have made accessibility poor. Low ground clearance makes water entry to cabin in a jiffy and malfunctioning of the electronic circuits. Needs remapping of the ECU (Very Expensive). Notchy gear shifts.Needs to get used to shift intervals by experience and feel of the speed condition. Very close ratio GB requires frequent shifting to avoid load on engine and clutch.
Service centers and the quality of it needs to be ruthlessly pulled up if Tata wants catch the market compared to the Honda, Hyundai etc. Tata with the biggest network of infrastructure and many firsts to their credit should be concentrating mainly on the after sales service with disciplined and well experienced work force in the service stations as compared to Korean and Japanese service network,in a short time coming in to India.Genuine and authentic unbiased feedback of users of Tata customers will go a longway as a Gospel truth.Competitors do have more dissatisfied customers but is not openly evident,due to their publicity hype. Aggressive and quick results are expected of Tata's to out grow the competitors. Im for Made in India rather than Make in India and make a fool of us.
