Falcon's review on Tata Zest XT Petrol
Year of Manufacture : 2015 | Driven no. of Kms. : 4600
- Pros: Excellent car, great space (just like Tata), excellent cooling, great music system, good driving experience overall for the money you pay Engine started making some noise after 3000+ km everytime I accelerated. Took it to service center and they cleaned the spark plugs and clutch pedal height. And the car was as silent as on day one. The build quality is excellent. I have been hit by Bolero, Santro in the back, but not even a single dent. The gear shift lever is not so smooth. It needs little lubrication, but the TASS are scared to open the console on a new car.
- Cons: Mileage is little poor in city jams. Moreover, the first gear is very short and very quickly, you need to move to shift in second gear. Driving in B2B traffic requires one to work alot on the gear.
The pick up from a stationary car is little slow if you are driving in city/eco mode. Overtaking is usually possible in the sports mode. Mileage in petrol is on the lower side. I feel if you regularly service your vehicle, maintaining Zest will be a peaceful experience.
