    Smile Tata Safari 4x4

    Greatings to all,

    I bought a brand new Tata Safari 4x4 6 days ago. I've done 1200km already and the fuel consumption is geting better by the day, getting 12.1km/L mixed driving. I only paid R220K and are very happy so far.
    Will keep you updated.

    Thanks! Please do, I checked the specs and I am impressed with what one gets for ones buck.

    For me it is economy vs. power and reliability!

    Thumbs up

    Hi

    I bought a 2009 Tata Safari about 2 months ago & done about 2500km & so far it's still impressing me. Fuel cosumption is on average just over 9L/100km or about 10km\L mixed driving @ the Coast. So far i think it's good value for money.

    Done some off-roading, had my doubts initially about the shift on the fly, but it seems to work well. As for it's offroad capabilities, didn't do anything tooo hectic, however all the obstacles that i tried, i done with ease, still trying to keep my van new for the moment, maybe in the next coming weeks i will try something a little more challenging.

    What a car!!! I have the Tata Safari 4x2, drove it to Mozambique together with a Ford Courier 4X4 and believe me, it kept up with that bad boy. It shocked us all, the 4x2 went places that no 4x2 should have gone. It impressed me so much, that I am now upgrading to the 4x4 version. Its economical, comfortable, powerful and offers great value for money!

    And since Tata own Land Rover now, they will probably get even better but maybe more expensive as well

    My buddy has one for about 2 years now, this is the cause that I know own a 4x4. That van is amazing. He has the 4x4 and man is it capable offroad. We have tried a few rather hectic trails, aand to be honest, I wont take my van there as it is my everyday car and I cant afford to damage it. However I like the rollers that protect the diff on those safari's as well as all the extra features that are optional on alot of other 4x4. NICE VANS

    We had to buy a bakkie for the farm manager recently. Bought the bottom of the range, but it still comes with 3l Turbo diesel, electric windows and diff lock and we had a radio fitted as well as rubberising done. Total cost R122k (and then we claim the VAT back).

    Sure its only 2x4, but it is not a toy, its a work bakkie, and for that price? I was impressed.

    Hi, keep us updated on its longterm reliability. Must say the Safari has everything I need, one just don't see many. Still needs to prove itself here like the Scorpio, there seems to be many of them on the road. Cheers

    Sadly, TATA have advised and confirmed the SAFARI is being discontinued in RSA. Sad end to a really fantastic vechile. Just a pity about getting parts and TATA's pathetic service levels.

    Go to team-bhp.com - it's an indian car forum. Do a search for Tata safari and read up on some of the incredibly detailed readers initial ownership reports. Should have tons of info there.

    I have a 3.0 DiCOR 4x2 bakkie and so far I'm very impressed apart from some electronic gremlins.

    Fuel consumption is 12km/L.

    If anybody sees a rolled Safari or Xenon 4x4 for sale for spares, let me know please.

    I have a plan to upgrade my 4x2 to 4x4.
