    Default Tata Xenon

    This Tata looks a lot better than the old one. Will apparently be available in South Africa in 2008, with a new engine, developing more power.

    Things I do not like!!!
    Sharp edges every where on the dash board (Cut my finger on the window switch)
    Even the seat belts feel cheap and have some rought edges on the belt
    Whole steering wheel virbates at idle
    Steering is very vague
    lot of play on steering
    No power under 2200rpm
    Redline 3000RPM
    lots of play on gear stick


    Things I like

    Got a phone call from Tata just now They are claiming that pre inspection was not done on the Tata I drove
    They offered me a Tata for the day (a Pre inspected one) So I guess I will be driving a Tata tommorw

    Goosen gaan slaap vanaand vroeg want jy gaan die geduld more nodig he
    Het een geleen vir 'n aflewering en dit was die grootste fout van my lewe.
    As die lig groen slaan klim uit en help stoot want voor jy oor is is die lig rooi.
    Jy moet dalk bietjie kerrie in sy tenk gooi. Dit mag dalk help met sy vuma.

    Right I have done a total of 100km with a Tata Xenon Today Right the verdict is still pretty much the same!!!

    I like
    Plenty of rear leg room
    Mp3/Cd player with usb

    I do not like
    1) Very slow power steering
    2) Brakes do not feel very encouraging
    3) Very bouncy ride
    4) Cheap plasticy interior with rough edges
    5) Huge gaps around some plastic bits
    6) Gearing is all wrong
    7) Very noisy interior
    8) A lot of engine vibration
    9) throttle is bit on the sensitive side
    10) 2200Rpm at 120km/h (redline 3000rpm)
    11) Can't down gear from 5th to 4th if you are doing over 110km/h That sends it into the redline and beyond
    12) Its Hard to maintain 120km/h
    13) Speedo is really inacurate indicated 120km/h is about 104km/h true speed
    14) About none of the body are aligned correctly
