    Na ek hier gelees het, regtig, oorweeg mense nog n tata?

    I have a Tata Xenon 2.2 DC 4x4 and have no complaints thus far. Its offroad ability is what impresses. If u want fancy then get something else. if u wanna play then get a Tata Xenon or Safari.

    Default Tata 2.2

    I bought my 2nd TATA Xenon 4x4 in Jan2013 have driven it 50000km and this is the biggest pice of Crap I have ever owned with no help from TATA hed office.
    Had the following replaced in the time i have had this.
    1 going down to mosselbay easter 2013 right hand side front wheel bearing had to be repacked in MB and 4x4holiday trip was cancelled.
    2 Cape town trip intercooler pipe came of twice at night what a dam job to fix at night.
    3 Replaced parts of the frontsuspension.
    4 replace turbo and exhauste manifold gsket.
    5 front right brake locked up again cancell holiday over long weekend. Replace both front discs and pads both sides.
    6 dec wiper control broke was solderd as there are no new part in SA to replace.
    7 Right front wheel folded in under bakkie ta +_ 40 50 kmph on a dirt road.
    8 replace copper washer under injector.
    9 front stabelizer bar rubber bushed had to be replaced tried 3 times no succees bushes too small now waiting for new ones x india no courtesy car just a fat FJ finger
    10 noise behind cab suspect it is the exhauste but no one can find it?
    Have given up on TATA head office fighting for the last 9 months will have to drive this pice of crap till it is paid off as there is no resale value and no help from tata. Will never ever buy this product or any other accociated with this group. Own a Mahindra SUX 500 the best ever and service is out of this world will buy a mahindra 4x4 any time

    and the sad part is:

    if you buy Tata due to budget constraints, you will only have so much more budget constraints when you want to purchase something else again after you gave away the tata for free.

    Thumbs down

    I have the TATA Xenon 4x4 3.0L. The worst Vehichle I have ever had. From day two, check engine, lose nuts snd bolts, out of wheel alignment, gear lever came off, rear LHS wheel just came off while driving at 100km/h, never found the wheel, and the dealer never managed to replace the rim, rim not produced anymore. Broke front wheel control arms. Now the 4x4 LHS front CV joint is out, and new apparently costs R12000. Engine metal under cover fell off. A nightmare. I am looking for a CV joint, please help. Call me at +264811273498, Namibia. By the way, this vehicle cannot be sold. No one is interested.

    5. Trip to Namibia on good sand roads.-bonnet bolts very loose shifting, doors ratting (all 4 nadir pins loose) door hinge to be replaced body panels and main support cross strut tightened during the trip. Protector plate loose.
    6. Headlamp replaced- inner reflector fell off laying inside
    7. Pollen filter replaced dealer says it doesnt have a pollen filter (so I took mine out to show them)
    8. Shocks worn out 26000km OME replacements.
    9. Major vibration reported many times- no solution
    10. Leak of some sort un-known, diagnosed as front shaft diff seal leak -6-8 months approx later after loss of ordered parts twice dealership find diesel leak on main rail pipe. This has now become obvious leak. Eventually pipe replaced and...... (No more front shaft seal leak!!)
    11. Told to check driveshaft not covered on warranty. About 46000km balanced and new universal joints
    12. Still vibrating ALL MOUNTS ETC CHECKED
    13. Front suspension- braking and control of vehicle poor- lower control arm rubbers worn plus other small ones- about 50000km
    Steering box adjusted.
    14. Trip to Swazi land - main aircon compressor died about 55000km
    15. Left door central locking not working-intermittent-fixed by owner.
    16. Taken vehicle to dealership for diagnosis on vibration (headoffice came out to check and will send report still waiting (3mo later)
    17. Went again to check same problem- now told clutch....vibration....
    18. Protector plate falls partially off- loss of bolts every time after service- new bolts washers put in and tightened much better rear brackets for plate both broken off.
    19. Front left CV/driveshaft disintegrated-still lots of grease in joint. 57000km
    Did the dealership check the balancing of the wheels? Had a similar problem with Mahindra steel rims, which are similar to your vehicles' rims. Took the tyres off and put them on the balancer at TWT. found that they were between 2mm and 4mm oval. Mahindra footed the bill for replacement mags. mags.

    Maak die Datsun reg, trek daai koste van die prys van die Xenon af en verkoop dan vir daardie prys. Jelo is dan nog steeds beter af met die Datsun as die Xenon
