Hai dears What about TATA SAFARI DICOR 3L? is it better than TCIC ? what is deffrent frm 2.2L. ?actually i dont know about cars engines. pls help me brothers. now i got a 3L model -05 for 5L its a good deal? thnx. Sahil

By Sahil on Dec 18, 2009


  • The DICOR 3L has an engine that is a turbocharged CRDI version of the TATA 407 truck engine. It is not refined and is prone to vibration; in some vehicles that I have seen, the vibration is so bad that you feel like getting out of the car. So, avoid that one. Also, the mileage is poor. At 5L, it is not value for money. I would think that you should go for it only if it is around 3.5L to 4L.
    The 2.2 engine is a much better, more powerful and more refined engine. It will give better mileage and will be a better option in the long run..

  • dear i agree with sasi menon,2.2 is the year back i hv also safari dicor 3L 2006 model i sell it for the price of 4.5 lack.So please dont go for 3L price is no matter but 2.2 engine is better then 3L.
    Answer by Nishant on Dec 20, 2009

  • Expert Hi,
    Tata Safari 2.2 has been more of success and has great resalle value hence recommneded togo for the same.Though 3.0 L version has more power the overall performance is not as good as 2.2 version.
    Answer by Shiva Shankar on Dec 20, 2009

  • I have 3 L Safari Dicor its awesome engine best pick up 12+ average in city very low maintenance, no need to change timing belts in every 35k kms its gives 14 to 16 average on highways and going very smooth up to 0 to 160 its a good long life and no trouble engine.its better than 2.2 and 2.0 and about maintenance is very cheaper than 2.0 and 2.2.

  • Dear all i have bought a Safari 3.0 ltr . It has good power . Dont know about the maintenance cost / parts availability ? please give me a brief , is it a good choice ?
    Answer by Krishna on May 12, 2014

  • Krishna
    As long as you have bought the vehicles, there are no look backs.
    Since you haven't specified the year, it is bit difficult to dscribe. As of a general trend, Tata new ventures have better durability and reliability once the settle over a period of time.
    Google Ownerships for more specific info.

  • I am going to buy a 2006 Safari 3.0L (74k mileage) single owner for 2 Lakhs. I just want to know whether its a good deal or not. Please suggest
    Answer by Kail on Dec 23, 2014

  • 3.0L , Its Better in terms of mechanical stability and reliability, as its not a timing belt based design, rather gear like trucks.(coz its 407 Block). However it feel more raw, and obviously more vibration, but way too good for highway drives. 2.2 on the other side was a disaster on launch, tata had to do major reworks on the timing belt part to fix it. Many Many engine seizures on 2.2 due to timing belt breakage. Generally i find 2.2 being maintain. 3.0L on other side, remember its a 407 block, which comes with 300,000Km Warranty so if you properly treat your 3.0L safari, it will run for ages without any trouble. I own a 3.0L for 9 years now, 2.2 Seen many being sold after engine failure. I dont trust tata on the timing belt designs.
    2.2 also have issues with Injector being stuck to the head, and not coming out, ending up in complete head replacement, where as 3.0L generally injectors can be pulled out without any trouble. 2.2 comes with hydraulic lash adjuster, which gets noisy over time, where as 3.0L is a push rod design, its noisy until it heats up :) . I am a 3.0L fan, just bought xenon crew cab, 3.0L.
