Detailed Tata Indica Review

What's Good?

I liked the milege which i am getting out of my indica ie 18-20 kmpl after 13 years of extensive use.Indica responds to your timely care and maintainence generously.Spare and maitenance costs are the cheapest.Engine though crude with todays exacting standards does the job,with hardly any costly/heavy maintainence.Body steel is heavy in comparison to other cars.Passenger Space is more than adeqate for a middle income family.Battery lasts long atleast 4 years unlike opinion that diesal engines batterys dont last.

What can improve?

A/C in extreme summers of north india is not upto mark of my indica year May 2000.The rear wheels tends to go outwards and cannot be aligned.Front wheels also tends to go out of alignment and eats away the inner side of the tyres. Radiator fan tends to jam especially after winters and cause overheating of engine and boiling out of the coolant. Costly spares like the starter motor and alternator should be repairable type not replacable type.Stability for the corners at speed can be stiffened.During the rainy season a sqeaky sound is generated when you start the car as if the car is involuntarily breaking and then the car breaks free and behaves normally. Engine oil leakage from cylinder head area every 5000kms.

Can be improved

Anti rust coating under the body will increase the life of the car.
