Detailed Tata Safari Storme Review

What's Good?

Looks, comfort, high-speed stability, space, commanding view

What can improve?

While everything else about the car is good/ great, I must express my extreme disappointment with my new Safari Storme which takes pride in being a tough SUV. However, far from being tough, I have had to deal with several quality issues within just the first two weeks of ownership (1,500 kms). Just to name a few, each day I have had to face some issue or the other: Cigarette lighter comes off from its socket/ Front driver side door window comes off and wouldn’t close/ Left door search light has fallen off/ Second row seats won’t lock and makes rattling noise. The seats would not align in line as well./ Rear view mirror has a distorted view in night view mode./ The front left door loses alignment and creates a popping sound when closing the door. It has resulted in damaging the door edge./ Front left fender not clip broken./ Front and rear wiper motors makes sound./ Rear wiper squeaks./ Rear fuel lid inside panel clips broken on both sides. With just 1500 kms, this tough SUV rattles/ clatters in several places already (Dashboard, doors, seats, seat belt pulley, indicator switch etc.) I have bought an extended warranty for the fourth year. However, I am wondering with the way things are falling apart, will the tough car last that long?

Overall Comments

While they look good, ther are of very poor build quality/ poor fittings caouses breakage of clips and rattling. Even cheap Chinese plastic toys are built to last longer.

Buy only if you are ready to deal with the above issues.
