Love your videos and avid follower of your videos.

Dear Gaganji

You may recall our various conversations. I chose XUV300 D AMT but ultimately had to cancel due to delayed delivery & closure of Dealer.

I had increased my budget to 18-19lakhs and you suggested Tata Harrier XMA.

1) However i had updated this to XTA+, Dealer had given a discount of 45k and the cost comes to 21.78lakhs(without insurance).
2) i tried to compare with Creta SX O D AT which was costing 20.7lakhs(w/o. insurance). Creta denied to give a single rupee discount because i am going for car leasing.

By spending 1.18lakhs, i am going for Harrier XTA+ for reasons:1) One segment above to Creta 2) Excellent handling on highway 3) Awe some road presence 4) D8 frame of land rover 5) excellent space 6) Hyundai service not that Great, customers taken for granted 7) more spacious 8)real Suv not name sake 9) Harrier itself is a statement 10) Awesome power

I just one doubt: How easy or tough in city drive with automatich with its size, pl share your experience. What is your feed back on city mileage & Highway

I am a good driver generally very few times i rush for too much speed(Chennai city)

Hi Srinivas ji,

Greetings !!

Surely yes - Harrier is not a segment better car but league better pick over Creta. Theres absolute no comparison to
> Ride
> Handling
> Build Quality
> Feel of Rear SUV
> Overall Feel Factor

Yes - Harrier fit and finish may not be as good and in features list may not be as impressive as what Creta - but be assued Tata Harrier is a lot better pick and is something which will always bring a smile while on the move.

In terms of driving - see important to get on that Harrier comes with Hydraulic Steering - which always feels heavy and relative cumbersome in beginning for someone whos driving Maruti or Hyundai cars for years. One need effort to turn steering - but its all about getting used to by driving in few times. Rest
> in terms of Automatic gearbox response - absolute no complaints. Smooth
> Experience fun in sports mode to unleash this SUV
> No Dearth of Power (even Eco Mode has lot of grunt too and care for relaxed usage in city condition or on highway in cruise mode can slot in Eco Model)

I see no reason for this car to be tough
Just need to get hands on few times by driving car to have steering feel as thats the only downside in city use
Rest - despite of size - no other concern - its fair easy to drive and experience the very best from this SUV

Hope should help !!

Dear Gaganji

Thanks for the reply.

I liked Harrier because;

Appearance
Size
Space
Next segment to Creta
Automatic and Power
Real SUV

I had happened to see few customer usage reviews on team BHP by chance and almost all customers had issues like: rattling sounds, service Centre MIS handling, some other repeated niggles..C puller issues etc

I am looking at 15 years of usage I am worried as what is in store for me whether peace of mind or daily worry

What is your personal experiences shared on Tata Harrier on these niggles. Pl share
I don’t find any alternatives as well

Hi Srinivas ji,

Our observation about Tata Cars is that
> Initial Lot Batches of there car range are not the best as has many teething issues reported in
> However, OEM is pro-active and work basis customer feedback / service center observations on regular basis and keep improvising product silently
> Harrier as a product as what launched in 2019 January got several enhancements in drive, performance with improved Braking, ORVM Design changes as what sold in 2020 in BS6 and even further silently updated in 2021 too.
> Product per se as i referred earlier - fit and finish is not best. Some kind of rattles, small niggles may still be observed - however is lot lesser
> Owner need to make expectation correct that hes not buying Toyota - hes buying Tata and may experience service center and there team more than often

Having said same
> As its a Hyundai Sourced Automatic gearbox - there are no reliability issues with transmission
> Kryotec Engine is tested and proven and is like next generation of Varicor engine which Tata was using earlier and in BS6 is even further better

Final recommendation: If you buying Tata Car - try to buy from latest lot (August - September make) as you never know that some more issues are been ironed out in new batches as what say March 2021 or April 2021 lot.

Hope should help in making a choice.

Hello Gagan Ji,
I have seen a 2nd hand Toyota Yaris which has been driven under 9000 kms and is 2018 registered. Offered price is 8 Lakhs. Will it be a good buy? Our first car was Old gen Ford Figo Petrol. Main criterias we are looking are hassle free and peaceful ownership, Safety, Space, Comfort, Mileage and Performance.
