2004 Tata Safari 1.9 diesel
No air-bags, safety features non-existent.
Not a good bargain. Design is quite stylish, but engine & transmission is poor.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Don't buy this car if you value your sanity. I have had a Tata
Safari for 18 months, and the rear door and passenger rear door leaked like a sieve. Lost all its coolant soon after the doors were fixed, followed by a faulty gearbox (10 weeks to fix), faulty brake drums after that, Bad tracking on the front driver's side,
and the most recent failure, the turbo has just failed. The only
good point is Tata have honoured the warranty faultlessly so far. Also, the depreciation has gone from £14000 to £5000 in 18 months.
This Car is great! It is not perfect, but there isn't a car that doesn't give any trouble. I love every bit of this SUV and I had it for 6 years now. Will upgrade when the new safari (2008) comes out.
This car is perfect for me. It is not trouble free, but no car is. I had three different makes in my life; Toyota Tercel, Fiat Punto and Tata Safari. The Tata is the best one so far.
