2002 Tata Safari LX 1.9 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland


A lot of vehicle for the price


Right hand indicator became intermittent.

A glow plug failed at 1000 miles.

Original wiper blades started to "chatter" when operated.

General Comments:

It's never going to win prizes for speed, but it is a serious improvement on the old Gurkha.

I can't fault the driving comfort, the seats are really supportive and the noise levels are very good.

Everything is to hand, easy to find and the instrumentation is good, although the top of the wheel obscures the indicator repeaters. Hey, when did you last have a car with an oil pressure gauge?

Absolutely stacks of space and you could hold a party in the back when the seats are down!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
