As someone has responded that you are going to buy a dead elephant but its not like that.First of all you should deeply checked the desired vehicle especially engine.If the engine is in good condition then there is no other vehicle even compareable as regards safety point of view.You should go for it.

Hello there, Its definetly an elephant but not a dead one...Get the engine checked out with a proper well known mechanic...esp check whether there is compression from the engine or not .
The 98-99 Model should cost u around 1 to 1.5 lacs or depending upon the condition of Vehicle.
Maitenance totally depends upon have u use the Vehicle.
Do a timely oil change / Services all the components and u live rest of ur life with it.

Too many elephant lovers here !!! Anyways, I personally feel those who love a safari type car shall consider the condition of the vehicle and most importantly the engine as advised by few of the friends above. I also, love Safari.

The Tata Safari is one of the best where safety is concerned and you are on a budget. Ok now the=at a used Safari is what you are looking at, check the compression of the engine at a Tata service station. Insist on this. If the engine does not need an overhaul, you can consider paying 1.2-1.6 lacs provided the paint is still good. The tyres shud have atleast 1.6 mm thread left.

Also check the electricals. Early Safaris had electrical problems.

hi friend u got a right choice. but remember one thing tht safari is a king on roads in india . i like it because i used it and sell it last month i was having a 2004 model in black ...... and i never find any problem in Maintenance but it is costly if u want to make a dead elephant .......
i should prefer u between 1 to 1.5 but it should be in a running condition

Hey Rajiv, Just a suggestion not to go for the Safari. First of all its maintenance cost is very high and it'll cost you for your pocket and that too for a 10 year old vehicle like Safari you'll be only keeping it for the repair works every now and then and would be driving it less. You should think of some better options. Regards, Rahul

My dear Safari lovers, just for your knowledge, the pre dicor Safari has teh same 1968 cc motor which used to charge Sierra. Sierra is significantly lower in weight, so it got the kind of charging ability one expects from a SUV. On the other hand, Safari was grossly underpowerd, and you literally have to beat it like an unwilling ass to move on highways; drive it and you will know. I had a sierra since 1998 which I unfortunately had to sell of in 2004. It was a really mean beast. As far as the security is concerned, well Safari got lot of steel, and if that pacifies your road scare, then its ok. otherwise, it used to have and still have lots of problems with its gearbox, clutch and some time in the turbo charger itself. My suggestion would be that if you are a die hard fan of safari, buy it for no more than 1.25 lacs and then spend some 2-2.5 lacs on customization and tuning.So after all this, you will get a real wild beast of a SUV under 4 lacs and really enjoy driving it.
Happy driving
Sharbendu
