Hi,
Tata Safari is a succesful SUV. There are no much problems except regular maintenance.It has been in market since quite long and if there was major fault in it it could not have survived in market.Also there is consistent improvement performance and features. Compared to Scorpio the maintenace would be bit higher on account of higher cost of spares.Also power output of safari by 20 BHP than scorpio.In overall it would be worth going for Safari.

i ve driven my safari 79000kms in 14 months without trouble execpt for regular and timely service if u maintain the vehicle right from the begining it will not trouble you at all .stories cooked by some people who are not actual owners or who have bought a second hand vehicle used roughly earlier gives a negative image otherwise the safari dicor 2.2 is a completly trouble free vehicle offcourse its spares are a bit costlier . then if u drive a merc you cannot expect the maintainance cost of an alto. (im using the 2.2 dicor not the earlier version which was a bit underpowered)

Hi Shekhar,as of time Dicor is one of the proved engine.Each vehicle has its own pros & cons.If properly used & well maintained periodically Safari Dicor is one of the best SUV in India.

hey shekhar, before 6 7 months i was in same situation like you. but finally bought safari LX b4 six month. in six months i drove 20k but not a major problem i have faced. dont go for VX or EX. i guess LX is smart choice @ 8.5Lakh. in summer like this u will face little problem with ac but overall its a nice package @ 8.5.

The safari is much powerful and better in quality than the scorpio and has a better image in the market and service is needed after 15000km or one year which ever is earlier so go in for the safari its a great suv and a pleasure to drive.

It is a value for money SUV, form my opinion and experience. That vehicle is able to protect the life of you and your fellow passengers. I am saying this from my experience.

Have you ever noticed any news on a major accident for Safari and the passengers wounded fatally or died in comparison with Innova/Scorpio?

If an Innova gets a frontal collision bet you; only the rear door will remain unaffected. There was a resent accident happened in Kerala with a KSRTC bus [Asok Leyland] on which the front suspension of the Bus got separated. Think the impact of the collision. From the news videos I observed, only the rear door wan intact and all 5 passenger are dead. Several other cases, where Scorpio included, it was too fatal or too severe.

There another incident from my personal experience. I was travelling in a Safari [96 Model which had a good interior cushioning done all over] from Trivandrum to Ernakulum and on way before reaching Ernakulam, I changed to an Accent belonged to another friend and was following the Safari. Reason was I was in the rear seat and got tired more over the view was not good. One of us joined in Safari and I continued with the Accent. The guy who was driving Safari [the owner] got some rally experience too.

Before reaching Ernakulam Town, while the Safari was moving in a high speed of around 115-120 [one who sitting in the second row was tensed and observing the speedo] trying to overtake and Esteem. Unfortunately the front rt. tyre busted because of some reasons and the vehicle lost the control. It climber over the median, rolled horizontally 3 times and stand still upside down. Normally what we can expect the fate of the 5 inside?

All my 4 classmates and the driver [who is a friend of one among them] peeped out through the rear and side window glass openings, which got removed and no one even had a scratch on their body. Only one got slight shoulder pain.

The vehicle was in a bad shape and was towed from rear. The hard and tough frame was intact and while rolling, the weight of the car was evenly distributed to the pillars and because this nothing happened to the travellers.

People may say that Safari is not used on roads as Scorpio and Innova for speeding and power usage. May be correct. Still remember the accidents I mentioned above, ad still more examples to state from my observation.

My Verdict. Safari is a solid car, with sufficient body weight and chassis strength. Tata has used enough steel to make the users life secure while driving. You may get a cool driving experience in other cars, but the safety feeling wont be there if you know the reality.

Safari DICOR 2.2 is the best SUV. I OWN ONE AND HAVE BEEN USING IT FOR LAST FIVE AND A HALF YEARS AND NO TROUBLE AT ALL, IF YOU DO THE PERIODIC MAINTENANCE REGULARLY. I HAVE COMPLETED 88000 KMTRS SO FAR AND I LIVE IN CHENNAI AND THE ONLY PROBLEM I FACE IS WITH THE TURNING RADIUS. IT'S A VERY GOOD AND SAFE FAMILY CAR.

I have Tata Safari dicor2.2 from last 3 years, already driven 89000 kms till now I had spent 1 lakh on it. once I changed all 4 tyres and after 80000 kms changed suspension end shockers etc. were changed.
had driven to auli with 13 people in it. and it climbed easily on snow also when other suv with chains etc. were struck but it went along.

I was in jammu when flood came safari went inside water and water came inside but still it was running and we safely crossed it.

If you face any problem in it just google it you can repair it yourself only small things and check are required . to keep this monster ready..

till now I had never crossed 2500 rpm ,
I accelerate it slowly even I had driven this beast from delhi to jhalandhar at a speed of 170km/h. I know it was foolish.

really good suv and in this price you do not have any other choice..
