Yes, it’s true the looks and features we became so much fan off, were not so smart features after all. In1plain and simple words the common-sense was totally missing from this vehicle.! Yes, you read it correctly,1the common sense is not their at all in TATA NEXON XZ+. First, the Dancing Mirrors…! Scenario:- You just1came out of your home and stepped in your car ….……as soon as you will push the “Start/Stop(SS) Button1only once…….your rear blower will start……? Dude I am sitting in the front…….you should have1started the front blowers….? As mostly it’s single passengers sitting in the Cars………so why the hell1in the world you are starting the rear blower first.? Strange it is……! Then for the Front blowers you1press the SS button once again……okay the Ignition is “ON” now, with front blowers….Good…….but1why the hell the Side View mirrors are opening……? I have not even started the car yet and maybe I was just1not going to go anywhere at all………but why the Side View mirrors are opening if I am not going1anywhere.….? Talked to TATA MOTORS……they said it’s a Welcome feature in Top variant……so can’t do1much about it…! Okay, then I closed the Rear view mirrors by pushing the inner controller downward….cool,1they are close now. Now, I start the Engine to go to my office by pressing the SS button(along with Clutch)1third time, engine starts….perfect…….Side View Mirrors open again…? Dude you just lost it…….It’s1insane……I am such a driver that never uses the Rear view mirrors, and always do the lane driving…….!1So, TATA engineers should have given some sort of disabling mechanism for Side View mirrors’ traumatic dance1moves again n again……! Keep it simple guys and don’t make a mess of such AI integration…….we are1humans and we don’t need such repeated welcomes by our daily ride……just for starting1engine…….twice……jeez.! Mockery of the SS Button? Suppose you have just reached somewhere, want to Stop1the car engine, and simply need to wait for someone……….and keep the Blower/ Fan “ON”……….dude1you need to press the SS button three times…….! Just to “Stop the Engine and keep the FAN ON”. Let me1do it for you…….First SS Button press shuts the ENGINE OFF(along with Ignition+ FAN+ Rear1Blower-everything “OFF”)……….Second Press, re-starts the rear blower…….Third press, re-starts the1front blower / fan for you…….now you can wait for your someone.……! TATA engineers could have just Shut1the Engine off and kept the Fan/ Blower running in the single press…….isn’t it simple and easy……!1But TATA don’t want you to wait for anybody in your car…….specially with your fan “ON”. Or be ready1to press it three repeated times…….! Second, the Central locking……again without common-sense….!1Guys, you’re just not safe in TATA NEXON specially the XZ+ model….yes the top variant is specially1designed for only those people who have enough of money to be targeted by robbers again and again……!1Don’t believe me…….just trying stopping at any red-light and ….and……and don’t try to STOP the1engine……….ever……ever……ever…….forget the fuel economy / environment pollution / fuel1conservation…………don’t Switch OFF your engine at any cost…….Because, the moment you will do1this…….NEXON has opened all the four gates for your being vulnerable to robbers outside your car…….!1THIS HAS BEEN THE MOST SHOCKING OF THEM ALL…….! It’s been one month now…….I never switched off my1engine at any red-light or anywhere other than my office or my home………I FEEL SCARED…….IN NEXON XZ+.1AS I CANNOT TURN OFF MY ENGINE ANYWHERE AT ALL…….I MUST, IMMEDIATELY PRESS THE LOCK/UNLOCK KEY DOWN BELOW1TO RE-LOCK ALL YOUR DOORS…….AND JUST HOPE THAT YOU ARE FAST ENOUGH THAT NO ROBBER/ MOLESTER / RAPER HOPPED1IN YOUR CAR YOU WILL START FEELING SAFE AGAIN IN YOUR CAR…! Third…….only until you open your drivers’1door unlock lever…….!? Yes, I travel mostly alone from my home to office and then back…….! The moment1I open my(driver) unlock lever….all the doors will open……? Dude this is not Central locking……! If I1need to open all the doors I will use the Lock/Unlock Button on the front console…….! I am just opening my1Doors lever to unlock and TATA has once again left you completely vulnerable……by opening all four1doors……! You can also add My Laptop on the Back seat, lying their with all Car gates open…….for the1uninvited snatcher…….….just waiting to be picked….…….jeez…….….I’m once again scared, even1my laptop is scared now….….! Now you know….why I told that common-sense is missing in this Car.! Fourth,1You cannot leave your Elderly people inside the Car…… in a NEXON XZ+. Yes, don’t blame TATA for1this……….you should not bring any Non-technical(or not so tech friendly people along with you in the1NEXON car)……….or teach them to immediately press the Lock/Unlock key(on Dashboard) for closing all doors1& for their own safety. Scenario:- My father/ mother both senior citizens, sitting in the car….me driving1….okay. Now, I stop for a moment to bring something from the Market enroute……they both are still sitting1within the car…….! I think I should leave them with atleast fan/blower “ON”…….or they may suffer1due to lack of ventilation / air.! So, the Ignition is kept “ON”….so the blower can work…….Now you1stepped out of the car, you just pulled your door unlock- lever…….once again all the doors are1open………….immediately teach them to press the Dashboard Key with “Lock/Unlock” Icon on1it………because even if you are carrying the Key in your pocket…….and you try to lock the Car by the1key in your hand from outside…….all the doors will remain open as the Ignition is “ON”….! What good1is the Mainkey button Lock when the Ignition is “ON” – NO Good.! Only way to close “ALL” the doors1in such a scenario….make your not so Tech-friendly old parents….learn some tech finally….…….as TATA1has once again left them totally vulnerable from outside attacks………! I hope you are getting to the main1issues, I’m trying to highlight here……….! Mileage………please don’t ask…….not atleast1me….please.….! My car has just ran 500 Kms in total run…….and the average shown in the meter for that1500 kms is 10.0……………….! Yes, the Trip meter which I never reset right from the start………is showing the1average of 10 kms for the whole life distance of 500 kms……! Forget the claims TATA motors / or ARAI did for 17 kms average……! You’re most welcome to see my Trip meter with 500kms total Car run at 10.0 kms average.! Live example for you to see. I had a word yesterday at my Dealer he simply said please don’t go with the Meter gauge…….they do not show the true picture…….!1Go for full –tank and then do the Mileage calculations. I mean okay……but didn’t he meant to say that1the Tata Fixed our NEXON vehicles with Faulty Meters….? On enquiring further he said he is a New joiner from1SKODA Motors….………and he agreed that my above mentioned points are very valid and their must be some1way to disable them through some computer setting….…….”but the actual person who can do this is not1present now”…………so maybe tomorrow he replied…….……….when the engineer will come they will1inform me…….!

Purchased XZA+ on 20/6/2019 from Ambattur, Chennai. High vibrations in 1st gear and while reversing from day 1. Weird noise after applying brake from front and back. Complained at service centre - though they are courteous they did not accept that there is a fault in the vehicle. Complained twice to CEO Concorde and Tata Motors. Car was in service centre for 7 days - clutch was defective to be replaced along with fly wheel, for that Service center made me to take AMC Gold which I am not interested but paid to get my car out of service center. Problems still persist - but as per TATA these are normal:1.Swing motion of car like wooden horse toy(min 3 times) after applying brake.2.Weird noises after braking -various types of sounds can"t be explained.3.Engine knocking sound while AMT changes gears from 1 to 2 to 3 - even bus/truck will not have this type of sound. Inconsistent and mis fits in interior plastic -looks premium but of cheap quality plastic - any item you place in glove box, sun glass folder, water bottles in door panels will give sound / vibration.And lastly forget about mileage - in city traffic 6 to16.5(petrol).Complete package of unpleasant driving in city traffic.

Sharing My Yesterday (18/11/2018) Experience:- Tata Nexon Kraz Plus (Petrol) is Best Level Compact SUV till now as per my 700 Kilometer Local Drive Experience. All Doors Side Rubbers protectors came out easily on dust cleaning. Driver Side Front Pillar visibility issue and creates right side blind spot. Others no issue find in this compact SUV.Very Poor Level Tata Service Centre (Hartron Motors LLP, Sector-18, Gurugram) Washing, Air, Vacuum & Cleaning Service.Never advise to take this Washing & Cleaning service there. Best Quality Services available outside Service Stations at various locations in Gurgaon with cheaper cost within 45-60 minutes maximum.But Tata Service Centre staff don"t know the cleaning process of cars. They don"t wash, air, vacuum service properly.Dust inside cabin after Air Pressure and Tree Leaves left outside Wiper Area after wash remains in car washing, after than vacuum cleaner service also very bad and at last on remaining dust of inside the dashboard, they done the polish work for brightness increasing.Small Mud stains still remains outside the car body, which are very easily removable with wet cloth in-front of them I clean with my finger only.I don"t understand what they have done in my SUV in the name of washing & cleaning from 12:34 PM to 4:45 PM (4 Hours ++ Time Taken and All time I keep standing there and watched all their activities on other cars also.)At last I have took the gate pass, because I have to go somewhere for meeting.As per my experience totally dumb & untrained staff at washing & cleaning service.

I own an XMA petrol and have done about 1600KM now. The performance improved a bit after the first service (checkup) but it seems like the mileage has taken a further hit. I"ve been observing the a mileage of 7KM/L in city driving and I don"t rush. And this is extremely disappointing. I can"t even blame the gearbox because I drive in manual mode so I can shift when I want to. I usually shift at about 2K RPM. Now another problem is that since it isn"t a high capacity engine performing duty in a heavy car, the dependency on the turbocharger is high. Now to work around the turbo lag, one needs to put the foot down to get a quick move on.So, this is like a vicious circle Nexon Petrol owners have gotten caught in. I believe and desperately hope Tata fixes this issue, as this definitely will affect the owners

Don't Buy TATA Nexon XMA or XZ Plus Petrol Version, I Own one & its pathetic- Things 1) Average, Even though company claims that it has 17 'ish something, In city its 7 to 9.7 km/lit only, before 1st service it was 5 km/lit can you believe...its like taking white elephant at home.. 2) AMT thing is all rubbish, its slow pick up like hell & roll back on gradient, Believe me i own this from 2 months & took car to dealership for 3 times, its performance is too sluggish, pick up is like shit. 3) Car built might be strong yet it has obstruction in vision due to thick side beam & rear you will hardly get much to see.

A perfect family car, gives excellent safety and features. The is low end turbo lag in petrol varients but still a powerful car that can be used for any purpose. The suspension is so good and the driving is really fun. The mileage is also not bad considering the mass of the vehicle. I get around 15-18 kmpl on highways if driven properly. For me 0-100 comes at 11 seconds. This car doesn't have any problem driving through bad roads it takes them with ease. If you are a person looking for a multipurpose car this is it. This is a good family car and also can be driven for pure fun(be safe).

Nexon is not just VFM but a great experience car. In few areas, it's difficult to even match it but my personal experience with car has not been so great ! Being a completely new car from scratch from tata stable,it has it's own share of issues. Rattling issues and random mechanical issues decreases the confidence on the car + in-experience of service staff make the issues and whole experience of owning a good car takes a hit!!!Rattling noises from plastic to mirrors, issues in basic car mechanic like gear-box problem in slotting 2/3/4 gear during driving, gear lever getting stuck on 3 gear , steering column noise, steering getting stuck on either of extreme ends, suspension rods noise etc are just few examples I've faced or facing currently.It's these experiences which eclipses the goodness of the car which are comfort of choosing different driving modes, classy interiors & exteriors, superb rear seating comfort, practical usable features etc PS: I drive daily 100+ kms to office with around 85+ kms in highway still getting not the best of results in terms of mileage

This is my family's first car. Really happy with the features and styling. But company should work on the their software and infotainment system. It is not seamless, it's laggy. Features are top notch but what is the use when they does not work seamlessly and properly. Company should resolve this issue in the future updates. Riding quality is good although instant pickup is missing in every mode. It's not a sports car but engine refinement is needed so it can be fast in no time.

Overall performance and comfort for long distance driving is very good. I like the way the car handles on the road and the steering is quite responsive. AMT is excellent in sports mode on highways. The %5 star Ancap rating is reassuring and the car does feel solid. The fit and finish could be better and the touch screen more responsive and bigger but these are not critical. The car has performed very well over some rough terrain. Sure it does not have snob value but who cares.
