Pros : Nil

Cons : Poor build quality and service

Tata Indigo eCS is the cheapest car? The poorest possible quality. A car one would not recommend to one's worst enemy. Note following stats: The AC rotary switches (rarely touched) on the dash board was non-functional in just 13 months of use. In my earlier third world Korean car, Santro, all the controls worked perfectly  for 10 years, 100000 kms till I sold the car. The AC was non-functional within three years, 23000 kms of use. In Santro  AC worked without any issues for 8 years 75000 kms. Door sealing in Indigo started coming off in just three months. Water flooded in during monsoons. In Santro I had driven the car thru full tyre deep water without any issues. The electrical connectors in two of the engine cylinders loosened in just 20 months, 18000 kms, leading to non-firing and knocking in the cylinders. Service levels are at the poorest. Complaints or feedback are just traded around without any affirmative outcomes.
