I am sharing my amazing Nano ownership story.
I am living in a joint family and we have family of 11 members that have 3 kids. so as per family needs & we own two cars from last few years, earlier we own M800 & santro & now we upgrade to Dzire & Ertiga as family grow. In my family only me & my brother drive & my father never got chance to learn driving as he spend most of his life in managing family & job. My father use honda activa for there daily use (most of these daily tasks are under 4-5 km max). Earlier my office is near to home & i manage to come home in case there is requirement for car or there is some emergency situation but things change in starting of 2015 when me & my brother both of us change job. now my office have a more then one hour drive from home & my brother will have to go for long duration onsite trips & one of my car will remain parked at home most of time. when family members have to go somewhere when i am in office they have to call taxi or auto as no one know driving while my new car will remain parked at home
. so i decided to train my father & i know they always have a dream to own a car so when i ask them then they agree on this & its the starting my a amazing nano story.
now i starting to give training to my father of my Ertiga & soon i realize that both of my cars (Dzire & ertiga) is too big to learn driving for someone who are in age group of 60 so i decided to stop training as i don't want to put life of my father or anyone else on road in risk.
After few moths my mother told me that my father have a dream to learn driving but they are very disappointed as i stop giving driving lessons to then & i am not helping. when i know this i just become sad as i am just worried for there safety, i didn't respond & started to looking for some alternative solution. After 2-3 month one of my relative call me to check price of new Alto800 & they also ask me to check if they can give there nano in exchange. they are buying new car to give as a marriage gift.
when i check there nano i found it perfect to learn driving & i offer them to give nano to me in the same price as they are getting from maruti dealer & i also give another offer that even after buying this nano if they need it for short duration then i will never say no. so they will agree & i bring car to my home & they say that they didn't need money now & i can use it for a month & if i like then i can pay else i have a option to return it
Deal is finalize in 35K, i bring car home & spend around 4k on car use it for 20 days. during this my father learn driving on nano & i surprise that they learn very quickly & they i send it back to my relatives as they need car for marriage function related works.
During marriage function i again meet relative & we had a "Chai Per Charcha" on nano & say that now my father is learned almost 70-80% driving & i am planning to buy some good condition car in future. they my relative say that if you want to sell this nano then plz don't pay money for this to us & use it & when you got some other car then return it to us as we are also feeling absence of our Nano.
now i started looking on online sites for some good condition nano & check few cars but didn't found any god condition car. So finally we decided to go for new nano as my father is comfortable in driving nano & we check new nano on Tata showroom. on the same day i got a call from two person who wish to sell there nano's these are as
1.) 2015 nano twist top model with less then 1k kms in odo & asking price in 2.10L
2.) 2012 sept Nano CX with central locking & Seat cover & 4K in odo & asking price is 1.10
so 2012 is in my budget so i decided to check car on 26th jan & confirm it to car owner. on 26 th i check car & found it almost new without any scratch or dent & it drive like new. but i wish to get it inspected from tata service center to confirm that it does not have any accidental repair or any other issue. car owner immediately agree of this & i request him to do it on upcoming weekend as my wife is hospitalized & me & my wife expecting our 1st baby so its not possible for me to manage few hrs in weekdays. on the same day (26th jan) in evening a little angel come in life & i am blessed with a cute baby girl & after 2 days when i got some time i call nano owner & we go to TASS & they show me entire car service history & say that its very less used car & didn't have any mechanical or electrical issue & they check it properly. now ask him for the fair deal price & he say 94K & i also feel it reasonable & i finalize deal & pay entire amount next day & bring car to my home.
I will share some more interesting details soon that i feel in last one month when i use 2 different nano.
