haven't updated about nano for long time!
i recently did a ~500km drive from coimbatore to nagercoil. i was hearing a thud thud sound from underbody when ever it hits a pothole. i was suspecting the suspension and dampers. so took the car to tata service and complained about the same. initially they dismantled the bumpers front skirts and did a TD and confirmed its not the suspension or dampers. they kept the car for 3 days and after some R&D they confirmed its the steering box and it need complete replacement. initially they refused to replace in warranty due to upsized wheels . but later some how they did the replacement in warranty. leaving the steering box problem , i had some rattling noise from door pads. my electrician broke some pad pins when fixing the front door speakers and central locking module and also some pins in A pillar pads were not there and it was showing gaps. the tube for windshield washer got cracked and water was leaking in between the nozzle . replaced that too. the main reason for my tire uneven wear for the problem with rack and pinion, thats what the service advisor told. i couldnt get the Arrowhead filters, angad , who is also a fellow TAI
-an is not working for that company any more, so replaced with the stock airfilters. my speedometer is having some error, replacing that in warranty. speedo was not in stock on that day. waiting for that. bought a cheap chinese rear parking assist with 4 sensor for 1160rs in ebay. yet to fix that. thats the 53800 Km Odo update. travelling back to coimbatore tomorrow!
