Nano , nano... nano ..
nano applications are available in bank.
Is it available only in sbi , oh i have account in indian bank and icici only . how can i get that?
how to buy a nano without td.
Will i get them soon , if i pay a full cash.
its the world cheapest car.
nano is made for Europe too.
nano meets safety standards.
my nano is allotted on june 11 , what about yours?
Is nano drivable for more than 300kms?
Hope these were the common thing we could hear some 400 odd days back.
Now nano is avalable , and delivered just in 10 days max - and just a single day if the required colour is available.
The one is this test is car bough just 13 months ago .
this is the basic of basic nano.
The rear 1L car.
the on road was 134500/- 13 months back. ac version was 30000/- extra.
Now the drive.
The keys itself mention , that i have a cheap plastic inside!
open up the door and there is load of space to welcome you.
the driver seat is high commanding position , even upto a scorpio level.
only the driver seat can be moved front and back and the back rest cant be adjusted , - i normally drive in slant position , but this on is just beyond the 90 degree.
the basic one has very normal seat
put in the key and turn the ignition , there is minimal light glow with a check engine signal .
crank the engine and the 2 cylinder comes into life.
noise is minimal inside than what you hear outside.
hand search for ac knobs - where are they?
slot into first gear , gear is err like a toy , slot in without a feel and ther your car moves.
suffer from torque(low end) so , we need to give them , else it will switch off. kinda like a diesel laura?
the nano pulls great , may be due to its rear wheel drive?
you will miss the power steering , but that is not a issue.
the steering wheel is too small. for a non power steering like this i feel the steering must be big enough.
As people mention it - 4 wheel auto , it behaves the same ,
we can drive like a maniac in the city , quick gear change and steering handling experiance , one can turn nano into a head turner.
There is no need of free flow exhaust or muffler end to call up people , the engine noise itself will do that.
driving is good in this car , you are to be surprised for this price.
it has pretty good suspension , run over a rough road and you feel lowest jerks , better than a omni
the seats are uncomfortable for a very long trip , even a 1 hr trip continuously.
the doors open up wide and entry and exit is superb.
cost cutting ! but you can find relatively good things in this car . forget the cheap plastics all over.
the car has good amount of power , yeah it never fails to amuse you , i tried some drifiting and wow , it worked so well ,
was traveling at some 50 and approach a big bend , swiftly slot from 4 to 2 and full throttle - with in myself , what a nano can do , so i was in full throttle.
woah , it drifted , it drifted like any car and i was in much fun
And the top speed - how can you miss the top speed test?
the top speed was it crossed 105 mark and was quite hmm stable for its size and width . stable in the sense not like a lancer or ikon or city or hmm any car for that matter
it almost touched the 110 mark , though the pedal went further there was no improvement in speed and the check engine light blinks , warning us not to overspeed.
over took a MLA innova in the speed test and he in turn raced with me ! hehe racing with kids ! idiotic MLA
Hope the service and spare bills are also low in this case , the rear view mirror on right side broke and it was replace for just 110/- at the TATA A S S
Entry and exit is easy on all side and can fit 3 person in rear seat , if they are moderate in size .
and there is plenty of space in dashboard , but no glove box . the area behind glove box is just empty , the dash board is flexible , at least for us , we almost turn the glove box area
since the dash was so big , i think we can fix a small kid if you run out of space, refer the picture how we did.
Top end version has glove box , fog lights , ac etc .
the A pillar is massive and in the base version you will miss the plastic cladding in the A and B pillar. Though there are holes to fix them as after market , they are not required , as a matter of fact they add only to look , it may bother some dark colored car ,but not to the one in this test drive.
The fuel efficiency is about 22 to 25kmpl of petrol mostly in city run , you reach 4th gear quick - so is that called high way run?
the fuel gauge is digital!!
Nano basic version is worth for the money.
this is a car with one year on road and 2300 on odometer
