Guys, I have a Tata Nano car and it is a low budget car but good at fuel efficiency. It is easy to drive and it is a funniest vehicle on the road. The cost is also an affordable one with lot of exciting and thrilling features. Even a middle class people can be able to purchase the car easily because of its low cost which is really a good thing. Thanks to Tata Motors and still expect more from them..
I have a Tata Nano Lx car which is quite amazing. I like the car for its cool external graphic lines. Hats off to Tata Engineers who offered a wonderful car. Its cabin is very spacious even five people can take their seat in a comfortable manner. I felt the turning radius is good at Tata Nano. It is very excellent even in heavy city traffic areas and its HVAC is very effective along with the good pickup. But the engine provides an irritating noise which is one of the drawback. Otherwise it is best suited for going to office.
I thought Tata Nano would be apt for both city and highway roads. So that, I purchased the car which looks like a mini car with good interior space. The performance of the car is really appreciable but sometimes I heard some unwanted noise which is bad. Service network is not so satisfactory. My car has battery problem and gave it to the dealer. Eventhough I got the car after rectifying the problem, it happened again and again. The Tata staffs are not giving any proper response to the customers and it should be changed. Because of this problem, I have wasted both money and time which would not return.
