    Too bad, if it were here in the West we'd just buy another one! They are cheap enough!

    Hmm... a $4000 car with a design fault. I can't imagine why.

    How could you have gotten something so simple wrong? $4K for a car with a sub 1 liter motor, a manual transmission, and NOTHING ELSE. Something tells me they wouldnt do well at all in America, mainly because such a simple car can have such a bad flaw when theres barely any electronics in it. We already had something like that. We called it the Ford Pinto, but it wasnt the elecs, it was the gas tank.

    Too bad for Tata.

    This car is a roving piece of junk.
    obviously cheaply built & sold.

    I rather ride a bicycle or take public transportation!


    !!!!!
    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!

    Um, guys? The same exact issue was a recurrent problem on my US-made, $24,000 Saturn LS2 V6.

    I don't think it is a car to be bought. It is not good. I have had a ride in it.

    I think tata nano is good and bad

    Good Think : it's very cheap price so more number of persons enjoy luxury and safely.

    Bad Thinking : it's very small and not good to a big family.

    Re: little hot smoke for the Tata Nano

    Hi all

    See I don't think so any other car can stand in front of Tata Nano 2012 because Tata Motors has planned to bring out the most awaited-Tata Nano diesel. And people will not have to wait much for this super hatch. The car maker will most probably display it or might even launch it in the upcoming Auto Expo, 2012. Recently, the all new 2012 Tata Nano was launched in India which much frolic and now the new diesel car is sure to turn heads.

    This is possible because it is being said that the new car will deliver a fantastic 32 kmpl mileage. Tata Nano diesel would be the first car to pump out such a mileage figure. Tata Motors has been actively working with Bosch Diesel Systems to develop an 800cc two-cylinder diesel engine for the last couple of years. This engine is supposed to churn out 35 Bhp of power and 110 Nm of torque in the small car.The Tata Nano diesel price is expected to creep up to Rs 2 lakh– Rs 3 lakh.
