Tata Motors To Check All Nanos – Tata Nano Recall Is Not A Recall
Tata Motors is set to inspect all 33,000 Nano cars sold so far in order to be sure that there are no problems after, in certain circumstances the cars burst into flames, says AFP. The inspections will be free of charge, and the company insists that this is not a recall and it adds that the internal investigation showed that Tata Nano is a safe car. Tata Nano is the world’s cheapest car and costs between $2,500 and $4,500 in India.
Tata Motors started an internal investigation after, in several cases, Nano cars simply burst into flames on the streets. So, in Mumbai, in March a Tata Nano ignited only 90 minutes after it was delivered to its buyer and it was discovered the presence of an unknown object in the exhaust system.
In April, another car burst into flames on a street in Gujarat village, western India, after problems with the exhaust system. The company says that Nano has a robust design and is as safe as possible, adding that we are not talking here about a recall campaign, but about a check up meant to cool down its customers.
Tata Motors sold about 33,000 Nanos since the last year’s summer until now, a very small number compared to the demand for the small car. The car is available just in India, in three versions, with prices between $2,500 and $4,500.
