And some light on how the fuel-line got ruptured in the 2nd case. If they trace the cause or design-issue behind this rupture, it can be avoided in future.

Looks like TML is pulling out all stops to prove that the Nano is safe. They have planned 3 groups of Nanos to leave their Sanand (Gujarat) plant and tarverse 12,000 kms across the country. In this attempt they will pass through 40 cities and 20 states. This they call the 'Super Drive'. Link to the article on Zigwheels

One of the British car magazines drove a Nano nearly all the way from India to England. They covered about 10,000km. No problems reported.

May be a little OT here, but I am going ahead anyways

GM just issued a recall for about 1.5 million vehicles to fix/disable the heated washer-fluid system that causes fire. 5 vehicles caused fire, but no-one is injured.

Here is the link for a detailed read - G.M. Recalls 1.5 Million Vehicles - NYTimes.com

Luckily for the owner (tbhp-ian trrk's friend) it stopped at smoke and did not turn to fire. Wonder what explanation Tata will have for this smoke.

The mods won't/can't look at individual posts requesting for title-changes. You need to use the "Report Post" button and request the change.

Three Nanos out of thirty thousand (and counting as we speak) have caught fire. How can that be a norm?
Read the article in The Economist of a few months ago to understand how long Toyota took before realise that something was wrong with their accelerator pedal and how long to start scrambling to prevent a credibility disaster for them. I would prefer objectivity and marshalling of facts, to going overboard - in either direction.

The thread name should reflect that the number of nano that have caught fire is 2/3 in 30,000 and be constantly updated, the current one kind of implies that a nano catches fire every other day.
