Default Re: Tata Nano AMT (Automatic) : Official Review

What is the waiting time period for the Nano AMT now ? Once you give the deposit - how long does it take for delivery ? I am looking at the XTA version.

Also, did anyone buy the Nano amt in Hyderabad - and from which Tata dealer ?

The on road price for the XTA version seems to be around Rs.3.5 lakh in Hyderabad including the AMC. Thanks.

Not sure about delivery time now, for me it had taken one month when the car was launched.

I bought XTA from Malik Motors, Himayat nagar as it was near Office. Experience was OKish. No complaints. I got car within 3 hours of going there on the scheduled day.

Go for the Nano XTA then, but before that have her drive the car, if possible, along the various routes she would normally take. This will enable her take a fair decision.

For ladies, this is the best option especially the usage you have mentioned above. I have found the small footprint of the Nano to be a boon when going for grocery shopping / dropping & picking the kids from their various activities. Car can be parked in tight spaces and the small turning radius ensures I dont get into tight spot.

Of late, even my Husband tries to sneak off in the Nano instead of his usual drive just for the ease of parking and the ground clearance.

Thanks Rysk for the reply. Yeah there are not too many choices in Hyderabad - it's either Malik or Concorde. 1 month time is pretty good .

Do you also plan to take it to Malik for warranty issues & general service/ maintenance ? They have probably the biggest Tata workshop in Hyderabad at their Tolichowki location.

Hi Guys,

Wish you a very happy Sunday.

Over the last two weeks, I have experienced twice a very upsetting behaviour by my Nano AMT.

Thiruvananthapuram is full of uphill and downhill stretches on roads. Twice as I was trying to reverse the car on an incline, the vehicle started flashing the "clutch overheated and burning" warning in my cluster. This was quite unnerving. The incline was very very gentle and I was hardly pressing the pedal beyond halfway. Since the Nano has very poor power while reversing the vehicle would not budge below this level.

I ignored the warning first time as it went out after a few seconds. The second time, it remained on for close to 30 minutes.

I approached focuz motors Thiruvananthapuram and the works manager informed me that he has changed clutch assembly in two Nano AMTs in the past week.

This is really worrying.

Has anyone else faced this problem on this forum?!!!

If this is happening it is absolutely not fair. I hope the company provides a long term solution - maybe a more wear-resistant clutch plate to start with.
The official review had mentioned the uncertainty about the durability of the clutch and I really hope that something is done about this before it is too late. One year is nothing for a car and that too for an urban runabout.
The AMT is probably the last chance for the Nano to survive and if they manage to ruin this chance, the car will be a part of history.
Wishing you the best in getting this resolved.

Are you feeling any judder when starting off on a plain road? If there is no problem with the vehicle pick up then this is not related to the clutch. The warning light comes on when the AMT unit gets overheated or there is insufficient oil in the AMT unit. Do you use the handbrake when starting of on an incline. How many kilometers has your car done?

There is no such judder. As far as I know, the clutch is not a part of the AMT unit.
My car is new, just about 1200km and less than 45 days old.

Please go through the manual on how to drive an AMT on steep gradients. Most people tend to use this car as a conventional automatic. Whenever you face any sort of incline immediately shift into manual mode to prevent the gearbox from shifting in the middle of the climb. Also use the handbrake to prevent the car from rolling back and don't depend on the engine power to hold the car. Follow these two points religiously then you should not have any problems with the clutch wearing prematurely. Posting some screen shots from the manual.

I get this warning at times. But not always. But whenever it comes on, i believe it is justified. Its either in heavy stop go traffic or when my wife practices reversing!
When the warning comes on, the creep functionality is disabled and the car will not move forward on releasing the brake. It will move only on pressing the accelerator.

My car is about a year old now and about 10000 km run in Bangalore city. I see no problem with the clutch or the AMT unit as such even though this light comes up intermittently. Suggest you to do due diligence and get it examined from TASS for the AMT oil levels once, get the code cleared and then just ignore the warning after that if you think it is working correctly.

Do not worry about replacing clutch. Even if you end up doing that, it is a minor work and it will be perfectly done!

Hello Blueinkbottle, what did the dealer say, has this been resolved now. What steps were taken to resolve?

Hello everyone.

I took delievery of Nano XTA from Pratham Motors BTM on 4th April and I am enjoying the practicality offered by the Nano.
However, my experience has been marred by the underwhelming experience in dealing with the sales department.
1) I had asked for B2B insurance and had offered to pay the difference over the insurance which was being given for free. This was not done.
2) Inspite of repeated follow up, I have still not received the body cover which was part of the agreement.
3) Even after a month I still have not received details about the AMC which I had opted for. They are claiming that I should have received an email with the details but I haven't. Is there a paper document that I should receive? If so when should I get? I could not ask the sales guy on the delivery day as he was on leave and the delivery was handled by someone else.

Here are a few pictures of my Nano.

Congrats on your nano! Mine is the same colour too and its my second one. I had the same question about AMC booklet when I took delivery of mine. I got a separate booklet detailing the terms & conditions when I got my first nano. Now they told me that there is no separate booklet and it is included in the blue welcome kit folder that you would have received with your car. One leaf in this book is for the AMC. If you opt for AMC, the dealer will fill up this page and stamp it. And AMC can be used anywhere and not only at the particular dealer. You could confirm if this is true.

Thank you. I will check the booklet tonight. The sales team or an email from Tata could at least inform the customer of the same.
