IMO a 5ft tall person would not have any problem with visibility

saw a nano last evening with 5 grown ups at the rear seat. three were the size of sumo wrestlers. the door also could not be shut properly.

if the owner complaints about some problem in the car to Tata Motors, he should be be given a spanking.

Isn't recommended pressure 26? Overfilling it may help FE but will make your ride more bumpy!

Belated Congrats on the Nano.

Do keep updating the thread with your comments as you go along owning this beauty.

Thanks to you, now I know, I could actually own a Nano, when I want to own one, even without booking it, surpassing many others waiting in the queue. Thanks a lot.

That's a good mileage but nano is expected to get better than that.

Mileage in city traffic is highly subjective & not quite comparable. My Nano gave 20 kmpl on a 1450 Km drive from Baroda to Bangalore, driven at < 90 Kmph, & AC used intermittently. In Bangalore's traffic, it still gives between 15 to 17 Kmpl, AC running always.

its given 14.5 kmpl again, giving it for first service next week

someone dented the right rear door last night while the car was parked (a couple of small dents & scratch)

minor issues will be addressed to the service center (mentioned in the posts earlier)
