I just got my nano 3 days back, gave me a mileage of about 18 in the 5 lts that it had from the showroom. City driving with AC.
Just wanted to know, is there any difference in the mileage after your first service appointment? And any other changes that you've noted?

Default not so low cost :(

Nano, is not at all low cost, The prices displayed are not Ex-Showroom, it is exclusing VAT (12.5%) etc, On Road cost of Nano LX in Bangalore is 2,13,xxx/-. With Insurance from ICICI Lombard.

BTW, I had a query, Does Nano LX have a power steering ? or any steering assist ? The Concorde guys showed the brake fluid container and said it is brake fluid-cum-power steering fluid!!!

Can we have a Nano Delivery Check list ? What we received ...

1. Jack under front passenger seat
2. Batter under driver seat
3. Jack rod-cum spanner for wheels
4. Tow rod with the jack rod.
5. triangle
6. 1 spare bulb
7. 1 medical pouch.

8. They kept on saying that the free servcie coupons were not there and after a while somehow found them in a file which was right in front of the person, got 3 free service coupons (which has the chassis # printed on it).

Scrates on door, which will be fixed in first service (got it written )
The delivery experience was nothing sort of departmental store shopping, no-body from Concorde even came out to the showroom during delivery. Some guy came and showed the details of the car and disappeared thats it.

no version of the nano has power steering/ steering assist. (not counting the europa, of course...)
the nano cost me around 2,02,xxx here too. The LX is not meant for those seeking a cheap, 1 lakh car!

Thanks PingleWood for the confirmation on powersteering.
Reg. the pricing, My point was more to highlight the fact that unlike anyother manufacturer, car price quote LX model is not 1.4Lacs Ex-Showroom, its a pre VAT price.

The TATA website has the updated EX-Showroom pricing for Nano which is VAT inclusive.

I too get a mileage between 14 -15.. Navi Mumbai city driving with AC on.
Even after the 1st servicing, its still the same. The TASS guys told me to stick to 60 kmph (very difficult, especially on palm beach rd.) and to use the AC on as low power & cool settings as possible.
When I booked the car last year, the general manager of Fortune Cars told me "average 20 ke upar dega" which I have not achieved even on highways (max was 18.5)

Not exactly in Mumbai but in Delhi i am getting around 13-14kmpl with AC on. This is very short of my expectation as I used to get around 18KMPL without AC.

BTW the performance of AC is just fantastic.

Great going Tata Nano. But the mileage figures are bit disappointing.

Congratulations!!. somehow the nano reminds me of the old mini, like an indian version of Mr. Bean would drive the nano. My favorite car. I wonder if you could fit nice big tyres and rims on it like you can do on the Smart.

Default Water Leakage Issue

went to lonavala twice in one week. mileage of around 21kmpl

but a big problem occurred last Saturday. returning from the suburbs and there was heavy rainfall (no floods) . i suddenly saw water under my feet. there was water under the battery too.. scary, came home, put it into the garage then realized the rear right door was not closed completely. Thought he water had come from there (but then no area above the floor was wet)

gave it to the service center and he confirmed today that there is a leakage and the car will be ready in two days.

will update soon

What's the issue? Where is the leakage coming from? Did they tell you?
