Recall roundup: Tata Nano image

The Indian based automaker Tata Motors has recently announced a recall which will affect 115.000 units of the Nano model.

Being the cheapest car in the world usually comes with some sacrifices but despite that, the Tata Nano didn’t appear to have any problems until now. According to the carmaker, 115.000 units of the Tata Nano have been affected by this recall and its owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to fix the starter motor. Tata Motor said that the recall campaign has debuted back in October and since then, 50.000 Nano models have a new starter motor. The recall will affect the Nano units made between 2009 and November 21, 2011, when Tata introduced an upgraded version of the model fitted with a new starter motor.

“Owners of all old Nanos were informed about the exercise, and about 50.000 cars have already been done. There are about 65.000 owners who are yet to visit their dealerships and the company is in continuous contact with them”, as the car manufacturer says in a statement.

The 2012 Tata Nano Standard comes with a choice of three exterior colors, Rouge Red, Aqua Blue and Serene White, along with tubeless tires, tip-tap driver side mirror, clear headlamps, booster assisted brakes and front suspension with anti-roll bar. The mid-level CX has a choice of six colors, along with air-conditioning with heating (optional), booster-assisted brakes, parcel shelf, half wheel covers and tip-tap mirrors on driver and passenger side, while the top of the line LX comes with provision for 12V socket, cup holder in the front console, front power windows, door handles, central locking, body colored bumpers, fog lamps, rear spoiler, full wheel covers, electronic trip meter, booster assisted brakes and tip-tap mirrors.
