All Tata Nanos to be delivered to the awaiting customers will again undergo a final check especially for any faulty switches. The company will conduct pre-emptive audit check on both delivered as well as yet-to-be delivered cars as a precautionary measure, said a Tata Motors spokesperson.
Tata Motors has so far delivered 7500 Nano cars in different cities of India. Ashok Vichare was the first proud owner of Nano that was delivered to him by the Tata Motors Chairman, Ratan Tata himself. So far no one from the company has contacted Mr. Vichare for checking his model.
Three cases of Tata Nano catching fires have been reported so far in Ahmedabad, Lucknow and Delhi. Customers from Ahmedabad and Lucknow have already contacted the dealers and brought the cars to the showrooms. The other customer from Delhi is yet to give the car for repairs and has instead lodged a complaint with the police citing manufacturing defect as the reason for the mishap.
According to the company spokesperson, they were not actual cases of Nano catching fires but only smoke due to short circuit around the switch area and the melting of the plastic. Moreover, the company is not ‘recalling’ the cars as the problem is not generic and pre-emptive checks may be carried out for the cars that have been delivered.
