Hi Joshy.
Maruti is a market proven car and still got the value. Only issue is it is not sold/registered in metros and selected cities since it not compliant to the latest BIS level. And really interested for a new one, wait and see any new variant is coming (there are re market roomers on an upcoming version).
About NANO: It is really good. It got lot of space, up right sitting, road clearance, visibility, mileage, low maintenance and a lot. If you go for LX variant you will get power windows, and AC at 2.25l (in Bangalore - remember the highest registration charges/tax in India). I bet you will never get and AC M800 on the same rate. (Referring to AC, you would have lived in Antarctica to keep the cooling level to HI in a NANO - it is that real chilling inside). I took a drive with my friend to Chennai from Bangalore (400 km approx with short breaks for tea/snacks) and it was a cool drive giving a mileage of 20-21 with 4 adults inside.
Regarding space: there is a lot. You can store a lot on the dash board, keep a huge back pack in front - below the dash ( cannot dream in alto/M800). I never felt the back seat is hotter ever due to a rear engine.
Referring fire incidents. It is not only nano caught fire (Wagaon-Rs, Altos, M800s, Santros, Audi and the latest - a 108 Force ambulance too). Even after did some wiring for a melody horn in my 2004 alto, I got a similar experience while driving. Since I was aware of the circuit, I got to know the trouble as soon as the burning smell came in and disconnected it.
An incorrect wiring done for the gadgets like lamps/horns can set any car on fire.
CAUTION: DONOT MAKE ANY CHANGE IN ANY WIRING IN NANO OR ANY OTHER CAR WITHOUT PROPER INSULATION OR USE OR RELAYS/CUT OFFS. NEVER NEVER CUT ANY CURCUIT AND TAP/TAPE IT FOR POWER. IT WILL END UP IN A DISASTER
My suggestion: go for a nano and enjoy driving at a less cost, escape from the traffic easily.
Last comment: You said, you will be using the car once in a month. Then better go for a new one since you end up in more maintenance than usage cost for a second hand (occasionally, it may not start when you need the car) but driving around 10 kms per week will be good to keep you r battery healthy or else disconnect after use till the next drive so that it could be drained in a span of 2 weeks of idle time.

The GenX Nano is not limited to superficial updates only. It gets a new boot lid which makes the rear luggage space easily accessible and importantly, it features an automatic gearbox. This perhaps makes it a strong micro buy on four wheels. True? We reve...

It is a very impressive street car but then there has been a constant feedback against the lack of power steering. The company therefore decided to bring in a Twist and launched the Nano Twist XT at Rs. 2.36 Lakhs ex-showroom Delhi. The Twist is the fi...

Increase in population, crowded streets, traffic chaos and never decreasing fuel rates. These are some of the issues, which we are plagued with. The big solution to this is something small. Something that can give the already stressed public a breather. T...
