Family trip to Mahabaleshwar
My Nano Story for this month of March 2012. DATE: 2nd March 2012 to 4th March 2012 MY CAR: TATA NANO 2012 LX model - MH 12 HN 3359 FROM: PUNE (MAHARASHTRA) TO MAHABALESHWAR (MAHARASHTRA) TOTAL DISTANCE: 260 kms TOTAL FUEL REFUELLED: 9 Ltrs . My wife, daughter and myself departed from my residence in Dhayari (Pune) at around 6 am and steadily cruising at 80 km/hr on Pune Bangalore Highway towards Wai Phata. From Wai Phata to Mahabaleshwar Ghat cruising at 60 km/hr and at the Ghat 40 km/hr reached Panchgani at 7.30 am. We visited few points in Panchagani till 9 am then towards Mahabaleshwar and reached our destination at 9.30 am. The driving experience was excellent and the car responded well. At a speed of 80 and little above it was sturdy. We enjoyed the trip. Thanks to Tata for such a wonderful car. At Mahabaleshwar, Nano used to attract attention of most people as they used to wonder about Nano. Myself and my family were quite amused with people’s reaction on seeing Nano at Mahabaleshwar. One Gentleman got off from his Honda “City” and asked where we came from and about our Nano experience. “JUST WONDERFUL” were my first words to him…. My family and me are quite HAPPY to be proud owners of Nano and thanks to Tata for making such wonderful car – economical for mileage, pocket friendly and an excellent car, ideal for a small family.
