Jacob A P say his Nano feels at home at any hill station he visits
I was realy impressed by the performance of my Tata Nano car during my recent visit at Munar Hills/ Top station/ Chinnakanal / Suryanellioon on 17th May 2010.It took only 4 hours to reach Munnar town from Trichur (157 KMs). The car with 5 people took all the gradients easly in 3rd gear. Some time I have to shift 2nd Gear at Hairpins.
My car is a non A/c and I have noticed that rain is not hiting me even the Window Glass is opened full. Thanks for the Car desgin. In other cars it is not possible to drive during rain with opened window.
In 1975 I visited Munnar& kodai with my Vauhall Velox (2275 CC) 6 cylinder car that was a good car for Hill stations.
I feel Nano car is just like Velox very easy to negotiate sharp curves & bends at Hill stations.
I also made trip to Nelliyampathy Hills only 75 Kms fro Thrichur a few months back with 5 adults. The car took all the way to top very easily without any overheating.
I am greatly impressed by the mileage I got. It is realy wonderful 28 KMS PER 1 LITRE OF PETROL. During my Munnar Trip I covered 520 Kms with 22 litre of petrol at an of average 24 KMS at a Hill Station.
Nano is a very good car to drive in City & also for long trips & Hill Stations. Some people made comments in Malayalam while I reached at Nelliyapathy Hills. They looked at My Nano & they are saying "Edae Nano Nelliyapathy Kaerida" (Hi Guys Nano has climbed Nelliyampathy Hills today!! My Nano being the first Nano Car to visit Nelliyampathy Hills & Seethargundu view point.
On Return from Nelliyapathy I lost the front wheel right hub Cap. I am not able to get the cap yet from Tata Dealer.
They say that they have ordered the cap. They say there is no problem without a hub cap.
