Tata Nano Recalled for Starter Issue
Tata claims that this is an “upgrade” and doesn’t consider the “recall” term appropriate, as the company claims the starter motor issue that generated it does not bring any safety problem. This affects all vehicles produced between 2009, when the car was launched and November 21 2011, when Tata introduced an upgraded version that features a new starter motor.
Tata said that the campaign already debuted in October and that it has replaced the starter motor in 50,000 Nanos until now.
"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," a company statement reads.
