    some people are very lucky :)

    btw, nano is available on credit cards now

    Buy a Tata Nano, with a swipe of a credit card - The Economic Times

    : In order to revive falling sales, Tata MotorsBSE -1.07 % has come out with a new scheme for its Manza sedan buyers, who will get back 60 per cent of the purchase value if they re-sell the car to the company after three years.

    What do they mean by purchase value? Is it OTR or Ex-showroom price? This makes a lot of difference in my opinion.

    Whatever it is, manufacturers want to clear their pending inventory and have started some agressive marketing. Skoda and vw started, now tata also! Tata has slashed the prices of it cars as well.

    Good time for people looking out to buy a car.

    No doubt punto is tank build,but does this justifies with the suspension set-up and underbody mechanics with respect to the indian roads ? :D
    once a noise starts underbody its really hard to fix.is it common for the other cars as well ?

    These kinds of issues exist with most cars. The actual problem is because of the half-baked technicians who lack the competency and interest to isolate the issue and fix it. Most of them dont know how to repair anything, they only know to replace. Those who know the actual work may not be "qualified technicians" and rarely work for any service center.

    Its 60 % of the EX showroom price,less VAT, less DISCOUNT(if any).

    ALSO, the fine print(as patchy boy said it) is that it is applicable on CLUB CLASS VERSION AND DIESEL VARIANTS ONLY:mad:

    Dont you think customers will get a better price if they sell it outside? Vista and Manza are not that bad cars these days. As of now they both have better resale value than FIATs.

    Just read an article which says - VW is developing a sub-four-metre Vento for the Indian market. The sub-four-metre Vento will compete with the Honda Amaze and Maruti Swift Dzire and VW is hoping that the compact Vento will bring additional sales. Launch date not before 2014.
