Why does my car have suffocating fuel smell in the morning?
By: Anees cp on 2017-24-08
Smelling fuel from your car is a very serious issue. There are many potential causes for it, the common ones are ? engine could be running rich (bad O2 sensor, happens more just upon startup). Some issue with the fuel system (tank leak, line leak etc.). Another thing to consider as well is that the carbon canister, a part associated with your emissions system on the vehicle, could be clogged or is overwhelmed with too much fuel, thus may be backing up fuel which in turn is leaking and causing the smell. If you are in the habit of "topping off" your tank (that is, filling up that last extra bit after the fuel pump switches off automatically) this is bound to happen. I advise you to take your car to your local Nissan service center for proper diagnosis and solution without any delay.

How is the Datsun Redi-GO in real terms and what is the warranty period for the car? Is it as good as its reputed rival and does Datsun offer an efficient service for it? Also, there have been complaints about engine noise. Is that true?

I have booked a Datsun Redi-GO S and found it to be pretty comfortable. However, the engine was very noisy but the executive said that it hasn't been tuned as it's a new demo car etc. Is the Datsun Redi-GO engine noisy or was it a one off case which I faced during my test drive?

I paid an advance of Rs. 10,000 for the Datsun Redi-Go on 22nd June, 2016 at Pinnacle Kollan, Kerala and was told that my car will be delivered by 2nd of July. However, this did not happen and I was asked to pay the full amount and only after that my car would be delivered. I made the full payment on 5th of July but I still have not got any news about my Datsun Redi-Go S variant. I have contacted Datsun on their toll free number which is +91-9447787301 and spoken to the Datsun official whose name is Mr. Renjith. My booking is done on the name B -Sugathan. Please suggest a way forward.
