What's Wrong With This Picture: You Get What You Pay For Edition
Pictures are supposed to be worth a thousand words, but this one is good for at least two whole life lessons. First: you get what you pay for. If you buy the world’s cheapest car, as insurance agent Satish Sawant did, it might just burst into flames on the drive home from the dealership. Second: Google Adsense has no sense of irony.
Indianautosblog notes that the Nano has already had a reputation for firestarting, and that (amazingly) a motorcyclist had to stop Mr Sawant to inform him that his car was on fire. Is the Nano’s interior so cosseting that engine-room conflagrations don’t catch the driver’s attention? Strangely this isn’t even the strangest part of the story: because Mr Sawant can’t drive, he was actually being chauffeured home in his new Nano when the thing went up in flames.
