They Switched to fixed flanges on thar's manufactured between August and December 2013; but again went back to Auto locking hubs in Jan 2014.

Manual hubs are working well.

I would like to mention here that I visited Autolock Hub manufacturer and happen to see autolock hub in detail - its mechanism and components. I am convinced that these autolock hubs are very good. But literacy of Mahindra ASC may end up in declaring good auto lock hub as DAMAGED. I just saved INR 40000

And this credit goes to one gentlemen called Gajanan Chitale.

So now I have redundancy for locking hubs.

Manual hubs are working well. Faced some heating issue on day 1 of fitting, but later vanished.
I would like to note that Lamda service is excellent. The service guy Mr. Azeez took pain to visit local Mahindra service centre to answer my questions.

Old thread but I picked up an Oct 13 made Thar with fixed flange and it used to make vibration and noise at over 80-90kms. A friend offered me used Lambda in exchange and I installed it about 2 years ago. Best decision, yes one needs to manually lock the hub when you go Offroad, but that 1 minute job is worth it. Working flawless the Lambda manual hub locks. No noise or unpredictable slips.

I understand the auto lock hub needs servicing every 10k kms or so and the amount of grease is critical. Too less or too much they just start giving you headaches.
