The 2015 SsangYong Rexton has been unveiled in South Korea. Features include a newly designed radiator grille that seems to have been inspired by the SsangYong Chairman saloon, new alloy wheels and projector headlamps with day time running LEDs.

This looks even worse than the current plain jane Rexton, Mahindra SsangYong need to seriously work on redesigning it to look like a proper SUV if they want to sell it in India at the price they currently ask.

Have clocked 36k on the odo in the Rexy now. Not much happened since my earlier posts, till about a couple of months back. The car made multiple visits to the workshop due to rat menace. Fortunately, the damage was not much and wiring was repaired in 3-4 places.

Then had a strange issue last month. After the 2nd anniversary spa treat at 3M, went to fuel her up. After re-fueling, it wont start. All sorts of ideas like water in the sensor, bad quality diesel etc. came to my mind. Finally, the technicians arrived after about 1 hour or so, cranked the engine and it started. On checking the ECU, returned some problem with the cam sensor (located at the left front of the engine).

The starting problem appears in case of frequent start-stops. Starting after longer gaps, there is no issue. Hence the technician was able to start as I hadn't attempted starting after my first 30 mins of failed attempts.

So the car went to Rhey road workshop at NBS after a few days where after detailed diagnostics and ruling out probable causes for this problem, the cam sensor was replaced. This is a critical engine part, apparently, and being the first such case, the replacement procedure under warranty was long and tedious.

Anyways, haven't faced the problem since.

Interesting, this bit about the cam sensor! The Safari Dicor 3.0 had this gremlin, I remember it happening two or three times during my ownership, once when I was holidaying at Corbett!

I thought it was a typical Tata QC issue, surprised to see the Rexton having the same problem!

Dear Parrys

Good writeup. I am late to the party - sorry!!

I have a small question - what do you think about the resale value of (say) RX7?

I am being offered a 2013 model of RX7 at about 13,50,000 INR. The ODO is around 50,000 km (I think). I have yet to see and TD the car.
What do you think is a 'real' value of that?

Thanking you in anticipation,

Girish Mahajan

Mahindra Rexton recalled to rectify faulty rear driveshaft.
The recall of the Rexton SUV from the stable of M&M's South Korean arm is being done to check possibility of any loss of torque in the rear driveshaft.
