Which "fluid hose" are they talking about?

Request one of the new owners to check this link and post more details about the recall.
http://www.mahindrascorpio.com/service-action/

From my XUV experience, Mahindras have a tendency to "underplay" faulty parts which are part of a recall and their possible impact.

Example - XUV early batches. There were multiple incidents reported of power-steering failure. Just imagine, complete failure of power-steering at highway speeds means inability to steer the vehicle and could lead to a major accident. The issues were traced back to a "high pressure hose in power steering assembly". The particular part carries pressurized power-steering fluid and was prone to leakage eventually resulting into complete power-steering failure. The recall innocently said "a fluid hose" and IIRC did not bother to mention that it can lead to complete power-steering failure and serious accidents.

More details here:

It appears that my Scorpio S10 4WD is part of the recall. Once availability of the part is determined, will get it replaced.

The ASC says, its the brake pipe/hose. If leakage or tolerance not to level found, then a replacement, else 2 brackets would be added. But the website shows otherwise.

Oops, I didn't comprehend the message properly. It is for a fluid hose and not necessarily has to do something with fuel lines.

This time around, it has to do something with brake hose and or its component/s.
