well cant get the mahindra classic anymore,
that leaves us with the gypsy and the scorpio being the jeeps that can be purchased with good vfm,
what i wanna know is that can the scorpio withstand offroad situations for a number of years ..
plus if we were to choose between the gypsy and mahindra and the criterion were the place where these jeeps will be used dont have experienced mechanics or garages ..
which jeep would be the best

If you really intend to off-road, even the Scorpio in 4x4 mode wont do. Its bulk will weigh it down and will pose some serious limitations while off-roading. I also dont think that its rigid enough.

From whats on sale right now, just go ahead and pick up a Gypsy. Awesome off-roader.
