The beast in black is very busy taking us to various trips in utmost comfort. Already covered more than 1000 km in total. In return, I make sure that the beast is very well taken care of.

The following were done:
  • DIY-No more noise from these storage areas and looks neat too
  • 3M Anti-rust underbody coating

Did Palakkad -Alappuzha-Palakkad today. Was driving at around 75-80 km/hour speed most of the time and an amazing FE of 14km/L returned [tankful to tankful method]. The vehicle has been rock solid, smooth and silent. Such a level of refinement was felt only when the vehicle was rolled out of the showroom in July, 2009.

A great job done at ITL,Motors/Trissur during the last service and their attention to details towards perfection is commendable indeed.

Shall update on the consistency of FE in few days time

Did Palakkad -Rajakkad [near Munnar] road trip today. The roads beyond Neriyamangalm is in bad state and worst until Ellakkal near Rajakkad. Filled the tank at Adimali. Drove mostly in the vicinity of 80km/Hr and this time the FE of 13.66 km/L returned with 100% AC all the time. Once again excellent figures considering the pathetic roads and Hill range.

Planning a Velankanni trip tomorrow. Planning an early morning start and hope the Bodimettu -Theni stretch is fine as the stretch was not open to traffic, few months ago due to the road widening work.

Update: Completed 70,000km:

Mahindra Scorpio SLE (M-Hawk) - 7 years and 1,18,000 km! EDIT: Totaled!-dsc_0479.jpg

Have gone past the 70,000 km mark and is in the 5th year of exhilarating ownership . The journey has been very eventful and am enjoying every bit of owning this beast in black.

Did a Rajakkad- Velankanni -Rajakkad trip [ around 900km] in one day, a couple of days back. This time I had the luxury to push the Hawk to 120km/Hr half of the time and the FE returned was 12.88 km/L with AC on always.

No issues, and No rattles whatsoever. Amazing NVH levels, even while cruising at 120-125km/Hr, except for the minimal noise from Yokohama Geos.

The Driving force
Mahindra Scorpio SLE (M-Hawk) - 7 years and 1,18,000 km! EDIT: Totaled!-dsc_0548.jpg
  • Now the ODO reading stands very close to 72000 km.
  • Except for a punture, I am glad to say that there hasn't been any single issue be it a simple squeak or a rattle.
  • Max FE returned: 14.00 km/L
  • Min FE returned : 11.80 km/L

The last trip via Udumalpettu was fun and at multiple times I got a bit adventurous with loads of fun and went off the narrow roads/tarmac in order to overtake a vehicle or let another from opposite to cross without having to slow down.

In my absence, the Hawk wouldn't have much work to do for another 4 months or so. Looking forward to some serious and funfilled road trips during monsoons. In between, if anything comes up shall update here.

Update:

Suddenly there is an issue since this Sunday.
  • both the remotes don't unlock the doors
  • neither there is the "unlock sign" on the display behind the steering wheel
The remotes were taken to nearby A.S.S who checked them to be fine.
Since the "unlock sign" is too not on, will it be that the Car Battery is dead?

Please advise !

P.S: Even in my absence, the engine gets fired on a regular basis, not more than a few minutes though.

  • Battery was down, blame it on the lack of exercise for the beast !
  • Opened manually, got a spare battery and cranked the engine. In no time, the beast woke up with the usual roar.
  • Took it for a spin for half an hour or so. Beast seems to be happy for time being but I am sure should be cursing me for and furious at being caged.

The excitement to get on to the Hawk never dies down, even after 5 years of ownership. I just can’t believe that my Hawk is getting 5 year old next month, it never showed any signs of fatigue either. Inching towards the 75k km mark. Though out of warranty period, will still get all the works/services done at A.S.Ss.

Thinking of getting the 75k km service in advance in the coming couple of weeks. Thinking of calling my trustworthy A.S.S@Trissur for a pick up –drop service for a detailed pre-monsoon check-up + 75k km service.

In absence, Hawk did get some much needed exercise for about 20 days as my Bro had come home last month. As per him, the vehicle felt as good as new except for some headlamp glitches. Both the Low bulbs/beams had their own minds and had to depend on the fog lamps with occasional high beams at nights. Need to get that addressed as well.

Decided to get the 75k service done at A.S.S/ Palakkad, which is just about 20km from home. The Scorp was picked up at about 8.00 am and dropped back home at around 7.00pm.
  • Faulty Rear wiper motor, front windshield washer motor- got them replaced
  • Filter cartridge + foam air cleaner changed
  • A faulty “follow me home” Relay -replaced and corrected the low beam issue
  • Maximile engine oil change
  • Detailed interior vacuuming and cleaning [Once a year exercise costing about Rs.1850, could have been avoided though ].
Total damage : Rs.6850

Will update here the quality of work, when I get my hand on it next week.
BTW, we were not charged for the "pick-up & drop".

M35, Did you have your front and back suspensions changed? I thought I did not see that in your repair history.

Mostly replaced the rubber parts like Stab.bar bushes. Also one of the front shock, as I remember

  • “Scorp” is too busy these days. Covered nearly 1500km in about two weeks. Got the entire headlight wiring changed and replaced both front and rear wiper blades.
  • Consistently returning a FE of 12.5 kmpL with 100% AC.
  • Absolutely no issues at all and I am posting this from Bangalore on my way to Mumbai.
