Hi Raj,

How is the sound quality of these horns compared to the stock horns.

I am planning to replace mine too

hi upreti,
it sounds just terrific, infact ideal for an SUV. its a 5A horn.
the horn is loud enough, though not over loud (like truck horns).
it sounds like those of the octavia or old optra or old merc.

Yes, mine were the same, they sound like earstwhile HM Contessa's horn!
Actually water can easily enter this horn, while washing or going through water.
Because of this problem, the mechanic had installed them facing downwards in my car.

Hi Raj, in reply to your post in other thread(pics. of Scorpio), look I just pin pointed the problem to you, these horns are not advisable for SUV's as water is the least of the obstacles they have to deal with.

yes bhp1, you are absolutely right. infact i was aware of this problem as i have these fitted onto my non-crde scorpio as well. and its running fine since 2 years. all i did was point the opening of the horn downwards to keep away water.
since i am getting a free replacement, let me try fitting the horns with the mouth downwards, still if it gives me problem, i will dump it!

thanks.

a call centre sumo decided to rear end my scorpio one fine day. with my car stationary & brakes applied, the impact i thought was very high. but luckily the damage is nil, only a slight scratch on the bumper because of the sumo's black front guard.

meanwhile, a visit to the A.S.S. for changing the security code has helped and the code was changed in 2 minutes, yes... 2 minutes! another complaint was a slight squeaking noise sometimes from the driver's door on rough roads, this has been solved by tightening the bolt. the time of vehicle entry on the job card was 9.40 am and time of exit was 9.45 am! this is because though i reached the A.S.S. by 9.25, the vehicle was taken for a trial run to check the door sound.

this time, i was very impressed with the mahindra service though. they were very courteous... so courteous that i was made to drink coffee twice!

meanwhile, i enquired about the extended warranty that will increase the warranty to 4 years & 1 lakh kms. they charge Rs. 10,000 for that. i am confused whether i should opt for it or its not needed?

Raj, why make the same post in multiple thread? The same post is there in owners thread also! This way, with just one content you will have double post counts!

Raj, you should go for the extended warranty option before your Scorp runs out of the original warranty. Mine has completed 2 yeras last month and i have opted for the extended option by paying Rs.9999/- I think its worth it.

Hyundai charges Rs.9035/ for 1yr extended warranty on Verna CRDI. So, i think 10k for 2 years is definately worth every rupee.

Although Scorp is a trouble free truck, but with all this latest tech under the hood, parts are expensive. So, its always better to be covered.

Hi Scorpman,

Can we go for the extended warrenty anytime before the original warrenty expires ? Or it has got some time period within which it has to be bought.

I believe there is some KM warning also attached, not sure how much but its there.
On a different note what is the reserve fuel capacity of Scorpio, I believe the complete tank is 64 ltrs, so what is there when the first warning sound and how much can we run after that safely, plus max kms till it runs dry, I have been filling with first warning and the liters are different every time.

i drove about 15 kms after hearing the warning the 3rd time, before fuelling up the tank. when i topped up the tank, i was suprised to note that 12 litres of fuel remaining in the tank. add two litres to it as i has driven 15 kms as i said. so there must be around 10-15 litres still present.
