I just bought the Mobilio V i-VTEC for 9.22 Lakhs on road at Delhi. Only floor mats included as freebie; nothing else. And I did not opt for the extended warranty.

Congratulations @anupmathur: do you plan to fit reverse camera and upgrade the ICE. Do post pics. V is better than RS. No scraping the chin. Enjoy.

I do not plan to replace anything, in keeping with my belief to keep a vehicle in as near stock condition as possible.
I did change the tyres to Yokohama Earth 1s 195/65R15 to gain a slightly wider footprint and 6.5 mm higher stance.

Aye. The nearly ten year old Scorpio. I dare say I got a fair price for it - 3.8.

Nice price. but wasnt it 4x4? The mobilio isnt RWD either. How will it suffice for your himalayan runs then?

Yes, it was a 4X4.
Our Himalayan forays have become rare. Kids are grown up and one is in Ireland. Holidays accordingly take new shape.
The other important factor is age. We do not go for 'adventure' to the Himalayas any more. It's laid back holidays or driving holidays (in rental cars) in Ireland.

Sirjee, but the #1 thing I learned from your Scorpio 4x4 purchase was this - the 4x4 is not bought by folks like us for adventure - but to get out of an unexpected adventure - like unexpected slush or ice at a hotel in the himalayas!

Anyhow - wishing you miles of peaceful smiles with the Mobilio!

My 5 month old Mobilio RS already has problems.
Tyre pressure in one wheel always goes down. No obvious puncture.
Driver footmat is coming to pieces.
Rear single seat is not flipping forwards smoothly.
Hopefully will be sorted out in the next service.

It could be a small bead leak. Ask for a change of the rim.
It could also be a faulty tyre bead, in which case the tyre needs to be replaced.

Hi guys,
My Grandpa bought a brand new Mobilio S-iVTEC without telling me. I came home from tution yesterday and see this thing in front of my house. My grandpa comes outside and he's like "I bought a new car." and "How do you like it?". It was a miracle that my jaw didn't drop on the floor. He told me his old esteem was at some service yard some time ago. I didn't give much thought about that. The Esteem was always at our house and now I guess this will be too. Little did I know he sold it 2 days ago. I was indignant. He knew how much I love cars and he knows about Team BHP. I would have told him to get the Ertiga ZXI without batting an eyelid. When I told him that, he's like "This is a Honda.". He bought it as a surprise for me(since he knows I'm addicted to team bhp). To be honest, I've started to fall in love with the car. Now, I have some questions that I hope you guys will answer.

1. Does this car have a security system?
2. The rear seat Cannot be flipped down. There is no lever too. Need serious help on this.
3. Where can I find the VIN number in the car?

Guess what was the first thing I did to the car?

The petrol S variant does not have the security system. And no airbags, no ABS, EBD.
The VIN sticker is pasted on the rear right window glass on the new car. The VIN is also listed on the registration card as Ch. No.
The rear seats (2nd row and the 3rd row) fold and tumble. The levers are at the base of the backrests (on the outer edges), one on each end.

Here's a very interesting piece of news:

Quote:
Honda has revealed an updated version of the Mobilio MPV in Indonesia. The new MPV remains unchanged on the exterior while on the inside, it gets a new dashboard and more features across variants.

The Brio-derived dashboard from the current Mobilio is replaced with an all-new dashboard borrowed from the upcoming Honda BR-V.
This is what Mobilio should have had from DAY 1. Also, I just wish that Honda eliminate those ugly front seats with no adjustable head rests.

My additional wishes:
1. CVT
2. ACC and other features

The post above your post says exactly that

I personally like those Honda seats compared to the thick lumpy ones found in other vehicles. They are lighter, thinner, firm yet comfortable. Infact, these seats are similar to Recaro seats found in more expensive sports cars. In smaller cars the adjustable head rest barely serves the purpose because if you extend them up they will be very close to the ceiling.

Finally my membership got approved.

Will we see the updated Mobilio anytime soon? Or will Honda scrap the Mobilio for the BR-V?
