Congratulations, Tyagi . Drive safe and wishing you many more happy miles to come.
Looking forward to an initial ownership report with good photos.

I'm not sure if this is the right time to ask about body-roll and the stability of the ride. Some say, it is good and some say it is good compared to the earlier version. Can you please let me know ?

Body roll has come down by leaps and bounds and handling too has improved very significantly. It cannot be compared to crossovers like the Duster but this is one Scorpio which is completely different beast.

@khan_sultan , Request to update whether you used FATC (Fully Automatic Temperature Control) in heater mode during your trip. Would like to understand the working of heater in colder climate .

Default Mahindra Scorpio : Official Review

I couldn't find a better thread to get the audience of fellow Scorpio owners. As had been mentioned by me earlier, the clutch on my 2015 Scorpio seems to be tighter than normal. I went in expecting it to be an effort above my petrol car, but at 4000 Kms the clutch had a rough, grinding feel to it on a long trip.

I had the MASS check it on the scheduled first service, and apparently they put some kind of lube and told me that Mahindra had offered this official solution. Anyway, at 7272 kms now, the clutch hasn't gotten any worse but worryingly, hasn't gotten any better.

If someone can offer their experience and expertise on the following problems, it will be of great help;

a. The clutch in general feels an effort. In fact, people who have followed my comments and threads would know, I ended up buying an automatic - one reason being an aching knee due to the clutch on the Scorpio.

b. Initially, the clutch behaves normally, however if one pushes the engine a little and tries to shift at 2500/3000, the clutch become perceptibly hard.

c. After a longish drive, can be certain the clutch becomes a grinding irritant.

Hope to address these problems in January, when I will send it for servicing. Either the car goes to its doctor at MASS, or I have to go to mine for my knee. (Hey! Wait a minute. I just started my third decade) :(

The grinding could be from the releaser bearing or worse from irregular wear or defective clutch plate/pressure plate.

My observation is whenever the engine room is washed with some water splashing on the clutch bell, the clutch shudders. Which means there is an orifice through water or moisture is making its way in. If you have driven in an inundated road the releaser bearing could have got damaged as the grease would have become an emulsion or the plates would have shuddered causing uneven wearing.

One more observation is that the counter weight on the propeller shaft although is a blessing to reign in the vibration and lag between the engine and differential play, there is still a vibration that starts between 95 and 105 KMPH and this resonates throughout the body.

During my first service the rear drums were recalled and changed as I had particularly complained that the vibrations that were unbearable from 80KMPH upwards. After that change the vibrations remain only at the above mention speeds and my suspicion is on the counter weight.

Hi

Ask the ASS to replace the release bearing of the clutch.
Also ask them to remove the clutch dust cover and clean it throughly.

This should solve the hard clutch issue.

Spot on, gmalik! This problem needs to be highlighted as much as possible in forums like T-BHP and all other related fora. I have often come across write-ups where the apparently condescending/indifferent attitude of dealers/mfrs. towards potential customers is mentioned in a passing way.

The thing is that unless a concerted effort - read noise! - is made in the relevant media which can touch that tender spot in the mfrs. epidermis, we shall continue being at the recieving end of this attitude.

Your tweets to the M&M ivory tower at least resulted in a prompt response from the dealer in question & I hope you follow up till you get a proper TD of the Scorpio automatic!

Took delivery of a new Scorpio S10 4WD black in November end. Just came back from a freezing Bhutan trip with my family on Christmas day. The car just felt awesome keeping in mind my previous car to be a Duster 110PS. Further there were no starting problems at subzero temperatures, -6C to be precise.

Dear himadrimondal,

Great!
Are we going to see a new thread on this - in the near future?
I shall look forward to it.

Hi himadrimondal, that is a news. Well, first of all many congratulations on taking the delivery of new Scorpio S10 4WD black. I guess you wanted to thoroughly enjoy your Black Beast at least for a month before breaking this news. But, if I may ask, why the change in loyalties, from a soft roader Duster to a true ladder on frame SUV?

How much had your Duster run? Did you sell it off? If yes, then what price. Hope you don't mind me asking too many questions

Hello Sir, no idea if a new thread is going to come up. Lets see what cooks in the mean time.

Its true that I have declared the news a bit late on Tbhp though quiet a number of members know about it. Infact SS Traveller, a distinguished bhp had a big hand in the delivery of the Scorpio.
Yes the loyalties have changed. The Duster was not inspiring me confidence on steep inclines, few places where I do take my family sometimes. Moreover except long family trips, the Duster was sitting idle as my Thar was all over me. Hence thought of letting the 2WD Duster go and may be bring in the AWD Duster. Walking into the shabby Renault Central in a posh locality in Kolkata, checked out the AWD. The sales man offered me an exchange price of 5.5L for the Duster. That was the deal breaker. I mean just 5.5L ? I probably did not take more care of my wife than I did for the Duster. Not a single scratch, not a single dent at 39k plus on the odo. Even with a depreciation of 1L a year I should get atleast 8L.
Walked out of the showroom with my wife and went straight to see the Scorpio. Loved the new design since its launch but somehow did not give room for the affection to brew. The moment my wife saw it, she was floored. The entire package of S10 was very tempting. Even the presence of the vehicle wrt the Duster is overwhelming. Coming back to the exchange, Mahindra guys offered me 7L straight. I moved down to 7.5 but was finally settled at 7.2L. Test drive was not required as I had already done that much before all this drama. Hence the Scorpio 4WD.

Took delivery of my S4+ white scorpio yesterday. The dealer only had this or a W8 AWD XUV in stock. Went for the Scorpio in the end and got 50k discount as I didn't have a car to exchange. One thing I noticed while taking delivery was there is no engine guard at the bottom of the vehicle. As I live in Manali and willbe driving mostly here, I would like to have an engine guard installed. Any ideas or recommendations?
