Should I risk the 500 bucks? Not a big amount - but will it create issues with Mahindra? The manual is totally silent on this issue.

I feel you should wait. I had read on this forum itself that both Xuv500 and Scorpio touchscreen systems will be upgradable to Android Auto. XUV500 upgrade was announced today. Scorpio should get announced soon too.

I have spoken to dealerships and to Mahindra directly also but no one has any idea regarding this.

I don't know who is releasing these press releases for Mahindra when their own customer care and Regional Sales Managers don't have the slightest clue.

Hi Roy

Eager to learn about the recall. Please do keep us posted as it is a really worrying thing. Not sure any one else has received this recall?

Kind Regards...Vikas

Has anyone else been affected by this recall?
A full chassis replacement, as a recall action, sounds scary, when I contemplate that I may have been driving around with a cracked chassis all along!!!
Please update on the chassis recall. Its scary to know that chassis could crack or rust so early in a vehicle. Please let us know on the details, it would help many of us. Thanks.

Mahindra has switched to the transmission maker ASIN for the next generation of Autoboxes for the XUV and subsequently Scorpio also.

I think in the long run, spares and resale for this model will take a hit, so unless you are in a tearing hurry, I think it is better to wait.

Some people on this forum were fooled by the dealer and they think that the automatic box in Scorpio is sourced from Bosch. Bosch doesn't not make transmissions and has never been a vendor/supplier of transmissions.
Looks like my premonition is coming true. Good move by Mahindra and buyers can now have peace of mind.

Practically, it is impossible that the same gearbox is picked up and deployed. XUV is a transaxle FWD while the Scorpio has a longitudinal RWD. I assume by stating that Scorpio to get XUV 500 box, it is only the make. Hoping they club this with the 140 hp 320 nm which is rumoured to come. An additional point would be the old autobox would not be able to handle the additional bump in the power and torque of the Scorpio. I assume the manual transmission would be also reworked to a 6 speed box.

If it is the entire thing, I would love an auto AWD on the Scorpio

It is definitely not the same box, as you said. But probably ASIN aslo makes longitudinally mounted boxes also. From a pricing and support perspective, best to have the same vendor rather than deal with two vendors for autoboxes.

Hi Friends, I own a 2WD S10 and recently started observing issues with my TPMS system. Some how it shows lesser pressure (2-3 points less) whenever I compare it with my recently bought TEKTON 5941 Digital Tire Gauge. I procured this from Amazon global store.

A few months back I had a tyre puncture. Whether it may have relationship with resetting of TPMS? Though I got it resetted at authorized Mahindra workshop.

Would like to hear from other members, what is their experience with Mahindra factory fitted TPMS.

Thanks

You are comparing two gauges against each other and unless you have a standard calibrated instrument as a benchmark, it isn't possible to point out the wrong one.

Secondly, the new gen TPMS is free of bugs and works fine without issues most of the time. You can have the TPMS reset once again to double check things or do it yourself. Here is the DIY video which should also be in your truck's ICE.

Thanks for your response N.Devdath. So far not been able to find a standard calibrated instrument. Tekton has great reviews on sellers portal (amazon US) and therefore I trusted it to be an accurate device. I think I'll have to do device another trick to check reliability of TPMS and Tekton one. Till then need to be cautious with pressure levels.
