Default Need Feedback From Scorpio AT Owners

Hi BHpians,
I'm seriously evaluating the Scorpio AT, I thought of getting some help from this forum , but found only two threads where there was some information ( the 500km TD and the other about taking the AT to Ladak). I request all of you who own/owned or test driven a Scorpio AT to help with their inputs and comments. Just to give you a background so that you could advice better

I live in Bangalore and drive through some of most congested traffic conditions, the car would be used 80% of the time in city; we go on interstate trips almost once every 3 months and this would be a 700km to 1200 km run on the highways. The family comprises of 2 adults and 2 kids with parents joining us occasionally (to accomodate 6 with ease therefore helps).

Need a first hand experience on the practicality of this vehicle, the pros and cons, the reliability, the FE, maintenance cost, the safety, stability as well as comfort (both driving and passenger). I have heard a lot in the negative on the Scorpio's safety and stability, but I wish to know the truth first hand. And is auto transmission you get in Scorpio a very basic and unrefined version ?

My budget is around 14L had I had almost homed in for an Altis when I got to have short drive of the Scorpio AT, it was interesting, but I heard a lot in the negative soon after and hence this mail. Help
