Not really. 7-10k is what I usually spend every 30k kms as well. In fact, if you want save on some unnecessary expenditure, you could very well skip the 5K kms service that M&M recommends. I have never gotten it done and have had zero issues.

And after the service I had replaced the windshield due to a crack. Guess what the service guys forgot to fit the wipers back. I was splashing water from pump and no wipers seen.
Then it was lying in back seat and had to fit it myself. Really irresponsible service

Car : Scorpio Vlx, mHawk, 2008, 1,05,xxx kms

Issue : A small amount of smoke emitted from the engine oil dip-stick outlet.

After a short drive within the city, I casually checked the engine oil level. It's about half way mark on the dip stick. Done close to 6K kms since the previous oil change.

However, noticed a small amount of smoke (white) emitted through the outlet. Is this normal?

Checked if the smoke still comes up after a while, about 2 hours later, but there was no smoke. Drove around 20kms and checked, there was smoke. So, once the engine has run for a while, its puffing up.

This is bad and careless too. Why don't you try India Garage at Chennai? I have heard this place is really good when compared to the others. A few XUV owners too are satisfied from their service.

Not very normal unless this was a one off incident. Keep a strict eye on the oil levels and monitor even slight changes at the dipstick.

As i did a short while ago with the new Mahindra service in Gurgaon, one has to negotiate. Mahindra are opening up new service centres to cope with a huge number of vehicles sold. In Gurgaon alone the no. of service has gone up to three from one in the last two months.

As they scamble for business initially a smart customer can negotiate their terms very well with them. Today they relented and agreed to me bringing in an engine oil of my choice me bringing in filters and they charging only labour and that too with a 10 % discount.

I'm not sure if this rubber will be available. Is it necessary to take any action here with regards to the rubber/slow switch?

Thankyou
Im not sure of your model, but I have Xylo E6 and pic-2 is referred as Clutch Switch. sorry to cross-post, but our experiences mentioned on this thread. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...ml#post2968485 (Mahindra Xylo E8 (ABS):-Spacious, Feature-Packed, 8-Seater, Head-Turner Beast is Here)

Thanks for the reply Pranav. I Will be visiting the service centre this week and I will get the switch checked.

From your xylo's post, do you mean that the RPM was going low when you release the clutch? or is it when you press the clutch?

Even in my case the RPM goes low when I release the clutch(to around 500 etc but engine does not die) without any accelerator input. For normal driving I do not face any problem, but on inclines while releasing in 2nd gear it struggles and shudders at that low rpm.

due to the faulty contact points in this switch, the RPM goes very low (feels like engine dying) and again on a bit tap of clutch pedal comes to life back. in straight drive, this isnt felt as no clutch usage on speed. but whenever the clutch is used during bumps or traffic, you can feel rpm needle going down to 500 and come back to normal asap.

a minor replacement of this part will solve your worries.

Could you please advice as to whether these charges are justified.

Edit: The car has done 1,20,000 kms , if that helps in any way

Hi InControl,

The charges mentioned and the components estimated to be replaced seem too high.

Can your friend bring his vehicle to Anant Cars at Bannerghatta road for a second opinion? I will align the folks I know there to take a close look at it.

Please PM me your contact number so that I can call you directly.

Guys a small query, I have been regularly getting my vehicle serviced from VVC motors which is an authorized Mahindra outlet. I have noticed a discrepancy in the billing and I am not sure if it is right or wrong but just wanted to clarify.

In the bill the description of the part and then quantity and then the tax of 14.5% and the rate with tax is printed and at the end when we sum it up, to the total a VAT of 14.5% is charged again. Is this genuine or the dealer trying to fleece the customers.

Another query was regarding the 50 K service where the hubs are greased. The major service price has been increased from 2700 to 3150. So ideally the hub greasing is supposed to be completed under this right (If I am not wrong). I was charged extra 1350 for hub greasing front two and rear hub greasing one for 900 which totalled to 2250 which did not make any sense. I may be wrong but just wanted to check if this has happened with anyone.

From 1100D's post found that his Clutch master cylinder was replaced under warranty but I had to shell out 1816.59 even though my vehicle was under the extended warranty.

Request the gurus to clarify my doubt. Thanks in advance.

Need help guys. A friend who gone out of city for 2 months left his Scorpio with me to look after. When I walked out today morning, I saw that the car's (if I may call it a car!) front left tire is flat. Now, dont laugh at me but I cant seem to find where the Jack is stowed in a Scorpio. I searched around all possible nooks and corners but it seems elusive. Pls guide.

The jack is usually under the front passenger seat and the long rod to operate it is under the back seat, which needs to be folded to gain access to the rod. There is a short strap, in the middle, that has to be pulled to release the seat for folding.
Is that clear enough?
This is for the only Scorpio that I have, which is a 2006 model.
It could be a different layout in the later models.
