@ jay: sorry buddy, i had typed the service intervals in the other thread in which you asked, but due to net problems, i was not able to post it. here is the service intervals:

in the first 5000 kms, they change engine oil, oil filter, transmission oil and differential oil.
thereafter, engine oil and oil filter is changed every 15,000 kms.
air filter, clutch fluid, transmission oil, brake fluid and coolant is changed every 40,000 kms.
fuel filter, differential oil is changed every 20,000 kms.
wheel bearings are lubricated every 50,000 kms.
fuel tank and strainer is cleaned every 80,000 kms.
HVAC filter is cleaned in every service.

The free service schedule is 5000 kms, 10000kms, 15000kms. I have yet to do my first service. Dadu thanks for your advice i wil wait for the first service and see the difference.

Can anyone tell me about rated tyre pressure for the Scorpio. I have 32 should i move to 30?

Are you sure differential oil change is every 20000kms?
I think it must be 1st 20000kms and longer intervals thereafter.
Thanks for the info.

mahindra asks you to maintain 32, so its better that way. manufacturers know the best. reducing it to 30 may increase ride comfort marginally but will also decrease FE, again marginally.

Hi Pschizo, Congrats on your new mHawk. It is an awesome car! Coming to your concerns
1 Vehicle roll/sway: Firstly this is expected out of an SUV, you might be relating it with your sedan. However, the earlier Scorps with leaf springs had more roll and pitch. With the multi link suspensions from Lotus it is much better now. mHawk also has further fine tuned rear and front suspension systems unlike its siblings. I go for 31psi(normal air) at a fuel station i visit regularly. my mHawk behaves good with 31! M&M mentions 32psi but that I understand is at cold temperature. I do not measure the cold tyre pressure and therefore decreased it to 31psi(to allow hot air expansion, equipment aberration etc).
2.The vehicle is a powerful one. It can ease itself upto 150kmph without any strain. So, it is surprising to note that your car is struggling. You should also not push a new car over the limits to let is adjust to provide us a happy long term service. I touched 155kmph max in my mHawk recently on one of the TBHP Drive meets. The mileage: 11kmpl in city, 14kmpl on highways-both with a/c on.My Car has done around 7000+km as of today.
3. The whistling noise: if this is kind of 'whoa' whistling sound coming from the engine with a/c on during idling or min RPM, please get it checked at the service outlet. This can/might be due to a faulty expansion valve with the a/c system. If any other sound, still good to get it checked, so that you can drive your beast in peace.
M&M service is good which was one of the main reasons for me to decide on my mHawk(I also have an Crde SLX-leaf springs one!!).

Have fun and safe motoring!!

@ getsurya: the "whoa" sound which you are saying is different from the whistling sound pschizo experiences i suppose. the whoa sound is due to the expansion valve and i present only in some cars, you can get it rectified by replacing the expansion valve as you said. i had faced this issue too!
but the whistling sound is found in all mhawks. you may have not noticed it as it is not that audible while driving.

I have experienced the whistle sound during high speed test drive ( Vehicle more then 140Kms + )

I have not found this in my car ( Have not crossed 2.5K RPM /100Kms )

M Hawk never struggles for speed . It in facts ask u to unleash this beast . Infact its very difficult to take care of this bull in mad Bangalore traffic .

Some body role is still there

Default Re: Scorpio MHawk performance

Hi Pschizo, Congrats on owning an mHawk.

I have a June 2011 mHawk which has done 6k kms and during my last trip to Goa, I had taken it to 160Kmph (3.2k rpm) with still some juice left. Mileage figures were: 130lts of diesel returned 1677kms with 95% AC.

Yes there is body roll but then since I come from the Bolero background, am very happy with it. Few people from Sedan back ground may not really like it though.

I maintain 32psi on all tires.
