I was supposed to go to service center and complete other formality for RTO registration, plus report few other issues that I have faced from 400kms that I have done till now, steering seems to be somewhat out of sync and tend to take the vehicle to right, I believe a complete check of alignment need to be done, plus the major one AIRBAG lights are ON and they still don't have a debugging/servicing tool! Will update with my feedback on the 400KM drive plus other experience once I get time to update, new year started with lots of work load.
Pramod


PS: There is a manual select gear called M, but I believe its more of holding the gear for high RPM, not yet tested for RPM limit in M mode, still running in for 1000KM

No, Scorpio AT does not have that option. I wish it did.

Congrats Buddy, and welcome to Scorpio owners Club!
You should be enjoying each ride, drive safe, wear seat belts even for short distances.
Take the pics of your Tyres too and post'em here.

Does AT model comes with Engine start stop, if yes, how is it working without a clutch?

pramods,
I am sorry to hear some of the problems listed - just wanted to check what option does an end user have to test whether the airbags actually work - new feature, alarm light on.... so what does one do?
cheers

There is a airbag light, which need to be OFF when its working, as of now its ON indicating there is a problem in airbag and its indicate airbag is not functioning. Service center has not yet received the instrumentation to check what went wrong with airbag, a listed they have 4 ECU's to check on my vehicle, Engine ECU, ABS ECU, Airbag ECU, Transmission ECU out that they already have others expect Airbag.
