Driven ? Why dont you ask Mahindra to deliver it to you in a truck ? They do deliver new scorpios in trucks till the dealer the customer has booked the vehicle from.

Pramod, I wonder if this is in any way connected to your experience -

Probably not. But I wonder why this sudden decision & what is the relevance of September?

I am not sure, if its true at all, but if this is based on my vehicle incident then definitely they must be changing the hose pipe joint design, that is the weakest link, the design need to change and instead of the plastic clip it need to "nut-bolt" based so it can be tightened properly!!!

Suman, the production was stopped/ temporarily halted well before the issue with pramod's scorpio cropped up.

I have posted some info on the above mentioned thread. Have a look.

@Pramod: Glad the issues with your AT are solved. Hope they are solved once and for all.

Hehe, willy nilly, we are the guinea pigs for our very own home grown manufacturers!
The ones that matter LEAST to us are our own countrymen; the complete antithesis of the Japanese way of thinking!
The best product has always been reserved for the domestic market in Japan; the US gets the 'second' best!
The Japanese have always believed that THE most discerning customer is the 'local' customer!

+n to that

My vehicle is a living testimony of testing on the consumer theory. Reason of this attitude from manufacturer's end is becaus eof two thing "Jugaad" & "Chalta Hai "

If only Indians forgot about these two words, we would be a world beating nation

So it was hose clip I was suspecting this when you wrote about hose coming off , I wrote about this reliability issue on 2.2 VTT thread few days back. I got the PS fluid reservoir hose clips changed in my safari after a minor leak ,the clip with nut bolt just costs 7 rs each , Approximately there will be some 20 - 30 hose clips in whole engine bay so for under 200 Rs they could have made vehicle more reliable.

And this is not just mahindra ; atleast Tata and Maruti also just put the Turbo hose pipe clip with nut and bolt and others like PS reservoier and coolent hose are without the nut.


I wounder how much of savings these companies actually do with so called value engineering or cost reduction. May be a little thicker gauge wiring then absolutely minimal , better hose clips are small examples which can improve quality a lot in less then a QA engineers salary per year.

I dont think the issue faced by Pramod would have resulted in production stoppage for that long. It could be something else. Fixing a solution for hose pipe wont take that long.

I was browsing through few of the last year images of Leh and realized this year there was more snow every where and the weather this year same time was more rough, as both the tour 2009 and 2010 both were down of the same time frame, attached is one as a comparison at K-Top from similar location.

@ Pramod: Where's your car? Back with you or still sitting in Chandigarh? Or is it being driven down?

Still sitting in Chandigarh, it will be handed over to Mahindra Pune region from Mahindra Chandigarh region, as Nagpur fall in Pune region and a then Pune region will transport it back to Nagpur, may be Bharat Band yesterday might be the reason of not starting yet, I am hopeful for today. The last update I got was on Saturday, that from both Pune and Chandigarh region that handover will happen in Chandigarh and I will get the vehicle this week.
