my enquiry pertained to my Scorpio which is going to reach the age of 2 in April 2010.

The vehicle came with a 2 year / 50K km (whichever is earlier) warranty when it was bought. At the time I didnt opt for the extended warranty because I didnt think of it at all.

Now that it is approaching the age of 2, I am planning to extend the vehicle warranty by another 2 years/ 50K kms - the cost to me will be 12999/- I am given to understand that the price of the extended warranty has been revised to 12999/- and in this new avatar does not include the clutch/ pressure plates/ facings etc but does include a host of other things including the turbocharger etc.

Possibly if one buys a new vehicle and takes the warranty immediately, they may charge only 9999/- but I do not know this as I havent asked the dealer.

It is good info and I will speak to the dealer about the same when I go to buy the warranty.

Whatever the cost, 9999 or 12999 - I believe it to be well worth it, since it gives one peace of mind for the next 2 years - an effective cost of about Rs 540 per month!

shankar, if you buy extended warranty with the purchase, it is 9999 - if you do so before the expiry period of original warranty it is 12999. This is what Mahindra Hyderabad has confirmed.

thats fine
i read the manifest of items covered under the warranty and find that it is indeed worth the price of 12999 given the peace of mind

yes this is absolutely normal

the yellow heater light will go off in a few seconds and then you start the vehicle - within a second or two the battery light and the oil pressure light will also go off.

but be careful to idle for 30 secs when you start and then move and again when you come to a stop just idle for 30 secs before shutting down.

this is especially if you've been driving fast-ish and the turbo has been boosting your progress.


cheers.

Hi Klassics45, any further updates on your M Hawk ? How is the performance and ride quality ?

Thanks a ton to Shankar Balan, for the above advice. When driving alone or with few passengers, I keep 50 kgs (old books ) in the rearmost area, above the spare tyre, and the rear portion has settled down much better.

I think Mahindra should permanently integrate a ballast weight at the rear, after all it's just the 50 kgs to be added, which does not make much difference to the overall load capacity, yet improves the ride

If you love SUVs and drive mostly in city with little highway needs then Mhawk RULES!! Before i bought, i read a review which stated that its like elephant which had Redbull... those lines keeps coming to my mind whenever i overtake. it has so much power that you have to just touch the accelerator pedal.

Ride quality, it is far better than the old one but still not something that you can write about. The coil springs makes the vehicle to swing left to right and curves, better slow down as much possible to avoid the body roll.

What i love the most is, its better maneuverability and being lighter than the old version. You will be the most relaxed person even in the middle of peak hours traffic.

Highways, if you keep it within 120 then it cruises peacefully and driving it is a pleasure. Anything more than that, yes, you can do but at the cost of being less relaxed.

Can you please post the OTR in Chennai for your vehicle and the FE figures if you might have already tracked them?

Congratulations on your new acquisition. And you are absolutely true that it becomes extremely difficult to drive during rainy season in the streets of Medavakkam and Velachery.

The fuel consumption of 11.5 to 12 kmpl is perfectly Ok for city use with occasional fifth gear drives.
