Hi SS- Traveler, I read your entire ownership experience, it was very detailed and good to diagnose Scorpio some how. My query to you is I have experienced similar kind of issue for my AC, wherein I heard a hissing sound from the AC vent and its not cooling any more. It doesn't feel that the AC is started when it was pushed. What could be the problem and shall I take my car to same shop as I live in South Delhi or any other place you can recomend.

Scorpio LX 2012- ODO 27500 KMS.

Sure, you can take it to the same AC shop (Cooldays at Lajpat Nagar, listed in the directory section). There has obviously been a gas leak, but he would be the best person to determine where the leak is.

Update:

Hawk-On-Fours® (H-4®) with a tail - Scorpio mHawk 4WD-150000.jpg

This came up on 9 January 2017 at Kolkata, and H-4® continues to run trouble-free, touch wood.

On this 3700-km run (including city running in Kolkata and a diversion to Shantiniketan), the H-4® performed like it hasn't for a long time - thanks to the availability of Reliance diesel all along the NH2 (now called NH19 / AH1). The engine runs smoother, accelerates much better, and FE has improved a bit - at one time I calculated >13.5 kmpl, but am yet to calculate the overall FE. In addition, the last two oil changes have been with Unocal76 CH4 grade oil, which I suspect has also contributed to the feel-good factor.

And the NGT wants this car dead and scrapped in another 2 years and 9 months.

I borrowed a relative's 2006 Scorpio 2.6 (Pre-M-Hawk) during a recent short trip in December. Had seen this one in the family for a long time, but got to drive it for the first time. The moment I turned the key I noticed the ODO which was at 1,99,670 Km.

This silent mile muncher was as good as any current car as far as the drive train is concerned. Stable idle, responsive throttle, sure shifting gears, nice steering feel, I was quite impressed by the condition the truck was in. Have never driven any Mahindra vehicle before this, so a bit of change in perception also happened. It was fun climbing in and out and sitting in the wide cabin which made it feel like a truck.

I now understand what makes Scorpio owners love their cars.

Thanks for the appreciation of Scorpios - one of the most successful SUVs in the Indian market.

Mine has just crossed 160,000 km on 5th December 2018, which is roughly 10,000 km of running in the last two years.

It's been our companion on innumerable roadtrips, mostly recorded in the Travelogues section, and even now it is ready for any new journey at a moment's notice. Some really memorable ones are:

https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/trave...-ranakpur.html (Hawk-On-Fours® (H-4®) Roadtrip: Kumbhalgarh & Ranakpur)
and of course, numerous trips to Kolkata: https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/trave...ll-detail.html (Delhi-Kolkata by Road | NH2 (now called NH19) in full detail)

However, sadly, the time has come for me to let go of the vehicle, and I have been looking for a new home for H-4®. Anyone interested in the car is welcome to ping me, and I'd rather it goes to someone who would appreciate it as well as I do, and would put it to the best use possible for such a reliable vehicle - even if that someone is at another end of the country. H-4® can and will be driven to be delivered to its new home, as we have done for our beloved Swift in October last year (Call of Kamakhya: Our emotional 2000 km Delhi-Guwahati Swift run).
