Mahindra Scorpio CRDE 2007 - Problems 'n' Problems
This is my first post in Team-BHP, have been reading all the threads for more than a year now. Decided to become a member and got lucky on the third attempt. Though I have driven a lot of cars/SUVs in and outside India, my knowledge is limited when compared to most of the members here.
I have a Mahindra Scorpio LX CRDE 2.6, September 2007 Model. Though it’s one of the best vehicle in India, I have faced lot of problems from day 3 of purchase. My Scorpio has run 29500 KM and is due for 30000 service. All the service has been done at A.S.S, Bangalore. Though never faced any problem while interacting with A.S.S Mechanics, but I don’t think they have enough knowledge to fix the problem at first attempt. Their ready answer to all problems is “will replace with the new spare part under warranty”, which is not a reasonable solution in all cases.
Here goes the list of resolved problems (major ones faced)
Problems for which I really need the answer –

what a horrible list of troubles! poor guy I feel bad to read the post itself!
suggest you PM Mr Behram Dhabhar on this Forum and request his expert advice on this.
Also, it may be a good idea to contact the Mahindra Regional Office and speak to the Senior Engineer here in Bangalore who is in charge of Customer Service and explain the entire history to him. I am very sure they will look after you because they are pretty responsive to the consumers.
Unfortunately I dont have the Senior Engineer's number but do try and establish contact via India Garage on St. Marks Road - they are the oldest dealer of M&M here and are well respected by the Mahindra regional office here.

Though many of the problems listed above have been resolved, there is still a bit of vibration which I am not happy about. Though Mahindra Technicians say this is common which every scorpio has but at different speed and RPMs. Scorpio Owners/Gurus please add on this..
Did contact Mahindra AO and Mr.Pillai from Mumbai dropped in on Monday and suggested to change the EGR and flash the ECU (load some new code). After which much of the vibration has reduced and the engine is running like new. But I am sure the vibration will return as this is what has being happening for the last 8 months.
List of things which has been changed in the last three months -
1. Clutch Assembly (new type, not sure what that means)
2. Prop Shaft
3. New Bridgestone tyres
4. New Wheel Discs
5. Front Brake Set
8. Ball Joint
List is going on & on, but I thing for sure its almost a new vehicle with all this replacements
Will definetly PM Mr. Behram Dhabhar. Mean while have seen you Scorpio copuple of time on Hosur Road and followed it once till Silk Board. Where do you work.. e city?
