Mahindra Thar diesel recalled for faulty camshafts

A total of 1,577 units of the Thar diesel are affected by this issue.

Mahindra has issued a recall for the diesel variants of the Thar to replace faulty camshafts.

According to Mahindra, a machine-setting error at the supplier's plant is likely to have affected camshafts.

A total of 1,577 units of the Thar diesel are affected by this issue. The cars were manufactured between September 7 and December 25, 2020.

Mahindra will be notifying customers whose vehicles have been affected by this recall individually. The cars will be inspected and fixed free of cost.

The second generation Thar was launched in October last year. It is available with two engine options - a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder mStallion petrol that produces 150 BHP and 320 Nm and a 2.2-litre mHawk diesel that makes 130 BHP and 320 Nm. Both engines are available with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission.
