Mahindra is recalling 23,519 units of the Scorpio, manufactured between May 2012 and November 2013 for working on a possible faulty pressure regulating valve. This recall though has been limited only to the base EX variant.
Mahindra has updated information about this on their official website, where customers can key in their vehicle serial number and their contact details to find out whether their Scorpio EX has been affected by this problem. They say that certain Scorpio EX variants may have a faulty pressure regulating valve which may interfere with a body sheet metal panel, which in turn may lead to damage to the regulating valve.
The affected customers have to contact the nearest authorized Mahindra dealer to get an appointment to get their Scorpios tested. If any fault is discovered, dealership will perform the necessary actions and it may require some time.
The necessary changes will be done by the dealer obviously at no extra charge. However, Mahindra should be proactive and contact the affected customers themselves because a lot of Scorpio EX owners may live in semi-urban or rural areas where the know-how is lesser.
Interestingly, this is the second time Mahindra is recalling the Scorpio EX. The last time, in December 2013, the company had recalled a little less than a 1000 units for amending exactly the same problem. Other variants of Scorpio are not affected by this recall.
