  5. i owned scorpio mhwak last month.what a powerful vehicle.when i ride it i feel flying.it also gives mileage of 15-16,which one is a good one compared to older version.the new features also satisfied me a lot.i also glad to say that i am the first owner of the scorpio mHWAK in kerala.

  6. Dear Concerned , I am really confused on the two engine options being offerred . The old CRDE mill is proven, is a bit heavy than the new engine . I am concerned about the perfomance after about 60,000 to 70,000 kms , if poeple remember the CRDI accents started developing noises at this stage . According to me im scared about the chain drive on this new engine as ford ikons also had the same and trouble after 70k kms. I maybe wrong but i want some technical insight into this kindly mail me at vichinsehgal@yahoo.com Regards, vichin sehgal

  7. Few months back I have decided to upgrade myself from my old lancer to an SUV. With this intention I spend most of my valuable time surfing in internet and enquiring about available vehicles in the market. One day I got the news about the new launch of Mahindra Scorpio M Hawk. Whenever I enquired about Scorpio, many of my friends who owned Scorpios had discouraged me. They pointed me about the bouncy and scary drive of Scorpios. Even a few people, whom I knew personally, have died in Scorpio accidents. But I noticed one of the reviews about M hawk that it has a tweaked suspension and also ABS. It also specified that it’s the best Scorpio yet. I got interested with the new salient features of the vehicle and I waited for the vehicle to be launched in Kerala. After waiting for a few days I purchased a brand new Scorpio M Hawk Vlx on 11-2-08 from TVS Motors Kottayam. Now I would come straight away into my issues. From the day one onwards I am totally disappointed and unsatisfied about the vehicles performance in terms of mileage, suspension and passengers comfort. As per my understanding an SUV is a kind of vehicle which gives superior riding and driving comfort both in good roads as well as off roads. But I had an opposite experience. My vehicle has run around 8000 Km till date. The particular vehicle is trembling and wobbling like any thing. Even the gear lever is vibrating and many times I found it very hard to operate. Literally I feel that whenever I drove the vehicle it resembled a truck or a bullock cart. We cannot call it as a family car at all as we are troubled by severe neck and back pain. I also have put maximum effort from my end to rectify the issues like rattling, wobbling and bouncing. Even I have placed a 130 kg weighed iron bar at the rear side to prevent wobbling and bouncing. I have taken the vehicle to the TVS Work shop thrice with these issues. They noticed that the seats were also trembling and one of the door of the brand new vehicle had rattling noises. They have loosened the multilink and adjusted it. Also they have changed the gear liver assembly to reduce the hardness .Still there was no use. I have droved the vehicle in the company specified tyre pressures. (32 PSI Front & Rear). I have also checked it by lowering the air pressure one by one till 27 PSI. Even I tried nitrogen instead of air for three days. But there was no use. The situation was the same. Keeping all these in mind I have done a comparative study by driving almost all utility vehicles available like Tata Safari Dicor 2.2 VTT, Toyota Innova, Qualis, Chevrolet Tavera, Sumo Grande, Old Scorpio Turbo, Bolero., Sumo Victa etc. As a result of this I would like to declare that undoubtedly the Scorpio M hawk is the worst in terms of comfort and easy drive To conclude I would suggest M&M to market Scorpio M Hawk as a goods carriage vehicle rather than selling the vehicle as a passenger vehicle at a huge price that too with totally useless things like cruise control , driver side anti pinch window, incorrect tyre tonics etc. Anoop R, 9895808353

  8. Hi friends !!! I bought a mahindra scorpio m hawk in august 2009. it has run 16500 km till date.Until now i m very satisfied with the vehicle. On a highway with Non-AC it gives an average of about 12 to 15km per litre. This average totally depends on the way u drive. To get the best average drive at a constant speed of about 75, avoid sudden accelerations, do minimum gear changes. As far as comfort is concerned i would give 7 on 10.No doubt the engine is very powerful but the scorpio runs smoothly only on plain roads, on highways.If u have to drive it more on bad roads do not opt for scorpio.If u r looking for power and acceleration just go for it.I own a scorpio whose seating arrangement is 2,2,3 from forward to back known as captain seat.first i thought there will be a luggage problem.I must say that i can carry 7 people and their luggages along without using the luggage stand on top.Initially u might have headache after driving it for 200km due to wobbling etc. but slowly u will get used to it and u wont feel that anymore.I think it is much better than a safari.
