23,519 units of the Mahindra Scorpio to be recalled in India

Snapshot: The recall stems from a potential faulty pressure valve detected in certain units of the Scorpio Ex variant.

Indian auto major Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd are understood to be in the process of recalling 23,519 units of the Scorpio SUV in India due to a potential faulty pressure valve. Only the ‘Ex’ variant of the Scorpio SUV that were built between May 2012 and November 2013 have been affected by the said recall. 

“This recall is limited only to the Scorpio Ex variant manufactured during the said period and does not affect any other Scorpio variants.” the company said in a statement. The owners of the affected vehicles will be contacted by the company, requesting them to make a trip to the Mahindra workshop, where the affected vehicle will be examined by engineers. The defective part will be replaced free of cost.

The aforementioned recall is the second such incident to have gotten underway in less than a year. The company had earlier recalled 985 units of the same Ex variant manufacturers between October and November 2013 for faulty pressure regulating valves. The latest recall also concerns the valve functioning that has been found inconsistent, some dealers said quoting a communication from the company.

Furthermore, Mahindra & Mahindra had also recalled 24,695 units of the hugely popular XUV 5OO in March 2013 to replace the fluid hose and the front power window units of vehicles manufactured between 2011 and 2012.
