23519 units of Mahindra Scorpio to be re-called due to defective pressure valve
Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, the country's biggest utility vehicle maker, will recall 23,519 units of Scorpio Ex variant for potential faulty pressure regulating valves, the company said on Tuesday. The affected vehicles were manufactured between May 2012 and November 2013. "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.
M&M will identify the affected vehicles and get them examined by its engineers. The defective part will be replaced free of cost immediately, the statement said. This is the second recall of Scorpio in less than a year. The company had earlier recalled 985 units of the same Ex variant manufactured 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.
Last year on March 8, M&M had recalled 24,695 units of its premium sports utility vehicle, SUV 500, to replace fluid hose and front power window units of vehicles manufactured in 2011 and 2012. Following the voluntary recall code implemented in July 2012 by the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM), the apex body of Indian automotive industry, auto manufacturers have been recalling vehicles for potential defects.
