. This is a discussion on Mahindra Scorpio VLX Mist Silver: 97,000 Kms & Counting within Ownership Reviews. Part of The Automotive Reviews category; Hi Mukesh and Team,
This is Kishore Damarla from Bangalore. I recently (02-01-2013) bought Mahindra Scorpio Vlx AirB. Please accept ...
Hey guys my Hawk went for a 50 K service today @ Chrome Motors Mysore Road.
It has clocked 50,500 kms as of today.
Nothing to complain, everything is working the way it should.
Here is a self explanatory breakup.
One incident the new SA had added Engine oil additive, which i politely refused.
So paid 6075/- but actual credit note of 436+ taxes will be waived off during next visit.
Actual Bill: 5639/-
Only pic of hawk after service. Can extract another 20K kms from the tyre, as per tyre analyst from Bridgestone.
He told me the tyres are well maintained, as usual tyre rotation was done at no extra cost, with free nitrogen topup

the more and more i read through Mahindra Product ownership reviews nowdays, the more i am convinced that M&M has really got Tata Motors beater products (UVs / SUVs)
UVs if at all Tata is still in reckoning, will all be lost in few years... phew
Tata Motors might soon become a Niche Passenger car company with some Taxi image low end products like Indica / Vista sisters and some niche UVs like Safari Storme
Anyway - M&M is beating TML hands down in every department..
PS - I have a wonderful and faithful Indica XETA from 6 yrs back..But it is a long period in todays automotive scenario, where new products and newer segments are getting created and challenged every month
Congrats on achieving the 50k landmark, the service cost look's very reasonable ,and what's up with the engine oil additives ?
Told the new SA to remove all the cosmetics.
I had told her clearly no additives and infact it was striked out in job card.
As I follow 10k interval oil change.
But that was added in the bill, which I politely refused.
Got 10% discount on labour and 5% on spares.
Yes wash was charged as the SA gives lame excuse of M&M not including it in the 75 point checkup camp.
Some how the condition of mud on hawk during Mangalore-Coorg-Bangalore trip recovered the washing charges.
But this time cleaning of glass was not tha great which otherwise with SA Kiran is good at such things.

Just one question why din't you go for engine decarbonisation?
Because engine is smooth and no smoke from the exhaust.
And it's not at all recommended in the manual.
As I follow I 10k kms oil change interval didn't go for those things.
Such things will be in need only when car reaches 1Lac kms and above till then based on usage pattern of my car I go for early engine oil change.
