Hey guys today had been to SKS Auto for few checkups, before long trip.

Btw left the vehicle at dealerships for a free checkup camp at A.S.S.

So Bangalore folks can go for free check up camp, which involves Battery, AC Checkup, engine oil , suspension etc...

Btw there is discount of 20% on service done at this time, as well as 5 % on spares.

The drive is from 19 Dec-23 Dec..

Don't know whether there is similar camp at other A.S.S.

The checkup is exclusively for Scorpio & Bolero customers.

Thanks for the information. Was the check-up / service satisfactory enough? This is advisable for all Scorpio owners in Bangalore (We already have a few in forum).

Drive Safe,

I will be getting my vehicle tomorrow.

The dealership is flooded with vehicles.

Btw i had other checkups which appointment was taken by Mahindra from Mumbai, will be discussing it tomorrow in my thread.

Where they insisted to go for 70 point check up too.[:)]

Also a authorised personnel form Bridgestone was measuring the tyre density and tread depth with an instrument.

He gave me the details of tyre as it was Bridgestone too still it can do 40,000-45,000 kms more, which is 35,580 kms on ODO as of now.

Good to know that the worst wear on my Hawk's tyre is still 42 % and he appraised me for driving style in 3 years, and also the tread depth i had in my hawk.

The respective tyre wear on all 4 tyres is :42 %, 33% 38% 20%(The spare tyre i had used when there was side wall damage of my Bridgestone D-689)
I also told him that i am going for Tyre rotation every 5000 kms.

Nothing much. They would probably do a free wash and polish.

Re: Mahindra Organizing Free 70 Point Check Up Camp

I had my 25,000 km service done two weeks back. But I am still going to attend this camp. Let me see what is their diagnosis.

Checked with SKS and IG. IG requires an appointment whereas SKS does not - just bring your vehicle.

Re: Mahindra Organizing Free 70 Point Check Up Camp

I attended the 75 point checkup at SKS BG, Bangalore on Feb 18, Saturday. I was told that camp would start at 9 am, but came @ 10 hoping that there would be a big queue. But to my astonishment, nothing started till 11 am !

This is what M&M had advertised in their pamphlet:

  • Exterior - 15 points
  • Interior - 25 points
  • Trial Test - 7 points
  • Engine Compartment - 16 points
  • Under Vehicle - 12 points
First, my vehicle got an exterior wash but no interior cleaning. Then they took the vehicle for a road test. I had the following issues:

  1. Hard clutch
  2. Vibrations inside/outside of the car
  3. Left ORVM assembly was vibrating a lot
  4. Check the headlamp focusing/leveling
  5. Check the health of all tyres
  6. Check the health of wiper blades
  7. Fix all the loose chrome kit parts
Except for #3, they fixed/checked everything. Ski racks and rear door were causing the vibrations. They were tightened. They also improved the clutch play. Then, they replaced the left ORVM under warranty but the new one was vibrating more than the old one [frustration]

Adding fuel to fire, they said that all refresh Scorpios had a problem with their left ORVM. I just blasted them and called up the CEO/GM of SKS BG. After that, they assured me that they would fix it during my next visit to ASS.

Don't know when Mahindra dealers will get their act right the first time. Everything works on escalation to seniors and customer care [evil]

Out of 75 points, they just checked the engine compartment and did not do anything on the remaining checks. For this, they took sweet 5 hours!

When asked, they said that's what they do as it was a free checkup. Also, they were running out of service folks as many of them did not turn up (Saturday) and they had too many vehicles to service (vehicles that had come for regular service were also present).

The entire camp was run in a disorganized and chaotic way. No priority, no first come first serve.

Whoever could get hold of the Service Manager, they could get their vehicle serviced. Adding to the woes, some local politicos came with their Scorpios and they were given preferential treatment.

Wow that's news to me.

My vehicle is due for its 40,000 kms service.

Will get an appointment fixed by tomorrow.

I could not visit Karnataka Agencies, as there was a travel plan to Murdeshwar.

Re: Mahindra Organizing Free 70 Point Check Up Camp

To Bangalore Scorpions,

How much does painting the entire front bumper including side fenders (wheel arches, if I am correct) cost (inclusive of labour charges) ?

Have you asked this @ SKS, IG, Sireesh or Chrome ?

I am planning to get this done in this service camp as there is 10% discount on labour charges. There are lots of scratches and paint has peeled off in many places in the front bumper.

SKS is quoting Rs.4000 (all inclusive). Is it ok ?

I need your answers asap as the service camp ends tomorrow - Feb 22

Note: Offer and discounts in this camp

Spares - 5%
Labour - 10%
Accessories - 10%
Wheel Balancing - 10%
Wheel Alignment - 20%
Maxicare Treatment - 10%
Maximile Oil - 5%
Maximile Filter - 5%
Battery - 5%

Re: Mahindra Organizing Free 70 Point Check Up Camp

I have never gone for painting in these 4 years of ownership.

During the recent trip in Kerala, a bus brushed my stationary hawk on the front guard.
But nothing happened, also while i had parked some one had brushed the right side door.

Will be looking for touch up.

Which part of bumper are you looking for touchup?
Or thinking to paint the whole bumper.

Repainting whole bumper costs 6446/-

Side wheel arch costs -591/-
