Excellent reviw mate. Nice reading. Even I have been using my Scorpio 2.6 CRDe SLX for last 4 years covering 1.49 Lakh kms. Did lots of off-roading and High-speed masti always taking it for granted. But one thing is sure. No vehicle can replace Scorpio. Scorpio is a Scorpio. A Wild Horse..

my oldie is now shod with Yokohama geolander A/T-S!

seems like an overkill for such a old workhorse but anyways i like the tyres. steering feel seems to have improved compared to the old MRFs.

Hey nice review bro!!! Nice to see the scorpio is such a reliable vehicle and that too no problems after crossing 1.8lakh kms!! This reminds me of our TATA sierra in which we clocked 1.5lakh kms . We live in chennai and have travelled to places like karnataka andhra kerela and even orissa in sierra!!! Quite a reliable vehicle!! But after that it started showing problems gradually in suspensions and other stuff but still the engine is in top quality without even a decarb!! My dad gave it to his friend and it is still being used by him!!

That is a nice set of tyres Raj, This change was much needed for a car which has clocked 1.8+ Lakh Kilometers on the odo!
What was the last time you changed them?

Drive Safe!

My oldie has been suffering all the abuse very well even now.

the only problems i have right now is that the engine is too noisy now & there is some noise from the timing belt pulley (the chain drive in my model was replaced with a belt drive in later models). the pickup has reduced to a great extent. also, some squeaking noise from the rear door. apart from that, no issues as such. the yokohamas are handling rough stuff pretty well.

when i went to the mahindra's A.S.S to sort the noise & pickup issues, they said they will service the fuel pump & TRY! no guarantee that it will be solved. still, i think the car deserves a good service now.
