Country’s major player in utility vehicle segment, Mahindra & Mahindra has decided to recall nearly twenty three thousand units of its popular model Scorpio; as a proactive measure taken in accord with the voluntary recall code introduced by Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) in July 2012. The sole purpose of this recall is to rectify a faulty pressure regulating valve that might be present on Scorpio EX manufactured during the period from May 2012 to November 2013. The exact number of vehicles being recalled amounts to 23,519. Previously, the company had recalled nearly one thousand units of Scorpio for the same concern.
The pressure regulating valve is a part of vehicle braking system. Being a safety concern, the company wants to be 100% sure that its customers are out of any possible danger. The suspected vehicle will be first inspected by engineers and the valve will be replaced free of cost immediately if found faulty. The Mahindra dealers will contact the owners of the affected vehicles for inspection.
"This recall is limited only to the Scorpio Ex variant manufactured during the said period and does not affect any other Scorpio variants" clarified company in a statement issued in the same regard.
