Mahindra Scorpio N User Faces Clutch Issues In Just 900 km of Use


It isn’t common to have mechanical issues in brand-new cars but this incident brings to light one such case.

In surprising news, an owner of a 15-day-old Mahindra Scorpio N reported having clutch issues just after completing 900 km. The deliveries of the Scorpio N have commenced after a mega-successful booking phase. Largely, people are excited and impressed by the final product. However, every once in a while, there is that odd vehicle that might have some defect or error from the factory. This seems to be one such scenario.

Mahindra Scorpio N Clutch Issues

Suddenly the clutch of the SUV becomes dead. The owner shows that the clutch stays pressed and refuses to retract after application. This, certainly, makes driving it impossible. The owner and his family are stranded on the road. The RSA also didn’t respond 3 times when the owner tried to contact them. Finally, after trying 5 times, the RSA registered the complaint and sent the towing truck to the spot.

The owner shows that the odometer of the SUV reads 914 km and it has just been 15 days since he took the delivery. This is quite shocking as the clutch is an integral part of any car. For most cars, it doesn’t need a replacement for the entire lifespan of the vehicle. That is what makes this particularly surprising. The owner is heard asking Mahindra to fix this as soon as possible. Have you experienced anything like this?


The new Scorpio N comes with a 2.0-litre mStallion direct-injection turbo petrol engine that produces 200 PS and 380 Nm, a 2.2-litre mHawk diesel engine that produces 132 PS / 300 Nm in the lower variant, and a massive 175 PS / 400 Nm of peak power and torque on higher variants. There are manual and automatic transmission options to choose from along with the 4×4 drivetrain. The prices of the Scorpio N range between Rs 11.99 lakh and Rs 23.90 lakh, ex-showroom.
