Mahindra and Mahindra has recalled the new-generation Scorpio and Nuvosport over faulty fluid hoses in the engine bay. This is a proactive recall to address the issue if defective.

Mahindra isn't giving out the number of cars being recalled but has confirmed that vehicles manufactured until June 2016 might be affected. The new-generation Mahindra Scorpio came out in September 2015 while the Nuvosport, the updated version of the Quanto, came out earlier this year in April.

The company has said that it will contact individual customer to set up service appointments and rectify the issue free of charge. The recall will come in accordance with Society of Indian Automobile Manufactures' (SIAM) policy on vehicle recalls as there is currently no formal policy to recall vehicles in India. SIAM's policy states that any manufacturer that has to recall vehicles will have to inform the public through the media and its official website. It also says that any safety defect will have to be rectified free of charge.

When we got in touch with a couple of Mahindra dealers, they said they were unaware of the recalls.

Last month, Mahindra proactively recalled the SsangYong Rexton in India to inspect the rear driveshaft. This recall was for all Rextons manufactured before September 2014. Currently, Volkswagen India has also issued recalls for its dieselgate affected cars, starting with the previous-generation Skoda Superb.
