- 1,577 units of the Mahindra Thar recalled
- The recall is limited only to the diesel variants of the SUV
Mahindra has announced a recall to inspect and replace the camshaft in the second-generation Thar. The company revealed that 1,577 units of the model’s diesel variant manufactured between 7 September and 25 December 2020, have been recalled.
According to Mahindra, a machine setting error at the supplier’s plant, on specific dates, may have affected camshafts in some engines of the diesel-powered Thar. Owners of the affected vehicles will be individually contacted by the brand.
The new 2021 Mahindra Thar is powered by a 2.2-litre diesel engine that produces 130bhp and 300Nm of torque. Also on offer is a 2.0-litre petrol engine that produces 150bhp and 320Nm of torque.
