    Problem: Hand brake cable failure
    Cause of problem(if known): Unknown
    Specifics of repair work carried out: Replaced one of the two short cables (RHS) that go to the back wheels
    Cost of repair: R450
    Who did the repair: Myself
    Vehicle under warranty, Y/N: No
    Was damage covered by warranty: No

    Note, there is a difference between the older Thar (pre 2015 ish) and the newer "refresh" model. The older one uses a Bolero hand brake cable that is a single long one that is shared between both rear wheels, with a loop mechanism in the middle. The newer models like mine use two separate shorter cables from each rear wheel to the central mechanism.

    Spares were no problem, and the work was not complicated at all.

    Hey there! I'm thinking about buying a 2010 Mahindra Thar as a second-hand vehicle with less than 100,000 km on it. Can you share your thoughts or experiences? What should I look out for, and do you think it's a good buy in this condition?

    I have a Mahindra Scorpio S11 Adventure 2022. My big frustration and problem is that the 245/65 17 inch tyres on rims that it was sold with do not fit in the spare wheel space. The centre hole in the rim's diameter is too small and the 245 is also too big (spare wheel 235/65 17). I had to travel 1000km with flat tyre in cabin before I could get to a place to repair the tyre. I am happy to change to 235/65 tyres but the centre hole is a problem.

    Apart from this I am very happy with the vehicle.
