If anyone gets to see these test vehicles in person, please try to get a look at the odometer... A reading close to 100K is what we all want..

With regard to the anti-Mahindra comment from the other forum,

There's no question the TR40/TR20 will be very polarizing. It'll probably get poor reviews and surpass the Pontiac Aztek as the ugliest vehicle ever to hit US soil.

I think many people will buy it because they want a small diesel and don't care about anything else. Other's will buy it because they need a small truck and can't stomach 20 mpg.

His comment about going to a dealer for all repairs and parts availability is a very valid concern. If you buy a Mahindra for your daily driver, you need to be concerned about parts availability and the inconvenience and cost of going to a dealer for all repairs. I think you'd be foolish to buy a Mahindra if your closest dealer is 100 miles away.

On the other hand, if you buy a 6 cylinder Frontier or Tacoma, you're taking a risk with regards to gas prices. If gas prices go up to $4 again, I would spending more over $100 extra a month to fuel a Tacoma versus a TR40. That's assuming diesel costs around premium unleaded and the TR40 gets 30 mpg.

If there are enough of these trucks out there their will be mechanics other than dealers to work on them. Same with aftermarket parts.

I heard from one of the Mahindra dealers that some work may be allowed to be performed at a VW dealer without voiding the warranty, if so that will ease the situation.

Though the Aztek was ugly, I think we have to remember modern cars such as the Smart car. That car is not only ugly, but for some reason it angers me. I really just want to pull next to one at the stoplight and push it over, then leave.
