interesting . . . they don't have to wait for arbitration to be settled to start making and selling their SUV, do they? We've been waiting so long to see the pickups that it doesn't seem possible they'll ever show up.

I'll believe it when I see one on the Walmart parking lot. And if they do I would hope the screwed over dealers get a FREE option to sell them. I'm liking my 2012 Tacoma and not quite broken in yet (1400 miles in the 1st week ) I'm getting 19 mpg . So it'll be 3-5 years before I would even think about getting a Mahindra.

so the statement for the press by Mahindra says they will not be building Mahindra TR20 and TR40 in Alabama in 2012. What about Ssangyong TR20s and TR40s? Actually, I think they were on the verge of ditching the TR20 and 40 name, maybe they'll come up with a new model name, like Genio?

What does this remind me of . . . oh, yeah: "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Monica . . . ".

Maybe they have no plans for Navistar to assemble vehicles in Alabama in 2012, but they haven't gone as far as saying that.

Because Mahindra has been so forthright, direct, and open in the past...

I've been sitting on this story and trying to verify everything I could since early October. I finally felt like I had gotten as far as I could get. If I didn't believe it was accurate I would not have published it. Standard Mahindra policy is to not comment on anything, so I thing I struck a chord for them to publish a press release in response to my blog (which they already don't like). I wish they weren't so dim and they would see that publicity like this is a good thing for them, and that there are a lot of people excited about their product. Mahindra is a company with terrible public relations but with a great product.

What it comes down to is that Mahindra wants to be in the US and they want to kill off GV. So they jerked GV around by not filling orders, and sent their worst performing truck for EPA evaluation. Two years later they now have the Genio platform with a far better (Americanized) design and a more slippery shape.

Anyway, I want to thank all of you who read MP and support this forum (Andy is the man!). If Mahindra won't thank you, then I will. You guys are the ones who keep the torch lit for Mahindra when everyone else has written them off. Thanks, and Happy Holidays.
