Mahindra Thar Car Mods Video
The Thar owner in the video lists out the issues he is facing with his newly modified Thar. He spent a whopping Rs 12 lakh just for these aftermarket modifications to his Thar. That is an incredibly massive number just for additional modifications to a brand new car. The owner got his car modified just a couple of months ago and the problems have started to get exposed. He shows the cracks appearing on the inside of the A-pillar where the audio system component is installed. There are signs of rust appearing at various parts of the body as well. The owner shows a sticky feel to the glass of the instrument cluster of the driver. The USB ports of the vehicle are not working and the horn requires immense strength to work.
However, the most shocking part is the tweaks done to the transmission of the SUV. This Thar comes with an automatic transmission. After getting the SUV modified, the owner experienced an issue with the gears after 2 days. After taking the vehicle to the service centre, it was found that the bolt inside the gearbox has been replaced. The original bolt must’ve been lost by the car modifier and he cleverly put a different bold without informing the owner. It cost the owner Rs 13,000 just to get that fixed while the car modifier refused to pay. There are marks on the windows as well that are overtly visible.
