Mahindra Thar diesel: Vibrations seeping into the cabin

I feel that the vibration amount in the cabin is not acceptable, especially after I compared it with a diesel Automatic convertible Thar.

BHPian airguitar recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Here are a couple of observations about my Manual Diesel HT Thar.

There is a decent amount of vibration filtering into the cabin, gear lever and dash. If I step out and press the bonnet gently from outside I can see a lot of vibrations passing on to my hand as well as noise getting louder.

I figured that the engine cover was not placed properly and putting / rearranging it better reduced the vibrations on the bonnet. However, I still feel that the vibration amount in the cabin is not acceptable, especially after I compared it with a Diesel Automatic convertible Thar that has a more melodious engine hum and absolutely no vibrations passing onto the cabin.

What things could I have checked at the ASS?

Here’s what GTO had to say about the matter:

As you live with a body-on-frame Mahindra Jeep, you will realise that vibrations, squeaks & rattles are part of the standard equipment list. And they’ll only increase with time. Make your peace with them.

That being said, the new Thar is impressively refined for a 4×4 Jeep. You should drive the 1st-gen Thar or the MM550s to truly appreciate what the Thar offers.

Here’s what BHPian dr_TJ had to say about the matter:

I have a Thar Diesel AT Hard Top. I also feel a bit more vibration inside the cabin or around the bonnet or front bumper region. Especially when doing a cold start. Vibrations do smoothen out once the engine reaches operating temperatures though.

But sometimes, I do feel a slightly different type of irregular vibration even after driving the car for 30 mins or so.

Non-reproducible so don’t expect the service center guys to do anything.
