You can see the trucks Malhotra are bringing into N.A. on the web. There is a 2 door, a 4 door truck and a SUV all with the 2.2 diesel. They are setting up in the US market then Canada. I wish it were the other way "round!

Got any URLs? My Google-fu must be weak this evening; I can't find them.

Nevermind... I answered my own question... The name of the manufacturer is:

Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd.

The dimples could easily be stamped into the sheet metal, however the hemming presses that hem the door, hood, and trunk skins to their back frames, would flatten the dimples along the hem lines where the front and back pieces are joined about one cm around the part creating an outline of flattened texture around the door, hood, and trunk.

This would ultimately take away from the look and stlye of the vehicle.

I work in an automotive factory, and quality, appearance, and style are extremely important in building and selling a new car, and it is true that generally people who buy used vehicles such as your self don't mind dings, rust, and scuffs.

The dimple concept is good for saving a bit of fuel, however fuel econonomy is only a small portion of why a coustomer chooses a certian brand or model. If a manufactuer dimpled a car today it would most likely result in loss in sales numbers. Chances are the auto manufaturers have looked at this idea and given it the thumbs down, for now.

I'm never buying a new vehicle ever, to be honest. Mainly to do with the fact that I'm not even allowed to change my own oil while the thing is on warranty.

Someone's sold you a line on that one. Most warranty plans that I'm familiar with allow you to do basic maintenance and repairs yourself without voiding the warranty - you can even call the dealership and check before you do any work. Anybody who told you that happened to them wasn't being entirely truthful about what they did to void their warranty.

That said, there's plenty of good reasons to buy used. It all depends on circumstances.

Hey Mac, thanks for correcting me on the name of the Indian manufacturer. That is the truck, and I for one would like to be the first on my block to own one.

On the truck my parents' own, it doesn't void the warranty if you do the oil change yourself. What happens is that if the oil changes aren't reported by a warranty approved lube bay, then when something goes wrong in the engine, they won't cover it because you never changed your oil.

Both of my parents' vehicles have this rule.

Think we'll see dimpled cars anytime soon?
