Hi Behram,

First up apologies for quoting you, but I did not have any other way to contact you other than this forum. First up some background, I had bought a Xenon 3L 4wd in October last year. I am experiencing some issues with the vehicle since one month after buying it :
Day 2 - Central locking failed - after tinkering for about half a day they fixed it.
Month 2 - I noticed some feedback and play in the steering wheel (especially over bad roads), and the vehicle pulls slightly to the left. I had pointed this out to the dealer to which they said they could not find anything. I have been driving like this since then.
Again Month 2 - Air-conditioner not cooling. Since winters was approaching I did not address this immediately, but in April this year when I did, the dealers asked me to wait for a month before they replaced the condenser in July this year.
After roughly two months I hear a whirring sound from the blower and take the vehicle to the TASS and they said its a blower issue and have asked me to wait again now for a month for the part to arrive.

May I request your help to expedite this in anyway possible please? Also it would be nice to know from your expertise what the steering issue could be?

Other than the above issues I am very happy with the vehicle and really enjoy it.

Dealership bought and serviced from Gargo Motors, Tinsukia, Assam
Vehicle has run 12,000 kilometres till date.

Looking forward to hear from you.

Best

Your ownership experience is exactly what this car needs. There is so little by way of reviews and actual ownership experiences about this outstanding vehicle. The car is Indian manufactured and we have just started on the long journey to manufacturing and perfecting such capable vehicles. There will be niggles, there will be heartaches but we will get there. The Xenon, XUV, Storme and Scorpio are all headed the right way.
Have driven the Xenon 4X4 an acquaintance of mine owns. He uses it on his farm and very vehemently defends the off-roading capability. The car is well built, tough looks and the mechanicals to take it anywhere. I wonder why the Indian Army does not try this as a replacement for the ever dependable Gypsy. The Safari and Scorpio they are trying our for now do no look the part..pure and simple.

Pardus, quite curious to know how your Xenon is doing! I'm assuming it might be approaching 60k kms? Any major upkeep expenses?

How's the reliability aspect been while on expeditions (other than rattles)?
