Default Re: Which Jeep To Buy

After the long wait for thar I decided to buy a Jeep (This time mind wins) .My plan is Buy a 4WD VFM Jeep and wait for the Thar with FF AC and quality interiors. From DB's and vinod's post I understand it will take time.So I shortlisted restored MM550 and Mahindra CLASSIC. from this two Which one is more Value for Money ? (I don't want to lose money while selling it) what will be the normal price range of this two vehicles ? does the classic comes with LSD ?

Hi Sreejesh,
In my opinion MM550 is more value for money. I have recently bought Classic, base price of classic starts at 2.2 to 2.5 lacs. It has noisy XDP engine and can accommodate 4 people,whereas in case of 550 you can get well restored vehicle for 2.75 to 3 lacs which has refined xd3p engine can accommodate 7-8 people and has better handling than classic.
Most important Classic has become rare vehicle now, you need to search a lot, but 550 is easily available.But in offroading being SWB classic has many advantages.

Regards,
Shubhendra Singh

Im on the lookout for a diesel 4x4 Jeep as well , But like most people Im not quite able to make my mind up which Jeep to go for , I do like the mahindra major 8seater / Mahindra MM550 DP 4wd ST , I would like a open top Jeep , the fog lights or whacky paint jobs do not catch my fancy. The jeep will see city usage more than offroading, I own a Maruti Omni which I drive for family & a Royal Enfield which is my commuting vehicle, With a modest budget of 2L what can I expect to get ?

And what are the major differences between MM550 DP /XD/XDB
