I got this error message last week, and was clueless on how to proceed further.

Many thanks, Avinash, for your tidbits of wisdom !

A small update:

The odometer now reads 77,000 Kms

Over the last couple of weekends been to closeby places. Some pictures from those drives.

Also, attended the 75 point free checkup camp - complained about the noise while pressing the clutch. Thought it was a spring on the pedal but turns out it was due to Clutch MC - lack of optimum pressure in the morning was causing that weird sound. There was no problem with the actual shifts or no judders, nothing. Guess what, Chrome Motors Mysore road happily sent it through warranty claim and I return home with ZERO payment.

Ciao until next update!

At around 79300 kms, symptoms of worn out clutch started - got it changed.

The usual summer vacations and our trips to beaches continued: pictures from the recent drives to Goa, Vengurla and some water bodies in Goa -

The notable tidbits:
  • At vengurla, there is a newly started all - women mangrove safari rides. If you get the first morning boat safari ride, you will see a lot of birds! An amazing experience if you are in bird watching and do carry a DSLR!
  • After the Banastarim bridge, there is another newly laid road that leads into Sanquelim bypassing sesa factory and villages thereafter. This road goes through Virdi and its super narrow at the exit when you reach Sanquelim.
Hopefully in another week, Orange Cheetah will go for 80K Kms servicing. A complete checkup and a lot of preventive measures due.

Ciao until next update!

With a few minor things to inspect and action if needed, 80 K kms service will be done this week.

Delayed post about 80K service:

At Chrome Motors, Mysore Road, it was the most deserved break for car and me alike. Got all things checked and did below things:
- Engine Oil Change, Routine 80K service
- Various Filters change
- Replaced all brake pads (no warning yet but they were all almost to EOL)
- Also replaced the front discs

Total bill came to around 29K INR.

Before I started form home, I had added the engine oil flush and had bought 6 ltrs of synthetic engine oil from amazon - Motul 8100 X-cess 5W-40 API. The cost mentioned above is inclusive of this.

A quick visit to Madhu's for WA, WB including the AC recharging ensured all the necessary and good to have things covered too. Also spent weekend deep cleaning the wheels - a summary of cleaning below:

Ownership tales of the Orange Cheetah - 2015 Mahindra XUV5OO W10 FWD. EDIT: 80,000 km up-20180501_113100collage.jpg

A good wash and all suspension re-torqued, everything seems great with Orange Cheetah! With age and more miles, there are more and more smiles!

Wandering around KRS Mysore, Summer Visit to Goa

Also used my bachelor weekend to stroll around KRS backwaters and nearby places without a definite plan. The day ended up in some great picturesque locations and result is below:

Also, paid visit to Goa to get kids and spouse back in Bangalore for colder weather than hot and humid Goa. Clicked below pictures en-route:
