It has been observed in the past few days that there have been some posts on this page by people wanting to sell the XUV500. Our stand on this has been clear since prior to the XUV500 Draw and as per the terms & conditions of the Draw, an Applicant who is an Individual is entitled to only one Mahindra XUV500, irrespective of the number of applications submitted and notwithstanding the fact that more than one of these applications are drawn as winners of the Draw.

hmm, legal parlance. What is the meaning of "Individual" in this condition. Does it mean that companies who have got multiple allocations still get those numbers.

One vehicle and so many complications and confusions, makes it looks as if the lottery was to distribute it free of cost .

Quick question: What are the service intervals of the XUV ? I've read 5000kms in some places and 10000kms or 3 months in other places. I've never owned an SUV, but is it par for course ? The Fiat Linea and I think the Vento also have a 15000 kms/12 months service interval. I think it's ridiculous if I have to take in my vehicle to the service center every 3 months just to keep the warranty intact and change all fuels.

Even if it's every 5000 kms, it is in par with other SUVs.

Oil change & everything happens every 10k kms only. The other ones are just a check up service.

You dont need to take your car every 3 months. In Scorpio, its every 5000 kms or 6 months, whichever is earlier.

For XUV, normal service is after 10000KMS. Its only the first few free service that needs to be under 5000kms.

I don't hink There'l;l be volume control but...

I faced this problem with my wife's two wheeler indicator beeper.
A DIY arrangement that I made was...I pasted a thick piece of Double side sticker.
this reduced the sound from an irritating frequency to a gentle beep.

For my previous car, I had made this arrangement for the remote lock beeper which was fitted inside the bonnet.

For my present car's reverse beeper, it was stuck onto the car's body somewhere in the boot.
I asked the person fitting it to stick it "ulta" such that the hole in the beeper (from where the sound comes out) faces the car body.

Locate the beeper in your car and close it with something so that the volume reduces.

I have fitted a "push-pull" switch in my current car (Indica) just under the steering wheel. Check with the Service Centre @ the possibility of fitting such a kind of switch. While reversing at night in the society, I switch off the reverse buzzer. I had to cut the wires though, since my car was well out of warranty I had no worries.

People can still have the hope, Anand Mahindra twitted:
Will look into that “@twittvenk possible to give happiness to remaining 17800 by alloting in next booking?couldn't answer my 3yr old kid”

Also update from Desert Storm 2012:
Reigning INRC champion Gaurav Gill back in action, set the fastest time in stage 2 of the day in his Mahindra XUV500.

Gill however saying stock suspension on the XUV500 holding him back.

I think that is great news that a Rally Car is being run on a stock suspension and yet clocking fastest times.

Thanks guys for the input. I guess i wrote something wrong. What i meant was the sound that comes out from the speakers while you reverse the car. In XUV, when you are reversing, the screen in front shows the sensors range and there is a beeping sound from speakers that starts with small beeps and starts to increase with the distance becoming smaller. And when finally your XUV reaches the closet point to the obstruction at the back, the beep turns to a irritating long beep.

This sound is so loud that my wife could hear it inside the house She says that i dont get to know when you come home (as the sound of the diesel engine of XUV is just amazingly quiet) but the moment you reverse your car, i can make out that you are here . This is when all the windows are rolled up (cant imagine if i roll down one of the window)

pavan kadam replied to my query in another thread stating that the XUV500 withdrew from Desert Storm 2012! Guess it doesnt speak well for its offroading abilities.

Perhaps I'll have to forego all the gizmos and settle for the Safari Storme.

Guys,
I am expecting delivery of my XUV 500 next week Silver W8 color, had booked it in the first round. Due to some change of priorities, I am not interested in keeping this. I am getting offers of premium from outside but would rather prefer prople from the community where I learned the a,b,cs of the Indian car scene.

Interested BHPIans who couldnt book in the first round and lost out on the second one and would still be interested in the purchase, preferably from Gurgaon/ Delhi , Please drop me a private message or a mail and we can discuss this further. Thanks a ton.
I am also reachable at infiniti.rahul at the rate gmail dot com.
