Default Re: Mahindra XUV500 : Test Drive & Review

Guys,

Need some help with the following:

1. Last night I forgot to lock my car and when I returned to it today morning, I noticed that it was still unlocked? Doesn't the XUV lock itself after a period of time?

2. Sometimes when I unlock my car, it gives four beeps (from the car siren). This is very random and I am unsure of what its signaling. Does anyone know why it does this?

Thanks in advance!

1. No. Not that I know off. There's no auto lock mechanism in XUV.

2. The four beeps is an indication that your security alarm went off, from the last time you locked the vehicle.

You caught me right. I was out in the night on the city streets. Covered almost entire Mumbai city during one night.

So while on highway, the vehicle was reaching speeds of 80-90 kmph quite easily and it was very difficult to keep the foot off accelerator pedal.

1. autolock feature works only when you've unlocked your car, but not opened any doors. In that instance, it'll lock up automatically. If however you've exited the car after a drive [which is what I assume you're referring to], then it won't autolock.

2. the 4 beeps is an indication that a door is open and you're locking the car. if it sounds 4 beeps check all the doors.

While he should definitely start a thread are you still sitting on that fence my friend, seriously? Get off it. Its anyhow not a very comfortable place to be perched on

I have always liked calling a spade a spade. And I can tell you this. Post 2013 Jan, I do not believe XUVs have had anything that should throw you in a spin. It is an extremely capable machine that is a treat to drive anywhere. Highways it is definitely a no brainer and in cities too its a charm to drive (which surprises many).

As for the rest of it is concerned (all those niggle shiggle and other stuff) believe me most of it is nothing but apparition that frightens the fence sitters. I am driving one since a good while now and after driving close to 23000 kms across the length and breadth of the country I am pretty sure that all these fears are just self fulfulling prophesies. We have bigger horror stories sitting out there with much bigger brands.

As I said... come off your perch on that fence my friend.

During my discussions with the XUV500 Experience Executive of India Garage, Chennai, I was told that recently, Mahindra has cancelled the period stipulation for routine maintenance servicing for which only the distance [km] is the criterion now. For example, the first service was due at 5,000 km or 3 months, whichever event occurred first. As per the latest circular from Mahindra, the first servicing is due only at 5,000 km and the second one at 10,000 km and so on irrespective of the period. Anyone who purchased or serviced recently may kindly confirm.

Its not recently but quite some time since this was implemented. Close to a year now may be...

Or one of the sensor (most probably bonnet sensor in XUV) went off at night. This too cause this effect.

Yesterday I booked a W4, after cancelling my Terano Booking. I hope to get the delivery in 10 days. Request the Gurus to give their advice for PDI, which is planned early next week. I did the booking through India Garage.

Wasn't it more like they had revised the 10K kms / 6 months interval to 10K kms / 1 year ? I remember this as it was a result of some bhp'ians raising the concern on XUV FB page.

We have a thread here itself on S101 - NOT sure they would name it XUV 300 though. Given the acceptance of XUV 500, they could very well use the name but.

Gotten that damned Bonnet Sensor changed twice, yet the same issue of Bonnet Open while driving and sudden alarm ringing in the middle of the night!

Anyone here have a permanent solution? I am at the verge of punching my RMs in the face if they don't fix it this time!

This is strange, as the replacement of the sensor usually fixes the problem. If it didn't, not for two times in a row, there may be something else. Perhaps a not so proper insulated wire that's causing this malfunction. Please ask them to check the wiring and double check with their meters.
