Definetely new one. The higher rate of interest is not worth it. Try to get sbi loan. The Executive here at bangalore was playing around with the quote and almost got me 95% loan. So if you can stretch your budget and loan options get a w8.

Question Re: Mahindra XUV500 : Test Drive & Review

This is what is mentioned in the pre-invoice - "MCPHERSON STRUT ASST LH TC1". Part No 0401BAA05441N.

Amount column left blank as its under warranty. Is this a critical part? The mechanic mentioned that the new vehicles are very sturdy and this is very very rare issue.
Please ask the rm what exactly is the problem that required a replacement of the suspension and post it here

With monsoon hitting us, can any AWD owner put a video as to how the AWD performs in slush? Maybe sand etc as well.

I have seen Anshuman's video of the Leh region, but it was short and couldn't make much of it.

Thanks

My XUV 500 had its 1st Service today (5000kms).
Engine oil and Filter was changed. Total Bill was Rs. 3000.
The dealer convincing me to go for Extended warranty and RSA for 5 years. He says its useful, since the extended warranty covers major parts like Engine(incl Turbo, Oil pump etc), Gearbox, A/c Cooling Coil. He says that the cost of these parts are high and so its better to opt for this extended warranty. You guys think its advisable to take the RSA totally for 5 years (2+3 years) for Rs. 4000?

What your SA is saying true, parts of XUV are expensive from what other members have quoted earlier. Hence it may make sense to get an extended warranty.
However I guess you understand that extended warranty and RSA are two different packages, warrenty rates were quoted by few members earlier. It is in range of 20K (link )

RSA though cheaper I guess depends on your driving conditions, if you drive out of town mostly and unfortunately vehicle dies far from a M&M center you may end up paying more than the 3 years Rs.4000 quote for RSA.

What's the logic having different PSI for front and rear?
Shouldn't all be same?
