Does anyone know what needs to be done? I mean can a get a replacement under warranty or entire locking system needs to be changed with new pair of keys.

I am using the spare key right now. However, I would want to get it rectified.

Thanks,
Hi, you can contact your authorized service centre and you will be provided with a new remote with key in few days. If your remote has no physical damage signs you can ask for replacement under warranty. Don't mention about it falling.

As I said earlier, I haven't noticed it happening over the years, but then if the amount being filled after the shake is a few tenths of litres, then maybe it has slipped my notice.
There is a good possibility that the battery (button cell) has come lose from its position. You can open the battery cover (the part below the logo) and check this.
Since due to no power, the key is not generating the random code and hence the vehicle thinks of it as an unauthorized attempt.

Hi to all. I'm very new to the forum.

I'm planning to go for an XUV. Mostly W6. One of the things missing in W6 from W8 is ESP. What is it exactly and is it something one can live without? Any other major things that one feels is critical and missing in W6? Leather seats, color screen, hill descent etc are things I can live without but would like to hear from personal ownership experience of people.

Secondly, does anybody have any experience with Infinity Auto links Vikhroli? They're offering free insurance + corporate benefit of 10k. Is it good enough? Anybody has any tips on that?

Cheers.

I took the test drive with KTC Mahindra Kochi and I am more inclined to go with them as I felt they were more professional than TVS. On road price of tvs is about 10k more since the insurance offered by them is expensive. Also TVS quoted 10K for reverse cam where KTC price was 4K. Huge difference!!

You can check the Bosch - M&M ESP video on

Major difference between W6 and W4 are ESP, additional air bag and navigation.

Hi

Last week I went to Sahyadri Motors, Pune and bought the extended warranty for my XUV5OO W8. I paid Rs 21348 for 4th and 5th year warranty and 50K more kms. So now my total warranty is 1.5L and 5 years. The team at Sahyadri was pleasant and made me feel nice. The CRM office is a lady, Anusuman and she was knowledgeable and through with her work. They offered me a complementary carwash but due to lack of time i did not take it

I think it is worth the spend for the peace of mind the extended warranty offers

Any views on this?

Hi ,

First of all congratulations for your new XUV. Good to hear about your pleasant experience and yes 2 years of extended warranty is totally worth it when it's Mahindra. You can have peace of mind for next 5 years.

Happy driving.

How old is your XUV? And what all is covered in 4/5th year warranty. I too want to buy it since my 3 years would be ending soon (in Oct) but confused as to what all it would cover. Since after 3 years things like clutch, brakes etc would come under wear and tear hence it might get tricky to ask for replacements under warranty.

Hi RajivNarvekar

What kind of discounts/schemes did the dealer offer? I want to ensure I'm not getting a raw deal.

We are thinking of exchanging the scorpio for a XUV. The sales guy mentioned that you can either take one of the 3 discount schemes available - corporate, exchange or loyalty bonus. Is this true? He said even if we sell the car to Mahindra, they will only pay one of these 3 discounts. My gut feeling says that it is untrue. Before I write to Mahindra, can anyone confirm their own experiences regarding this?

AFAIK, these are three separate items and you can claim all the three and not just pick one of these. In my case, both exchange bonus and corporate discounts were available and as I was not owning a Mahindra vehicle previously, was not eligible for loyalty bonus.

Got this SMS two days back. I am planning of taking my vehicle for first service this weekend, hence will not be using this. Pasting SMS so those who has not received also can use the offer.

"Give your XUV500 a complimentary Car Wash this monsoon! To avail SMS MW to 575758 from your registered mobile no & visit your Mahindra Dealer. Team Purple Club "

Is this warranty provided by Mahindra directly? When I talked to the dealer yesterday they told that Mahindra has been talking about it but they have not rolled it out yet

Yes, it is provided by Mahindra directly and they have launched it more than 2 months back. Your particular dealer seems to have outdated information.

Find attached the details of the extended warranty.

As regards to discounts there are several categories:
1. Cash discounts
2. Dealer's discount
3. Exchange bonus / discount
4. Corporate bonus / discount
5. Loyalty bonus
6. additional discount
7. Referral bonus (refered by an XUV owner)

The point is you should explore all options and be well prepared. I know of a case when a dealer increased the ex-showroom price by 12k and then offered 5k extra discount. When i confronted him he said sorry.

So visit all the dealers, prepare an excel sheet that shows the ex-showroom cost, registration, tax, handling, insurance and accessories separately. compare the prices and choose the one dealer that has good feedback on Team BHP

I will recommend Sahyadri Motors over Silver Jubilee and Kundan Motors in Pune.

Cheers
