Hi! All, Mahindra is just the face of RSA. Actual service are being provided by Allianz global Assistance. The same company who is also one the promoters of Bajaj Allianz group. AGA is the same group which provides RSA to Merc, BMW, Toyota, Honda, Chevrolet and Hyundai. Nobody can do the job better then them. Having said that there will be service issues but bare minimum. I recommend them even for B2C support. Till the time the vehicle is covered under RSA by Mahindra or XYZ manufacturer the service provider cannot deny support. For XUV the maximum years of RSA coverage underwritten is 5 years since date of purchase. So all XUV owners having vehicle older then 2 years should either buy RSA separately or opt for Insurance policy from a co. Which is providing free of cost RSA along with Insurance policy. Eg., Bajaj Allianz

Default Mahindra XUV500 : Test Drive & Review

Saw a news snippet in ndtv profit that Mahindra is recalling 2300 XUVs, xylos and scorpios.
Was this posted here earlier?

Extract:
"New Delhi: Homegrown auto major Mahindra & Mahindra is recalling 2,300 units of different variants of its popular SUVs Scorpio and XUV500, and multi-purpose vehicle Xylo to rectify a defective vacuum pump in engines manufactured in May this year.

The preventive inspection and replacement, if needed, of the vacuum pump would be free of cost for customers, who would be individually contacted by the company, Mahindra & Mahindra said in a statement.

"The inspection is limited to approximately 2,300 vehicles of Scorpio (Vlx/Sle/Lx), XUV500 W4/w6/W8 and Xylo H9/H8/H4 variants," the company said.

The exercise is in keeping with SIAM's voluntary code on vehicle recall, it added.

Earlier in July this year, Mahindra & Mahindra had recalled around 23,000 units of select variants of its popular sports utility vehicle Scorpio to rectify faulty pressure regulating valves."

My solution for this: Invest on good sounding music system, it works for me
Astonishingly, that annoying sound from the driver side door has disappeared completely. I wanted to show it to the service station and was delaying it. I guess procrastination pays!

I have heard of instances where noises appear and disappear mysteriously. Others also experience it?

Yes, there was this 'Kich Kich' noise coming from my XUVs front wheels, only when turning, and I was told that they are due to the wheel covers but after a good wash today the noise is no more there. :-)

Quick question. . Has any body fixed reverse camera other than the one available with the mahindra genuine accessories. The reason why I am asking is that the dealer himself is discouraging me not to go with the one available saying lot of folks have raised complaint saying that the display is not good etc .... What other options do we have ....

Mod Note : Please avoid typing with excessive dots.........like................this.

Thanks

Yes. I recently replaced the old reverse camera installed at the India garage with an after market camera. The new camera has night vision, HD and wide angle at a price of 1800. My RM too advised to get it replaced outside after it went kapoot.

Can you please provide more details about the place from where you got it installed. Does it effect the warranty. I also got the same feedback from India Garage showroom.

@sridharp77, I got it done from this place called Sachin's autoshop in kormangala ( pm me if you need exact location). He has done a lot of work on my current cars and previous ones too. In terms of warranty, if the wires are spliced (where required) your warranty should not be affected.

Please ensure to get the camera activated at service center. That bit can only be done by Mahindra ...they will hook up a laptop to activate the reverse camera.

Hope that helps.

Inder, mine is a W8, but I am not sure about W6. Fairly certain it can be done. Have a friend whose W6 has a reverse cam.

Yes it is possible. However for W6 & W4 you will have to install a display also along with camera since infotainment system does not support reverse cam video.

As you guys know, in any car, with use, the clutch-plate wears down and the clutch starts to slip. This is obviously not covered under warranty as it is normal wear and tear. But in this case, the pedal does not sink.

Clutch pedal sinking is associated with the clutch hydralics failing and is clearly a case of design failure or part failure and definitely not regular wear and tear. Can't imagine by what logic M&M can deny covering it under warranty.
