Default Re: Mahindra XUV500 : Test Drive & Review

Do we have any major risk of getting XUV serviced from any local good garage?
Anyone here, has such experience of getting XUV services from local garage which is not an ASS ?

Why am I asking this is because -

I have got my XUV serviced from Mahindra ASS today at Pune (Silver Jubilee Motors). Its a 4th paid service at 30K kms.

I am surprised to see the bill amount of 10k which includes 5k for front wheels brake pad change and reaming for A/C filter change and inspection only.

They charged Rs 600 only for inspection of brakes of all four wheels. This is too much for only inspection of brakes.

Note from Support: Please wait for your post to be approved by the mods before posting it again. Thanks

If you get the car serviced from outside your warranty / extended warranty stands null & void. Not advisable.

A better approach would be to get an estimate of the service cost before you give the go ahead and remove all things not mentioned in the service booklets. They are seldom useful.

That said, if you want to explore options outside M&M, please look in our directory section for recommendations.

I changed my battery last week after 43k kms of driving in 4.5 years. It was Exide in the new car but I bought Amaron this time. 85 Ah 105D31R. The local distributor in Noida was offering 6800(MRP) -1000 = 5800 for new battery while carbatteryexpert.com was offering 2k discount. So, I settled for later and paid INR ~4800 . Undertaking a journey to Patna and did not want to take chances. The cranking of late was a bit sluggish although the green indication on battery was intact.

Has anyone here got bilstein suspension struts fixed on their XUV or any other similar upgrade from Pete's or a similar place? If yes what is your experience? Have a 3 year old W8 and my biggest complain to date (unresolvable) is the side-to-side/lateral movement over speed breakers/uneven roads as well as thud-making pothole crashiness.
