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.

Default Re: Mahindra XUV500 W8 AWD : Long Term Ownership Report. EDIT: Now sold!

Dear Team-BHP friends,
I took a Mahindra XUV W8 self-drive Voler car last Saturday with approximately 5 Litres of Diesel in it.
Went straight to a fuel station where he filled 76.93 Litres of diesel in it (with receipt). I was next to the tank all thru when the diesel was being filled.

Internet says that the tank capacity of 70 Litres.
Voler guys say that they gave me 5 Litres of Diesel.
Station owner (raised a complaint to BP) says that all calibration is proper and there is no issue with equipment. He has asked me to come and check.

Voler Manager surprisingly says that the fuel tank can take more than 70 Litres and that he has himself filled till 80.

I am not sure who is lying, or if someone really is.
Need experts who own the car to comment.

P.S: If this thread is in the wrong group, requesting admin to move it and not delete it.

Prasanna

No one is lying. I have filled 78.5 ltr when I took delivery of my new age beast and topped up beyond autocut of the dispenser. I have filled fuel >72L on many occasions after the fuel warning lamp blinks but in all cases it was after autocut and upto the filler neck. The pumps I use are mostly COCO so shorchanging is doubtful.

I was not aware that this could happen and may be, had hyperventilated thinking that I was possibly cheated :(
It is very interesting to know this fact though.

Thanks a lot @RajeVenu and @manikjeet.
Among those whom I had reached out to since morning with questions, your responses were the fastest

Default Instrument cluster fuse box panel

The mid row 12v power outlet was not working in my vehicle, so i thought of checking the fuse. The manual (the book I have and the one online) displayed the following picture for the fuse box location. But it is not the fuse box location in my vehicle(2014 W6). I am guessing it was changed later. Owners of newer vehicles please confirm.

Saw some relays from below the footwell panel in what seemed to be a fuse panel.

Removed 3 screws that was holding the panel and somehow managed to pry open the cover. You need a chunky screwdriver or a ratchet driver to remove the screws as it was pretty tight. Remove the panel from the right corner and believe me, it is not an easy job.

15A fuse for the 12 power outlet was blown.

The Fuse layout

Overall a very tedious job for a simple fuse replacement. May be the reason why the location was changed later.

Regularly fill more than 70 litres here. The nearest big one was 73.70L.

@tirthankard77, did you exchange your W4 for the Automatic?
