Thats an awesome update. Looking forward to the stable version and I hope I am able to get it installed during my second service may be in 2 months time.

Another thing I wanted to ask everyone here is how often do face the "Error" in ODO console? I have seen it like 3-4 times on my last outing to Goa. They tried to fix this during the first service but couldn't replicate it during servicing time. Once I see the "Error", I just have to take out the key and start again. But this is irritating to say the least. Any fixes?

I remember seeing this message during EMS (ECU) update long ago. May be you can ask them to reflash the EMS. This message would generally accompany with HDC warning issue. Its nothing mechanical but false alarms.

Last week there was a weezing sound when AC was operating in the car and by the time we reached weekend I realised that that the AC had stopped cooling. SO this Monday I sent the XUV to ASC and they advised that there was a leak in coil located in the dashboard. They also kept the car overnight to do the replacement of the coil as apparently the entire dashboard needs to be removed to do that.
Though the change is under warranty but I am little disappointed that this has happened given that the vehicle is just 1.5 years old and nervous that there is dismantling (of factory installed stuff) and re fitting.
Please advise if anyone had this sort of episode.

Mahindra is silently doing a minor recall for W10 variants. The power seat switches will be replaced as part of recall as Mahindra has identified a quality issue. My car is currently at service center as part of this recall. They are calling affected vehicle owners directly to get this rectified.

Had balanced my wheels from outside in November, and today I finally decided to relearn the TPMS. As I needed to refuel and also get the PUC done, I did this at the fuel bunk itself.

Switched off my car, pressed the left button on the cowl and switched the car on. The unit started displaying "learning" on the front left tire. Asked my dad to watch out for a sharp beep and I got down to let the air out. Let the air out to almost 22 psi ( from 30 odd) and saw my dad gesticulating to me. Forget the sharp beep, the FM radio had started playing!

What am I doing wrong?

I do get this error message sometimes, but it automatically goes away. Here is what i have generally noticed if your ignition key is off one step instead of complete 2 step process (by this i mean lock out completely as if you are getting down from the car) this error comes.
The same with bluetooth, if you dont get the ignition key completely off with the 2 step process then bluetooth generally doesnt work. hope this helps!

@nd4$pd: how did you get Android Auto in your XUV? Are you some sort of beta tester ?
I am not an official beta tester. But I am doing some testing.

Quote:
I am excited to see the detailed review on how the combination of things will work - I mean the existing Tyretronics, Alerts and info, music etc with Android Auto. Can we run the Google maps as well as MMI maps in parallel? Is it ok to add a Android phone for Auto and continue to use the iPhone or something like that for just phone features? Actually tons of questions... Sorry for firing them, I am super excited and curious to understand. ay be an informed decision to participate/ show willingness to my SA to trial this on my car as well.
Sorry I haven't had a chance to put up a detailed review.

When you run Android Auto, that pretty much takes up your whole screen real estate. You can however return to the regular Mahindra interface and run the MMI Nav. So although they won't take up the screen space in parallel you can still kind of run them in parallel. You can also choose to use a different phone (like an iPhone) for music streaming over bluetooth however, the Android Auto phone is always your primary "phone" device. You can also choose not to run Android Auto when you plug in an Android Phone so it only charges your phone.

I think Mahindra will be releasing this in April anyway.

Android Auto is a little buggy and freezes from time to time (I have gone a couple of hours in a 6 hour drive without freezing). I am not sure if it's the phone or the infotainment software at the moment.

Still testing the other features.

I beg to differ KAN as I recently got the coil of a friend's XUV changed at a known guy's repair shop and it took only 3 hrs. I hope I am not wrong in assessing the repairs.

Besides Android Auto there is a new tab with lots of metrics about the car in general (including whether the clutch is being ridden or the engine is being redlined etc.) called Ecosense. There is also a recommended gear indicator. I will try to provide more information tomorrow.
How did you manage to get this update? I'm getting my W6 AT delivered this Thursday. Can I expect to see this change in the MMI?

Hello BHPians. Need your help regarding seat covers. Has anyone installed seat covers from market? I am asking this question because I am planning to buy XUV W10 AT (Black colour) in May and based on earlier reviews, I came to know that itís really difficult to maintain light/Beige colour seat covers of XUV W10. I am wondering if there are any good seat cover options available in market and if anyone has used that.

My preference is black colour or Black and Beige colour seat covers that will also go well with interior of my Black Beast.

I don't reckon seat covers are necessary on a W10, particularly as it comes with factory-made Leather seats. Furthermore, the service advisers would themselves advise against purchasing seat covers as it may interfere with the Airbags - XUV W10 has side airbags too.

Touchwood ! This niggle/issue hasn't cropped up thus far on my vehicle yet- I did call up the Trivandrum Mahindra Service advisors in relation to this (both the Android Car Play and this recall), and they seem to be unaware of this.

I have never ever got a confirmation of any recall over the phone, In my experience with Mahindra past 5 years, Its mostly the people who answer the phone are not aware of it and probably rub off the work from their shoulders, But if any recall was automatically done when the car was sent in for servicing, Mahindra has its own way of doing its work.

Folks got the 3rd free 20K service done on my prev gen XUV a week back. Total bill came to 6300. Items replaced were engine oil, oil filter, fuel filter and AC filter. Only niggle reported was hand brake wire wiggling sound which was fixed. In addition to that SA found couple of extra sounds which he wanted to identify source and fix, but since they didnt bother me told him not to. DIdnt want them opening stuff and creating some other rattle . A.S.S used was Sireesh Auto, Marathahalli.

Overall the ownership in last 2 years has been fairly satisfactory. No typical mahindra issues seen yet that are reported on the forum. I guess the prev gen model was fairly stable by 2015 when i bought it. Out of the 18K km drive so far, 5K is on highways and 13k is in Bangalore city. This car is certainly a highway beast and I look forward to any kind of highway trip. In the city as well I havnt felt any limitation due to its size vs my hatch. The sheer driveability of the engine is such a boon in city that even the reasonably good Figo diesel 1.4 TDCi seems undriveable to me at times . Still look forward to leave for work in the morning just for the drive despite Bangalore rush hour traffic.

Future upgrade list is the very avg ICE. Just not getting the time to get it done.
