I for one, love the design of this model and think it is the best fitting and looking side steps that has been developed for XUV so far.

Thanks in advance guys.
Congrats Bala

No point. Buy a brand new one. Will enjoy a better resale value down the years.

I agree with rednikhil. However it is not just the resale value that would matter, but most importantly it is the peace of mind. Are you aware how the car has been used for the last 3 months and 3K kms? You may definitely save 75K, but then if any major issue has happened with the car in last 3 months they you may land yourself in big trouble. Also any idea why the seller is selling a brand new car within 3 months?

My suggestion would be to go for a brand new XUV from the showroom.

Thanks for the quick reply.

What if I bring my mechanic for a thorough checkup and bargain hard to bring the price to 16.5 lacs vs 18 lacs with transfer included to Mumbai.

And if not 16.5, then at what price?

Should I say no to the seller?

16.0 or 16.75.

Again thanks to Autoindian and Rednikhil.

I think unless you get it for 16L, then no point in going for this deal. As everyone said, better to go for a new one, instead of a used one to save few thousands.

BTW, any idea why the seller is disposing the new vehicle?

Exactly, I agree with Indian. First you need to understand why the person is selling within 3 months of buying the car. What is the reason for him to take a huge depreciation hit and dispose off the car?

If you really want to go ahead with this deal, then get the service history checked from the authorized service centre. Check if any insurance was claimed. Consider this car only if it is accident free and no insurance has been claimed.

Bargain & bargain hard. IMHO, price should be negotiated/bargained at ex-showroom price of the car and you are anyways going to re-register it, so that cost should be made up if you are buying it used [This is strictly my opinion]

1L+ off on ex-showroom, at least.

+1 to all this. But I wouldn't be too bothered if there are no claims and no history when doing the VIN check.

There are all kind of probabilities if one decides to sell a car and some can be weird & hard to believe. A through check, VIN check and insurance claim check should be suffice. But bargain...no one would buy a used car for that much premium, one would rather buy a W6/W8.

Has anyone explored if the new brakes are available for earlier-gen XUV? Would love to pay if required.

mm403, can you confirm if the side step hinders placing the jack and lifting the vehicle in the event of a flat that needs to be changed? Reason I am asking is because it seems to cover the area where we need to place the jack and was wondering if you had any inputs around this?

Also, can any other XUV owners who have installed the side step shed some light on this?

Hi Adu. The side step doesnt hinder in placing the jack, it just hides the spot where the jack is supposed to be placed due to its size. You can check by looking at it after its installed.
This side step was available earlier as well, I have not faced any issue in lifting the vehicle even once.

I am curious to know the ICE upgrade options for the W6/W8 and also presume you'd need to take off the 3rd row to house a proper sub-woofer ?

Gyan please !
