Mahindra team from Udaipur gave us exceptional service. They were ready at our Udaipur hotel with the new windshield at 10.30 pm when we arrived from Ajmer.
Thanks to them that we could continue our journey to Mumbai the next day.

Thanks a lot for the pictures. Also, hats off to Mahindra for the wonderful support ! I think you could send a mail to Mahindra HQ or some top chap, about the great support that you received. That would be great reward for the people who worked on the issue, and will encourage them to support drivers, at critical moments, like this

Wonderful ! Any reason they gave for this issue ? I mean, same type of windshield they are selling all over India. Is it a common issue in this area ? Or do they have any special windshield for this kind of geographic area ?

Well, I am travailing, sorry, driving to Udaipur next to next week, so just curious.

Nice travelogue and wonderful pictures.
Did you visit Manikaran (Hot springs) near Kullu? Few years back when I visited, I remember the road to this place from Kullu was very scary.

I am also surprised to read that windshield cracked because of heat, is it heat from the vehicle or heat in Ajmer? what was the temperature?

Not very sure about what happened. Maybe because we parked it in the sun for a long time. But the temperature wasn't that high.
They told that the same issue was was reported in few other XUVs as well. Anyway we got we got a free replacement.

Did not get time to visit Manikaran. Went to the hotspring at Vashisht only.

Regarding windshield, it was not due to heat from vehicle. Seems to be the temperature. But can't say for sure.

Fine photo travelogue. Narrations of to and fro driving experience if added in detail, would make reading this daring expedition still great.
I never thought that Mahindra service is this much spot on.
