any solution to this problem will be highly appreciated. Appeal to all Gurus/long time owners please help!
I faced a similar issue with my car. The culprit was the wires leading to the ORVM. The plastic clip which is used to fasten the wire to the door frame is prone to come loose or break when you ride on bumpy roads. In my case, it came loose and rattling was the noise of the loose clip touching the metal frame.

You can confirm this by lowering the driver side window glass. If the rattling goes away or reduce when you lower the window, this loose wiring could be the issue. If it doesn't make any diff, then it could be a diff issue altogether.

During my last service, it seems like the service engineers did not reset the service due alert. Now every time I start driving the car, the alert pops up and stays there though the drive. Is there a way it can be reset by me? Anyone aware of any options in the infotainment unit or app ?

I don't think it is possible to remove it via settings. I too once faced the same issue, however in my case it was just as I was getting out of service center.
Workshop guys connected laptop and cleared the same in some 5 mins.

I am facing an issue with my xuv for last couple of days. At times when I switch on the ignition, the ac blower will not start. Whatever settings you change there will not be any blower or ac. After running for few mts, it comes on suddenly and from then it works normal. Experienced this thrice since yesterday night. Has anyone else experienced this. Any idea what could cause this.

In some cars, the blower starts after a few seconds after switching on the AC. These few seconds allow the AC to generate enough coldness (evaporator temperature) so that the blower blows cool air right from the start. There is a sensor in the AC system to monitor the evaporator temperature. If the sensor is taking time to generate the signal, this symptom can be seen.

Secondly, if your AC is taking time to get the coldness in the evaporator, you may see this symptom. The engine is turning the AC compressor pulley all the time. But the compressor rotates only when you switch on the AC. A small electromagnetic clutch inside the compressor pulley engages when you switch on the AC. This rotates the AC compressor and your AC starts working.

If the electromagnetic clutch has been sluggish in engaging, this problem may be caused.

Does the AC have adequate cooling?

Thanks Rahul. The ac does have adequate cooling.Today I spoke with the service manager at KTC Mahindra Kochi. He said this might be due to a faulty blower motor. He was saying there is a circular from Mahindra citing similar issue and the resolution as blower motor replacement. Need to get this done over the weekend.

I have been hearing a distinct noise from engine bay (inside the cabin also) once ac compressor switches on. It is different from normal compressor sound. Shown to service centre two times in last 2 years. They never took it seriously and kept telling me that it is not a serious issue and it would come down after service. 1 month post warranty, when I showed this again, they asked to replace whole ac assembly for Rs 27,000. Basically they kept waiting for warranty to expire and I did not take this seriously as AC was coolng fine and just that there was some little noise which I got used to ( I always play some music so it was bearable).

I am fighting with Mahindra to replace it under warranty as the problem was informed multiple times in past. I lost faith in there quality of their service now.

Are your past complaints there on the record? For example, if you have mentioned the symptoms on the job-card.

Take up this issue with the regional manager of Mahindra with this record. The phone number of the regional manager will be displayed in the service station.

Same here too.

Is it because of the poor paint quality, is it covered in the extended warranty. I have a similar issue with my Gear Knob too. It seems I have to Pay Rs. 1000 for a replacement.

I own the new age XUV W10 which I bought in December 2015. I am not sure if this qualifies as a niggle but would surely like to get the experts on this forum to comment.
  1. Whenever I go over a speed bump or pot hole and if it causes the vehicle to wobble from one side to the other, I hear a knocking sound from under the vehicle . I also feel it as feedback on my steering. It is almost as if there is a part which is swinging up and down like a spring or pendulum. I checked the under side of the car and could not find anything odd.
  2. I find the gap between the hood/bonnet of the car and the body to be quite large. I compared it to my neighbors W8 and felt that the gap in my W10 is wider. I tried closing the bonnet to make sure it is properly shut but to no avail. Not sure if anyone else has this issue or if am getting picky
Your comments and feedback are most welcome.

  1. I had a similar issue, if not the same. With my 2012 W8, which was more related to braking. I got this checked by MASS and it went away with the replaced brake pads.

    SInce yours is the 2015 W10, I am not sure whether it would be the same. Get it checked by MASS anyhow. BHPians with similar experience would help in the tech side.

More of a fitment issue, can be rectified at MASS. I did not find this problem on my XUV, but it is there with my ECosport, changing the Rubber bushes which holds the bonnet or aligning them would do the job.

Cheers

Priyesh, this is a common problem with the XUV blower, I faced the same a couple of month ago. The blower shaft design seems to be the problem and hasnt been addressed. it takes dust and the blower motion itself produces some residual dust which tends to accumulate along the shaft. Once ample dust/carbon has accumulated the shaft starts to play the games. The problem will deteriorate gradually till the blower completely stops working.

As you said it starts working after a few meters, it must be some jerk that the car takes which shakes the blower and it starts. Take the car to the service center immediately and they will be able to clean it up and get it working normally. If ignored the blower will have to be replaced and the service centers usually run low on the supplies. I had to wait for 4 days before the service center could procure one.

I hope this helps.

For me the gear knob was changed under warranty, It had lost its paint, Also the handle was about to be changed but the since the part was not in stock i decided to delay that work, Since i could not keep the car with them till the part would have arrived.

Yes. It is because of poor quality. It just plastic handle with some paint. They repainted all handles free of cost.
