Default Re: XUV 500 niggles and their solutions

I am reaching 40k now but have not felt any need to change any of the brake pads. Of course my front pads have run lesser kilometers as they were changed to the new design due to the brake screeching issue, I think at some 15k kms. But the rear pads are what they were from day 1. And disc warp? Why should a 40k run car have disc warping issue? Something is foul here. This can't be normal.

Same with me. Front brake pads were changed at 54000 Kms and that too upon my insistence. Technician advised me it would go for another 5000 Kms.

I had enquired about the life of brake pads (Front) & technician replied it varies from 30000 Kms to 45000 Kms depending upon usage.

Yes they were changed due to design change from BOSCH to GALFER, IIRC @ 15000 Kms.

Rear has not been changed at all.

Replacing Disc, now that's a serious issue or flaw.

Exactly, My rear pads too lasted very long, Only the front were changed around 30 - 40k i forgot the exact kms reading during the change but it was definitely above 30k,

Here in mumbai with my friend too it happend, A service centre in Kurla east made my friend change the pads and disk just at 30k that too both front and rear pads and disks, In short they were just rippedoff by the service centre.

A suggestion for all : Please double check before agreeing to replace any such major parts unless your 100% sure.

Default Re: XUV 500 niggles and their solutions

Hi guys I have bought the New Age XUV5oo W10 model two weeks ago, detailed initial ownership review will follow in sometime. However, I have started facing one issue. There is a huge grinding noise coming from the rear wheels abnormally. Sometimes it comes regularly and then disappears only to resurface. I had driven the car for about 600 kms without knowing about the noise as all windows were up. Two days ago, I drove the car with windows down and I heard the sound. Yesterday I took the car to G3 Motors in Navi Mumbai and currently they are fixing the issue. Today I have been informed that they are replacing the brake discs to see if the noise goes away. I have read online that the brake noise problem was present in the old XUV and that Mahindra had found a solution in the form of new brake pads and discs. Anybody else facing this issue ?

Folks,

This is a query about the New Age Mahindra XUV 500 W10 (Manual AWD). The vehicle has a "Camping Light" on the tailgate. However, when the car is turned off, and the tailgate is raised, this light does not come on when the switch is operated. The bulb seems to be fine (it's a new car with about 100 kms on it). Has anyone else had this problem? Is there some setting that needs to be activated?

Thanks for any help on this.

Congrats for the new XUV!

Nope, there is no setting. Its a manual switch beside the camping light to switch it on or OFF. It does not turn on or off automatically but only with a switch besides it. It can be used regardless of vehicle is powered up or not.

If the bulb is perfect, must be fuse?

The brake grinding noise in old XUVs was always from the front brakes. Never from the rear. Please do get the noise investigated properly.

W10 does not have the so called "one-hour mode". So this is normal behaviour. Not much can be done about it.

Thanks SDP for your concern. I took the delivery from the workshop now and the SA told that the noise appeared to come from rear but actually was coming from front. The problem was that some kind of backplate had come off and that was making the noise. They have fixed it for now. If it reappears I will escalate to Mahindra.

I feel that they should have diagnosed it in the first instance itself considering that it was prevalent in the previous gen XUV instead of having to make you wait a couple of days for it. Anyways, its a good thing that they rectified it just in time before your trip! Do post a travelogue of the same bro

And thanks for letting me have a go at it; I'll never let you drive on Palm Beach whenever I'm around

Battery recall

Had gone to service center today for getting free vehicle wash coupon and couple of other niggles fixed. On checking the vehicle details in system service adviser says that there is a battery recall for my XUV.

He is not sure about details of the same, in turn he was asking if I had got any communication from Mahindra regarding the same. Unlike earlier recalls, I am yet to get any SMS or mail from Mahindra. May be the recall is a new one and I may get it in next few days.

Mine is a May - 2014 model vehicle with Amron battery. Those who have similar vehicles can check the same.

I am going tomorrow for the exact same thing. The M Wash and a couple of niggles I am facing. I hear a faint underbody noise everytime I drive my vehicle. This had been there from the time I purchased my XUV.
Also will try to get more info on the the battery recall.
Did they say what is the issue with the Battery?

Mine is a September, 2014 manufactured W6 with Amaron Battery,

Not sure what the issue is. Infact, RM was also not sure, from that I guess this is a new recall and hence no update on that elsewhere. Will be going to receive the vehicle in evening, will check with them again.

I enquired with RM about this Battery recall, My vehicle is not under this recall but RM said that there is some other Service action for my vehicle for Exhaust Hose replacement..
By the way my vehicle is manufactured in Nov-2013.

But no info on this available in the M&M service action page

Rattling sound from the brake
---------------------------------

I have had this problem of a mild 'thud' and vibration felt in the brake pedal while applying the brake at slow speeds. After three visits to various service centres the problem is still unresolved. The various technicians are equally divided on whether the sound is coming from the right side or the left - quite frustrating indeed. I have the W8AWD, Dec 2014 model.

I had driven up to Gopinath Hill north of Bangalore, yesterday. It is about a km of steep climb on a rough unpaved road, with speed-breakers every 100 feet or so. While coming down I deployed the 'hill-descent' option, and every time I applied the brake I heard a rattling sound. Never encountered this on my previous visit to the same hill about 6 weeks back. I do not remember exactly but it is very likely that I had used 'hill descent' on that occasion too. And there was no rattling sound.

The rattling noise was not there when I got back to the highway.

Has anyone encountered this, or knows what could be the cause?

Thanks so much!

I am not sure on the vibrations from brake pedal in slow speeds.

But when HDC is enabled, I assume this is how it behaves when you apply brakes. I have come across the same behaviour in my W8 April 2015 model.

Usually when you keep your foot on the brake pedal and press it gently you feel a shudder and kind of grinding noise.
