This Premier Padmini @ the market bought back fond memories when dad used to drive us in one when we were kids.

Some of the roads were very narrow (as you can see below). These are not main roads - but newly built concrete roads passing through the village.

v12, thanks for the regular updates. You seem to have documented the travels in the Xylo in pics; reminds me of the same approach i had followed when reporting my updates on my Scorpio ownership thread.

Hi Rajesh, I don't know the exact amount it cost for the service since it wasn't done at the A.S.S. The cost of the diesel and oil filter was approximately the same except for the engine oil which was Castrol (instead of Maximilefeo) and cost Rs. 2100/-.

Hey Fintail, the PP was a random car which was spotted in the market. The car reminded us of our trips in our Premier Padmini when we were kids.

More updates : A recent top up and the Xylo returned a decent 9.09 kmpl. 373 kms of city driving and consumption of 41 litres of diesel.

The OE Exide battery was replaced with an Amaron on this week. Not that there was any problem with the Exude but after 2 1/2 years and 22,000 kms - I think replacement was due. Better to change it now than wait for it to pack up.

V12: I had been wanting to write this for long as to how your Xylo purchase story and detailed review helped me decide that Xylo is the most suitable for my family/travel needs and daily ride. I had been avidly following your posts on Xylo since late 2012 (at that time I was not yet a TBHP member, only in Nov 2015 I became one) and use it as a guide when I decided to purchase Mahindra Xylo D4. We too evaluated other MUVs and finally settled for Xylo.

Just wanted to say a word of thanks how your posts really helped to set aside my apprehensions and provided clarity as to what I was paying for. Since the purchase, we have Xyloed to many places across South India, munching miles, happy legs, smiling faces and no fatigue! It's been 3+ years since Xylo came home and still we are enamored of the car...your inputs greatly helped! Thanks again!
