Most mentioned that XUV doesn't fetch a good resale value and one can find a 5 year old XUV W8 around 5-6L. However in my limited experience, I havent come across any below 6.5-7L. Am I missing something here? Will appreciate some help.
Getting something in that range seems a stretch to me unless the car is really beaten. XUV's resale is not that bad in my view. Also the fact that the current prices of the car have gone up so much compared to 2012, its helping the resale values also. However one input I do have is that you should consider buying cars manufactured post OCt 2013. Price might be higher but those models had all the known major niggles fixed and fairly trouble free. Mine is from March 15 and had no issues.

This query is more for the main XUV review thread.

A good condition XUV W8 even the early batch are impossible to find at prices you mentioned. Ill recommend to increase the budget and focus on well kept cars.

Question to XUV owners,
I wanted the dimensions (width) of the dust cap of the Low Beam ( projector). Can one of you please check and let me know.

TIA!

If you are looking for those, you won't find them in spares shops. I had one of the caps damaged, looked everywhere but no luck as they are not sold separately, finally I sourced them from Mahindra body repair workshop for free from accidental salvage parts. I don't have the dimensions.

Have you had a chance to upgrade/replace your XUV's suspension/shockers?

My 5 year old W6 front suspension have started sounding weird so i guess it needs replacement. I am confused whether to get the stock suspension from ASS or get some after market ones from outside. Any suggestion/recommendations ? Also any reliable place you know from where i can get this done?
Hi Anshuman, posting it again

I have not come across any aftermarket good suspension kits for XUV. Suspension at 75k is all good, some rubber parts have been changed till now, got it thoroughly checked recently.

You are hearing some strange sound, get the car inspected, high probability it will just be some boot or rubber part.

Same for me. Am also looking for used W8s. Typically in the range of 7.5-9.5 for 40-65k run vehicles for 2012-2014 manufacture. You will not get any half decent car for a rupee less than 7.5L. I have 5-6 on my radar in 8-10 range, including couple of AWDs. Esp, if you buy one that has been cared for with clear maintenance record. I have an open budget and have looked at 2 of W10 of 2015 vintage at around 13-13.5L. So, XUV seems to hold value little better than others. It is a great car by all means. We can talk and exchange notes, if needed.
