Thanks. I will keep the above points in mind and hope that the shine and colour on my car remains as yours

Thanks. So far so good. I too hope to have a niggle free ownership. Mahindra seems to have ironed out most of the issues in the initial batch but only time will tell how much of it holds in the long run.

Thanks. I agree with you. The colour looks gorgeous if kept clean and shining. However that in itself can be quite tedious

Nice write up Manasmadaan, Great Buy. The XUV is a beautiful vehicle. Here's Wishing you a wonderful ownership experience.

My W6 is 7 months and 8000Kms old, practically niggle free and I just have loved driving every km of it. Though it is my second car and was meant to be my weekend and long distance drive, the XUV by choice has become my daily runabout.
Love it and am sure you will too.

Thanks. Initially i was very apprehensive about XUV as i was not sure whether it could be my daily drive within the city but now after driving it for 15 days i can say that it is effortless to drive in the city.
Good to hear that your XUV is niggle free and i hope that my belief that mahindra has solved most of the niggles remains strong.
Happy motoring

Liked the opening post, the crisp review and loads of pictures.

Can you please share a close-up pic of the LiveYoung sticker? Just trying to figure out if it is pasted from inside the windshield.

Congrats for the XUV. The interios storage snaps have been comprehensively covered. The car looks really imposing in purple. Has the FE improved or is it still 8-9ish?

Thanks and yes, the purple colour looks great. The FE in city is around 12.5 and on highway it gave me 16.4 km/l. I guess that is ok for such a vehicle.

I was thinking of buying a Meguiar's Ultimate Quick Wax to maintain the shine of my car, Can anyone please suggest if it is a good product?

Hi manasmadan,

I use the quick wax regularly on my car and it is good for quick detailing(upon a well waxed/polished car) effort.

You just spray and wipe, as simple as that for that immediate effect. Does not leave any white marks on the rubbers.

My car has covered 1000 km and no niggles faced so far. The FE is hovering around 12-12.5 mark with mostly city driving. Waiting to take it for a long drive somewhere

The purple I guess is a very good choice with elegance of darkish colours like black and sporty looks of Red. But very very sadly it is available only on W8. On the other side it is exclusive to W8 owners.
