Thanks for such an detailed overview, felt like reliving my initial days with XUV.
On the downside of XUV - you will have real hard time when time comes to replace XUV. There is hardly a vehicle which offers VFM anywhere close to XUV.
Many original XUV owners end up buying the updated XUV. However if you are looking for a 'Change', one has to shell out a bomb for Ze Germans or live with overpriced Toyotas

Since the damage to the tyre is huge, will it get covered under bridgestone warranty we get?
Hey rohit that's a bummer. I doubt that it would be covered under warranty due to external factors which manufacturer can't control. However give me a day's time will try to get some information and see if we can work something out for you

Its a very rare case to see a tyre manufacturer honouring a warranty on a tyre, They will clearly state it has happened due to external factors like potholes or nails on the road etc and those are NOT covered under warranty!

Actually you are so right. If one is looking for a decent SUV in the 15 to 20/25 lac range he is not exactly overwhelmed by a plethora of choices. The XUV seems to be the only real option here.

hey rohit so checked with a couple of guys on various groups and most agree with me and tanveer that since its an external damage not manufacture defects very unlikely they will entertain warranty claims in fact if the damage is extensive it would be advisable to renew the Tyre itself. Maybe folks at the dealership can help out and do that for you accepting it as a one of case since the cheetah is brand new.
beast is doing good however have visited the workshop thrice in as many months shes been home with a few minor issues.

Thanks for your kind words acharya. i agree most competitors are miles away on pricing the xuv is truly bang for your buck kind of car!

Absolutely agree in fact most other in the competition are seriously overpriced.
