About the service, well it's quite obvious from your post that you do not think the world about it. Why don't you try a different service center? And if you are really worked up with the service, try and write a written complaint instead of a verbal/call center one. A written complaint generally gets more attention!!
Thanks Neel.

There is Only one Mahindra Authorised Service Center in Solapur and that is the Dealer itself.


@ Beejay

I have read at many places on internet that we can get the Oil Changed from outside and use the Bills of the Local Garage to claim the Warranty (God Forbid) if needed.
I only used Oil from outside.

At next Oil Change I will REcord a Video of the Oil Change and show to the Company (M&M) (God Forbid) if Warranty needed.

Hey Indigo still awaiting for the pics of your gold shimmer beast. i have been watching for the xylo since quite a long time and as we will be buying a new MUV by the first month of the new year i recommended xylo at my home but my Dad rubbishes it by saying that no one can beat the toyota innova and even if they charge 1-2 laks more they are providing a world class product.

But i still strongly feel Xylo to be a better option in terms of space ,build quality, interiors , power. what is your say??

Not maybe in the case of build quality but definitely in the terms of POWER ,SPACE , FEATURES FOR A MUCH LESSER PRICE...! it sports the same Crde powertrain of previous generation Scorpio which has been upgraded to match the car specs....

depends which variant of both you are looking at. if you can buy the innova vx then the xylo should not even come into consideration, but if it is a lower end innova you are looking at the xylo might be more vfm.

if we are talking about pure VFM, the innova cannot beat the xylo, whichever variant you compare. the xylo E8 with airbags has everything the innova has got & more & is priced around 2.5 lakhs cheaper.

heck, the base innova is more expensive than the top end xylo!

Here we can see that the "Tripmeter B" shows that Distance Travelled by the Vehicle is greater than the "Odometer" ITSELF.

Very nice pictures , very detailed
Are you experiencing small problems like rattles and whining noises? And what about the gearstick vibrations? does it keep vibrating while the car is on?
Many people i know experience this.

Default Xylo Now With Airbags

Hey guys just read on the net that the mahindra xylo is now equiped with airbags on the top variant along with ABS . This was the feature which had made the xylo unacceptable in many minds due to its rivals having airbags[innova]
This is another feather to the beasts cap.
Chers!

Chers!
Two more things will place Xylo a more strong player for M&M.

Side impact beams on all doors on all models
Introducing A/T from E4 model
Providing ABS as standard/option atleast from E4 model

After Sumo Grande MKii GX pricing Xylo appeals to me more honest effort from M&M. Neverthelsess by introducing the above features M&M can benefit more.

A/T Xylo at various price point will do the trick for M&M as repatriating Indians , Urban aspirants will find xylo AT will be more suiting and economical too.
