Please note that we have already shared a circular to about the map upgrade process for Mahindra vehicles in India. The map upgrade has to be done through the Mahindra dealer service network only in India.

MapmyIndia has recently released map of version 18.1. But now we are not providing latest map update to Mahindra vehicles in India. If you have any suspicion so we request you to please get in touch with helpline of Mahindra for better assistance.

Hi everybody, enjoying my XUV500 W11 at (o) to the fullest. Have a query regarding extended warranty- what is the cost of getting the shield for 4 th and 5 th year. Is the cost same if taken subsequently on expiry of 4th year or if taken together in the beginning for 4th and 5th year? Thanks

I have recently changed the stock speakers in my XUV W(11) automatic. Though I am not a heavy music lover, I felt they were pathetic, and my kids were also complaining.

Replaced them with:

Hertz DSK 165.3 comps( front and back.)
4 doors complete damping.
Total cost came to around 21000

I am now quite happy with the sound quality, both low and high volume. The OEM headunit is doing pretty good job.

Check this out - https://www.mahindraxuv500.com/owner...shieldwarranty. Taking the 4th &5th together makes sense, also opt for the on road assistance.

You can buy online from here - https://www.withyouhamesha.com/shield.aspx

Hello All-

Just got my XUV 500 W9 Automatic. Realized that wifi is not available in it nor are the connected apps. Any idea if it's a hardware limitation or can be upgraded by a software update. Mahindra site says these are only available in the top end W10 model. But I was wondering since my Head Unit shows the wifi icon (although disabled), maybe it contains the required wifi hardware and only lacks in the software.

Thanks
Viv

Sorry i realised now only that my response for garbled for some reason. MMI and Nippon both mentioned that they dont have any update for 2012 xuv and i should contact M&M only who also do not have any idea. This is poor support and it will happen to newer xuvs as well in future.

Standard reply from M&M.

"This email has reference to the discussion that we had wherein you have confirmed & our records say that the Map my India map version*is updated to 9 which is the latest."

*

In future if there are any such updates which pertain to your vehicle, the same will be whole heartedly communicated by Sireesh team*to take it forward.

Question: My XUV 500 2014 model's front leather seats have started to wear out - the bottom portion that connects to the seat chair has cuts on the sides. This is a W8 and has side/curtain airbags on the seat back. What options do I have to replace the seat covers? Or do I have to replace the entire seat? And who does this kind of work. Thanks.

My Cheetah crossed 1.5L KMS yesterday.
It's 2012 November manufactured vehicle which I bought pre-owned in 2015 November @ 42K KMS.

It has been fairly reliable till date, without any out of the box expenses besides the usual wear and tear items.
The vehicle still feels and runs like a dream.

Obviously all the services have been carried out on time, without missing any services which is why she looks and feels as good as new.

Replacing entire seats is a costly affair, I remember another XUV owner (who is not located at Bangalore, hence may not be helpful with ASC contact) who got the damaged portion only replaced through a contact at Mahindra ASC.

You could try that out with your RM. Also, if you are still under extended warranty, you could try replacement, though it may come under wear & tear category.

Hi,
I request our support team to publish a review of the new XUV 500. With the competition intensifying in this segment, an updated report will help us immensely.
Regards

Spotted the pre-facelift XUV5OO in Dubai yesterday. Was pleasantly surprised and confused at the same time.

Mahindra XUV500 : Test Drive & Review-img_20190706_165112.jpg

I was surprised to see an unknown car from an unknown manufacturer (in UAE) being considered for a purchase.

While I was aware that Mahindra sells the XUV in the UAE, I had never ever seen one.

Then I went to the official dealer's website to find two points that shocked me:
  • On-road price - AED 56,900 including VAT [approximately 10.62 Lacs] for the top end with all bells and whistles
  • 5 years/150K kms warranty - offered by only Hyundai/Kia (on some models) and other Chinese brands in the UAE
That's half the price of what it is sold in India. I won't blame Mahindra here for that, as UAE has no taxes on automobiles, except 5% VAT.

But how come Mahindra is including the generous 5 years warranty here, in this harsh high temperature region. Maybe because the roads are good and in general the driving standards are better!

Why was I confused? Why will someone but the under-powered XUV here over the well established rivals? As I understood, there are no other good 7 seater options in this price range (without considering the Chinese cars)! There is the dreadful Toyota Avanza, which is obviously the default choice!

I have an XUV W6 and wanted to know if I can deactivate the follow me home function in my car. I think I have read it somewhere but cant remember. Any pointers?

IIRC follow-me-home works only in "Automatic Headlights" mode. Switch to AUTO on the headlights stalk and that should do the trick.

Are you sure Sanjay? My both W6 and W11 were never in Auto mode but still follow me home works.
