Even a vehicle recently purchased for our office has got this issue. So the driver always keeps the front passenger side seat belt always on despite no one being seated. Looks like it is indeed a fault with some batch of Marazzos.

There are two dealers in my city and I checked with second dealer. It was the service manager with whom I spoke. He assured me that he will get back to me after having a discussion with the technical team (wonder what the team is!). Later, he called me back as assured but just to tell the same old story by asking me to engage the seat belt when no one is seated since there is no other go to avert the alarm/beep. He added that this is prevalent in all the models of Marazzo. I just said thanks and did not utter a word before disconnecting the call. Terrible...!!

How do I take it to Mahindra's top level people? This is something that can't be accepted out of a car that costs more than 15 lakhs..

Did you get a chance to try this out?

We had complained to Mahindra regarding the seat belt warning on passenger side even if no one is sitting, the spongy brake pedal feel and the stalling issue in 1st gear.

They kept the car for 2 days, bled the brakes and the situation has improved by 10-15% but still not good. I think it is by design that the pedal feel is spongy and the braking hardware can not bring this heavy car to a stop with confidence from 110-120.
Regarding the seat belt thing, we were told there is no weight sensor under the passenger seat and you have to buckle it up if no one is sitting or the warning keeps beeping. We have bought a dummy seat belt buckle for the same, wonder how they could miss such a basic thing in their testing regime, they have passed on our feedback to Mahindra.
As for the stalling, they had no solution for us, what team bhp review reflected happens, if you are not careful with the clutch, the car stalls in 1st gear.

Otherwise the car is nice, very refined engine, excellent ride quality, solid build and spacious interiors. Does not feel like a Mahindra product at all.

But I couldn't get an assistance from Mahindra dealers as well as after market accessory vendors. I reside in Coimbatore. I have enquired about 5-6 after market vendors and all of them say they don't have the connector/adaptor for the head unit (provided by Mahindra in M6). I'm particular about NOT drilling a hole on the bumper for fitting the camera. Any help on this would be helpful
Update (for M6 owners) : I managed to get this done after a lot of struggle. I went up to the Mahindra dealer and asked them to wire up the camera from the head unit but not to mount it on the rear bumper. The process includes all wirings, software update (this is necessary for M6's HU) and testing of the camera (but not to mount it). Now I had the wiring in place and all I need to do was to mount the camera on the tail gate and wire it up. The camera mounting was carried out by a renowned car decor in my city and that's it. The camera works like a charm now. The good thing here is that since the wiring is done by an authorised M&M dealer, the vehicle's warranty remains untouched and the whole kit except the camera (which is an after market accessory) comes with an one year warranty from M&M.

Note: The camera was not mounted on the dummy which is just below the Mahindra logo on the tail gate. Rather, it was mounted right next to the dummy using a clamp which holds the camera. However, the clamp is tucked in neatly and will not be visible outside but only the camera has its head out.

In market for a seven seater, under 20 lacs on road in Bangalore on Company Car Lease. Don't have many options except - Marazzo, Hexa and XUV 500. Got a shock after test ride- RTO does not allow 'Company cars' with a bench seat. (8 seater)

I have a 6 yrs old kid who loves to lie down during long drives and a bench seat (instead of captain seats) is a must. I am left with only two options -

1. Go for 7 seater
2. Ditch car lease policy and buy on individual name.

Strange rules

I remember reading similar conversation in Marazzo whatsapp or Facebook group where some one had asked about way to overcome CLV restriction of 7 seater.

One person suggested to buy the 7 seat version and replace middle row seats in the showroom to bench seats. That should cost somewhere around 10-20K since the seat can be bolted to chassis directly. I am sure people who bought top end M8 version have done it since initially there was only 7 seater version of M8.

Let us know what Mahindra showroom suggests.

I hope this would not void the insurance. I think the seating capacity of a car is an important part of the insurance policy, and you cannot buy insurance for seating capacity other than what is mentioned in the car registration.
