The car does not require AdBlue as it is 1.5L engine. It comes with LNT+DPF setup.

You can refer to the following ownership thread on AMT.

That's strange. I have driven 2600 km till now (manual) and haven't faced clogging yet.

That is really strange and not normal behaviour at all. Especially since you are driving at highway speeds regularly, clogging every 500 kms indicates some issue. Please get this checked in the service center, and replaced if possible.

Hello BHPians, Might be posting my first issue here..

My diesel W8O MT is about 40 days old and the first 1000 km was driven within the state of Goa. I had a 3700 km planned covering 4 states, and I wanted to complete the 1000 km inspection service before this planned trip. I started my drive - exit Goa, hit some good plain roads in Karnataka (the Pune Bangalore highway) and I noticed this weird sound whenever the turbo kicked in right after 1500 rpm. The best explanation of this sound that I could possibly come up with is like this - a muffled 'chu chu chu' (like a broken whistle instead of the continuous whistle that I used to hear in other diesel cars that that I have driven). And when it happens, I feel like there is a momentary loss of power before it gives the full power surge. Once noticed in the beginning of this trip, I couldn't ignore this possibly odd sound throughout the trip! Please note that this sound is not so obvious if the AC blower is running at high speed and the audio system is loud. I normally kept the AC blower at 2 and audio at 2/3 bars, during which I could clearly hear this weird turbo kick-in sound.

I am not really sure about how the turbo sounds in this vehicle is as there is not a single Diesel vehicle for test drive in Goa. I thought of testing in some other state, but I couldn't do it due to time constraints. Are there any diesel MT owners or some turbo experts here that could shed some light on whether this is how it is supposed to be?

Thanks!

Very difficult to understand or give a definitive answer without listening to the sound. Can you please take a video of the same and post it?
The turbo does sound just like any other turbo whistle, but it is sweet and not unbearable.

It is difficult to pinpoint the exact nature of the problem based on your info.
Possibilities:
1. There is a distinct rumble @ 1500 rpm when the engine is still warming up; Check if the sound persists even after 15-20 minutes of driving
2. New XUVs have reported issues of gear oil leak that starts off as a rumble around 1500 rpm in the third gear
3. Some XUVs have a dashboard noise like chu chu chu that is more prominent on long drives, try to isolate this
4. The rubber boot near seatbelt pre-tensioners tend to dry up and create a chu chu sound. Try lubricating the rubber boot from outside and see if this resolves the issue

These are the most common possibilities that I could think of based on your description. It would be great if you could elaborate more on the driving conditions, driving time, specific conditions when the problem is prominent. A video recording (if possible) would be helpful.

Thank you anantpoddar and SansGT for immediate replies. I am sure that this is definitely not points 1, 3 and 4 as noted by anantpoddar. I will try to get a video for a better understanding of the forum.

Hi Guys,

Thanks a lot for all your replies. We booked the XUV300 Diesel AMT today. All the feedback and experiences that you guys shared here really helped in making this decision. Everything from the colour of the car (we chose white because we noticed that the aquamarine owners said it scratched easily), to the other concerns we had about maintenance etc., we referred to this thread for a lot of things before booking the car.

I actually look forward to learning more from reading about your driving experiences with the XUV300. Please share if you guys stumble upon any sweet discoveries, or tips & tricks to enjoy this car more. Would love to keep sharing from here too.

Cheers

PS: A special thanks to Vijinís thread too. I enjoy reading all the details he shares. Hope you too find time every now and then to keep sharing buddy.

I had booked it with Vayalat cochin on Dec 28th. I booked the W 8 O manual first then changed to AMT a week later. It reached the dealer's yard on Feb 20th, I took it home on march 5th. It went for Cquartz ceramic treatment and now back with me

M&M has announced a new color in the xuv300 line up called Galaxy grey. Booking are accepted in this color and their website too lists it now.

Been to short trip this weekend to Coorg. Did tadiandamol trek and stayed near Harangi backwaters. It was lovely experience. You can actually drive around backwaters during this time.

1. Central locking kit
2. Rear view camera with a separate display
3. Front parking sensors
4 . Bolero wheel caps as the XUV300 caps weren't available anywhere. 2 out of 4 have been lost now. Need to get rims painted black and get the dual tone wheel covers available for XUV300 at m2all.com
5. Floor and boot mats from Amazon for 1.5 K. Was a good deal for the quality. Noodle mats
6. Floor PVC installed for 3k.

Yet to get
Wheel covers
Seat covers. Still running with plastic covers .
Boot cover
Some chrome for the front grill. Looks bland and similar to S Presso in some angles. Is the front grill similar to WO available?

It should be whisper quiet throughout its life, the likely answer to the increase in noise is that the floor lamination has ruined your car`s NVH insulation. It is recommended to use only a rubber or fabric removable mats over the vehicle`s OEM floor carpeting that is designed specifically to take care of NVH.
