Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

No. They don't install on top behind ivrm where there is a camera. No issues at all.

1. Has anyone tried Lane Assist features in their AX7L ?

This never used to happen before the update but can anyone confirm? This happens irrespective of Smart Pilot feature is turned ON or OFF.

2. Speaking of Smart Pilot I absolutely do not recall this being in an option and only started noticing it after the software update. Anyone who has used ADAS extensively can please comment.

Thanks!
Both of these features worked well in my 7 something version.
After updating to 8 something too, both features are working well.
Hope this helps

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

Few observations which I wanted to share with fellow BHPians.
1. The fast USB charger in the front does not work as expected. I checked with the service station guys and they keep on telling it is as expected. The fast charger Infact works slower than a normal USB charger. The type C charger at the rear works as a fast charger.
2. The rear AC vent does not always through cool air. Have now got it checked twice at service station, but still do not have any resolution.

If anyone of you have faced problems similar to point 1 and 2, Kindly let me know.[/quote]

I have been facing both the issues.These are reported by many other owners too.

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

I ordered the new reverse parking camera AW60118 for my AX5 on the 4th of August. 8 days later, the order is still processing. On asking the customer service, they say that the delivery timeline is 10–12 days. Are these guys always so slow? I mean, who takes 12 days to deliver a package these days? Can anyone else share their experience with these guys?
Also, has anyone found an aftermarket alternative to the super costly luggage cover/parcel tray from M&M?

M2all is not at all reliable source to buy accessories. Apparently, they also take order even if the item is not available in stock. For items in stock, they are delivered within a week. To add to agony, the customer care is not at all helpful. I had already burnt my fingers once with them so decided to stay away and got the newer reverse camera installed from the dealer.
In case items are not delivered in 12 working days, you can request for cancellation.

The way things are going, I think it's going to be the same with me. The problem is that my dealer is too lazy and can't get even a single thing done on time. They have not been able to procure the new camera as they are really not interested in doing anything out of their ordinary routine. It's a relief to know that I can get a refund if it's not delivered in 12 days.

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

Hello,

I got lucky on one of my booking, got allotment against a cancellation. However issue now is dealer not ready to register vehicle in Mumbai (he will be penalized by Mahindra as this territory comes within their jurisdiction, NBS International). In Mumbai it's all NBS, and they cancel franchise if any other dealer registers. Now I am in big dilema how to register within Mumbai or let it go and wait for NBS to allot (which may go upto another year from now, and I don't want to wait for so long). Will be indebted for life if anyone has any way in, dying to get my hands on.

Get temporary registration done from the dealer and then, get your car registered in Mumbai on the basis of that.I did the same with my previous car.

Have similar issue in my AX7 D AT...had told the service station during 1st Service that the vents in 2nd row dont throw cool air at times...however when they checked it worked fine. I am travelling and 3 days back my brother took the car and again the 2nd row vents were not throwing cool air. Will have to again follow up once I am back.

I spoke to Dealer about this, but they say its not allowed for them and rules are very strict to register vehicle outside of their territory. There will be penalty of upto 5 lacs and may cancel their franchise. Yet he was ready to speak to ASM and see if any option.
I personally do not understand this rule in current market scenario, where NBS itself don't have vehicles to allot and yet don't allow their buyers to go outside!!

I will circle back today on what ASM has to say on this matter.

Get TR from your dealer, and bring it across to Mumbai. Reach out to an agent / approach RTO yourself.

A friend recently picked up a new car (Maruti) in Goa, and has brought it to Bangalore on TR plates. Now waiting for preferred number so registration can be completed here.

In 2015, I bought my Baleno from Ranchi as there was no NEXA dealer in Bokaro (both in the same state) at that time. They told me that they could register the car in Ranchi at my Bokaro address, but I preferred getting it registered in my town. So, I requested that they issue a TR and, after that, I applied for permanent registration on my own in Bokaro. Dealer employees (or most humans for that matter) have the habit of steering clear of things they haven't done before. I am facing the same behaviour from my dealer on a different matter. Also, they are not'registering' the vehicle in their city, they are just getting a temporary registration.
Try talking to the customer care representative of the dealership and enquire at the RTO about the issue of TR. One other thing is that, nowadays, cars are delivered with number plates fixed on them, so TR is not required in most cases. That might be one reason why the dealer personnel might not know about it and hence refuse to get it done.

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

Quick question. I am considering the ax5 petrol automatic as the sales person is confident of getting a car delivered slightly earlier. Is there a hill hold assist in this version as well as ESP? Waiting on this to book.
