Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

6 month old XUV700 caught fire whilst driving.
A detailed investigation would reveal the cause, however the owner claims no modifications were made to the vehicle. Itís a diesel variant.

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

Can anyone confirm if we could install auto - fold mirrors in XUV700 AX5 model without any aftermarket relay, can the showroom itself do it or we have to go the aftermarket way to install them ?. Also can we install TPMS from the showroom or is it not possible at all ?. Any help will be much appreciated.

There aren't many instances where Diesel car caught fire. Diesel doesn't catch fire that easily. Must be something that can only be revealed after thorough investigation.

BTW my delivery is due today (AX5 D AT) but not worried about this incident.

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

In the above response, they talk about external loads to external circuits.

Is taping into the fusebox and thus hardwiring for a dashcam qualify under the above statement?

Absolutely no need to worry at all. On the road are 100,000+ XUV 700s and AFAIK this is the only incident where fire was involved. Congratulations!

Hi sandegov, my car was manufactured in July and it had been 10 months without any update on the indicators. I decide to tweet on 16th April then I got a call from anant cars BG road on 3rd may and the installation was done on 4th may. A tweet will do the trick

Refer to member @Ravenavi's ownership thread for full details, he has got the installation done from the SC. But he too had to purchase one relay (specs not known) from the out-market to complete the installation.

Thanks sir. Will check out the thread and it seems like relay is the only option to install them but i am fine with it if its the only way. Thanks for your help.

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

PPF application on my Beast.


Hello everyone there,
This the continuation from my previous post about the purchase of the XUV700 and the issues I had faced from the dealer. Those who wanna read it can click this link and have a read. https://https://www.team-bhp.com/for...ml#post5545171

So after the purchase, through various and thorough reaseach I was able to short list the 3 detailers in Lucknow who were well known for their PPF application, even though there are numerous applicators in Lucknow itself.
The three I shortlosted were-
1- AlwaysDry
2- Exotic Carcare
3- Detailing Devil
All three had their own set of brands with Always dry providing with Llumar and Garware and Exotic had Magnuspro and lastly, DetailingDevil had their own DragonSheild.

I went ahead with AlwaysDry as they were providing Garware too and it is now a well known brand in the PPF market and it was suitable for the budget as both the others gave the quotation of Rs 1.50 lakhs + GST for the full body with 5 years of warranty. I finalized on the Garware Premium which costed me Rs 1.10 lakhs for the full body and complementary service the AlwaysDry offered me was they ceramic quoted all the glass panel and alloys of the car and most importantly how the owner and the staff behaved with their clients, it was like you are at home and they were willing to solve any query you have and you can ask even the dumbest question and they wont be having any issues answering that.
Since this was my first time getting my car PPF'ed, I went all the 4 days, the time it took them to complete the car with eveyrthing, to personally check and see myself.
Attaching below are some pics of the car during the entire process.

Initally they masked off the entire car and got it ready for the paint correction. Though it was very much new so their wasnt much of the paint to be corrected apart from some minor swirl marks that had come.

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

A quick update. The Black Panther, finally, is whole!

Had been following up with CRM team since March, for my Jan delivered vehicle for the rear sequential indicators and finally got those fixed yesterday.

While doing so, was informed by the SA that the vehicle has 1) ECU and 2) Silverbox flashing, showing up in the task list on their system. Shall plan to do that in next visit.

Re: Mahindra XUV700 Review

Lads, Anyone renewed their OD insurance?

Mine is about to expire in a month and I'm being bombarded with spam calls from various agents and insurance companies. I'm blacklisting them all but I do need to renew with a decent company at some point.

So my quick questions:

1. Which company did you renew from?
2. What is the recommended IDV?
3. What was the total premium (incl. GST)?
4. What is covered?
5. Should I opt for zero-dep? That itself is increasing the premium.

Current insurance is from ICICI taken via dealer with zero-dep and other things covered. TP is valid for 3 years obviously but OD is about to expire. Never made any claims.

But they don't indicate whether the wires were cut or accessories were installed by plugging into the fuse box, which is the prevalent practice for all electrical accessories, from showroom or aftermarket. Mahindra showrooms themselves used to sell a number of after market accessories which were not Mahindra manufactured, e.g., front Parking sensors. Ofcourse it's also possible that the quality of the installed aftermarket accessories was poor or installation (even if into the fuse box without cutting wires) was sub par which caused the electrical short circuits.
