Thank you guys for responding and providing your inputs, I didn't have the heart either to even consider that vehicle especially the one that has 1.5 lacs kms on the odo. I am a bit of a weird boat here...

I've used an XUV in the past, mine was a 2013 W8, had bought it for 10.75 @ 29k kms in June 2014 and sold it after clocking 72k kms due to financial issues in June 2015. I've loved owning & driving the XUV because I only used to roam around with this car, as i have a home job i don't need any vehicle to travel for work & its just used for going out. so in that 1 year of owing the XUV i enjoyed so much that I managed to clock 43k kms

In Jan 2016 i bought grand i10 new (biggest mistake), the car performs good for the city but lacks drivability, performance and everything else. I am 6"1 and my head goes over the driver seat head rest :P
Some how i've spent almost a year with the Grand i10 but i don't think i can any longer, cause i love to drive to places & explorer which is something i am unable to do with this small hatchback I feel I need a bigger car again. So with the financials now sorted and a max emi budget of 15k per month I am set out to buy either a used XUV500 w8 or the other car of my choice was Ford EcoSport.

The issue with used car is the higher interest rate, thats what is killing it for me.
i've come across this XUV500 W8 2012 model going for 8 lacs has done 42k kms I will be checking it out tomorrow.

@rajamuneeb yes that is true, IMHO i think the car met with either a small or big accident broke the original headlamps & the owner decided to upgrade to the new ones
The issue is dealers here in Mumbai have a very high margin on XUVs, the post i made on this very thread back in September 2016 said the same thing, dealers keep a very high margin on this model for some reason whereas when you go to sell the same model they will want to take it for very less price. so here we cannot find a 2012 model for less than 7lacs

So a new EcoSport or a used XUV500 if its within my EMI budget?

Hi buddy. In this case I would suggest to stay away from this XUV. It's apparently an accidental vehicle. Also dealers try to maximise profit on second hand vehicles. You can try OLX or Quikr and find a direct seller hence cutting the dealer margins. But honestly I would suggest you to go for a new car instead of a used one. Ecosport is a much better option than putting your money on a second hand used XUV unless you find one directly from a seller which has been immaculately maintained. Go for the Ecosport and you will also have a peace of mind for your hard earned money spent. Best of luck 😊

Good buy. This is a great car and absolutely value for money at this price range as a used one. I bought an Oct 2013 car in August 2016, W8 for a similar price, but mine fortunately had the warranty and i could extend it for another 2 years. Enjoy.

I am not aware of Bangalore used-car prices, but price seems quite high for a 6 year old car, especially if you are 3rd owner.

Depending on condition, I will be willing to pay may be 7-7.5 lakhs max if I was looking.

Is the car running on original clutch? At what ODO reading were the tyres replaced last (if at all)? Any suspension work carried out (struts, lower arms, ball joints etc) ?

XUV battery lasts almost exactly 3 years. So the 2nd one would be on it's way out already. That's about 5K INR A set of 4 tyres would be 40-45k INR. Clutch + flywheel + slave cylinder would be 40k INR. Front + rear discs and brake pads would be in the 15-20k INR range to the best of my knowledge.

Urgent help required!
A friendís 2015 XUV500 W10 variant has a problem with the functioning of the sunroof. It opens and closes very slowly. It has been diagnosed as an electrical failure. But the Mahindra service is unable to take care of the solution. Please suggest a workshop with experience in sunroofs in Bangalore.

Need advice.

XUV 500 (W8) 2012, 1,00,000 KMS, MH12, asking price is 6lacs negotiable. Car is with dealer. Will need to check for service history.

I am in market for a used diesel car within 6.50 lacs. Main reason is the increase in home-office-home distance as well as need to go to native frequently nowadays.

Price seems good. Go for it. I know this is a super late reply. If I were in your place, I would go for it. Keeping Rs70k aside for any possible repairs or tyre replacement

Thanks for the revert. Didn't pursue the XUV due to parking issues near my house. Went ahead with a 2013 Fluidic Verna SX(o) CRDI. Costed 4.70 lacs with 70k on the ODO and full service history.
