The worst car i ever bought! This biggest mistake of my Life
Mahindra KUV100 (PETROL) (TOP END) is a box full of garbage and disappointment covered and packed nicely in a beautiful dominating and misleading look !. I buy a new car almost every year and never been so disappointed. This purchase of mine seems like my worst mistake and gives me nightmares. Every time is sit in this car, i regret buying it. But bad luck, i am stuck with this car and have lost my money. Let me get to why this is so horrible ! I already own an XUV 500 and have experienced poor pre/post delivery inspection and ignorant service from the company. But i still chose to buy this car thinking Mahindra has improved. But sadly they haven't !. I took the delivery and as i was driving home, the car had already started making sounds from its suspension. The pick up was sad too. I somehow drove home and drove the car for a couple of days thinking it would settle down on its own. But it didn't.. Sent the car to the workshop but the car was returned to me without any rectification. I sent the car again a day later and then the problem was rectified. It was a defect and the car was not inspected properly. So after this inaugural bad experience i became skeptic of the car and been analyzing it critically since. This car is nothing but a MARUTI VAN with better looks ! SERIOUSLY ! Performance - The car struggles to climb basic hills and slopes. My WagonR and i10 are far better than this. Its pick up is very low and acceleration is terrible. There is no joy in driving this car whatsoever except the feel that people will give it a second look just because it is new. The gear ratios are bad and hence you either have to on the 1st every time or the 5th. Sounds - The steering makes sounds, the engine is very loud. Sound proofing in the cabin is nothing great. Sound System - The speakers are fine but the Bluetooth has been built for show only. It does not work well when on call. The audio captured by the mic/receiver is of very bad quality. Looks & Comfort - The only good thing about this car is its looks, interiors and seating comfort. The legroom is ample and can accommodate a small family comfortably. This car to be bought only and only if you really have to spend the money for looks. Except that this car has nothing great to offer. It is terrible at performance, a smaller engine of other brands outperform this car. Mahindra has no focus on the quality of service and which is the main drawback else the car would have been a marvel !
