Never buy XUV 500 Or any other new launch from Mahindra for 2 years from the date of launch. Within 25,000 km three breakdowns.

1. First, at 6000 km, the music console stopped working, of course, they replaced it quickly.

2. Power steering went out of gear at Mysore, they say fluid leak, it took two hours for the pickup truck to arrive and 4 days to get the XUV back at home in Bangalore.

3. We were all set for the Diwali holidays to Wayanad, and the clutch broke down. No stock at the service centre expected days of delivery was 1 week.

4. Expecting a recall by Jan 2012, told by the company representative.

5. Music console again got screwed, stopped working again 6 months after first replacement, on 8.12.12,( 30000km) I was directed by the service person meet a mechanic at kora Mangala Bangalore. He did some soldering work for almost 2 hrs, showed me how fantastically it's working. But it lasted only for one day. 

Reported the complaint, but Mahindra has no system of recording. Suggested me to contact the same mechanic. He said to wait for the weekend to get the new piece.

    I quite agree n beleive cause i have got an xuv myself n heve written my review also some time back . mahindra really needs to improve the car n more over customer service. my xuv make all possible sounds om a slight bad road n the service advisor tells me its the way this car is designed. so it means what midnight oil the engineers of M& M have put in produces this class of vehicle. i got it checked once and am gonna chk all the rumbling again when am home this time hope we have some qualified people to look into my problem

    thanks for sharing the truth. tho its a good vehicle, it is too overhyped. certainly, mahindra needs to look into all the negative aspects and rectify it all at their cost and relaunch a new improvised model admitting the flaws that the current vehicle has. customers will appreciate it. these negative reviews keep me away from purchasing xuv howevr much it may luk gud. what we need is total luxury and utility with appeal at an affordable cost. keeping the cost low doesnt mean that mahindra can club crappy and class. wake up mahindra

    addition Never buy Xuv 500 Or any other new launches from Mahindra for 2 yrs from the date of launchWithin 35,000 km six breakdown!!!!! 1. First at 6000 km, the music console got conked off, of course they replaced it quickly. 2. Power steering went out of gear at mysore, they say fluid leak, it took 2 hrs for the pick u truck to arrive and 4 days to get the Xuv back home at Bangalore. 3. V were all se t for the Diwali holidays to Wayanad, another deep purple song smoke on the bonnet, clutch on the sky , next beak down clutch gone for a six, no stock at service center, expected days of delivery... 1 week 4. Break is expected to get in to same boat again, expecting total recall by jan 2012, told by company representative 5. Music console again got screwd, stopped working again 6 months after first replacement, on 8.12.12,( 30000km) i was directed by the service person meet a mechanic at koramanagala bangalore. He did some soldering work for almost 2 hrs, showed me how fantastically its working. But it lasted only for one day !!!! again back to pavilion. Reported the complaint, but mahindra has no system of recording. finally got the entire unit replaced. 6. The next in the line was -break pad , given it to service station, they have replaced with the ver 2.0, as per them one more version is come already ver 3.0 not available with them so I had to get satisfied with of break pad ver 2.0 to add as per the service center they have also replaced the bushes since it was totally worn out. 7. Another outstation trip back home in the RAINY night 8.2.13, viper refused to move. I had to get back home with ancient system - tubaco leaf cleaning.( got it replaced after one whole day- as per the service center the electric system connected with the viper was also not working, any way they fixed it FREE of cost ( No value for time for Mahindra) 8. any suggestions from my friends which is gonna be next ??? Morale of the story: don't buy Xuv till they do all road testat ur cost....Or any other newly launched vehicle of Mahindra review: Look and Style good Comfort good Pickup good Mileage good Best Features design NO quality component Overall Experience BAD

    If you are looking for comfort, good reliability, and safety, please go for TATA Safari Storme. Few people say that its maintenance cost is high, but it depends upon hoe tou use your vehicle. If you are interested in a bit of premium segment SUV, its worthy to wait fr TATA HEXA to hit the roads soon. I personally consider TATA as value for money.
