4.once reached the destination ideal the engine for a minute and swithching off.
Also please advice me on the precautions during run in period of the new engine and also the gear ratio is any specific
Thanks in advance
All the 4 are good practices, especially pt's 1,2 & 4 for any turbo charged diesel engines because most of the Indian vehicles (in the price range of 5L - 30 L) have got Oil-cooled turbocharger. By idling you lubricate the turbo charger and by keeping it in idle for 2 min before switching off will help flushing out the oil from the central cartridge (its the heart of the turbo charger) thereby preventing solidified oil deposits.

1.Bluetooth does not connect randomly means suddenly gets disconnected and will not connect again untill the engine is swithched off and restart again.
2.Left front door is ratlling even when the engine is one and vehicle is stand still.The ratlling noice is very much audible.
3.Boot door will not close at first instance and requires more effort to close it.
4.Reverse cam display at times will not get turned on and after a while the infoitment system reboots again which shows the reverse cam display.
5.The distance on the reverse cam wont work randomly.
6.Power on button is not working and have to figgle around to turn it on or turn it off of the infotainment system.
7.Middle row seats have to be fixed as it is creating the noise (As if it is not fitted properly).
Anyways nearing the first service.Wish all gets sortered after the first service.
Please let me know if anyone had the same issues and are fixed.Mine is W10 model
Points 1,4 & 5 should get rectified in due course of time as it requires software updates from the vendor. You could be lucky if there is an update right away because for my XUV it took 3 updates over a span of 2 service to get the bugs(infotainment reboot & Hanging issue) fixed.
Points 2,3,6 & 7 can be fixed and as far as reverse cam is concerned it might be even due to some loose contact or hardware issue.
At times in my vehicle especially during rainy season when the reverse gear is engaged, the display splits horizontally in to two and the rear view is shown in two ways. The lower half shows the actual viewing angle and the upper half shows an inclined angles, it might even display numerous horizontal green lines.
All these are typical XUV niggling traits which you have to live with & I hope they have been rectified in the facelift.
