Though the aria is a flop and xuv is hit according to market standard .i myself won't tough the xuv as of now it has way way too many issues then aria.
One gentleman from other forum has made a good hard work to list all prevailing issues in xuv and the list is quite overwhelming makes me wonder if the xuv is real vfm
or real value for pain . Have a look-----
Here's my analysis of all the data:
Total 177 issues reported by 35 owners. That means average 5.06 issues reported by each owner.
68 - sort of unique issues. 32 unique issues with more than one occurance. The remaining 36 unique issues are faced by only one owner each (so could be one-off).
21 owners (out of 35) faced some or the other issues with the infotainment system.
17 owners not very happy with the brakes because of the noise and/or the braking effectiveness.
17 owners not very happy with the steering/wheels because of alignment, leakage and noise issues.
16 owners had some or other sensor malfunctioning (Security alarm and TPMS warning going off w/o reason have been most common).
Only 1 or 2 complaining about the engine responsiveness and the mileage
Around 10 owners complaining about rattles
Umpteen number of brake-pads have been replaced. 1 clutch assembly, 1 right front suspension, 1 transaxle, 1 thermostat, 1 water-pump, a couple of speakers, a couple of steering racks, a couple of headlight units, 2-3 tyres and multiple nippon units have been replaced.
At least 7-8 newer versions of the infortainment system s/w have been released.
A couple of instances of vehicle refusing to start temporarily.
No full-blown breakdowns reported by any ****ians, but multiple sightings of XUVs on flatbed-towtrucks. One unconfirmed report about a enire wheel coming off.
Only around 20 issues (out of 177) have been satisfactorily resolved. At the same time, most owners are happy with the responsiveness from M&M and A.S.S. Request owners to update any resolved issues at the earliest.
