DRACO is doing good IR buddy
So far my parents have made only one trip and the ODO stands at 337 kms. When we took delivery the ODO had 50 Kms because a day before delivery dealer brought our car from their Gurgaon branch. And rest 280 kms piled up from the the trip.
50% of the road was really good whereas remaining was literally full of pot holes and at places the road was really narrow and dad had to literally take the car off the road when a big and over loaded sugarcane trucks came from the other side.
Now talking about the drive, there were no squeaks, rattling or any kind of sound. brakes were working perfectly fine and no kind of grinding noise. I mean they my dad literally had nothing bad or i would say no issues to report.
The only thing which was not working was the GPS but that might be because my brother might be operating it in a wrong way, or it might be a glitch also but when they reach home and he tried operating it it was working fine.
So i will say as of now NO issues to be reported.
DRACO will be making one more trip to Faridabad and back soon probably next week or the following week. (Around 350-370 Kms).
Will update accordingly.
We need to upgrade our Infotainment system to 4.4 for using that app. The app looks really cool. But right now we don't have any android device (phone) in our family. They all iPhone or BB. Well i'll bring one with me when i come to India.
Also can you tell me what version of android should the device have?

My dad has booked one for him which is getting delivered on 12-12-12. Initially we booked silver color and when we visited the showroom again for some papers to the bank we found that the white color has the unique interiors (beig color interiors) which is way far better than other the black color. Dad and I fell for the interiors and both of us changed our mind and immediately changed our booking to white. For which the showroom representative agreed and asked us to give a letter on change of color.
and what a selection of date for taking delivery. That's pretty cool.
And yes white and black color have their own charm. Personally i like the XUV in white or black more comparing to other colors.
Only white has this unique beig color interiors while other have black and plum mixed. The interiors look just mesmerising and gives a look of a premium segment car!! But dont understand the Mahindra's logic of giving it only to white.

Congrats again for the S60 VOLVO is known for it's safety.
Still do pen down your initial experiences of XUV and will be waiting for your S60 review. BTW
: That's a great way of saying goodbye to this year and starting a new one, taking delivery of 2 cars.
