As XUV has been released all over India, hope the next service you can get it done at Karnataka Agencies. Btw
how is the weather in Mangalore currently?
Wolverine is doing fine (crossed 6.5k on the odo)except for a small indentation in the plastic part of the rear bumper which is the result of a chevy spark rear ending the XUV ( the elderly gents in the spark were distracted by the young urban scenery i guess
I have removed the 3M sunfilms from the XUV myself and it does not make much of a difference since the XUV AC is pretty powerful
The mileage calculated by tankful to tankful is now 10 kpl with 50/50 city/highway driving
1st service was carried out at sireesh auto bangalore in may and total cost was Rs 2311/- only but i had to spend Rs 23000/- for 2 days stay and shopping in bangalore for family
. Some of the niggles were fixed and software updated.
The alarm getting activated spontaneously has stopped
The entertainment system does not hang now
The doors are all fine now(no unlocking problems)
The right orvm hitting the window beading in closed position has been fixed
The remote control for the Entertainment system given with the XUV at the time of delivery never worked even after changing the battery and on complaining they found out that i was given the remote of a W6 system.It was replaced with the W8 remote at the time of 1st service. No wonder it did not work.
Niggles not/cannot be fixed
The remote for lock/unlock has a very short range and sometimes need to be pressed 3 to 4 times even when standing next to the XUV. problem not rectified even on complaint at 1st service
Had complained of the bad ride quality over rough roads and was told that all XUVs are like that
Thankfully now that the XUV has been launched all over india i can get the future servicing done at Karnataka Agencies Mangalore itself.
The Rain God is playing hide and seek in Mangalore. Just the occasional drizzle during daytime and brief downpour during the night here in Mangalore so far.
Found out that M&M are trying to pull a fast one with the 3 days 2 nights stay at club mahindra which was given to XUV owners as part of purple club. I tried to register the code of the holiday voucher and got the message that it is no longer valid so called up club mahindra helpline and was told that the voucher has to be registered within 1 month of date of issue which is the date of purchase of XUV.Since I( and many other XUV owners) received the Purple club package more than a month after purchase of XUV this was not possible. I did not purchase the XUV for the sake of a 2 day vacation but i feel that mahindra should not have issued the holiday vouchers if they had no intention of honoring them
