Hi, I also took my took my XMA on Oct 18th, from Tejaswi Motors, Hyderabad and also did not get any freebies except 5 ltrs of fuel.
In the 70 KM I drove, I am already faced with couple of AMT gearbox issues.
1) In my apartments, I had to park my vehicle directly facing the wall, and as I was not superstitious, I directly reverse my car whenever I have to take my car out (many like to go fwd first, but not me). Till now every time, like 4 or 5 times I guess, whenever I put Zest XMA into 'R' it still shows 'N' only, and then I had to move the gear lever to 'A' and stay couple of seconds, then move it 'N' stay couple of seconds and then when I move it back to 'R' then only it gives me that 'bing' sound and recognizes the gear shift correctly to 'R'.
In fact, I just read on another forum that a guy who bought XMA on the same day 18th Oct in Bangalore is also facing with a similar issue. He explained that when he is changing from 'R' to 'A', it is kept showing as 'N' for him and so he had to move the gear lever from 'A' to 'N' and then back again to 'A' then only it shows properly as 'A'.
I had read many reviews before buying XMA and to my utter surprise only after buying the car and facing with this issue, I had come across that someone had already reported this issue on TAI
on 27th Sep itself, you can find it in the following post. http://www.theautomotiveindia.com/fo...tml#post408564
2) 2nd problem is a very important problem for me or in fact in anyone else is facing this......
When we are going in either 3rd or 4th gear and had to stop the car rather quickly (not a complete sudden break/halt but quickly), then the gear is going from 3->2->1->N...... yes it is actually going to Neutral though the gear lever in still sitting pretty in 'A'. Then what happens, obviously the car does not move even if you try to rev hard. So I had to move the gear to 'N' and then back to 'A'.....no even then it is not changing to 'A' with 1st gear. Only after I try couple of times like moving the gear back and forth between 'N' and 'A' only then it changes the gear to 'A' with 1st gear.
Surprisingly I did not face with this issue in the first 25 KM. After that in the next 15 KM I faced this 4 times.
Today (Oct 20th) when I was taking my car for the first time to office, gosh! in the first 4 KM it moved to neutral 3 times....and annoyingly once at U-turn and once at Red-light and people at the back were cursing me as I could not change it immediately to 'A'. But, lucky me! it did not give me the trouble for the next 13 KM until I reached office.
I immediately called in informed my dealer and told him that I will try for one more day and if it still gives me the same trouble, I told him that I will dump the car at his showroom.
So, my question to you is, did you face with any of these two problems?
