Maybe alloys wheels were changed or some tampering done.
I dont find any reason for wheels to come off for a 1500km car. no matter if it is mahindra or any other car.
as a matter of fact lot of things goes inside the hub to hold wheels in its place.

Oops! The Cheetah lost a leg!:eek:

Its pretty common to hear about some electronic niggles or sensor failures in Mahindra vehicles, but its first time I am hearing such a serious issue in their vehicle.

Is this due to Chinese origin of the XUV?[thinking]

@Silver Streak: Hope your friend is doing well after the incident.

It might have shocked him to go under such situation.

Cmon Xover lets hear more of his friends experience, rather than concluding.

There are certain things that comes to my mind.

Someone might have tried to stole the tyre at the end moment they have left as it is, or some one might have loosened the nuts to make a disaster to happen.

Until and unless someone have meddled with it, its not a toy car to fall.

That's why during every long drive i inspect the tyres, nut bolts are holding in their proper place.

And i will be nervous esp if i have fitted the tyre after a puncture, hoping it won't come off.
