somendro's review on Mahindra XUV500 W6 1.99
Year of Manufacture : 2015 | Driven no. of Kms. : 5000
- Pros: I liked the looks and design.
- Cons: Mahindra & Mahindra are still not ready or matured to manufacture such SUV's , there are defects in the vehicle. Unnecessarily putting customers at high risk. Don't buy this car there are lots of problems in the vehicle. The top management people of Mahindra & Mahindra aware of the problems , they are not able to rectify the problem. You will end up loosing money and ruin your happiness.
I purchased Mahindra XUV 500 last year and just completed 480km, received recall of my vehicle from Mahindra & Mahindra not sure why. After they gave back from recall one fine day while driving the vehicle on highway suddenly clutch failed and my family including my two small kids escaped from accident. So i called up customer care and they towed my vehicle to service center. I gave complain to Mahindra customer care against this incident and requested regional service manager to repair it properly as this is very dangerous. They have assured me they will repair properly and give it back after testing. After two weeks they returned the vehicle and i was happy that they have repair it properly. But unfortunately while me and my brother driving on highway the same problem occurred again after driving few kilometers , suddenly the clutch become free and the engine stopped right in the middle of road. Very lucky that we were driving slowly at 20km/hr at that time otherwise we would have had severe accident. After this second incident now i lost my confidence driving this vehicle and I will not be able to drive this vehicle again. I suspect there is manufacture faulty in the vehicle, Mahindra's service engineers are not able to rectify this problem. I raise this concerns to the VP of customer care of Mahindra & Mahindra, regional manager head and requested them to refund my money or replace with new vehicle , they are not willing to do that. Instead they are saying that they will repair again and give it back to me. But now even if they rectify the problem and repair i won't be able to drive this vehicle, because from the past two incidents I am scare to drive now. I wasted my hard earned money buying this over priced useless vehicle. Now , not knowing what to do. Once you have purchased the vehicle , there is no one to help you. Their top management people are deaf they don't care to address your concerns. So think twice before you buy.
