Mahindra XUV 300 W6 AMT: 2 breakdowns in less than 6 months!

I was to take the car to the service center, however again the ‘transmission malfunction’ error came on the dashboard and car was not starting. I again had to call RSA and get the vehicle to the service center by towing.

BHPian RakeshMX3 recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Here’s my initial ownership review after completing closed to 3000 kms in 3 months. I bought the XUV300 W6 AMT in Dec 2021 from Pune. The 1st month of ownership was great, the vehicle ran very well and certainly met my expectation. However, in the 2nd month the problem started. Due to some health issues of my mother, I had to come to my hometown Aurangabad, and since mid-Jan working from here. Below is the series of vehicle failure I experienced in the month of Feb:

Since March 1st, I haven’t received any issue, however, for 2 weeks I was extremely scared to take the vehicle anywhere. I am certainly worried and sceptical now on the quality checks that MnM has, a vehicle which is merely 2 months old, need to tow twice is utterly shameful for a company such as MnM. I had also contacted MnM customer care but all they did was fwd me to the service center.

Service experience MS vs MnM:

I owned Maruti Zen Estilo for 9 years and surely found it more professional compare to Mahindra. In MS service centers I felt I am dealing with an institution which has certain process checks, whereas at Mahindra I had to keep chasing the SAs, if I dont stand on his head, he will slow down .

Would I still recommend XUV300? absolutely! The engine is certainly a gem of a machine, its been 3 months now and it still puts smile on my face on open highways. Quick overtakes still needs some planning due to the AMT gear-shift pauses. In city, at ~10 km/hr speed, I still find the acceleration uneven to the throttle response, the best way here is to keep sufficient space between the next vehicle.

Attaching few images for your reference.
