I am facing issues with clutch and gear for my XUV5OO(W4 Model). The clutch is not coming up and getting stucked in between, also the gear shift has become hard. My car is new only, run only for 19000 odd kms, purchased in Dec’14 so cannot believe the clutch plates has gone down this soon.
I have read lot about the same clutch problems in XUV cars and the cars being recalled due to the same reason(Autoportal.com, MADrives.com, etc.) The problem is very well known to Mahindra but service centres are mudding the charges over the customers.
I consulted Harbir Automobiles(Chandigarh) and the representative has sent me the following estimate.
Estimated amount of your xuv 500 clutch job is around 19500 which includes
Clutch set = 10000
Slave cylender= 4700
My car is under warranty but still the representative is saying the fault will not be covered under warranty. I cannot believe paying up such a huge amount for a newly bought car which is still under warranty. I am very surprised and disappointed with their words and not able to think what should I do. Request you to please look into the matter and guide me as what should I do.
