1.4 To Owner’s of a Mahindra Vehicle
When first driving the vehicle after long periods of non-use, you may
experience a temporary drive disturbance. This is a characteristic
of the tyres and should be no reason for concern. The condition
should correct itself within 5-15 kms. of driving. If the disturbance
persists, have the tyres checked by an Authorized Mahindra Dealer.

INTRODUCTION AND SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Driving and Alcohol
Driving Long Distances
Your driving ability can be seriously impaired by alcohol even if the
blood alcohol level is far below the legal minimum. Drunken driving
is one of the most frequent causes of accidents.
When you are driving over long distances, follow these tips so that
you have a safe journey;
Never drink and drive. Drinking and driving will lead to an
accident resulting in serious personal injury.
• Lack of sleep or fatigue will impact your ability to drive safely.
• Exercise your eyes by shifting the focus of your eyes to different
parts of the road.
• Use stimulating beverages such as coffee or tea.
Driving and Drugs/Medication
• Relax and stay calm.
Your driving ability can be seriously impaired through the use of
prescription or non-prescription drugs or medication (even cough
syrup). If you are taking any sort of drug or medication, be sure that
it will not affect your driving ability.
• Take breaks at regular intervals
Mobile Phones Warning
Use of electrical devices such as mobile phones, computers,
portable radios or other by the driver while driving is dangerous. In
exceptional condition if use of a mobile phone is necessary despite
this warning, use a hands free system to ensure that the hands are
free to drive the vehicle. Even hands free do not ensure that due to
distraction a accident will not happen
Protecting Our Environment
All of us should play our part in protecting our environment.
Judicious vehicle usage and ensuring hazardous waste disposal
(including cleaning and lubrication fluids) are important steps
towards this initiative.
Mahindra vehicles confirm to existing emission norms (standards).
Adhering to the periodical maintenance schedule and using
Mahindra genuine parts will help retain emission performance of
the vehicle and is a pre-requisite for emissions warranty coverage.

Please comply with the legal regulations concerning the use of
communication equipment in vehicles in your country.

A fuse is the most common electric protection device. The fuse is
placed in an electrical circuit, so that when current flow exceeds
the rating of the circuit/fuse, it blows off. The element in the fuse
melts, opening the circuit and preventing other components of the
circuit from being damaged by the over current. The size of the
metal fuse element determines the rating. Once a fuse blows off, it
must be replaced with a new one.
Switch the ignition and all electrical equipment OFF before touching
or attempting to change a fuse.
Replacement fuse must be with the same rating as the one you
have removed.
You can identify a blown fuse by a break in the filament. All
fuses except high current fuses are press fit.
Never touch fuses with bare hands. Always use a fuse puller to
remove and refit the fuses. The fuse puller is available in the IP
fuse box.
Be careful while removing the relay, do not shake or apply
excessive force to avoid damage to relay terminal.

Reduce your speed gradually, keeping a straight line. Move
cautiously off the road to a safe place well away from traffic. Park
on a level spot with firm ground. Stop the engine and turn ON your
hazard warning flashers.
2.5.3 Battery Mounted Fuse Box
The battery mounted fuse box is connected to the positive terminal
of the battery. Functionality of battery mounted fuse box is to
provide short circuit protection to alternator, power supply to main
engine compartment fuse box & electric cooling fan.
Firmly apply the parking brake. Have everyone come out of the
vehicle on the side away from traffic.
Never stop your vehicle in a traffic lane to change a tire. Keep
driving until you reach a safe location.
The jack provided along with the vehicle is to be used only for
changing a spare tire. It is never to be used to perform any other
maintenance or repair on the vehicle.

crushed by the vehicle if it falls off a jack. Keep by-stander’s
away from the vehicle.
Find level, solid ground that is clear of oncoming traffic. If you
cannot find a safe place to stop, it is better to drive on a flat tire and
damage the rim than it is to risk being hit by oncoming traffic.
After changing a flat tire, never store the tire or other equipment in
the passenger compartment of the vehicle. This loose equipment
could strike an occupant in the event of a sudden stop or collision.
Store all of these items in the proper place.

the jack touches the vehicle and begins to lift, re-check that it is
properly positioned. Raise it high enough ensuring the spare wheel
can be installed, but not to raise up above the ‘yellow’ line.
Remember you will need more ground clearance when putting on
the spare tyre than when removing the flat tyre.
• Raise the vehicle only high enough to remove and change
the wheel
• Usable extended height of jack is up to the yellow line/mark.
Do not raise the jack above the yellow line.
• Follow jacking instructions
• Do not start or run the engine while your vehicle is
supported by the jack
Never get under the vehicle when the vehicle is supported by
the jack alone.
W12B23
Make sure to set the jack properly in the jacking point. Raising
the vehicle with an improperly positioned jack will damage the
underbody of the vehicle or may allow the vehicle to fall off the
jack and cause personal injury.
Remove the wheel nuts. Lift the flat tyre straight off and place it
aside. Roll the spare wheel into position and align the holes in the
wheel with the bolts. Lift up the wheel and get at least the top bolt
started through its hole. Wiggle the wheel and press it back over
the other bolts.
Re-install the wheel nuts with the tapered end inward and tighten by
hand. Press the wheel inward and tighten the wheel nuts further.
• Use the jack only for lifting your vehicle during wheel
changing
• Do not raise the jack with someone in the vehicle
• When raising the vehicle, do not place any objects on top of
or underneath the jack

Never use oil or grease on the bolts or nuts. Doing so may lead
to over tightening of the nuts, wheel nut spanner slip, damage
the bolts and also may cause personal injuries. Also, nuts may
loosen and the wheels may fall off, which could cause a serious
accident. If there is oil or grease on any bolt or nut, clean before
installing wheel nuts.
Lower the vehicle completely and tighten the diagonally opposite
wheel nuts using the wheel nut spanner. Turn the jack handle
extension counter clockwise using the jack handle to lower the
vehicle, making sure the handle remains firmly fitted onto the jack
handle extension. Make sure the wheel spanner is securely
engaged over the nut. Tighten each nut a little at a time in the
diagonally opposite order as shown. Repeat the process until all the
nuts are tight. Do not use other tools or any additional leverage
other than your hands, such as a hammer, pipe or your foot.

Improperly or loosely tightened wheel nuts are dangerous. The
wheel could wobble or come off. This could result in loss of
vehicle control and cause a serious accident. Always make sure
all the wheel nuts are properly/securely tightened to the
specified torque.
When lowering the vehicle, make sure all portions of your body
are clear off the vehicle as it is lowered to the ground. Have the
wheel nuts tightened with the torque spanner to 120 Nm, as
soon as possible after changing wheels.
If you have rotated, repaired, changed your tyres or changed
the wheel rims, check the wheel nuts are still tight after driving
about 1,000 kms (Torque 120 Nm).

GENERAL
Put the wheel cap into position aligning the nozzle on the wheel to
the nozzle clearance on the wheel cover. Tap it firmly on the sides
with your hand to snap it into place.
Check the air pressure of the replaced tyre. If the pressure is lower
than recommended, drive slowly to the nearest service station and
inflate to the correct pressure. If it is too high, adjust it until it is
correct. Always reinstall the valve cap after checking or adjusting
tyre pressure. If the cap is not replaced, dirt and moisture could get
into the valve core and cause air leakage. If you lose a valve cap, buy
another and install it as soon as possible.
W12B26
2.7.2 Restore the Tools, Jack and Flat Tyre Securely
Restore the tools and jack back to their respective locations. Align
the spare wheel bracket to the centre hub of the wheel. Winch up
the flat tyre to the floor at the rear of the vehicle. Firmly tighten the
securing nut and put the floor carpet back. Double check to ensure
the tyre is snug against the rear floor of the vehicle. The spare
wheel bracket/cable may be damaged if the vehicle is driven with
the spare wheel loosely mounted.
W12B27
It is recommended to fix the flat tyre at the nearest tyre shop
and swap the spare wheel back. The wheel balance and
alignment differ from wheel to wheel which may lead to
difference in steering and braking.

can be thrown against the inside of the vehicle, against other
occupants, or out of the vehicle during a crash or emergency
stop
• Do not use any accessories on seat belts or modify in any way
the seat belt system. Devices claiming to improve occupant
comfort or reposition the seat belt can reduce the protection
provided by the seat belt and increase the chance of serious
injury in a crash
Never use a damaged seat belt system. A damaged seat belt
will not provide protection in an accident, resulting in serious
injury.
• Seat belt systems can be prone to abuse. They are not
indestructible. They must be handled with care to avoid damage
• Keep the belts clean and dry. Belt retraction may become
difficult if the belts and webbing are soiled. If they need cleaning,
use a mild soap solution or lukewarm water. Never use bleach,
dye, or abrasive cleaners. These chemicals will severely weaken
the belts
• Retractors in 3-point type seat belts retract the seat belts when
not in use. The inertia lock and coil spring allow the belts to
remain comfortable on users during normal driving. During
accidents or abrupt stops, inertia locks restrict the sudden
forward movement of the wearer
• An accident or emergency stop, can damage your seat belt
system, even if the accident is “minor”. Please have your

SEATS AND SEAT BELTS
Seat Belts - Patients
Persons with serious medical conditions should also wear a seat
belt. Consult your doctor for specific recommendations before
travel.
A pregnant woman should never wear the seat belt across the
stomach area. This could lead to serious injuries to the foetus
and/or the pregnant mother.
Seat Belts - Pregnant Women
Never wear twisted seat belts. Excessive forces will be
transferred from the belt to the wearer, in a collision, resulting
in serious personal injury.
Each seat belt is meant for use by one person only. Using one
seat belt for more than one person at a time is dangerous. The
seat belt will not be able to spread the impact forces properly
leading to serious injuries.
W12E22
Pregnant women must also wear seat belts. Consult your doctor
for specific recommendations.
The lap belt should be worn snugly and as low as possible over the
hips. The shoulder belt should be worn across your shoulder, but
never across the stomach area. When worn properly, the seat belt
will protect both the mother and the foetus in an accident or
emergency stop.
Never put a belt around a child being carried on the occupant's
lap. This could lead to serious injuries.
Seat Belt Usage is Necessary to:
• Reduce the possibility of being thrown from your vehicle
• Reduce the possibility of injuries to upper body, lower body and
legs during an accident
• Hold the driver in a position which allows better control of the
vehicle

SEATS AND SEAT BELTS
Children who are too large for child restraint systems should always
occupy the rear seat and use the vehicle seat belts. The lap portion
should be fastened snug on the hips and as low as possible and the
shoulder strap should be across the child's shoulder, not the neck
or face. If you are unable to position the strap across the child's
shoulder, the child should remain in a booster seat. Frequently
check the seat belt to be sure it remains snug and in position. A
squirming child could cause the seat belt to come out of position.
W32E055
5.6 Child Restraint System (CRS) (if equipped)
Always secure a child in a proper Child Restraints System in
accordance with age and size of the child as recommended by the
child restraint system manufacturer. Be sure to follow the Child
Restraint System (Child seat) manufacturer’s instructions for seat
belt routing.
Do not allow children to stand up or kneel on either the rear or
the front seats. An unrestrained child could suffer serious
injuries during emergency braking or collision.

6.3 Engine Immobilizer System
0862
0344
W12G09
The Engine Immobilizer System is a security system that prevents
the vehicle being operated by an unauthorized person. The Engine
immobilizer prevents the engine from being started unless it
recognizes signals from the correct coded key.
Your vehicle is equipped with left and right side child safety rear
door locks. When the lock mechanism is engaged, the rear door(s)
cannot be opened from the inside. The door(s) can only be opened
from the outside.
The system is automatically activated when the key is removed
from the ignition.
Turn the vehicle key in the slot provided in the side face of rear door
to activate/deactivate the child safety rear door lock.
In order to safeguard the theft protection system of the vehicle,
Mahindra will not supply EMS ECU (Engine Management
System - Electronic Control Unit), vehicle keys and the ICU as a
set for any vehicle.
If the rear doors are not operable from inside, ensure that the
child safety locks have been disabled.

LOCKS AND KEYS
6.3.1 Features of the Immobilizer System
• Prevents the vehicle being started by anyone not in possession
of the correct vehicle key
• The vehicle is automatically protected after the key is removed
from the ignition. At every ignition ON, if the vehicle does not
recognize the correct key code, the engine check lamp will
illuminate/blink and the engine cannot be started
Do not modify, remove or disassemble the engine immobilizer
system. Any unauthorized changes or modifications can affect
proper operation of the system and will void your warranty.
Do not attempt to install after market ‘push-button’ start
systems. These systems may compromise your vehicle’s
security system.
• The vehicle will not be protected until the key has been taken out
of the ignition
If the engine check lamp flashes or remains continuously
illuminated after the ignition being switched ON, there is a
system malfunction. Contact an Authorized Mahindra Dealer
immediately.
Inserting the correct coded key in the ignition and switching the
ignition ON, automatically deactivates the system. This enables the
engine to start.
In the event of the vehicle not starting with the correct key,
switch off the ignition and remove for a minimum of 1 minute
before attempting to start the vehicle again.

the wheel and injure your hand. This may also lead to loss of
vehicle control.
8.1 Steering
Your vehicle is equipped with power steering. Power steering uses
energy from the engine to decrease the driver's effort in steering
the vehicle. The power steering system will give you good vehicle
response and increased ease of maneuverability in tight spaces. If
for some reason the power assist is interrupted, it will provide
mechanical steering capability to steer the vehicle. Under these
conditions, you will observe a substantial increase in steering effort,
especially at very low vehicle speeds and during parking maneuvers.
Upon initial start-up in cold weather, the power steering pump
may produce noise for a short amount of time. This is due to
the cold, thick fluid in the steering system. This noise should be
considered normal, and it does not in any way damage the
steering system.
Continued operation with reduced power steering performance
could pose a safety risk to yourself and others. Have the vehicle
serviced at specified intervals or whenever a power steering
problem is noticed.
When driving in rough/off roads, hold the steering wheel rim,
do not hold the wheel spokes. A sudden bump can jerk/ turn
© Copyright Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd. 092017
Keep both hands on the steering wheel, with the thumbs
resting on the outer wheel rim.
To help prevent damage to the power steering pump:
• Never hold the steering wheel to the extreme right or the
extreme left for more than a few seconds when the engine is
running
• Heavy or uneven steering efforts may be caused by low power
steering pump fluid level. Check the low power steering pump
fluid level before seeking service from an Authorized Mahindra
Dealer
• Do not fill the power steering pump reservoir above the MAX
mark on the reservoir, this may result in leaks from the reservoir
If the power steering system breaks down (or if the engine is
turned OFF), you can still steer the vehicle manually, but it takes
more effort.
If the steering wanders or pulls, check for:
• Under inflated tire(s) on any wheel(s)
• Uneven vehicle loading

To tilt/adjust the steering wheel;
Ensure the vehicle is stationary and parking brake engaged
Pull the steering tilt lever down to unlock
Raise or lower the steering wheel to the desired position
Push the lever back up to its original position to lock the
steering
Adjust the seat according to the steering wheel position
An improperly locked steering wheel could cause loss of control
and lead to accidents. Never adjust the steering wheel while
driving.
8.3 Brakes
Your vehicle is equipped with disc brakes in the front and drum
brakes in the rear ( for XUV rear is also disc).
8-2
© Copyright Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd.092017
STEERING AND BRAKES
Disc brakes offer good braking capability and reduced stopping
distance. Wet brake discs result in reduced braking efficiency. After
a car wash or driving the vehicle through water, pump the brake
pedal mildly while driving to remove the film of water from the brake
pads.
Brake pads feature wear indicator. When the front brake pad is
worn, then there is an indication in the cluster; the brake lamp will
be ON (only in XUV). For all other vehicle the brake pads a metallic
squeal noise is heard indicating the pad wear. Have them replaced
immediately.
8.3.1 Parking on a Hill/Incline
If you have to park facing uphill, select first gear and turn the front
wheels away from the kerb. If you have to park facing downhill,
select reverse gear and turn the front wheels towards the kerb.
Always ensure that the vehicle is in gear and parking brakes is
engaged before leaving the vehicle.
8.3.2 Parking Brake
Driving with wet brakes is dangerous. Stopping distance
increases considerably when braking.
Dry the brakes by driving at very slow speed and applying the
brakes lightly until the brake performance becomes normal.
Even if the power assist (vacuum assistance) is completely lost,
the brakes will still work. The brake pedal would be much
harder than normal and the vehicle stopping / braking distance
will be longer than usual.
© Copyright Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd. 092017
To apply the parking brake, pull the park brake lever up as firmly as
possible. When the parking brake is applied with the ignition ON, the
brake warning lamp in the instrument cluster illuminates. To
release the parking brake, pull the parking brake lever up slightly,
press the release button on the lever tip and lower the parking
brake lever completely.
8-3
STEERING AND BRAKES
• The parking brake should always be applied when the driver
is not in the vehicle.
The brake warning lamp indicates only the parking brake status.
It does not indicate the degree of brake application. Be sure the
parking brake is firmly set when parked and the gear shift lever
is in gear. When parking on a hill ; first apply the Parking brake ;
after that shift the TGS lever to the P position (for AT) and gear
for MT. This will avoid the load on the transmission locking
mechanism may make it difficult to move the shift lever out of
gear.
Engaging the parking brake while the vehicle is in motion can cause
the rear wheels to lock up. You could lose control of the vehicle and
cause an accident.
Be sure the parking brake is fully disengaged before driving off.
Failure to do so can lead to brake problems due to excessive
heating of the rear brakes. It will also result in reduced fuel
efficiency; lowered brake pad life and rear brake squeal.
• The parking brake should be adjusted as per recommended
maintenance schedule
• Always apply the parking brake when leaving the vehicle, and
be certain to leave the transmission in gear. Failure to do so
may allow the vehicle to roll and cause damage, hit a
bystander resulting in personal injury.
• Leaving unattended children in a vehicle is dangerous for a
number of reasons. Children should be warned not to touch
the parking brake or the gear shift lever. Do not leave the key
in the ignition. A child could move the vehicle leading to
accidents

9.1 Heating, Ventilation And Air-Conditioning System
(HVAC)
The climate control system enables you to set the cabin at the
desired comfortable condition by controlling airflow, air intake and
temperature control. The HVAC system also helps in defrosting and
defogging/de-misting the windshield and windows.
Engine coolant is utilized to heat the cabin air. For cooling cabin air,
an air conditioning circuit based on the vapor compression
refrigeration cycle is used. The air conditioning system uses a
refrigerant along with a suitable lubricating oil. Although being nonozone depleting, the refrigerant is a greenhouse gas, hence once
allowed to escape in the atmosphere, it adversely affects the
environment by contributing to global warming/climate change.
Multiple vents are provided for distributing the air, being force
circulated by the HVAC blower, throughout the passenger
compartment. Various ducts supply air from the HVAC unit to these
vents having adjustable louvers.
skin or eyes may cause irritation and frostbite. It can also cause
suffocation, dizziness and loss of concentration. When mixed
with compressed air or certain other refrigerants, it may form
a flammable mixture. Never try to service the HVAC system
yourself which would involve refrigerant handling.
To ensure sufficient air flow and hence adequate HVAC system
performance, the air flow path should be kept free of
obstructions. Keep the system’s air intake, located near the
plenum appliqué, free of snow, leaves and other debris. Also
keep the area in front of the air vents free of any obstruction
inside the cabin.
There are two types of HVAC systems in your vehicle depending on
the variant.

foreign particles get trapped inside the filter. Clean air is then
circulated through the HVAC unit and into the cabin.
The HVAC filter gets clogged after long use. The clogged filter will
reduce the air flow rate, thereby the air-conditioning and heating
efficiencies will be drastically reduced. Even the windshield/
windows may begin to mist/fog-up easily.
To maintain optimum HVAC system performance, replace the filter
element as per recommended maintenance schedule. However
while operating in highly dusty or polluting conditions, the filter may
require early replacement. If the air flow seems to have
considerably reduced, get the filter replaced immediately.
To access the filter, open the glove box, remove the rubber pins on
both sides of the glove box lid. Un-clip the filter retaining clip and
remove the filter straight out. Discard the old filter and replace with
a new filter. Follow the reverse procedure for putting the filter back.
Do not clean or re-use old filter.
Never operate the HVAC system with the filter removed. This
may result in premature failure of system components.

HEATING, VENTILATION AND AIR-CONDITIONING SYSTEM (HVAC)
9.11 Air-Conditioner ON
Air conditioning system can be switched ON/OFF by operating ‘AC
LO’ and ‘AC HI’ switches for manual HVAC system. An indicator
lamp is also incorporated on the switches. The air conditioner is
operational only when both the engine and blower are running.
When the air conditioner is ON, air gets cooled and de-humidified
before being circulated inside the cabin. In hot weather conditions, it
will take slightly longer to cool the interior as compared to cooler
weather. Fuel consumption will be relatively higher if the vehicle is
being driven with the air conditioner.

• Occasionally the air conditioner might not actually be
functioning even when the LED on the AC switch remains
illuminated. This is to be considered as normal AC system
operation
• During extreme cold weather conditions, the air conditioner
may not function until the temperature of the air near the
evaporator rises above a pre-defined threshold
• When the air conditioner is ON, moisture is extracted from
the air. The resulting condensate is drained off from the
vehicle. It is therefore normal, if you see a small pool of water
under your vehicle
• The air conditioner should be operated at least for ten
minutes once every fortnight, even during winter months.
This allows the AC system components to get lubricated
periodically and ensures optimum system performance

On humid days, do not blow cold air on the windshield and side
window glass, the difference between the outside and inside
cabin temperature could make the fogging worse.
9.14.2 HVAC Points to Remember
• For quickly clearing the misted/fogged/frosted-up windshield,
set the blower speed to maximum. For quick defrosting, set the
temperature to extreme hot
• Once the windshield is cleared, keeping the air conditioner ON
leads to dehumidified cabin heating/cooling which helps in
keeping windshields and windows clear. Keep the fresh air mode
selected. If required, re-adjust the blower speed and
temperature control knob to maintain comfort. The temperature
of air coming out of the vents should neither be too hot nor too
cold
• Driving the vehicle for long with the air conditioner switched off
may lead to windshield or windows getting misted/fogged up
• Driving the vehicle for long continuously in the recirculation mode
may lead to windshield or windows getting misted/fogged up
• Do not blow cold air on the windshield and windows for long
during humid weather. It could make windshield/windows mist/
fog-up
© Copyright Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd. 092017
• When on a long drive during warm humid/rainy weather, once
cabin temperature becomes comfortable, shift to ‘AC LO’ mode,
if using ‘AC HI’ mode earlier. Adjust the temperature knob such
that air coming out of the vents is not too cold. Keep the fresh
air intake mode selected. Shift to any distribution mode other
than defrost mode. This will help in keeping windshields and
windows clear
• For defogging/de-misting/defrosting the side windows at the
front, select either Face or Face-Foot mode while directing air
flow towards windows by adjusting the louvers of side vents. All
other settings should be kept same as advised for windshield
defogging/de-misting/defrosting
• For heating the vehicle interior while windshield defogging/demisting/defrosting, select the Foot-Defrost mode. All other
settings should be kept same as advised for windshield
defogging/de-misting/defrosting
• For quickly defogging/de-misting/defrosting the outside of the
windshield, it is advisable to operate the windshield wiper/
washer for a few times intermittently
• If snow has deposited on the windshield, use an ice scraper to
remove the ice deposited before using the wiper
• In freezing weather, warm the windshield with the defroster
before using the windshield washer. Also use a washer fluid with
anti-freezing properties. This will help prevent the washer fluid
from freezing on your windshield
9-11
HEATING, VENTILATION AND AIR-CONDITIONING SYSTEM (HVAC)
• A dirty/contaminated windshield would make misting/fogging
worse. Always keep the inside and outside of the windshield
clean
• Reduced air flow because of a clogged HVAC filter or any other
obstructions in the air flow path may lead to in-adequate
defogging/de-misting/defrosting performance. If the air flow
seems to have considerably reduced, get the filter replaced
immediately. The air flow path should be kept free of
obstructions
• Reduced cooling performance from the air conditioner may lead
to inadequate defogging/de-misting/defrosting. If the cooling
effect seems to have dropped considerably, get the air

Refer to the “Jump-starting procedure” section in this manual.
If the engine still fails to start, contact an Authorized Mahindra
Dealer for assistance.
The idle speed is controlled automatically and it will decrease as the
engine warms up.
10.4 Stopping the Engine
Your vehicle is powered by a turbo diesel engine. Before turning the
engine OFF, always allow the engine to return to normal idle speed
and run for few seconds. This assures proper cooling and
lubrication of the turbocharger. This is particularly necessary after
any hard driving.
Observe the following when the engine is running;
• All warning lamps are OFF
• Low oil pressure lamp is OFF
After idling for a few seconds, release the parking brake, depress
the clutch, shift the gear shift lever to 1st gear, release the service
brake pedal, drive by releasing the clutch and depressing the
accelerator pedal simultaneously.
To reduce the risk of personal injury, before turning OFF the
engine and leaving the vehicle, always,
• Keep your right foot on the service brake pedal
• Turn front wheels towards the road curb
• Switch OFF the ignition, turn the key to the steering lock position
and remove the key
• Firmly engage the parking brake
10.3.1 Engine Idling - In Cold Weather
Avoid full throttle operation when the engine is cold and prolonged
idling at low ambient temperatures. Long periods of idling may be
harmful to your engine. Combustion chamber temperatures can
drop so low that the fuel may not burn completely. Incomplete
combustion allows carbon and varnish to form on piston rings and

shift into neutral when the vehicle is at a standstill for longer
durations with the engine idling.
The first few shifts on a new vehicle may be somewhat rough. This
is a normal phenomenon, and precision shifts will develop within the
initial few hundred kilometers of running.
10.5.1 Gear Shift Lever
The gear shift lever shifts the transmission into various gears. The
gearshift pattern is shown on the gear lever knob. The clutch pedal
should be depressed fully while shifting, and then released slowly.
Coasting the vehicle with the gear lever in neutral and engine
ON/OFF is not recommended. The steering and braking will be
very hard without power assist while coasting with the engine
OFF. In an event of panic braking, you will not have the power of
engine braking to slow down the vehicle. This may lead to
personal injury or accident.
Do not leave the vehicle with the gear shift lever in the neutral
position. Always engage the manual parking brake before
leaving the vehicle, to prevent any vehicle movement leading to
possible injury to a by-stander or damage to the vehicle.
W12K04
This position stops the transmission of power from the engine to
the drive axle. With the gear shift lever in neutral and brakes
released, the vehicle can move freely by pushing or towing. The
engine can be started in this mode. It is always recommended to
keep the brake pedal depressed in this position. It is advisable to
• Do not leave children unattended in the vehicle or with
access to an unlocked vehicle. Children could move the gear
shift lever, which could result in an accident or serious injury
• On slippery/wet road surfaces, never downshift in order to
obtain braking action. This could result in a wheel slip and
reduced vehicle control

from moving. Always set the parking brake in addition to shifting
the gear shift lever into gear. It is also recommended to turn
the front wheels towards the curb.
10.5.2 Recommended Gear Shifting Speeds
To avoid transmission damage, shift into or out of reverse gear
only after the vehicle has come to a complete stop and the
engine is at idle speed. It is recommended you wait
approximately for three seconds in neutral gear before shifting
into or out of the reverse gear.
Shift gears at suitable engine or road speeds to safeguard the
transmission components. Avoid driving in high RPM’s (>3000
RPM).
For brief stops, e. g. at traffic lights, keep the gear shift in neutral
and hold the vehicle with the brake pedal. For prolonged stops, it is
recommended to switch OFF the engine and apply the parking
brake.
Always depress the clutch fully before moving the gear shift lever
from the current position to any desired position. Perform up-shifts
or down-shifts one gear at a time, do not jump gears.
Uphill and Downhill Driving
Upshifting
To prevent the engine from laboring at a low RPM when driving
uphill gradients or with your vehicle heavily loaded, downshift when
necessary to maintain engine RPM within the best torque range.
Similarly while driving downhill, downshift to utilize the engine
braking in an optimum manner.

10.6.1 General Driving Precautions
• Always maintain the recommended inflation pressure in tires.
• Always drive at a safe speed appropriate for given driving
conditions. You must follow the speed limits.
• While backing up, keep a constant lookout for people, particularly
children, or other obstructions or hazardous material that might
be present behind the vehicle.
• Avoid loading any items on the roof that will raise the vehicles
center of gravity and make your vehicle more unstable.
Always observe the following precautions to minimize the risk of
accidents leading to serious personal injury or damage to your
vehicle.
• Before you drive your vehicle, please read this manual carefully.
• Before you start driving, check proper operation of the brakes
and steering system.
• If, while driving, you hear any strange noise or feel unusual
vibration, or if you have any concerns whatsoever, or if any
warning lamps illuminate or buzzers sound, park/stop the
vehicle in a safe location as soon as possible. Identify the cause
© Copyright Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd. 092017
• Loaded vehicles, with a higher center of gravity, may handle
differently than unloaded vehicles. Extra precautions, such as
slower speeds and increased stopping distance, should be taken
when driving a heavily loaded vehicle.
• Always slow down in gusty crosswinds. Because of its profile and
higher center of gravity, your vehicle is more sensitive to side
winds than an ordinary passenger car. Slowing down will allow
you to have much better control.
• When driving off-road or on rugged terrain, do not drive at
excessive speeds, jump, make sharp turns, strike objects, etc.
This may cause loss of control or vehicle rollover causing serious
10-7
STARTING AND DRIVING THE VEHICLE
injury. You are also risking expensive damage to your vehicle's
suspension and chassis.
• Maintain steering wheel control at all times, especially on rough
terrains. Sudden changes in terrain can result in abrupt steering
wheel motion. Make sure you grip the steering wheel from the
outside. Do not grip the spokes.
• If the vehicle goes from one type of surface to another (e.g. from
concrete to gravel/sand/mud/snow) there will be a change in
the way the vehicle responds, especially the way it responds to
steering, braking and accelerating inputs.
• Be extremely careful when driving on pavements made slippery
by loose sand, water, gravel, snow or ice.
• If your vehicle goes off the edge of the pavement, slow down, but
avoid severe brake or steering application. Ease the vehicle back
onto the pavement only after reducing your speed. Do not turn
the steering wheel too sharply while returning to the road
surface.
• It may be safer to stay on the apron or shoulder of the road and
slow down gradually before returning to the pavement. You may
lose control if you do not slow down or if you turn the steering
wheel too sharply or abruptly.
• In an unavoidable emergency situation where a sudden sharp
turn must be made, turn the steering wheel only as rapidly and
as far as required to avoid the emergency. Excessive steering will
result in less vehicle control. Additionally, smooth variations of
the accelerator and/or brake pedal pressure should be utilized if
10-8
changes in vehicle speed are called for. Avoid abrupt steering,
acceleration or braking which could result in an increased risk of
loss of vehicle control, vehicle rollover and/or personal injury.
Use all available road surfaces to return the vehicle to a safe
direction of travel.
10.6.2 Off Road Driving Precautions
• When driving off-road or on rugged terrains, never overspeed or
make sharp turns. This may cause loss of control or vehicle
rollover causing serious injury.
• Maintain steering wheel control at all times. Sudden changes in
terrain can result in abrupt steering wheel motion.
• Do not drive horizontally or diagonally across steep slopes, your
vehicle can tip over sideways. Driving straight up or straight
down is preferred.
• Drive cautiously to avoid vehicle damage from concealed objects
such as rocks and stumps. You should either know the terrain or
map-out your route before driving in the area.
• Always perform a maintenance inspection after each day of offroad driving that has taken you through rough terrain, sand, mud
or water.

STARTING AND DRIVING THE VEHICLE
10.6.3 Driving Through Water
Although your vehicle is capable of driving through shallow water,
there are a number of precautions that must be considered before
entering the water.
Never drive through still water that is higher than the bottom of
the axle hubs. Not following this instruction will allow water to
enter vehicle components causing internal damage to the
components, affecting driveability, safety, emissions and
reliability.
When driving through water, drive very slowly and at constant
speed, less than 8 kmph. Drive with accelerator pedal in OFF
and control speed using only the brakes. At higher speed waves
can be generated by the front of the vehicle. These water
waves may enter air intake, causing severe engine damage or
cause a vehicle to get stalled.
You must slow down while driving through shallow water.
Speeding may cause water to splash onto the windshield,
impairing your vision In extreme conditions you may get a water
wedge formation between the road and tyre causing loss of
control in the vehicle.
• Do not stop or shut OFF the engine while immersed in water. It
helps in preventing water getting inside the exhaust pipes.
• When backing down a ramp, do not allow the exhaust tail pipe to
immerse in water.
• Water can wash the grease from wheel bearings, causing
rusting and premature failure. It may also enter the differentials,
transmission and transfer case, reducing the oil's lubricating
qualities. If these are submerged in water, the lubricants should
be replaced as required.
• Water entering the transmission will cause deterioration in shift
quality, locking up of your transmission accompanied by vibration,
and ultimately damaging the transmission.
• Sand, mud/sludge that has accumulated in brake drums and
around brake discs may affect braking efficiency. This may also
damage brake system components. Wet brakes cannot stop the
vehicle as effectively as dry brakes. Drying can be improved by
driving the vehicle slowly while applying light pressure on the
brake pedal.
• When driving through water, traction or brake capability may be
limited. Always perform a maintenance inspection after each day
of off-road driving that has taken you through water.
• The ground under the water might not be firm which could result
the water being deeper than expected when driving the vehicle
through it.

STARTING AND DRIVING THE VEHICLE
10.6.4 Flowing Water
If the water is swift flowing and rising (as in storm run-off) avoid
crossing until the water level recedes and/or the flow rate is
reduced.
The flowing water can erode the streambed causing your vehicle to
sink into deeper water.
Determine the exit point(s) that are downstream of your entry point
to compensate for drifting.
10.6.5 After Driving Off-road or through Water
Off-road operation puts more stress on your vehicle than does most
on-road driving. Always perform a maintenance inspection after
each day of off-road driving that has taken you through rough
terrain, sand, mud, or water.
• After going off-road, it is always a good idea to check for damage.
Completely inspect the underbody of the vehicle for any
damages.
• Check threaded fasteners for looseness, particularly on the
chassis, drive train components, steering, suspension and
brakes. Retighten them, if required, and torque to the values
specified in the ‘Repair Manual’.
• We also recommend that the vehicle be checked at the
Authorised Dealer for any water entry into the transmission/
axle or the engine
Abrasive material in any part of the brakes may cause
excessive wear or unpredictable braking. You might not have
full braking power when needed leading to accidents. If you have
been operating the vehicle in off-road conditions, get the brakes
checked and cleaned as necessary.
• If any unusual vibration is experienced, check the wheels for
impacted material. Impacted material can cause a wheel
imbalance. Get it inspected/corrected as soon as possible.
• After driving through deep water, inspect your vehicle fluids and
lubricants (engine oil, transmission/transfer case/axle oils) to
ensure the fluids have not been contaminated.
• Check for accumulations of plants or bushes. or polyethylene /
plastic These could be a fire hazard. They might also hide
damage to fuel lines, brake tubes/hoses, etc.
• Inspect all the tubes/hoses and check for any fluid leakages.
• Get heat exchangers (radiator and condenser) cleaned.

10.7.1 Diesel Fuel Requirement
If you have accidentally filled the fuel tank with an incorrect or
non-approved fuel, do not start the vehicle. Contact an
Authorized Mahindra Dealer to have the fuel system drained
completely.
10.7.2 Fuelling during Winter
Use commercially available vehicular Ultra-low Sulfur Highway
Diesel that meets the BIS standard (IS 1460; 2010 BS IV / BS III
specification or equivalent). Information on diesel quality can
normally be found in the fuel pump. Please contact any filling station
personnel in case labels in the pump cannot be found.
Do not fill the fuel tank or mix the fuel with gasoline, alcohol
based fuels, kerosene, etc. This will damage the engine, fuel and
exhaust system components.
During freezing weather if the fuel is not winterized or is
insufficiently winterized, waxing/gelling may take place in the fuel,
leading to interruption in fuel supply to the engine. For smooth
functioning and reliable operation of the engine during cold weather
conditions, use winterized ULSD which is available at the filling
stations during winter months. Check with your fuel retailer for
further details.
Avoid inhaling fuel vapors and any skin or clothing contact.
Direct skin contact with diesel or the inhalation of fuel vapor
may affect your health.

Never overload your vehicle. Overloading can cause tyre failure,
affect vehicle handling, and increase your stopping distance,
resulting in an accident and/or personal injury.
Improperly inflated tyres can adversely affect vehicle handling
or can fail unexpectedly, resulting in an accident and/or
personal injury.
© Copyright Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd. 092017
Proper tire inflation contributes to a comfortable and safe ride.
Overinflating produces a jarring and uncomfortable ride. Both
underinflation and overinflation affect the stability of the vehicle and
can produce a feeling of sluggish response or over responsiveness
in the steering. Unequal tire pressures can cause erratic and
unpredictable steering response or may cause the vehicle to drift
left or right.
Improper inflation pressures can cause uneven wear patterns to
develop across the tire tread. These abnormal wear patterns will
reduce tread life resulting in a need for earlier tire replacement.
Under inflation also increases tire rolling resistance and results in
higher fuel consumption.
The proper cold tire inflation pressure is listed in the Tire Label
(Vehicle Placard), located on the front passenger side inner Bpillar.
11-3
WHEELS AND TIRES
11.4.1 Inspection and Adjustment Procedure
The tire pressure should be checked and adjusted, as well as
inspected for signs of tire wear or visible damage, at least once a
month. Use a good quality pressure gauge to check tire pressure.
Do not make a visual judgement when determining proper inflation.
Radial tires may look properly inflated even when they are
underinflated. At the same time, each tire should be inspected for
signs of tire wear or visible damage.
Inflation pressures specified on the placard are always cold tire
inflation pressures. Cold tire inflation pressure is defined as the tire
pressure after the vehicle has not been driven for at least three
hours, or driven less than 1 km after a three-hour period. Check tire
pressures more often if subject to a wide range of outdoor
temperatures, as tire pressures vary with temperature changes.
Tire pressures change by approximately 1 psi (7 kPa) per 7°C of air
temperature change. Keep this in mind when checking tire
pressure inside a garage, especially in the winter.
When it was new, the spare tire in your vehicle was fully inflated.
However, a spare tire can lose pressure over time. In order to avoid
being stranded, check the spare tire air pressure frequently.
11.4.2 Inflating Your Tires
At least once a month or before long trips, inspect each tire and
check the tire pressure with a tire gauge (including spare tire).
Inflate all tires to the recommended inflation pressure.
Under-inflation is the most common cause of tire failures and
may result in severe tire cracking, tread separation or
“blowout”, with unexpected loss of vehicle control and increased
risk of injury. Under-inflation increases sidewall flexing and
rolling resistance, resulting in heat buildup and internal damage
to the tire. It also may result in unnecessary tire stress,
irregular wear, loss of vehicle control and accidents.
Always inflate your tires to the recommended pressure even if it is
less than the maximum inflation pressure information found on the
tire. The recommended tire inflation pressure is found on the Tire
Label which is located on the front passenger side inner B-pillar.
Failure to follow the tire pressure recommendations can cause
uneven tread wear patterns and adversely affect the way your
vehicle handles.
If you overfill the tire, release air by pushing the metal stem in
the center of the valve. Then recheck the pressure.
Safe operation of your vehicle requires that your tires are properly
inflated. Remember that a tire can lose up to half of its air pressure
without appearing flat.
11-4
© Copyright Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd.092017
WHEELS AND TIRES
After inspecting or adjusting the tire pressure, always reinstall
the valve stem cap (if equipped). This will prevent moisture and
dirt from entering the valve stem, which could damage the
stem, resulting in an unexpected loss of tire pressure, an
accident and/or personal injury.
11.4.3 Radial Ply Tires
Avoid abrupt maneuvering and braking. This can cause tire
deterioration and lead to loss of steering or braking control.
11.4.5 Life of Tire
The service life of a tire is dependent upon various factors including
but not limited to;
• Driving style
• Tire pressure
Combining radial ply tires with other types of tires on your
vehicle will cause your vehicle to handle poorly, resulting in an
accident and/or personal injury. Always use radial tires in sets
of four. Never combine them with other types of tires.
Cuts and punctures in radial tires are repairable only in the
tread area because of sidewall flexing. Consult your authorized
dealer for radial tire repairs.
• Distance driven
Tires and the spare tire should be replaced after six years,
regardless of the remaining tread. Failure to follow this warning
can result in sudden and unexpected tire failure, leading to an
accident and/or personal injury.
11.4.4 Tread Wear Indicators (TWI)
Tread wear indicators are molded into the bottom of the tread
grooves. They will appear as bands when the tread depth becomes
1/16 inch (2 mm). When the indicators appear in two or more
adjacent grooves, the tire should be replaced.

Keep dismounted tires in a cool, dry place with as little
exposure to light as possible. Protect tires from contact with oil,
grease and fuels.

11.5 Tyre Rotation Recommendations
Do not use a tire, wheel size or speed rating other than that
specified for your vehicle on the tire placard. Combinations of
unapproved tires and wheels may change suspension
geometric and performance characteristics, resulting in
changes to steering, handling and braking of your vehicle. This
can cause unpredictable handling, stress to steering and
suspension components. You could lose control of the vehicle
or the tire can unexpectedly fail, resulting in an accident and/or
personal injury.
Type 1 - Applicable for all 5 Steel / 5 Alloy wheels
V
W12L09
Replacing original tires with tires of a different size may result
in false speedometer and odometer readings.
11.4.6 Snow Chains
Snow chains cannot be used on these tires.
In case of harsh winter driving conditions, it is recommended
using winter tires with the same specifications for better
stability, safety and performance.
11-6
Tyres on the front and rear axles of vehicles operate at different
loads and perform different steering, handling, and braking
functions. For these reasons, they wear at unequal rates and
develop irregular wear patterns.
Rotation will increase tread life, help to maintain mud, snow, and
wet traction levels, and contribute to a smooth, quiet ride. Follow
the recommended tyre rotation frequency for your type of driving.
Type 2 – Applicable for 4 Alloy wheels and Spare wheel with Steel rim
It is recommended rotating the tyres as per the “Maintenance
Schedule”.
© Copyright Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd.092017
WHEELS AND TIRES
The suggested rotation method is the “forward-cross” shown in the
diagram. The benefits of rotation are especially worthwhile with
aggressive tread designs such as those on On/Off-road type tyres.
V
W12L10
Rotation will increase tread life, help to maintain mud, snow, and
wet traction levels, and contribute to a smooth, quiet ride. Follow
the recommended tyre rotation frequency for your type of driving.
More frequent rotation is permissible if desired. The reasons for
any rapid or unusual wear should be corrected prior to rotation
being performed.
11.5.1 Changing a Flat tyre
11.5.2 Wheel Tightness
When you change a wheel, remove all rust and dirt at all locations
where the wheel contacts the wheel hub. Use a scraper or wire
brush to be sure that you remove all rust and dirt. A loose wheel
could have damaged or elongated the holes in the rim, or damaged
the rim/hub assembly. If any of the wheel studs or nuts are
damaged, contact the nearest Authorized Mahindra Dealer.
Always tighten the nuts in a crisscross sequence. Never use oil
or grease on your wheel studs or nuts.
Never over tighten the nuts on the wheel stud. You could
damage the stud or the nut.
Torque tighten the wheel nuts to the specified value at the
nearest Authorized Mahindra Workshop.
The tyres fitted in this vehicle meet the requirements of BIS and
they comply with the requirements under the Central Motor
Vehicles Rules (CMVR) 1989.

12.3 Vehicle Overheating
To prevent damage to the starter, do not crank the engine
for more than 15 seconds at a time. Wait 10 to 15
seconds before trying again.
If the engine stalls while driving
Reduce your speed gradually, keeping a straight line. Move
cautiously off the road to a safe place. Turn ON your hazard warning
flashers and check for any malfunction lamps in the instrument
cluster. Turn the ignition OFF, wait for approximately 90 seconds
and try starting the engine again. If the vehicle still does not start
contact an Authorized Mahindra Dealer.
If the needle in the temperature gauge in the instrument cluster is
all the way up to the H and/or the high engine coolant temperature
warning lamp is ON, your engine has overheated.
If the engine is getting overheated, the Engine Management System
reduces engine power substantially and may even shut the engine
OFF; it is dangerous to continue driving when the engine has
overheated. You need to first cool the engine down before starting
to drive again.
Follow the below instructions to cool the engine down
• Progressively reduce the vehicle speed and bring the vehicle to a
stop at the side of the road
If the engine stalls while running, the power assist for the
brakes and steering will not work. Steering and braking will be
much harder than usual.

EMERGENCIES
Now switch the engine OFF and carefully open the bonnet/hood to
visibly inspect the engine cooling system parts. Be cautious while
doing an inspection as vehicle parts will still be too hot. Verify that
the engine coolant level in the coolant recovery tank is maintained
between the 'Min' and 'Max' mark. Check for possible fluid leakages.
Check for damages to heat exchangers and connecting hoses. Also
verify that the radiator shrouds, engine fan blades and the engine
belt all are in good condition.
If any evidence of failure is observed, contact the nearest
Authorized Mahindra Dealer for help. In case, no system leakage/
failure is suspected, driving can be continued.
Either due to severe operating conditions or due to any system
leakages or failures, the engine can get overheated. However if the
engine is getting overheated repeatedly, even in normal operating
conditions, get the vehicle checked by an Authorized Mahindra
Dealer as soon as possible.
Refer to the 'High Engine Coolant Temperature' section under
the 'Features and Control' chapter for details.
If the high engine coolant temperature warning is ignored, the
engine shuts OFF abruptly to safeguard engine components
from overheating and consequent failure. Abrupt engine shutoff can lead to uncontrollable driving condition and accidents.
© Copyright Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd. 092017
Stay clear of hot and rotating vehicle parts while visually
inspecting the vehicle. The coolant inside the cooling system is
under high pressure and temperature. Never open the
pressure cap of the degassing tank when the engine is hot. Not
taking precautions may lead to serious injury to your skin/eyes.
For optimum performance of the cooling system you must
maintain the required coolant level and use only recommended
engine coolant.
12.4 Jump Starting
If your vehicle's battery has run down, you may be able to start the
engine by using a standalone booster battery or a vehicle with a
good condition battery.
But before going ahead with this procedure ensure that the battery
is the cause of vehicle not starting. To confirm this, few simple tests
can be conducted as follows;;
• Check the headlights - Are they dim or bright? If they are dim, it's
likely your battery is dead. If your headlights are bright, you do not
have a dead battery and a jump start may not help
• Try to start your vehicle -Does it turn over very slowly, or does it
crank quickly? If it cranks quickly, you do not have a dead battery
and a jump start may not help. If it cranks slowly, or not at all, you
probably have a dead battery

EMERGENCIES
Open the bonnet and locate the battery (near the left side fender).
Identify the positive and negative terminals.
• The positive terminal will be marked with a plus sign (+) and will
usually have a RED cable attached on it.
DO NOT LET THE VEHICLES
TOUCH EACHOTHER
• The negative terminal will be marked with a minus sign (-) and will
usually have a BLACK cable attached to it
Check the physical condition of the battery. Inspect batteries for
cracks, leaks or any other damage. If you find any of these things, do
not jump start the vehicle. Call Mahindra Road Side Assistance or
replace the battery. If the weather is very cold, remove the refill
caps and check the condition of the electrolyte. If it seems slushy or
like ice, do not attempt jump-starting until it thaws.
1. Park the working vehicle near the disabled vehicle. Park the
vehicle in such a way that the distance between both vehicle
batteries is as small as practical. Turn off the engine, radio,
lights, A/C, fans and all other electrical components. Make
sure that all of these things are OFF in the disabled vehicle, too

It may be necessary to remove the disabled vehicle’s
battery cables from the battery terminals and clean both
cables and terminals. Use a stiff wire brush to remove all
corrosion. Reconnect the cables to the battery terminals
and jump the vehicle.
Untangle and unwind your jumper cables. Like your batteries,
your jumper cables will probably have red and black cables and
will have heavy duty clamps to connect to the battery
terminals. You must make sure that the red and black ends of
your jumper cables never touch each other once they are
connected to the batteries; permitting them to do so can
result in serious arcing and/or damage to one or both
vehicles

Get the most from your vehicle with routine maintenance
13.1 General Owners Information
Routine maintenance is the best way to help ensure you get the
performance, dependability, long life and better resale value you
expect from your vehicle. This is exactly why we've put together this
Maintenance Section. It outlines the services required to properly
maintain your vehicle and when they should be performed. The
focus is on maintaining your vehicle while it's running great, which
goes a long way toward preventing major repairs and expenses
later.
Your vehicle has been designed for fewer maintenance
requirements with longer service intervals to save both your time
and money. However, each regular maintenance, as well as day-today care is more important to ensure a smooth, trouble free, safe
and economical operation.
It is the owner's responsibility to make sure the specified
maintenance, including general maintenance service is performed.
Note that both the new vehicle limited warranty and emission
control system limited warranties specify that proper maintenance
and care must be performed. See Service Coupon Booklet for
complete warranty information.
Where to go for service?
Mahindra technicians are well trained specialists and are kept up to
date with the latest service information through technical bulletins,
service tips and in dealership training programs. They learn to work
on Mahindra vehicles before they work on your vehicle, rather than
while they are working on it.
You can be confident that your Mahindra dealer's service
department does the best job to meet the maintenance
requirements on your vehicle reliably and economically.
Here are a few suggestions to help you get started on routine
maintenance:
• Familiarize yourself with your vehicle by going through your
Owner's Manual
• Take a few minutes to review this Maintenance Section
• Make it a habit to use this manual to record scheduled
maintenance in the Service Coupon Booklet
• Consult with your Authorized Mahindra Dealer for all your
vehicle's needs
13.1.1 Suggestions for Obtaining Service for your Vehicle
Prepare for the Appointment
If you have warranty work to be done, be sure to have the right
papers with you. All work to be performed may not be covered by

the warranty. Discuss additional charges with the service manager.
Keep a maintenance log of your vehicle's service history.
Prepare a List
Make a written list of your vehicle's problems or the specific work
you want done. If you've had an accident or work done that is not on
your maintenance log, let the service advisor know about it.
13.1.3 Warranty Information
Read the Warranty Information given in the ‘Warranty Information &
Maintenance Guide’ for the terms and provisions of Mahindra
warranties applicable to this vehicle. Mahindra genuine parts, fluids,
lubricants and accessories are available at any Authorized
Mahindra Dealer. They will help keep the vehicle operating at its
best.
Be Reasonable with Requests
If you list a number of items and you must have your vehicle by the
end of the day, discuss the situation with the service advisor and list
the items in order of priority.
13.1.2 Need Assistance?
It is recommended talking to an Authorized Mahindra Dealer
service manager first. Most matters can be resolved with this
process. If for some reason you are still not satisfied, talk to the
general manager or owner of the dealership.
If an Authorized Mahindra Dealership is unable to resolve the
concern, you may contact any Mahindra Customer Care executive.
They would need the following information:
Owner's name and address, owner's telephone number (home and
office), Authorized Dealership name, Vehicle Identification Number
(VIN), vehicle delivery date and mileage.
13-2
13.1.4 Protect your Warranty
Routine maintenance is not only the best way to help keep your
vehicle performing as intended, it's also the best way to protect
your warranty. Failure to perform scheduled maintenance specified
in the Service Coupon Booklet will invalidate warranty coverage on
parts affected by the lack of maintenance. We can't stress enough
how important it is to keep records of all maintenance. Damage or
failures due to neglect or lack of proper maintenance are not
covered under warranty.
Keeping maintenance records is easy with the service coupon
booklet
It's important to document the maintenance of your vehicle. For
your convenience to maintain records of service, the scheduled
maintenance coupons are provided in the service coupon booklet.
Every time you bring your vehicle in for scheduled maintenance, be
sure to present this booklet and certify the work. Also record the
date of service and mileage at the time of service. This will make
© Copyright Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd.092017
MAINTENANCE
record keeping easy and, should your vehicle ever require warranty
coverage, you will have all the documentation to show you've
properly maintained it.
13.1.1 Maintenance Interval
Mahindra establishes recommended maintenance intervals based
upon engineering testing to determine the most appropriate
mileage to perform the various maintenance services. This protects
your vehicle at the lowest overall cost to you. Mahindra
recommends that you do not deviate from the maintenance
schedules presented in this Maintenance Schedule.
13.1.1.2 Oils, Fluids and Flushing
In many cases, fluid discoloration is a normal operating
characteristic by itself, and does not necessarily indicate a concern
or that the fluid needs to be changed. However, discolored fluids
that also show signs of overheating and/or foreign material
contamination should be inspected immediately by a qualified expert
such as the factory trained technicians at your Authorized
Mahindra Dealer. Your vehicle's oils and fluids should be changed at
the specified intervals or in conjunction with a repair.
13.1.1.3 Chemicals and Additives
Non-Mahindra approved chemicals or additives are not required for
factory recommended maintenance. In fact, Mahindra
recommends against the use of such additive products unless
specifically recommended by Mahindra for a particular application.
Your vehicle is very sophisticated and built with multiple complex
performance systems. Every manufacturer develops these systems
using different specifications and performance features. That's why
it's important to rely on your Authorized Mahindra Dealer to
properly diagnose and repair your vehicle.
When planning your maintenance services, consider your
Authorized Mahindra Dealer for all your vehicle's needs.
13.1.1.4 Get the most from your service and maintenance
visits
Getting your vehicle serviced at an Authorized Mahindra Dealer
adds great value to your vehicle in number of ways. Hence, it is
recommended to service your vehicle at an Authorized Mahindra
Dealer only.

MAINTENANCE
13.5.3 Engine Oil Consumption
It is normal for engines to consume some engine oil during
operation.
• Apply the parking brake
• Open the hood. Protect yourself from engine heat
• Locate and carefully remove the engine oil level dipstick
Causes of consumption in a normal engine are as follows;
• Oil is used to lubricate pistons, piston rings and cylinders. Thin
films of oil, left over when pistons move in cylinders, are sucked
into the combustion chamber due to high negative pressure
generated when the vehicle is decelerating. This oil gets burnt in
the combustion chamber
• Oil is also used to lubricate the stems of intake valves. Some of
this oil is sucked into the combustion chamber together with the
intake air and is burnt there
• Engine oil consumption depends upon the viscosity and quality of
the oil, and upon the conditions in which the vehicle is driven. Oil
consumption will be more due to high speed driving and frequent
acceleration and deceleration. A new engine may consume more
oil since its pistons, piston rings and cylinder walls are not
conditioned
13.5.4 Checking/Topping the Engine Oil
W12N24
• Wipe the dipstick with a clean cloth. Insert the dipstick fully, then
remove it again
• If the oil level is between ‘Min’and ‘Max’marks, the oil level is
acceptable. DO NOT ADD OIL
• If the oil level is below the Min mark, add enough oil through the
oil filler neck to raise the level within the ‘Min’ and ‘Max’ marks.
Wait for few minutes after every top up for the oil to settle down
before checking the level.
• Make sure the vehicle is on level ground
• Turn the engine OFF and wait a few minutes for the oil to settle
down into the oil sump

MAINTENANCE
13.5.5 Checking/Topping Engine Coolant Level
• Park the vehicle on flat-horizontal surface. Keep the parking
brake fully engaged. Shut-off the engine
W12N25
• Oil levels above the ‘Max’ mark may cause engine damage/poor
performance.
• Put the dipstick and the oil filler cap back and ensure it is fully/
properly seated.
W12N26
• Wait till the engine cools down and hence coolant temperature
comes down to normal room temperature
To avoid possible oil loss and injury due to hot blow-by gas, DO
NOT operate the vehicle with the engine oil level dipstick and/or
the engine oil filler cap removed.
• The coolant level should be between ‘MIN’ and ‘MAX’ marking
provided on the coolant recovery tank
• In case the coolant level is below the ‘MIN’ marking, the coolant
should be topped-up
Draining/Changing of engine oil should always be done by an
Authorized Mahindra Dealer.
• The coolant should be filled till the level rises above the 'MIN' but
remain below the ‘MAX’ marking on the coolant recovery tank
• However if the Coolant Recovery Tank is found to be near empty,
it is recommended that the system be checked at an Authorized
Mahindra Dealer

• Do not use household cleaning products or glass cleaners, which
can stain and discolor the fabric and affect the flame retardant
abilities of the seat materials
• Do not use cleaning solvents, bleach or dye on the vehicle's
safety belts, as these actions may weaken the belt webbing.

clothing comes in contact with leather upholstery. If this occurs,
clean the leather immediately to avoid permanent staining.
13.9.11 Underbody

MAINTENANCE
13.10 Air Conditioning System Maintenance
Your vehicle's air-conditioning is a sealed system. Any major
maintenance, such as recharging should be done by a qualified
technician. However, you can do a few things by yourself to make
sure the air conditioning works efficiently.
Run the air-conditioning system at least once a week, even during
the cold weather months. Run it for at least ten minutes with the
engine running at normal operating temperature. This circulates
the lubricating oil contained in the refrigerant.
Whenever you get the air-conditioning system serviced, make
sure the service facility uses a refrigerant recycling system.
This system captures the refrigerant for re-use. Releasing the
refrigerant into the atmosphere may cause damage to the
environment.
system lubrication to minimize the possibility of compressor
damage when the system is started again.
It is recommended storing the vehicle in a covered, clean, dry, well
leveled, ventilated and closed place.
13.12 Winter Care
13.12.1 Dealing With Ice
Make sure you have window ice scrapers and de-icers for the locks.
When you're stuck, having a small shovel is useful to dig out of the
snow. The weight of a bag of sand in the trunk will give added
traction in rear-wheel drive vehicles and can be used to sprinkle on
the snow and ice to gain better traction. And don't forget personal
protection such as a warm coat, hat, gloves and a blanket, in case
you get stuck in a storm.
13.12.2 Keep Enough Fuel in the Tank
13.11 Vehicle Storage
If you are leaving your vehicle for more than 2 weeks you may want
to take stopping to protect your battery. Disconnect the negative
cable from the battery. Anytime you store your vehicle, or keep it
out of service (i. e. vacation) for two weeks or more, run the air
conditioning system at idle for about five minutes in the fresh air
mode and high blower speed setting. This will ensure adequate
13-22
Never let the fuel level in the tank drop below the half-full mark. A
sudden storm with unexpected heavy rains could leave you
stranded for hours. Having adequate fuel supply will allow you to idle
the engine from time to time to keep warm.

MAINTENANCE
Do not:
13.12.4 Exterior
• Tap the ice on the window to crack it or chip it for a good place
to start scraping. You could end up cracking more than the ice
and end up with a cracked or shattered windshield/ window
Wash and wax your car to provide an extra layer of protection to
your paint.
• Pour warm or hot water on the windshield to melt ice. This will
crack your windshield
13.12.5 Vinyl and Rubber
13.12.3 During Winter Storage
Use a good conditioner on all vinyl and rubber parts to prevent from
drying out.
Start the engine occasionally, here are a few pointers to keep in
mind;
13.12.6 Interior
• Run it in a well ventilated area. Carbon monoxide can build up
quickly
Clean the glass, shampoo the carpets, dig in between the seats to
see what's there, clean the upholstery in all nooks and corners.
• Run for a minimum of 20 minutes to allow the engine to come
up to the normal operating temperature. This will allow the oil to
circulate and will also open up the thermostat so that your
radiator anti-freeze circulates as well
• Start up the air conditioner and/or heater and run both for 10
minutes or so. Again, circulating fluids is essential for good life of
the system
• If your vehicle has power steering, you may want to turn the
wheels a few times to keep the fluids flowing

13.12.7 Engine
Check all hoses and wires to make sure everything is in good
condition and replace any that need to be. The last thing to do is to
make sure the internal components of the engine remain lubricated
and don't corrode.
If the engine is being started after a very long period of non-use,
warm up the engine at an idle speed for 2-3 minutes before
driving the vehicle.

MAINTENANCE
13.13 Bulb Replacement
13.13.1 Head Lamp Bulb Replacement
The head lamp bulb can be replaced without removing the head
lamp assembly from the vehicle. The head lamp assembly has
been removed here for illustration purpose only.
To replace the head lamp bulb;
• Ensure ignition is switched OFF
• Remove rear dust cover from the head lamp
• Remove the bulb assembly with connector from the head lamp
by unlocking the wire clamp
• Detach the bulb assembly from the wiring connector near to the
head lamp
• Insert the connector into the new bulb (of the same wattage),
and follow the reverse procedure to assemble the bulb assembly
in the headlight assembly
• Clamp the bulb assembly by wire clamp properly
Do not touch the new bulb with your fingers. Oil contamination
will severely shorten bulb life. If the bulb comes in contact with
any oily surface, clean the bulb with rubbing alcohol.
To avoid burning yourself, do not replace the light bulbs when
they are hot. Halogen bulbs have pressurized gas inside and
are to be handled with special care. Mishandling it may cause
the bulb to burst or shatter. Hold the bulb with its metal/plastic
holder/base and do not touch the glass part with bare hands.
Using bulbs with units of higher output capacity/wattage is
illegal and may damage your vehicle’s electrical system.
Replacement bulbs must meet the specification of originally
fitted bulbs.
