Mahindra XUV700 and XUV400 Recall

In the history of the XUV700, there have been prior instances of recalls, highlighting Mahindra’s dedication to ensuring customer safety. However, the XUV400 is facing its first recall since its introduction. Mahindra’s commitment to safety is underscored by this recall, which applies to vehicles manufactured between June 8, 2021, and June 28, 2023, for the XUV700.

The primary objective of this recall for the XUV700 is to address the potential risk of an abrasion cut occurring in the wiring loom, which could lead to elevated heat levels within the wiring harness due to excessive current draw.

The inspection procedure entails a comprehensive assessment to identify any damage or malfunctions, followed by appropriate measures to address and rectify the components as needed.

Mahindra’s commitment to ensuring a hassle-free experience extends to its communication strategy. The company is diligently communicating with XUV700 and XUV400 owners to apprise them of the issue and the subsequent actions being taken.
