Mahindra & Mahindra has recalled over 100,000 units of the XUV700 SUV due to a possible wiring issue. The Indian automaker revealed in a regulatory filing that technicians at authorized dealerships will inspect the wiring routing in the engine bay of the recalled XUV700 SUVs to rule out the suspected defect.
The recall covers XUV700 SUVs manufactured between June 8, 2021 and June 28, 2023, totaling 108,306 units. This issue is related to a possible risk of wiring loom friction in the engine bay, which will be investigated and resolved at service centers at no cost to owners.
Additionally, Mahindra & Mahindra is recalling 3,560 units of the Mahindra XUV400 pure electric SUV manufactured between February 16, 2023, and June 5, 2023. These vehicles will be inspected for possible ineffective spring return action of the brake potentiometer.
The company has assured that the inspection and necessary repairs will be done free of cost for the affected customers. Mahindra will be personally reaching out to customers affected by the recall. While the XUV700 has been recalled in the past as well, this is the first recall for the Mahindra XUV400 since the introduction of the electric SUV.
