Vlogger Shares Issues With Mahindra Thar
She mentions that there are weird noises coming from the roof and the A-pillar of the SUV. In addition to that, she shows creaking noise from the gearbox, the AC vents automatically throw air at the feet despite choosing the face option, the brake pedal takes a little time to come back to its original position after the driver applies the brakes, even though the wheel balancing and alignment has been done, the car automatically keeps steering toward the left side and the low beam and high beam light functions have been swapped in installation. These were the issues that were bothering the YouTuber as she brings the SUV to the service centre.

Now, she mentions at the end of the video that this doesn’t mean that the SUV is problematic. In fact, she says, that Thar is the best in the segment and in terms of capabilities. She has driven the SUV for 15,000 km and even done some tug-of-war stunts with the SUV. That could be the reason why there are these cabin noises. This is an honest disclaimer from the vlogger which ensures that people are not misled by the video. She considers the Thar to be the best in terms of what it offers at this price point.
