In the midst of a long waiting time for the deliveries of the Mahindra XUV700, one guy gets confused after his SUV arrives at the dealership prior to the scheduled date.
It is not every day that a potential Mahindra XUV700 buyer gets an opportunity to get the SUV before the scheduled delivery date. But then, it could happen too. After receiving over 70,000 bookings for the XUV700, Mahindra can’t help but give delivery dates to a lot of customers somewhere in 2023. The semiconductor chip shortage is to take the blame for that. Be that as it may, here is a unique case of the early arrival of the SUV at the dealership and the owner doesn’t know what to do.
XUV700 Buyer Gets The SUV Before Delivery Date
A certain Rachit Raut shares this post on the Mahindra XUV700 Club India page on Facebook. He had booked the SUV on the 8th of October and received the delivery date in February 2022. However, he received a phone call from the dealer informing him that the vehicle has arrived. However, Rachit was not prepared for it as the car buying process involves a lot of procedures. He tells the dealer that he doesn’t want the SUV at the moment and will wait until Feb. However, the dealer tells him that then Rachit needs to give it in writing that he doesn’t want the SUV. Now, the confusion is if he does that, will they cancel the original booking of the SUV or the scheduled delivery will take place in Feb itself? We honestly think that this is something that needs to be discussed with the dealer properly. There are no definite answers here.
