Just bought the Beast about a month ago. Asked the sales dude for owner’s manual but he had no clue. Oh well- off we go. Found the manual and spare keys under the seat when we got home- joy! Also found the MSRP sheet and get this, a PRE-DELIVERY CHECK SHEET that was IGNORED!!

This forum is awesome. Somewhere I read about loose fastners and low fluids. So doing a go over before our coming trip, I had to add:

16oz to front differential
12oz to transfer case
14oz to transmission

The rear dif had an OX added so that was OK

Point is, Mahindra has laid out a predelivery process and my dealer did not do the inspection. Had it not been for this forum, think I’d be SOL. Thanks Everyone!

Hope like heck no damage occurred

Now I need to inspect vent tubes :(

None of those would have been low enough to cause any damage. The transmission holds 67 oz, front diff 61 oz and the T-case 54 oz.

Mine was the same they handed me the check list and it wasn’t touched. I trailered it home. Brought it into the shop and went over everything stuff not tight, about ever fluid was low. Mine is an 2018 I chalked it up to new product new employees. With all that said I love the thing. I bought a new Harley about a month before getting my Roxor if I would of got the Roxor first I wouldn’t own the Harley.

Glad I saw this I checked and both differentials were low and so was transfer case. I never would have thought to check this since I have not gone through any water. Does anyone know if transmission fill is same as transfer case? As in do you fill until starts to drain from fill hole?

Trans is same as t case. Fill till comes out. Both use same fluid. 80w90 GL4. Autos are like a car with a dipstick.

I wish I had seen these posts 2 weeks ago... I bought mine new and 6 days into it I had my wheels lock up on me. Turns out there was less than a pint of fluid in the transfer case. After fishtailing all over and nearly flipping it, I had to have it towed to a shop nearby for repair. Thankfully they are going over everything to make sure something like this doesn't happen again.

Please check everything after purchase.

Are you footing that bill or is the dealer you bought it from paying?
