Pros Good Performance,Comfort
All over I like the car. It is easy to ride as all its corners can be easily seen from driver seat. It is very powerful even loaded. It has good fuel economy and very reliable engine. My car has run about 3.25 lakh kilometres and still its engine is fine. Only thing missing in it is comfort, its little less comfortable. Overall this car is value for money car.

Pros Great Looks,Good Performance,Fuel Efficiency,
I am using bolero zlx for last one year.I believe bolero is the best option for off road driving.The zlx version contains an extra digital meter contains mileage information and the current gear position of the vehicle.I am getting an average mileage of 14 to15 km after first service i think which is good. If you are trying for a 7 seat vehicle with off road driving facility bolero is the best option.The power steering provided is very comfortable for driving.You can drive through bad roads with confidence with your bolero. The signal system takes a small delay in detecting the acceleration change.This is a major drawback new bolero

Pros Great Looks,Sit in some other vehicle & see Bolero coming towards you from front. It will give you shivering.
Cons Average Interiors,The interior they trIed to improved was failed totally. Very very cheap plastic work
I had purchased mahindra bolero zlx on February 2012. The interior they tried to improved was failed totally. Very very cheap plastic work, not going with Mahindra Boleros toughness. After purchasing, first day only I faced the below issues- Lots of sound coming from Break (when ever I am using break), Sensors not working; always showing fuel tank is empty (showing the signal on digital board ),continuously voice assisting while driving saying that "your bolero is running on reserve fuel" that will be shameful for us when some of our guests are in our vehicle. they may think we are not filling diesel in our car, though the fuel tank is full. More over, mahindra customer service is too bad. Lots of, as, first thing they need to improve the customer service and satisfaction. They need to understand, when somebody purchase a car , the kind of expectation customer could have. Apart from increasing market and sales, they should think how to maintain their own reputation.

Pros Good Performance,Comfort,
Cons Average Interiors,
One of the best family vehicles in the market. I am truly impressed with the Bolero ZLX. It has provided good comfort on long drives and is a pleasure to drive everytime. It is a good vehicle with good features. The interior quality can be better but i am happy with my vehicle. I went to my native village and everyone liked the car. It is big and spacious for many people to sit inside and also to carry luggage.
