A disgruntled Land Rover customer has parked his Range Rover Sport HSE outside Lookers’ Land Rover showroom in Colchester, Essex, emblazoned with a series of warnings about Land Rover’s build quality.
Large yellow vinyl letters along one side of the car read: “If you want trouble free motoring do not buy one of these!”
On the side and rear windows the lettering says: “Problems with . . . 6 front ball joints, 4 front arm bushes, new seat base, front and rear n/s struts, full n/s suspension unit, anti-roll bar bushes, air con.”
A spokesman for Jaguar Land Rover said: “Land Rover operates a comprehensive warranty programme and a strong goodwill policy.
“All necessary repairs to this vehicle over 42,000 miles have been carried out under warranty. However, we are disappointed this customer’s experience has been unfortunate and as such we have made a goodwill offer towards helping him into a new vehicle.”
The Daily Mail reported that the customer was unhappy with the way the dealership had dealt with his complaints so went to the extreme of parking the car with negative advertising outside the showroom.
As the vehicle is on a public road, the showroom had no power to move it.
