An angry Range Rover owner has banned a dealer with caravans and trucks plastered with consecutive angry messages about repairs to his £45,000 car.

Mike Cox has stopped a string of trucks, cars and caravans bearing slogans claiming the company “failed to fix his car” eight times outside his Stratstone Land Rover dealership in Leckwith, Cardiff.

Mr Cox, 36, said he’s brought the Range Rover Vogue SE back “over and over again” after problems with the cooling system – but it was never fixed.

Now the businessman has received an injunction to move the vehicles tomorrow after they parked outside the dealership three weeks ago.

Mr Cox (pictured), 36, said he got his Range Rover Vogue SE back ‘over and over again’ after problems with the cooling system – but it was never fixed.

“I’m just going to take them to one of the other 74 agents, or the main office,” he said.

“I want them to get the message that I’m not going away, they’ll have 74 cars outside their garage and one outside their main office – what they’re doing wrong,” he said.

They need to stop messing with people and instead give them the service they expect to get. In my case, they are just trying to back out now and use excuses. It’s silly.’

Mr. Cox decided to make his point by leaving the Range Rover out of the dealership – and blocking cars coming and going.

The car is now laminated with messages including “Don’t buy a Land Rover! They don’t honor their warranty,” and “How could Thierry Bollore – CEO of Land Rover – let her get into this?”.

Mr. Cox bought a new Range Rover almost four years ago and said there were many problems with the cooling system, which were never fixed, and claimed that the car continued to malfunction.

Mr. Cox bought a new Range Rover almost four years ago and said there were many problems with the cooling system, which were never fixed, and claimed that the car continued to malfunction.

He said: “It’s the same recurring problem and it hasn’t been properly fixed – I’ve gone back and forth about eight times now and it hasn’t been fixed.

In the past three years, he said, he only added 12,000 miles to the 30,000 miles he had on the clock when he bought it. But its engine failed last year.

“It’s the same problem and I just want them to fix the car,” he added.

Mr Cox said he had secured an extended warranty of £2,500 six weeks ago, which was “the best package” and “covers every problem”.

But he claimed that the company is now refusing to pay because the guarantee is too old.

“That’s wrong, why did they take my money and now use that as an excuse,” he said.

“It’s a joke – I don’t get pressured when I haven’t done anything wrong,” he added.

“That’s the principle, and that’s why I protest – I can take it, but what about the others, they’ll screw up.”

A Land Roar spokesperson said: ‘Land Roar has always aimed to provide the best customer service.

“We are currently investigating this case and are in regular contact with the customer concerned.”
