Published on March 29, 2011 by Tycho de Feijter

A Range Rover driver in Shenyang in Liaoning Province was not happy with his vehicle anymore. He bought the Range last year for 2 million yuan or 304.604 USD. In one year the car broke down six times and the engine had to be replaced. When the car then broke down for the 7th time the driver had enough of it. He hired two donkeys to pull his Range Rover back to the dealer and asked for a total refund. The dealer did not yet agree…

    He should’ve known what Range Rover is famous for before buying it.

    […] by Aaron Richardson (RSS feed) on Mar 29th 2011 at 3:58PM A man in Shenyang, China was reportedly so frustrated with his 2010 Land Rover Range Rover breaking down that he towed it back to the dealer and asked for a full refund. To add a little insult to his heady request, the spurned owner towed the stricken SUV with a pair of donkeys. Apparently the guy paid ¥2 million (about $304,000) for the English SUV in 2010. Since the purchase, the car reportedly broke down six times and eventually needed a new engine. When it died a seventh time, the owner was apparently at wit's end. The stunt managed to hammer the point home in a much less destructive manner than a certain Lamborghini owner recently chose. According to Asian auto news outlet TheTycho, the doubtlessly dumbfounded dealer refused to give the customer a refund. [Source: TheTycho] […]

    […] DONKEY POWER A few weeks ago we told you about one ticked-off Lamborghini driver who publicly took a sledge hammer to his Gallardo because of problems with his dealer. Now it’s Land Rover’s turn. Chinese automotive site TheTycho.com reports the owner of a Range Rover had his luxury SUV towed back to the dealership by a pair of donkeys! The truck, which cost 2 million Yuan new – that’s about 305,000 U.S. dollars – had been in for repairs six times in one year, including an engine replacement. When it broke down for the seventh time the driver had enough. He brought the vehicle back and is asking for a full refund. No word yet if he’s getting one or not. You can’t beat donkeys for reliability. […]
