The Iconic Land Rover Defender

 Land Rover Defender Tipper

The security system problem that Hunters Land Rover of Southampton and Land Rover don't want you to know about and they have made it quite clear, even though it does not comply with the 'Sale of Goods Act' they are not going to fix it.

These are just a few of the Land Rover Defender related web sites I own, you may well be wondering why so many web sites with the same information, well I am taking the same stance as the French when they have an issue everyone knows about it. So why put one site up when you can get your point across far better with 50.  

 

There would be no need to do this if Land Rover had honoured their word and fixed the problem but instead they made a U turn and conveniently forgot to tell me, the customer, about it. Obviously they are a very dishonourable company and the customer is just an inconvenience to them. And incidentally the security system is not fit for purpose and it does not comply with the 'Sale of Goods Act' in the UK.

 

The vehicle was purchased from Hunters Land Rover in Southampton, part of the Inchcape Group, and just like Land Rover a dishonourable company, so avoid dealing with these people. I don't know how these people can sleep at night knowing they are selling flawed and defective vehicles.

 

Regarding the legal system in the UK. The average working class person does not stand a chance of getting a case to court. I have had 4 solicitors and I am currently £2000 out of pocket and still have not got anywhere near a court room. They are only interested in legal aid cases and chasing ambulances. I even tried the legal protection that is part of the vehicles insurance, and you would have thought they would be interested in taking the case, as the insurance company has to pay out 100’s of thousands of pounds for theft of vehicles and theft of parts from vehicles, but they weren’t interested.

 

So would I buy another one, the short answer is No, never in a million years. It's not the cost of the vehicle but it's the cost of keeping the vehicle. CCTV system to keep a watch on the vehicle 24/7, a drive way alarm to alert you if anyone comes on the drive. Then there is the problem of parking and leaving the vehicle whilst away from home as people have had vehicles and parts stolen from vehicles whilst parked in hotel, supermarket and public carparks. 

 

Incidentally during the first 9 months of ownership the vehicle was in the repair shop for 3 of those months.
