  2. Land rover main dealer had my car to do a service.They were supposed to have it overnight, but heard nothing from them the following day.I tried calling them but couldn't get through to anyone. Now I know why..spoke to them today and they admitted they had an accident in it. They never informed of this, so I don't know what damage was or how it happened.They say they've nearly repaired it. obviously they have waived service fee, but I must be due to compensation as: 1. I didn't have use of my car for a lost a week, and lost work as I coudln't attend my customers. 2.they have been negligent with my car, and didn't inform me ( I may have wanted to get it repaired at my own garage) what do i do?

  4. Six weeks ago i was in the market for a new car and havinf decided to spend $30,000 plus I decided to limit my searches to main dealer outlets. I had decided to purchase the new Range Rover Evoque SD Prestige as this had all the bits I wanted and the power I needed. I went on Land Rovers web site and found a car that had all the bits I wanted and the power I needed and went down to the dealership to strike the deal. The online advert (I have the original copy) said the car was a SD prestigae with 190 BHP. The car check came back and confirmed the car was the one described . I made the purchase with a deposit on y credit card and the remainder via a bank loan. I also traded in the car I owned for £10,000. Six weeks later and not very happy with the cars performance I returned tha car to Land Rover to have some paint work repaired which was agreed at the point of sale. I also mentioned to the salesman that i thought the car was not running well because it didn't seem to have the power it should have. I was given a loan car which was identical to mine and I noticed within minutes that when drove this car performed much better. From the car (using handsfree kit of course) I called the salesman and asked him again to check my car out because there was clearly something not right. he said he would get an engineer to go for a run with me when i picked it up. I picked the car back up today and this was when the salesman said to me that the car I had loaned was a much more powerfull engine and that it was 190bhp. I said the car I had bought was 190 bhp but the saleman said it was not and that it was a 150bhp. Further more the saleman said the car was not the SD version but the TD. i said I would check all my facts and come back to them. I checked the logbook which arrived a week ago and found it says the car is a SD prestigate but a 150 bhp engine. I checked my invoice and it said that the car was a SD Prestige. I checked the print off from the Land Rover web site I tuck when i went down to buy the car and it says its a SD Prestigae 190 BHP. The car its self at the rear says its a TD4 which one the LR web site says its a 150 BHP engine. I'm now left with a car I have paid over the odds for which does not have the power I wanted. I explained when i went into the delaers that i wanted a more powerful care than the one I had which was a 160 BHP engine so they should have known this was not right for me. I have asked Land Rover to look into the issue and i await there reply. Can anybody please give me some advice as to what I can do?
  5. Jaguar Land Rover says it will create 1,300 new jobs to build Jaguar's first sports utility vehicle (SUV) at its Solihull plant in the West Midlands. The firm has already invested £1.5bn in the Solihull plant to enable it to increase production, and it said its workforce there had almost doubled over the past three years to 9,450. Jaguar Land Rover currently employs 30,500 people in the UK. The car, called the Jaguar F-PACE, will be based on its C-X17 concept car. That was first launched at the Frankfurt motor show in 2013. The new model is due to go on sale in 2016. Jaguar Land Rover's UK executive director, Mike Wright, told the BBC the new vehicle would not be a "gas guzzler". "We spend about £3.5bn on our product investment each year and one thing that we really focus on is making sure that our future cars are both economic in terms of fuel economy, in terms of CO2. "This car's going to be built at one of the world's biggest aluminium body shops at Solihull that we've invested a huge amount of money in over the last couple of years. So gas guzzling? No". 'Thriving' The luxury car firm, owned by India's Tata Motors, said it had chosen the UK as the new model's manufacturing base because it wanted its cars to be "crafted with that special British flair". Jaguar Land Rover chief executive Dr Ralf Speth said the announcement demonstrated its "commitment to the UK and the advancement of a high-tech, high-skilled, manufacturing-led economy". Business Secretary Vince Cable hailed the decision as a "ringing endorsement" of the UK's car industry. Mr Cable said Jaguar Land Rover's decision showed the UK's car manufacturing sector was in good health. "The UK's automotive industry is thriving with a new car rolling off the production line every 20 seconds, and increasing levels of investment that's helping to secure local jobs," he said. Growth The announcement came as Jaguar Land Rover said it had sold 462,678 vehicles globally last year - a rise of 9% year-on-year - and the fifth consecutive year that sales have grown. China saw the strongest growth, with sales up 28%, while in the UK sales rose 7%. Economic growth in China has slowed in recent years, and a clampdown on government spending on luxuries is eating into many companies' sales growth in the country. However, Mr Wright told the BBC said there was little sign of slowing demand in China for its products. "In the medium to long-term we see huge demand. The retail demand is still there in China," he said. So why was it doing so poorly under UK managership, has the UK lost it's way or is Europe stifling it?
  6. I bought a Rover 45 on 27th April from a garage, since then its been back 5 times the AC is broken so I have no blowers, the rear electric window is not working, and its just been in for a believed water leak, have been to collect it tonight and have been told that no leaks can be found although I need to refill with approx. 3 pints of water each time I use it. It appears it could be the head gasket or something to do with the pistons, and have been advised its a very expensive job, what rights do I have please? Iam due to see the Manager on Tuesday can I ask for a exchange car? or my money back need to know what my options are
  7. Deloitte faces a fine of up to £20m and the suspension of one of its partners after a tribunal ruled the accountants had shown a “deliberate disregard” for professional ethics in its handling of the sale of defunct carmaker MG Rover. The Financial Reporting Council’s (FRC) tribunal dismissed an appeal by Deloitte against an earlier ruling and said the firm had failed to manage the conflicts of interest created by its role as the advisers to MG Rover and the “Phoenix Four” directors that bought the business out of administration. The tribunal has the power to impose an unlimited fine and the FRC is pressing for Deloitte to face a £20m penalty, as well as the suspension of Maghsoud Einollahi, a partner at the firm who was involved in the deal. The tribunal’s decision comes after Deloitte was fined $10m by New York’s banking regulator this year over its consulting work for Standard Chartered on money laundering issues. It was also investigated over its auditing of the collapsed bank RBS. MG Rover collapsed in 2005 with the loss of 6,000 jobs after wracking up debts of £1.4bn, having been bought five years earlier from BMW for £10 by businessmen Peter Beale, Nick Stephenson, John Towers and John Edwards. The so-called “Phoenix Four” were struck off as company directors for a combined 19 years in 2011, having shared £42m in pay and pensions after buying the company in 2000.
