Steering Failure - Pictures

Credit for these 3 photos goes to Evoque owner "ionguja" - they show grapically the mess that's left behind when the power steering motor retention screws fail due to corrosion.

You could reject this car immediately because it is "not of satisfactory quality" as provided by section 9, Consumer Rights Act, 2015.

Re: Hi newbie need help rejecting a car with DPF issues -

The Car Expert forum was a useful contact point for unwitting victims of D8 misselling as it contained 85 complaints, all related to the effects of the faulty exhaust design.

McGovern: It's ALL About ME....

Geraldine has been preening again, this time to GQ Magazine. I wonder what happened to the cravat ? “The world was waiting to see the new Defender – that’s the impression we had – given they hadn’t seen one for such a long time,” says McGovern. “I suppose in terms of legacy, it will probably be the ...

Re: DPF filter fault! Help needed to reject car

It's not your driving style, your car is faulty.

See attachments for further information relevant to your situation. There's a big thread on the forum dedicated to the faulty exhaust issue but the document below provides links to the relevant sections.

Re: Captain Speth deserts the sinking ship.......

Won't using BMW engines cut quite a lot of the need for r&d spending? Total investment in the EMC "Micron factory" that created Ingenium was £500 million. It would be one small way of robbing Peter to pay Paul but this issue is about cash, not P&L, remember. On paper it's profitable - but cash is s...
