Mooney Ewok Forum

God what a bunch of moaners on that forum.

Everything is a big issue and it's a JLR's fault.

"Urg, my new car's late because they are fixing a problem before allowing me to take delivery."*

"My Meridian HiFi doesn't read my text messages like the base-spec HU."

"Urg My Range Rover has Land Rover badges on it."




Just self deleted off there before I say something really bad.




* Seems the new DERV engine needs a redesigned airbox resonator and an EGR wiring loom
mod. 5 minutes job. Why has it taken 4 weeks!!!!

#NoIdeaAboutRealIssues

Are you for one moment suggesting that Ewok owners are self-important to55ers?

(And I think you'll find the hastily-redesigned airbox resonator is to get it within emissions spec. before someone finds out they cooked the books )

Bearing in mind the agricultural origins of the vehicle, a mite churlish?

What do you expect if you drive a Skoda? They're annoyingly reliable.

(I take it yours is a petrol though, yes? If it's a diesel there might be rather a lot to complain about soon...)

[QUOTE=Tata4Now;13877010]I'm missing the camaraderie of RangeRover ownership already.

A Range Rover comes from Solihull . TheWok is produced from where once upon a time Ford Escorts did emerge.
We were in the Giulietta yesterday and a Solihull RR came towards us ,towering down, and my daughter noted " that's tall" . It did seem clumsily big in the suburbs.
Anyway, the Halewood RR owners do have highered expectations once they've finished with the Configurator don't they?

The configurator is all important to RR ownership:
They need to be able to change their mind at least 5 times concerning the
colour they've ordered after the order has been place.

And add options that others class as "Must have!":


A glass roof is "A Must!"
4WD and a powerful engine are apparently not a big deal for an SUV.


Also whether you get an MY15,16,17 is all important.
Don't want to be seen with last year's model.


Oh and you need to get onto LR's TOPix system to track your vehicles progress
and if it is delayed that's instant grounds for order cancellation and going for an
Audi/BMW/Whatever.

I assume the cars are merely delivered to the lease company rather than the " owner" as it should be ?
