A woman was left embarrassed when she finally got her vehicle back from a car repair shop only to find out a week later that mechanics had messed up her car’s badge, making it Rover Range instead of Range Rover.
Aimeejo Madge’s $31,250 car had to be repaired after it got damaged from a four-vehicle smash.
When she received her white Range Rover Evoque after six weeks, she did not notice what the mechanics did. It was only after driving it for a week when she found the badge messed up.
The 28-year-old said: “Being a Range Rover it was a dream car for us and I have always wanted one. We worked really hard to afford it.
“When we got it back at first nobody noticed anything was wrong because we were more focused on the damage which was fixed.”
It was her boyfriend, Scott, who pointed out the jumbled badge.
“Scott thought, ‘hang on this doesn’t look right, it says Rover first’. He sent me a photo but I still didn’t believe him. I was in shock and just laughed at first.
“I thought it was a prank and thought Scott had done something with the camera so I made him send me a video. They basically put the badge on wrong. It must have been the only Rover Range in the world. It was absolutely embarrassing.”
Aimeejo said the error was made by the repairmen in Wales. “I told the garage we worked hard for this car and now it was now an embarrassment.
“I still had to drive it to work and it was humiliating because it was so visible. I had a private number plate anyway so the attention would have been drawn to that area. I was so mortified to keep driving it that I was parking up against a tree in work to hide it.”
She added: “Why wasn’t this picked up in a quality check? They replaced them after a week, but it was the stress of it.”
