 Emmanuel Borkety Bortey, is taking Alliance Motors Ghana Limited, AFCL Ghana, and Jaguar Land Rover in South Africa to court over a defective vehicle he purchased. According to court documents, Mr. Bortey bought a Land Rover 2020 model for $168,000 on July 29, 2020, but later found out that the engine was defective.

He is now demanding a refund of the total amount of $96,000, which was paid in installments from August 2020 until the final date. The plaintiff also seeks unspecified damages for breach of contract and costs, including solicitor’s fees.

After concluding the sale, Alliance Motors introduced AFCL Ghana Limited to the plaintiff as a company that could grant credit towards the purchase. The financing agreement approved for disbursement was $151,200, with a credit facility to be repaid over a period of 36 months at an interest rate of 11% per annum, bringing the total repayment to about $184,144.32.

However, in October 2021, Mr. Bortey sent the vehicle for routine checks and realized that the ‘Check Engine’ and ‘Tyre Pressure’ indicator lights were on and wouldn’t go off. After investigation, it was discovered that the engine was defective and needed to be replaced.

Although Jaguar Land Rover was notified of the issue and agreed to replace the engine, they failed to deliver a courtesy car, which caused Mr. Bortey to incur additional expenses. He eventually decided to return the vehicle and demand a refund since it couldn’t live up to its billing as a robust and efficient vehicle.

Mr. Bortey contends that Alliance Motors and AFCL Ghana had a clear intention to deprive him of the funds he paid towards the purchase of the vehicle. The case is currently in court, and the plaintiff is hoping for a favourable outcome.
