"HAMBURG, Germany and ISTANBUL, March 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Law firm Gurol Law Firm, acting on behalf of their client Engin Yakut, a Turkish lawyer and businessman, have announced today that a trial against Land Rover has been set for 17 September 2015 in Istanbul.

The Turkish courts have sent this legal notification to the Turkish Foreign Ministry, which in turn has notified its embassy in London as Land Rover is a UK-based company.

Engin Yakut is being represented by the lawyer Candas Gurol of Gurol Law Firm. In addition to lodging his complaint with the courts, he has also taken his case to the European Union, the European Commission, the Directive of Consumer Rights of the European Commission, and the European Organisation for Quality.

If Engin Yakut wins this case, he will have the right to file a "recognition and enforcement" lawsuit for recalling all the engines worldwide.

Engin Yakut has been campaigning for a trial since February 2012 and a date has finally been set for 17 September in Istanbul.

Thumbs Up

using bing translate I got this:

"Hearing on recall of LAND ROVER shall take place on 17 September in Istanbul


Istanbul (ots) - the renowned Turkish lawyer

and businessman Edwards y. announces today, that the court hearing on the recall of Land Rover vehicles for the 17 September 2015 in Istanbul is set on. Y. had driven the process against Land Rover after 2012, serious problems with the engine and the PIV circuit had occurred at his vehicle. Objective of the hearing is to obtain damages, to stop the production of the affected models of Vogue and obtain a corresponding recall.


The Turkish Court has sent the summons to the Turkish Foreign Ministry, which in turn informed the Turkish Embassy in London, as Land Rover has its principal place of business in the UK. It seems that Land Rover has asked a Turkish firm as a representative in the process. It is still unclear whether a representative at the hearing will be present.


Y. Edwards is represented by Attorney Patrick Cox. This case is heard not only in the Turkish Court but also from the European Union, the European Commission and of the directive on consumer protection of the European Commission and the European Organization for quality. Land Rover is currently certified to ISO 9000, and Edwards y. is of the opinion that this certification should be lifted until it is clearly proved that the engine and workmanship for this Land Rover vogue series have been completely fixed. If Mr Yakut wins this process, he will receive an official letter to the "recognition and enforcement" and thus the back draw of all these engines around the world.


The problem began in February 2012, as Edwards y. a Land Rover Vogue bought in Turkey. The vehicle broke down after only 450 km. The authorized Land Rover service workshop examined the vehicle thoroughly and Mr Yakut explained that the PIV-transmission was no longer working and that he could no longer drive a car for safety reasons. The workshop was also a number of other manufacturing defect. Y. Edwards then took at least eight more vehicle owners who have had the same problems. Unfortunately Land Rover agreed to any compensation, even more so, it not even answered the various questions. Engin y. and the other parties concerned have sought since to a hearing of the case in court. The result is the hearing in Istanbul on 17 September 2015."

Will be interesting to watch how they get on.

"A report was issued indicating that the engine was damaged and the transmission had broken off, as it was not screwed on firmly."
