If you bought a car that broke down five times in a year and were refused a refund on it and were denied any help dealing with it when you talked to the dealer or head office, then how would you deal with it?
Personally, I would probably be legitimately pissed off but would just try and sell it on the next sucker so I didn’t lose too much money on it, but then I’m a bad person. I definitely would not do what this guy did though and create a high budget extreme music video that absolutely trolls Jeep and Chrysler to the extreme for selling him a shitty car and then refusing to deal with it.
What’s more the song is actually fairly catchy and the lyrics are fairly insightful. I mean it is a stupid rap song that kinda sounds like T-Pain or something, but as far as trolling/joke songs go it’s definitely up there.
Could see it getting to number one, no joke. What’s more is that it seems to be working as well, as it’s had over 635,000 plays at the time of writing and the feedback seems to be largely positive.

Here’s what Teg himself had to say about the whole experience:
Hi there, my name is Teg, I live in Australia and in October 2013 I bought a new Jeep Grand Cherokee for $60,000.
This was a BIG mistake as it has been a lemon Jeep from the day I got it.
It’s had numerous issues and has been towed a number of times.
I no longer trust it to transport my family safely
I recorded this song and made this music clip out of frustration, as the dealer and Fiat Chrysler Australia have basically told me to bugger off.
I’m not the only person who has experienced major issues with Fiat Chrysler Australia… in fact, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) had so many people complain to them, that they took action in September 2015 and announced sanctions against Fiat Chrysler Australia.
One guy even tore his new Jeep apart using excavators and then set it on fire in frustration of the way he was treated by the dealer and Fiat Chrysler Australia.
He also setup a facebook page to keep the pressure on the government to introduce stricter laws to hold companies like this resposible for the supply of safe and reliable vehicles in Australia.
There are also two lobby groups in Australia who are pushing for the introduction of lemon laws to protect the consumer.
It basically sounds like Jeeps in Australia completely suck and Chrysler itself is an even worse company. If you’re reading this over there and thinking about buying one of their cars then clearly, DON’T DO IT.
To be fair, you’re probably better off investing in one of these completely weird cars from the Soviet Union to be honest.
