The Melbourne man who made an inventive rap to complain about his Jeep purchase has settled on a sum with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.
A spokesperson from FCA, the parent company of Jeep, has confirmed to B&T that “FCA Australia has now settled with Mr Tegraj Sethi”.
Teg Sethi took to YouTube with his video after claims his 2013 Jeep Cherokee was a “lemon”. You can relive the tune here:
Last week B&T reported that Sethi had turned down an offer of $61,000 from FCA, saying he wants to raise awareness for consumer protection instead.
“Every bone in my body wants to take that money,” he told News Corp media. “It would help my family so much. But I can’t do it.”
But now, Sethi has apparently listened to his bones, and come to an agreement with FCA Australia regarding the initial offering, which is reported as being $61,000.
“Mr. Sethi has accepted FCA’s original offer and terms that were put to him last week,” the spokesperson confirmed to B&T.
B&T contacted Teg Sethi, who said: “I have finally settled with FCA as they presented me with a new contract that enables my associates and I to continue to fight for lemon Laws. My refusal was not so much to raise awareness, as has been widely reported because a few reporters simply missed the point, The contract itself was to restricting. I was presented with a new contract and we settled the matter. I look forward to continuing my work on campaigning for lemon laws.”
