Owning and maintaining a luxury car isn’t an easy task and Salman Khan has learnt that the hard way.

The 47-year-old actor took to Twitter to vent out against the makers of Range Rover after a year and a half of trouble with his SUV.

‘Meri bichari Range Rover ke hal kharab hai in last 1&1/2 yrs 9times brakepads hv failed 1bari pura suspension gaya or kal gadi he baith gayi. The company guys say its a heavy car so the break pads vil wear off hehehe toh bus truck aur train n planes ka rose badalte hongay kya. so kinda pissed with the attitude of the people at Range Rover they hv no concept of customer service,’ he wrote.

‘Kal raat ko jab gadi bandh padi had to take a rick home, really enjoyed the rickshaw ride : )’ he added.

His sister Arpita Khan also slammed the luxury car brand and tweeted: ‘Range Rover is suppose to be one of the best Suv's in the world but we disagree, Bhais car has been giving us so many issues. And the company has the most stupid explanation for why it keeps breaking down.’
