A frustrated driver has revealed his unusual plan to wreak revenge on a car manufacturer after his £16,000 vehicle was plagued by a string of faults.
Mark Fell-Crook, 29, from Prestatyn in north Wales, is planning to crush his Peugeot 307 and send it back to the dealer.
The IT worker has set up a website - crushmy307.co.uk - to publicise his stunt.
He said: "I have had problems with the car since I bought it three-and-a-half years ago.
"It has been back to the garage 30 times for repairs but the final straw came when the exhaust dropped off after only 26,000 miles.
"After that, I'd had enough and decided to do something about it.
"I was at the end of my tether and I just wanted to get my own back on Peugeot."
Mr Fell-Crook was inspired by an episode of cult comedy The Simpsons - in which power plant boss Montgomery Burns' car is crushed into a cube.
He said: "I thought it was hilarious and decided that was what I was going to do and then deliver the car back to the dealer.
"It is just a bit of fun and my way of making my point to Peugeot."
Mr Fell-Crook is asking members of the public to help him raise more than £13,000 to buy a new car and raise money for Cancer Research.
A spokeswoman for Peugeot said they had made a number of attempts to help Mr Fell-Crook.
She said: "The last contact we had from the customer regarding an issue with his car was in May 2005.
"When it became clear that Mr Fell-Crook was so unhappy with his vehicle that he wished to exchange it, his dealer made a number of offers to help, including part exchanges at favourable rates.
"However, Mr Fell-Crook has rejected these offers as he feels that he is entitled to a brand new replacement vehicle of identical specification at no cost to himself after almost four years of motoring.
"As far as we are aware there are no issues outstanding with this vehicle.
"If Mr Fell-Crook wishes to report any new issues to our customer care team we would continue to make every effort to assist him."
