Enterprise Rent-a-Car bills teacher £3700 after rental Vauxhall Corsa conked out – Daily Mail

  • Fred Coker had to pull over on M25 when his rental car stopped working
  • Enterprise rental firm said he had carried on driving with warning light on
  • Company sent him huge bill claiming Vauxhall Corsa needs a new engine
  • But he claims he did not see warning light and believes he is the one who should be compensated

A teacher has been landed with a £4,400 bill after the hire car he was driving conked out – with the hire firm blaming him for ‘ignoring a warning light’ for 15 minutes.

IT teacher Fred Coker, from Luton, Bedfordshire, hired the four-month-old Vauxhall Corsa in March last year from Enterprise Rent-a-Car.

But as he drove it along the M25, the car, which only had 1,200 miles on its clock, slowed before breaking down, with Mr Coker pulling over to the hard shoulder.

The 43-year-old called Enterprise and told them the car had ‘just stopped’, but that it had not run out of petrol.

A recovery truck was sent to pick the car up and Mr Coker was given a replacement car for the day.

The Corsa was taken to a Motorbodies Vauxhalll, a specialist Vauxhall garage in Luton to be checked over, but workers at the garage could not find out what caused the car to severely overheat.

But a report stated that a temperature warning light had been on for 14 minutes and 46 seconds at the moment the car broke down.

It stated that the car had been ‘driven to complete destruction’, adding: ‘If attention had been paid to the temperature warning light indicated on the instrument cluster, consequential damage could have been saved.’

Bosses at Enterprise then contacted Mr Coker and wrote to him saying he was responsible for wrecking the car’s engine and that he should have pulled over as soon as he saw the warning light.

It said he owed the firm £3,400 for a new engine, admin charges and more than £300 for ‘loss of use of the vehicle’.

He also faces having to pay legal fees.

Last week the bailiffs turned up at Mr Coker’s home demanding full payment.

Speaking this week, father-of-two Mr Coker said he had not noticed the warning light on the dashboard – and that he should be compensated for being given a duff car.

He said: ‘Bailiffs turned up at my home last Thursday and demanded that I pay the money or possessions would be taken from me.

‘They have claimed there was a warning light, but I didn’t see one.

‘This is not my fault, the question is what happened to a vehicle registered in February 2014 and that had done only 1,200 miles to develop a fault.

‘They did not address the fact that they rented out a car that had a defect or fault but rather I am accused of continuing to drive the vehicle 15 minutes after warning light occurred.’

He told the Luton Today website: ‘I don’t deserve this treatment.’

‘My daughters, who are five and eight, saw that and it has left me emotionally distressed.’

I don’t deserve this treatment 

A county court judgement in January found in favour of Enterprise, but Mr Coker says he will ‘fight on’.

A spokesman for Enterprise spokesman said this week that its rental agreement states that drivers ‘must stop using the vehicle’ if they become aware of a fault.

He said: ‘Our rental agreement clearly states that drivers must stop using the vehicle and contact us as soon as they become aware of a fault.

‘In this instance, we can only conclude that our terms and conditions have been breached and that the damage has been caused by the vehicle being driven when it should not have been.

‘Enterprise expects there to be fair wear and tear to its vehicles during the rental period.

‘However, when damage is caused by the driver disregarding a warning light, we believe that they should be responsible for the damage to our property.

‘When you drive a rental car, you should treat it just as you would your own vehicle.’
