My new £36,000 lorry broke down FIVE times in less than a year and the mechanic blamed me

A DAD crashed into a garage after his brand new truck broke down FIVE times in seven months – but they blamed him for these problems.

Donald Hunter, 35, cashed out £36k in cash to get his MAN truck in perfect working condition but ran into problems.

The father from Berwick, Northumberland, was forced to travel for hours to the garages to find a way to fix the problem – causing his store to close.

Donald, who runs his own mobile business, was forced to wait hours and pay his own way to the garage.

Vehicles are understood to continue cutting, after reducing low levels of AdBlue, helping to remove harmful substances from automobile exhaust.

He bought the MAN van from the rental company Steadplan last August and was initially very pleased with his purchase.

But Donald claimed that the garage had blamed him and said there was nothing they could do about the problem.

He told The Sun: “I was a bit fanatic so I paid some extra bits and bobs for my car, and when I got it the first time there was no problem, it was perfect.

“The problem started when I had to put AdBlue in there, you just put the money in so I thought it wouldn’t be a problem.

“But the truck itself kept breaking down, and I took many engineers out. I was once in their garage until 5am with my son.

“The truck wouldn’t start, and it was left there for a week. That really put me in a difficult decision with my job.

“When I’m not at the store or driving to work, I lose money. And it’s frustrating because I bought the new van to make sure it’s working properly.

“That process has only been repeated five times, and they keep trying to blame me but this truck is clearly at fault.

“The different people I talked to kept saying different things, I had to prepare for my commute to and from the garage. They just told me I could get a courtesy car.

“All they keep saying is basically my fault, but if it happens all the time with the same problem then I don’t think so.

“It took me hours to get it to the garage, which means my shop is closed and I’m the only one working there so it means my business isn’t working. business.

“It’s the biggest nightmare I bring myself, if any of my clients have a problem, I’ll try to fix it. But they don’t care.

“What I want is to return it and get my money back, not even the full amount, or have them replace it with one that still works.

“I bought the biggest problem in my business, and I just need them to fix it for me and that’s ridiculous.”

A MAN spokesman said: “We spoke to Mr Hunter about an issue with his vehicle and how we can fix this in a way that works for him.

“In some cases, we have offered support through our dealer network and have come up with solutions that chart the way forward.

“We are working with Mr. Hunter and his vehicle and looking for a solution to this problem.”
