Indian businessman travels in faulty Jaguar drawn by donkeys

An Indian Jaguar owner has taken to driving round town in his new car with it being pulled by donkeys because he says its the only way to make it move.

Buisnessman Rahul Thakar, 38, who lives in India’s western Ahmedabad city came up with the idea after the brand new 53,000 GBP car repeatedly broke down and kept going back to the dealer for repairs.

He said: “I was fed up with going back and getting them to put things right only to have something else go wrong. In order to make sure I could at least still use it and to let the dealer know what I thought of their cars, I came up with the idea of having it towed around by donkeys. Basically, a donkey it seems is more reliable than a Jaguar.”

He added: “In my opinion, this car is worse than a sardine tin on wheels. I have taken it to many authorized dealers and garages but it has not helped me. It has so many problems I can’t even list them all.”

The poster on the front of the car says “Bogus Gaadi (car)”, “Bogus Company”, “Bogus Service”.

He said that he had bought the car on May 7 when the trouble started: “The lights first went off, I asked them for a change. They had no lights. I screamed, they changed the lights. Then the bumper fell off and it got repaired in 10 days when it is mandatory to repair it in 48 hours. And that was just the start.

“My family joked that it would have been better to buy a donkey cart, and actually I thought that wasn’t a bad idea, so I got a few animals sent round and hitched up to the car.”

The Indian dealership declined to comment on the case as talks are still ongoing for a solution.
