PORSCHE'S R154 000 RAT BILL


When Micheal Maeso of Mount Edgecombe, KwaZulu-Natal, took his prized Porsche Carrera 4S Cabriolet on a spin recently, just three weeks after a full service was done, he noticed the oil pressure gauge wasn’t working.

Back to the Porsche dealership the car went, and that’s how the resident rat, and the damage it had caused before it died, was discovered.

“I was horrified,” Maeso said, “but I suppose living in areas that were previously cane fields, these things happen.”

The repair bill was a hefty R154,000. Luckily for him, his claim was settled by his insurer, Hollard, via his broker, TIB Insurance Brokers.

“My house has been fumigated now and I will make sure the car is armed with rat poison and anything else that Porsche recommends,” Maeso said.
