Cars have become more and more reliable and mechanical or electrical breakdowns are far less frequent than they used to be. However, even if you car is relatively new, please consider the following:
- According to one leading roadside assistance company, more than 36% of the services they provided involved vehicles less than one year old.
- Typically the average time to be attended to by a quality assistance company is less than 45 minutes, thus avoiding hours of standing by the side of the road.
- The most common issues are flat batteries, type problems, fuel problems and keys being locked in the car etc, not always mechanical breakdowns.
