We have all had it happen; your car breaks down, you run out of fuel, you get a flat battery, a flat tyre or lock your keys in the car and it always happens where you don’t want it to happen. Usually at a shopping centre, traffic lights or in the middle of the road.
The most embarrassing place I have broken down is going out of our local Westfield shopping centre, waiting for the lights to change to leave the shopping centre, go to take off and the car dies. Cue a huge line of cars while I waited, once again, for roadside assistance to help.
I now have a late model Mazda 6 and even with new cars you need roadside assistance such as Allianz Roadside Assistance.
Just last year my battery was dying and had to be jumped a few times by my friendly roadside assistance fellow. Once at the boys school at pick up time, the other at our local Coles carpark when it was 40 degrees! Suffice to say after a few false starts, I bought a new battery but if it hadn’t been for the roadside assistance I would have been stuck at the school and at Coles in the heat. Yuk.
Thank you again roadside assistance, I honestly don’t know how many times they would have saved me from being stuck in remote places with the boys.
So even if you have a late model car, it is always better to be safe than sorry. Just because you have a new car doesn’t mean something isn’t going to happen with it un-expectantly.
