Seeing how the mk2 I bought has proved to be an unreliable beast (its not managed to make it home in a week
) I think I better organise some breakdown cover for it! What do you lot have, how much do you pay and for what etc...? Its unreliable but I fkning love it!

Through my bank phil, top cover included in the account fee. Used it twice and my pal was stranded in Birmingham 500 miles away and he pretend he was me. No questions asked

who do you bank with paul - I've been told I can get it through nationwide at about a tenner a month. quidco doing some cashback promo with AA too. I just want it to be able to get home if it packs up away from home when I cant get it back myself. Saying that I'm hoping my troubles are all finished with it now!

What troubles you been having mate? Been with the AA years now, joint cover for me & the wife, home start cover & relay/european etc etc is about £200...........invaluable tbh, my 3.5 tonne van snapped an aux belt recently & was recovered to my local specialist within 3 hours

i have it through my bank, im with rbs unfortunately (had to open an account as i used to work for them) never used it yet, and im not sure what cover i get, i think they recover my car to the nearest garage or home, and drop me off wherever, but that depends on the driver i guess

costs me £12.50 a month, plus i get phone insurance and other stuff too

Threw a lead off the starter on the way home last Wednesday, although it has just had the wiring done to the starter and alternator so I reckon the garage had not fitted correctly. Then at my mums on Thursday a bolt came out of the aux belt tensioner and because it wouldn't sit central the belt wouldn't stay on. Then caught the sump on the way back from Frankies on a railway crossing - had to get my mate to town me home with my van...thinking sensibly for a change I should get something in case anything happens further away than I can manage myself. That Tesco deals option looks good, might look into that...
