    Europe Breakdown cover

    Any recommendations for full 'get you and the car home' insurance please. Not the roadside assist covered by my standard insurance but the full works 'no strings attached' affair. Doing a search reveals all sorts costing from £50 to over £200. But which one is really worth having...

    Mercedes Breakdown Assistance.

    My Vito hadn't been used for a few weeks over the Christmas period. My experience of large Mercedes diesel engines is that they can be a little stuffy if not used for a while (esp in the winter). On Saturday, I started the Vito and set off only to find the 'Engine Management Light' was on...

    Breakdown cover

    So, I find myself sorting out insurance for my classic BMW at exactly the same time my old insurance cover for my W124 from Adrian Flux expired, as they were twice as expensive as last year. The classic car policy is painless, just lots of discussion about the modifications. However, the one...

    Breakdown cover

    Work related required breakdown cover as mandatory. Had one in 1981 with AA, it was such a push off and money wasting, never had one since then. What your recommendation with the most cost effective?

    Which breakdown service?

    Got to thinking about renewing my breakdown cover. The only time I ever used a service was back in 1999 for a Vauxhall Cavaliar flat battery in high street and in 2005 for a faulty alarm on a Z3... both with the AA So, difficult to know who to go with. I'm with Green Flag, but no idea what...

    My first Mercedes breakdown.

    I suppose it had to happen one day but I'm used to W124 reliability. My Viano failed to start last night about 7:00pm, turned the key and nothing happened. All the dash lights came on , all the lights wipers and heaters work but turn to start and nothing, no noise at all. Called mobilo who...
