This totally depends on why you are buying the service.Oracle1729 wrote: ↑Oct 23rd, 2017 9:01 amGood catch. CAA will tow anywhere in the radius you're paying for, and since we have a preferred repair shop about 40km from home, towing to the "closest" one is useless to us.
The more I think about it, for most people a tow to the closest "authorized" repair shop to your breakdown is the height of penny-wise pound-foolish. Better to spend a bit more on a tow to a known reputable shop.
We have two brand new cars. I don't buy services like this to tow cars to repair shops. I buy them so that when my wife is travelling in the snow with my 2 year old daughter in the middle of nowhere and I am halfway across the continent, I don't have to worry about her. I don't care if the car gets towed to Canadian Tire or Joes Ripoff Centre as long as it's back to civilization.
I don't live in this world where people get their cars towed "3 or 4 times a year"... man, I don't know how anyone would put up with that. Maintain your vehicle! I've hard my car towed to a repair shop once in my entire life and i am almost 40.
