They once towed me 60 miles home at no charge. I think it's a great deal. Any thoughts?

Had AAA for decades but its essentially worthless anymore, takes an hour to respond, and half the time they come in a vehicle unequipped for the job like a Chevy S-10 with a hand held generator.

I decided to go with the VW factory warranty and used it once when I left the lights on, they were at my garage in 20 minutes.

I have had Auto Club (AAA) for a few years now. I visit friends in a mountain community about 95 miles away and had to call for a tow when the car broke down late at night on the way down the mountain. Although I had to wait about an hour for the tow truck to arrive they put my car on a flat bed and took us the 90 miles all the way back to my front door. That one tow would have been at least $300 if I had to pay for it. Well worth the extra cost of the upgrade from basic membership to the Recreational Vehicle membership or whatever they call it. Wouldn't want to be forced to leave the car overnight in that town at the bottom of the mountain, not the best of places to be late at night either.

Then there is going to the Auto Club to renew the registration... priceless compared to standing in line at the Dept. of Motor Vehicles in California.

I know DMV lets drivers make an appointment but what they don't tell you is that there is a long line as you walk in the door and that is just to check in, so I've been stuck standing in that line for as much as 1/2 hour just to get a number so I could start the wait for the appointment!

The other thing is anytime one tries to get an appointment at the DMV the earliest available date is always 7 to 10 days in the future. Screw that! I just go to the Auto Club on the spur of the moment and wait in line 15 or 20 minutes at the most.
