Top Ten Breakdown Service Callouts

Friday, 2. February 2018

Hi, Graham Hill here, thank you so much for visiting my blog, I hope you learn a lot and as a result end up driving a great car. In order to do so you can get all the information you need by buying my book, An Insider Guide To Car Finance or use me to finance your next car. Happy driving.

According to What Car these are the top ten reasons why drivers call out breakdown services (in 2016)


  1. Battery (433,964)
  2. Puncture (328,863)
  3. Alternator (65,118)
  4. Engine (63,870)
  5. Clutch (57,153)
  6. Starter Motor (48,910)
  7. Engine Control Unit (34,756)
  8. Ignition Coil (29,287)
  9. Gearbox (20,789)
  10. Contaminated Diesel (19,711)


Very few of the above can be fixed at the side of the road so you would need to make sure that the cover you have is sufficient. Most new car policies that come with the car for either the first year or sometimes 3 years plus will be quite a good cover but some may only recover you to the nearest garage if you breakdown so check that. On the other hand your car insurance may cover you for a hire car so no need to include it in the breakdown policy.


Check the policies to make sure that you are sufficiently covered. Some policies will cover you in any car in which you are travelling so make sure that you are aware in case a friend’s or relative’s car breaks down and they don’t have a membership of a breakdown service whilst you are in the car.


Oh and make sure you have the number of the breakdown service in your phone, you don’t want to be fumbling about for the number when you break down in the middle of the night. By Graham Hill
