As some of you would have read, I had the need for 5 NRMA callouts/tows in 2 days last weekend:umm: As a result, I was sent an online survey which has got me to thinking that as a collective, we may be able to...petition may be too strong, but...request a referral service from the NRMA. I was nervous every time I called them that they would send me to the "nearest NRMA service centre". I've learned many of the perils of going to un-VW-aware mechanics (via this forum and my mechanics stories rather than experience, thank goodness) and while the NRMA was happy to fulfill my requests for specific mechanics - as long as I paid the towing fees if I needed to go further than what they provided - I was in a position last Friday (going into a long weekend) that I didn't know any mechanics in the area I'd broken down in. As a result, I had to pay $106 for a second tow on Saturday morning, as it was the second on the same breakdown:wtf: It got me thinking that if I broke down in 'the middle of nowhere' - which is quite possible in our big, brown land - that I may be in a position where I wouldn't have a hope of finding a mechanic who would be able to cope with the old girl:umm: There are clearly some 'legal' implications here, but I wondered if was too much to ask that services such as NRMA (RACQ, etc) had a facility that could help those of us with vehicles that aren't "standard" find a specialist that would be able to help? What do you think?
