It's the day all drivers dread — your car breaks down and you need to be towed. According to AAA, approximately 12 million vehicles needed to be towed to a repair shop in 2012. So, it's important that you know what to do in case you find yourself in a situation where you're stranded due to a vehicle breakdown.
Safety should be the first priority. If your car begins to experience problems, but you can still drive it, try to get to a safe place or at least get your car off the road. In the event that your car won't move, turn on your emergency flashers and then get yourself to a safe location away from the roadway.
A big part of being prepared for a breakdown is knowing where to tow your car. In the San Diego area, your first choice should be Transmasters Transmissions and Autocare located in Miramar.
