If you bought new then check whether breakdown cover is included. I know it is with Hyundai as a bonus while you get the car serviced with them. I had reason to call out the AA via them when my 12v failed one morning - though having had the battery update done I don't expect that problem again anytime soon.Hi,
New to the EV world, just wondering if anyone knows the best breakdown cover? Preferably want the assurance in case I do run out of battery I can get to at least the nearest charger.
It'll most likely be the standard RAC callout number.Kia comes with 1 year RAC breakdown cover. I'm sure mine does. It is free of charge, but the documentation was so vague, I could not even find a phone to put in my mobile.
Thanks for reminding me, I was planning to read through it again. It might have been that the phone number was Kia, which I'm assuming would dispatch RAC... as I said, I need to read it again and sort it out for myself. Which I think would be the best advice to the OP as well.It'll most likely be the standard RAC callout number.
If you need to call, then you should tell them that your membership came with the car.
If it's at all like my bank-provided AA membership, it's the cheapest level offered.
I would not worry about running out of electrons, more than I would about running out of juice in an ICE.Is it worth paying for recovery? (I can’t work out whether they cover running out of power - the main concern in an ev)
I got a letter from the RAC ~ 2 weeks after buying the car - this gave the (RAC) nos as:Thanks for reminding me, I was planning to read through it again. It might have been that the phone number was Kia
