Roadside assistance is only provided for the first year with new Kia cars and mine is coming up for renewal. Has anyone with a car older than 12 months decided to change to a different company for their breakdown cover?

Kia's roadside assistance is provided by RAC but I notice they also do a specific EV breakdown service. Has anyone had any experience of the KIA/RAC service and how do you rate it?

I don't have direct experience but I'm interested in the question! I note that RAC claim to have the unique offer of a mobile charging service - gives you 10 miles of range - though they also say that is currently fitted to only 80 patrol vehicles. They also address the towing problem directly.

But they (like the AA) are not cheap! For a lot less you can get Green Flag cover (about 1/3 of the price for a spot check I just did) and we've always found them good for supporting our ICE cars. They say they are happy to look after EVs too but don't give any reassuring details.
