  • I think the only two reasons my car has ever broken down was because of a bad alternator, battery problem, and fuel problems. I never ran out of fuel, my fuel pump just failed. In any case, these repairs aren’t all that hard to get fixed. It is just a little stressful wondering what is wrong with your car. It is nice to know that most of the time it is a simple fix and it won’t take much time to fix once you are towed to a shop.

  • The most common reason I have heard for breakdowns is definitely lack of fuel. I have a few friends that this happens to all the time. I guess they just get a rush out of seeing how long they can go without fueling up. That is, until they need to get their car towed or to bring them fuel.
