Yup, just link your CAA card on the Petro Card 'My Points' website and you're golden.

Just got a brand new 2013 Golf that comes with Roadside Assistance for 4 years. I haven't had a chance to look at the difference, but i'm guessing that the VW Roadside Assistance would cover most things from CAA? Any real need to have both?

Your factory roadside assistance only covers the car. CAA covers the driver, regardless of what car you are in. So if you have multiple vehicles in the family, CAAcovers them all with one membership as long as you are driving it at the time it breaks down.

I posted some info several posts up. Only NEW members can get a discount. But it is really a decent deal. The form can be downloaded and faxed or scanned:



Also, if you are already a member, you can get an associate membership for 50% off.

True! Wasn't thinking about that, but I don't drive anything else, so that'll be fine for now. Thanks!

There may also be restrictions on the factory roadside assistance. For example, they may only tow the vehicle to a VW dealership. I guess if you are under warranty, thats not a problem. But many people prefer to have the flexibility of having their car towed where they want. Like to your own driveway, or your own trusted mechanic, for example.

Thanks Nigel! Those discounts are pretty good. I let my CAA lapse a few years ago, so I guess I'd be considered a 'new' client. I guess we'll see, lol.

This looks good to me. I'm going to join. Just wondering if I went with the Plus membership and use my 4 tows in one year, how much would they charge for a 5th tow, if needed?

That is correct. We are registered with CAA. Just fill out the form, print it and you can either fax it, or scan it and send it to the account rep (Judy) for processing.
