Car Review from a Tow Truck Driver

My wife and I recently had a vehicle break down (I will write more about that adventure soon) and called AAA for a tow. We found ourselves trapped in the cab for the 35 mile trip with a very chatty driver. Besides running us through his entire work history and calling his wife on his cell phone to tell her about his day one of the observations he offered was his opinion on the best and worst cars on the road. In his opinion the best car out there was the Volvo. In his 5 years of towing he had only towed four of them, and those had not broken down but had been in accidents or had flat tires. The worst vehicle? He said the Jeep Grand Cherokee was hands down the biggest piece of junk on the road. He had towed more of them by far than any other vehicle.

I have not owned either vehicle so I don’t have an opinion but I thought it was interesting to get a car review from someone who tows them every day.
