towing a quattro
Well, thanks for the info on this subject. That is one thing I have alway
s wondered. And, of course, if I ever had to have my car towed, I would have i
t towed *ONLY* on a flatbet! I know that much. But, I always wondered about w
hat would happen if the car was towed without my permission. They use a cheap
service with standard issue towtrucks here, and I figure if they tow it that wa
y (with rear two wheels rolling) than it would seriously mess up the drivetrain
of the car. That scares me enough that I will not park illegally *although I h
ave done it before). And, I seriously doubt that these guys here use that book
before they tow a car. I've seen them do it before (not to my car), and they c
an get a car out of a spot in 1 minute fat! They are not real careful either.
But, they get the job done. Luckly, around here they usually just hit you up w
ith tickets, and don't bother towing.
My two reccomendations to quattro owners are:
1. Don't park illegally. You never know what will happen and I shu
dder at the thought of what could happen.
2. And, like me, always carry a business card of a reputable towin
g service that uses flatbed tucks with you at all times.
(3. If they did tow it incorrectly...can you say lawsuit?)
