What's the exact service for ADAC Basic membership, in case of a breakdown?
I was on a business trip in Stuttgart last week (I live in Nürnberg) and something went wrong with the Gear system. An ADAC colleague arrived and found the problem. He did a quick fix and suggested that i can "drive it back to Nürnberg" without changing the gear too often. And then he said, if I had "Premium" membership, i could get a rent-car for 7 days for free and let my car be towed back to Nürnberg for free. Because i only have "Basic", regardless to all the free services, my car can only be towed to the closest garage. And the "Closest" doesn't even mean any one in the same city, but somewhere you defined or you are allowed to. The breakdown location is in Stuttgart Stadtmitte. And they refused to tow my car to Möhringen or Vaihingen, saying that "it's outside of the Stuttgart range". Instead, my car is now in Obertürkheim. Why is Obertürkheim within Stuttgart but Vaihingen or Möhringen are not? Anyway, now I have to go Stuttgart again just to get the car back to Nürnberg because the repairing fee is too much. So, for ADAC Basic member, what can I get? Except the service of getting someone quickly to the location, can you tell me, what is the exact tow- able distance?
