Best Way to Save Myself from a Vehicle Breakdown on a Cross-Country Road Trip

It might only be March, but many of us are gearing up for our summer road trip. One of the most popular road trips is to go across the country to visit some of the western national parks or some of the coastal cities like Seattle, San Francisco, or San Diego (find out how much gas you will need to take the Volkswagen Tiguan to San Diego). The last thing you want to have happen on your road trip is a breakdown in the middle of nowhere.
