No. When the engine or transmission control unit of your vehicle recognises a serious fault from the engine or transmission, many modern cars will force the vehicle into a ‘limp mode’. The aim of limp mode is to reduce the power output of the vehicle and limit the RPMs of the engine. Doing so enables your car to be driven to a garage without causing further damage to the engine. In order for our Breakdown Policy to apply your vehicle must be rendered completely immobile. Because vehicles in Limp Mode are still driveable, our Breakdown Policy will not recover your vehicle or offer forms of roadside assistance whilst the vehicle remains moveable.
If my car is in Limp Mode will I be recovered?
