“I’m a shocking driver”

“I’m a shocking driver,” says England cricketer Freddie Flintoff. “I’ve had lots of minor scrapes in the past but the worst was when I filled up my Volkswagen Touareg with petrol instead of diesel. I broke down in rush hour.”

  1. Flat battery
  2. Flat tyre or tyre blowout
  3. Keys locked in vehicle or keys lost
  4. Electrical fault
  5. Transmission failure (includes a bust clutch).
  6. No petrol. Doh!
  7. Blown head gasket – ouch. This seals the cylinders in your engine.
  8. Starter motor problems
  9. Other engine probs – for instance, your alternator.
  10. Mis-fuelling – sticking petrol in a diesel car.
