Have you ever had a car breakdown? If it's happened what is the worst case scenario you've had?

Yea, once on our way home on the highway back from the beach .
We were coming back with family friends and the car broke down .
The towers came like 3 hours later, and it was really hot .

Oh tons of times :mad:
My mom was dropping me and my friends to the first part of the seventh Harry Potter movie, and like the car broke down. We only had like twenty minutes to reach, and while my mom was waiting for the people to tow the car, we had to walk like 2 miles

OK here's my worst case scenario we are driving home from a great conference thing in Oxford (about 3 hours from home) and we hear this clunking sound, so we pull over and look, nothing there, then we get back in the car and head for the motorway, but as we are going on, just before we speed up, the right side of the car hits the road and we swerve to the side (right by a whole load of nettles and thorns ) we find out the driver (my friend's mum) is not insured so what do we do? it costs LOADS to get towed un-insured >.<

anyway an hour after that happened, my dad (a.k.a hero!) says we are insured and blah blah so we eventually get picked up about 3 hours after we first broke down, and it takes us a further 5 hours to get home! we arrived home at 5am! and i had to get up at 9am to go to church the following day

the suspension spring had snapped, which was clanking, then the axel went and the tire was ripped by the snapped spring
