Rated 5 out of 5 by from A VERY STRESS-FREE EXPERIENCE Everything was handled for us by NRMA and the smash repairer. What could have been a traumatic experience, was all taken care of and completely stress-free. Having a hire care made a big difference too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vandalism Outcome My Audi A6 Quatro with the 3 litre turbo diesel engine was my retirement gift to myself and my pride and joy. I drove into a service station which I had used several times previously and filled up. I was not aware that someone had switched the pump handles over and the one clearly marked diesel was actually E10 petrol. I drove from the Central Coast to Sydney where the car would not restart. NRMA transported the car to a mechanical workshop recommended by them and the next day catastrophic damage was reported to me. I was advised that most insurance companies will classify this type of damage as the result of neglect by the driver and will not cover repair. I was in acute shock when I rang NRMA and explained. From that point on the whole experience was one of absolute professional care and efficiency. My explanation was accepted, the car was assessed and the workshop given the go ahead to examine the damage. The assessor determined that the workshop was well equipped to deal with an Audi and kept regular very professional contact with the mechanics. It was decided that the car could be repaired, albeit at great cost, and this was done. I paid my excess and now have my beloved Audi back and am just so, so, thankful that I have had all of my insurances with NRMA since 1977.
