Roadside Assistance Reviews from Life360 Members
"Took less time than AAA"
"Has all the features I am looking for. Roadside assistance was easy to use and took less time than AAA . I recommend it to all my friends and family."
"We are very impressed!"
"I wanted to thank Life360 for helping me with my car...it started smoking up and it didn't start. We weren't sure the best way to get it towed or a place to call. Then I remembered I had Life360 app that included 5 miles of free towing. The man on the other end of the line was extremely helpful and handled everything for us! This was our first time using Life360 car assistance and we are very impressed!"
"I couldn't be happier with Life360"
"I couldn't be happier with Life360... In one case, I hit a pot hole that caused a blown tire. Life360 promptly had a tire service headed my way and within 45 min I was back on the road. The other was a hit and run that happened to my nephew while he was in another state. Life360 towed the car back to town for us. I'm really impressed and will definitely keep using Life360 for my family."
"You really can't go wrong with Life360"
"I am very satisfied with Life360, when I required roadside assistance their response was very timely, professional and courteous. I highly recommend it. I required roadside assistance for a second time today and as before I am very happy with their courteous and timely response. You really can't go wrong with Life360... My car was stolen and I was able to locate it immediately thanks to this app."
