Default SOS and Peugeot Assist

Hi all,

Just wondered if anyone has ever used the black assist or red SOS buttons in the roof pod yet.

I haven't dared touch them and apart from Dautres trying the assist button a year ago haven't read any posts about the buttons yet.

Any feedback from anyone who's used the buttons?

Paul

I pressed the SOS button in my 508GT a couple of years ago after seeing a young girl run over on a pedestrian crossing in Norwich.
The call went direct to emergency services so that worked very well.
The girl, by the way, survived with a broken leg and bruises. The dipstick tw"t driver got jail for dangerous driving and drug driving. Should have publicly flogged her with razor wire as well!!
I also pressed the Pug assist button when I couldn't get a locking wheel nut off when I got a puncture. Call went to the AA i think. Got told they wouldn't come out to change a wheel. I explained the problem a little more fully but still wouldn't budge. Another reason I take the locking nuts off as soon as I get a car. And also refuse to patron the AA now..

First thing I do is remove locking bolts. They're more trouble than they are worth. Besides, if you have bolt caps who can tell if you have locking ones?
I just buy 4 second hand bolts from Ebay, usually 5/6 tops.

I had to have one forcefully removed from my 508 GT not long after I bought it, needless to say the other 3 where quickly removed and filed neatly in the bin.

Hi Paul, today whilst attempting to do a reset by holding both buttons in together I must have accidently held in the SOS button first and a call went to the emergency centre, a very nice understanding lady asked me if I needed assistance to which I replied that it was a mistake and apologised profusely, she then cancelled the request and proceeded to explain to me the functions of the two buttons in great detail! So the SOS button works at least! Len.

I had a blow out on M1 today, I used the black Peugeot button to get assistance and it connected me with an operator in Germany, she couldn't help me but gave me the number of Peugeot UK who I called on my mobile, so what is the use of the button in the car I ask myself!!

Hi, car insurance coming up for renewal, very soon. Is the Peugeot Assist a good replacement for Breakdown cover ? My quote will be cheaper without breakdown.
Ive got it included in the car I bought in September...

Hi Fletch,
the AA cover only last for 12 months so it's not that good if your car is a few months old. Also if you see the post above I left you'll see the AA are not that helpful.

Must be because you've been closeted in those valleys perhaps?
