If an accident or personal injury were to occur during your trip, would you be ready to deal with it?

Nobody wants to be stuck on the side of the road, but the AAA Adventurer Road Assistance Kit will help keep you safe and comfortable while you are waiting for help.

Seventy-three pieces sounds like a great deal or bargain; however, keep in mind that one alcohol prep or small pamphlet is counted within that number. In addition, the accompanying hand-tools (e.g. screw driver, pliers) are of very low quality.
Overall, the kit is recommended, but users may consider supplementing the hand tools for better brands, such as Craftsman or Stanley, and adding other useful materials, such as air foam to fill tires, ice scraper (if one lives in cold climates), and much more.
Also, unless there is plenty of room in front of or along side of the vehicle that needs to be jumped, 10' of cable length may be insufficient to connect the battery of the donor car and the battery of the disabled car. For example, my car has it's batter on the driver's side of the engine compartment and my pickup has its battery on the passenger side. If both vehicles were facing the same direction and parked next to each other with the car on the driver's side of the pickup, the two batteries would be more than 10' apart. The easy solution, of course, would be to park the vehicles facing each other or to park the car on the other side of the pickup. Then, a 10' cable would reach. The problem with this easy solution, of course, is that an obstacle (such as a telephone pole, another car, or a fence) may prevent the donor car from being parked where you'd otherwise want it to be.
For these reasons, unless you have a small car with a battery that's unusually easy to reach from all directions, I'd recommend carrying booster cables that are at least 6 gauge and 16' in length.
I bought two of these; one for my car and one for my husbands. Actually, he cut his finger pretty bad the other day so we got in the first aid part of the kit and used a band-aid!!
I got this last year, and checked everything out when it arrived, averting thing seemed okay, and I assumed that it would be in working order. Boy was I wrong.
Last week we had a terrible rain storm and I got a flat tire, so I tried to use the air pump to fill up my tire so I could get to a service station. What a waste of money. As soon as I plug it into my cigarette lighter not only did it not work, but it burned my cigarette lighter out!
So in summation
a)I was stranded alone at night on the side of the road in a torrential down pour
b)Could not get to a service station to get my tire fixed
c)Had to call for road side assistance
d)It broke my car
e)It would cost me even more money to return it than the cost of the item; not to mention the cost of the road side assistance, and to repair my cigarette lighter, and the cost of a new air pump to replace the "new" air pump that I purchased.
In my book this deserves 0 stars... minus one for each of the above.
I purchased this thinking that it would provide me with some security and saftey on the road, and it seems to have done the completed opposite of what I purchased this for.
