    Australasia 2.5 tonne insurance issue with RACV in Victoria Australia

    It pays to read the fine print. RACV and many other insurance companies offer a new vehicle replacement if your car is a total write off in the first two years (as does the RACV). I questioned this and confirmed that even thought the RACV is listing its Market Value at $109k that they would...
