Good neighbours.

My cell phone does not work outside the city . . . so it is a waste of time. When your car dies, you are dependant on others to get you back to a tow truck.

Communications (cell phone, On-Star) I think this is the best because having an emergency kit, extra food, blanket, etc. is very good. If you don't have a phone or way to let someone know you're broke down-you may need the food, blanket and other provisions. From experience I know not many people stop and help.

In no particular order, jumper cables, spare tire/jack, cell phone. All are equally as important, and not different enough to pick one over the other.

It's hard to pick just one. I think jack and spare.
