Automotive Advisors: The value of becoming a AAA member
Have you considered the benefits of an AAA membership?
There are a number of great reasons to join, including travel discounts, trip planning assistance, cellphone discounts and identity theft monitoring. AAA currently offers three levels of membership: Classic, AAA Plus and AAA Premier, allowing automobile owners to choose the membership that best suits their needs.
The AAA Approved Auto Repair program was established in 1975 to address one of the most frequent consumer complaints: unsatisfactory automobile repairs.
AAA provides drivers with peace of mind. In the event a car breaks down, AAA will tow it to an authorized AAA auto repair facility, like Shawnee Christian Brothers Automotive, free of charge.
Below are a few additional benefits you may not be aware of that are included with an AAA membership:
AAA will test, diagnose and even replace a battery on the spot to help prevent drivers from ending up on the roadside in the future. Technicians will drive directly to your vehicle, wherever it is, whether it’s operational or not.
At an authorized AAA auto repair center, like Shawnee Christian Brothers Automotive, AAA members receive a 10 percent discount (up to $50) on all automotive maintenance or repair items. Members also enjoy 24-month/24,000-mile parts and labor guarantees on all service and mechanical repairs. If an AAA member is unsatisfied with the service or repairs received at an AAA Approved Auto Repair facility, the facility agrees, through its affiliation with AAA, to correct the member’s concern, no matter what it takes.
Just by showing your AAA membership card, you can enjoy exclusive, instant AAA discounts at more than 160,000 partner locations worldwide.
Staying safe on the road
If a driver runs out of gas, AAA will provide emergency fuel delivery. AAA will also unlock a vehicle free of charge if a member locks themselves out by mistake. That’s great peace of mind for all drivers, but especially for parents, who may be worried about teen drivers whose minds may wander.
