An auto repair facility recommending additional non-scheduled maintenance services
without completing a professional diagnostic inspection and validating why the work
should be done may be selling you something your car does not necessarily need.
AAA recommends taking your vehicle to a reliable auto repair shop with skilled
technicians qualified to perform all the needed services your owner’s manual
recommends. For trusted service, use the search feature to find a AAA Approved
Auto Repair facility near you. Each of the more than 7,000 auto repair shops in
the AAA network undergoes a comprehensive investigation and meets AAA’s stringent
standards. Skilled mechanics will evaluate and service your vehicle with quality
auto parts and products, and AAA members receive money-saving benefits.
Even when the unexpected happens on the road and you need a tow truck, do not go
to just any garage. Direct the driver to tow your vehicle to a nearby AAA Approved
Auto Repair shop.
