AAA Approved Auto Repair Shops

AAA Approved Auto Repair

Auto repair can be a frustrating experience. Year after year it’s a leading consumer problem, because people have trouble locating repair facilities  that perform quality work at reasonable prices. You can take your chance and play the odds. Or you can look for the AAA Approved Auto Repair sign or contact your local AAA office.

AAA’s Approved Auto Repair Program takes the gamble out of finding quality auto repair for millions of members. Each year we inspect thousands of repair facilities that think they can meet AAA’s tough, demanding standards for superior performance. Yet only about one-third of these facilities qualify to display the AAA Approved sign. And it is a sure bet they can provide you the highest quality auto care. Don’t take chances. Trust AAA.

AAA’s Approved Auto Repair Facilities have met and maintained AAA’s tough performance standards while providing reliable and courteous service. Here are what AAA demands:

Highly Qualified Automotive Technicians that have earned certification by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.

  • Full Service Repair Facilities that have the right tools and equipment to provide a broad range of  repairs including tune-ups and repairs to engines, brakes,  electrical systems, suspensions and heating/air conditioning systems.            
  • Service Reputation and Workmanship that meets your own tough, demanding standards. Before we approve a facility, we even ask past customers what their experience has been with that facility.        
  • Obtaining AAA approval is just the beginning. To ensure that these high standards are maintained, AAA inspects approved facilities annually and constantly monitors their performance.
