Re: AAA for Dummies

I would not go without it!

They have been there for me a few times AND a lot more times for the wife and my daughters. One set of keys locked in, wife ran out of gas, jumpstarts and alot of towing

I have the AAA ULTRA so I get 100 miles of free towing.

I had my loaded pickup towed home after breaking down on the PA turnpike coming back from Gettysburg College w/ my daughters stuff. We were 109 miles from home, cost me around $30.00 for the extra 9 miles and the tolls.

It is also the peace of mind having a daughter call, from 1700 miles away, w/ a car problem and say I think it is XXX, call AAA!

Re: AAA for Dummies

I have AAA and fortunately have never had a breakdown and have to use the services. It does offer peace of mind. I would not be without it!

Re: AAA for Dummies

We have had it for a long time, It has come in handy on more than one occasion when my wife had vehicle problems. I used it once when a battery died on me ad I could start my explorer. I wouldn't be without it.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Yeah, I've been happy with them as well.

Re: AAA for Dummies

AAA is good and most of the time they have reputable mechanic shops tow truck services.

Plus they offer a lot of services to help travelers and vacationers like cheap tickets ect.

Well, sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes, well, he eats you, so the Dude must abide!

Re: AAA for Dummies

It's good, but not great. I do think the basic package is worth it, but one time they had to call out three different tow trucks because the first two couldn't take my type of vehicle and it took hours just to get a tow. I do like the TripTick service they offer which I use on my long trips.
