The Value of a Vehicle Maintenance Inspection
Peace of mind is free for AAA Members at Approved Auto Repair shops.
Taking your vehicle to the shop for routine maintenance such as an oil change or tire rotation is one of the best ways to prevent it from breaking down on the road, but that alone isn’t enough to ensure a vehicle won’t break down. Having it periodically inspected by a certified technician helps identify problems before they stop you in your tracks.
AAA Members receive a free vehicle maintenance inspection at thousands of AAA Approved Auto Repair facilities nationwide where a certified technician will examine components most often responsible for a breakdown. The list of things they check can include—but is not limited to—fluid level and quality, tire condition, battery, belts and hoses, burned-out lights and more.
But that’s not the only reason to take your vehicle to a AAA Approved Auto Repair shop. In addition to the free inspection, AAA Members also receive a 10 percent discount on labor for any work done as well as a 24-month/24,000-mile guarantee on parts and labor, which was recently doubled from its previous 12/12 protection.
Many AAA Members take advantage of the free inspection when they bring in their vehicle for routine maintenance, such as an oil change or tire rotation. But this service also provides great value in other situations, such as checking it for road-readiness before taking it on a long trip.
