Help prevent roadside breakdowns with free vehicle inspections from AAA

Each year, AAA comes to the aid of stranded members nearly 30 million times, but remarkably, more than one-quarter of these experiences could be avoided through improved vehicle maintenance.

To help members avoid roadside trouble, participating AAA Approved Auto Repair (AAR) facilities are offering members a free 40-point inspection to help pinpoint any problems. Available through March 31, the inspections include a look at the brakes, battery, fluids, belts, hoses, tires, and more.

To find a participating shop near you for the free inspections, an $80 value, visit or call (844) 256-7232.

Maintaining the condition of your car is vital for your safety, yet a recent AAA survey found that 35 percent of Americans have skipped or delayed service or repairs recommended by a mechanic or specified by the factory maintenance schedule.

To qualify for the AAR program, shops must meet AAA’s high standards for certifications, technical training, cleanliness, insurance requirements, and background checks. They are re-inspected yearly and monitored for customer satisfaction. When AAA members select an AAR facility, they receive discounts and a 24-month/24,000-mile warranty.
