What does it take to achieve the AAA Approved Auto Repair designation? It's not easy.

  • The facility must employ ASE-certified or factory-trained technicians in each area of service it offers
  • Approved shops must have a proven community reputation. This is determined by a financial report, a consumer protection agency report, and a customer satisfaction survey.
  • The facility has to maintain a clean, professionally organized appearance - inside and out. Customer areas are always clean and comfortable.
  • The shop must meet minimum insurance requirements for the protection of its customers and their cars.
  • After approval, each shop is inspected quarterly and must undergo annual program recertification.

Mechanics you can trust

The network of AAA Approved Auto Repair locations takes the guesswork out of choosing a trustworthy shop. We've done the work for you by identifying these local facilities that have met our stringent customer service guidelines. And, if there's a problem, AAA stands behind all repairs with dispute resolution on your behalf.



Used Cars


The car as we know it is on the way out. To a large extent, I deplore its passing, for as a basically old-fashioned machine, it enshrines a basically old-fashioned idea: freedom. In terms of pollution, noise and human life, the price of that freedom may be high, but perhaps the car, by the very muddle and confusion it causes, may be holding back the remorseless spread of the regimented, electronic society. --J. G. Ballard (b. 1930), British author. The Car, The Future (first published in Drive, London, Autumn 1971; repr. in Re/Search, no. 8/9, San Francisco
