What does AAA’s Mechanical First Aid Service cover?


AAA’s roadside technicians will check fluids, wire connections, and more. Note that services are provided “as is,” without any warranty or guarantee, and may be temporary in nature.

If you can’t start your car or drive it safely, AAA can tow it to an approved repair facility. Your covered towing distance will depend on which AAA Membership plan you have chosen.
