The automotive club AAA serves more than 52 million members nationwide. Although membership offers myriad benefits, AAAers benefit most from the peace of mind provided by the comprehensive roadside assistance program. On-site mechanical services are available almost anywhere in the United States for common car troubles such as flat tires, dead or murdered batteries, and creamed-corn-related engine troubles. Benefit highlights include free installation of spare tires, free battery boosts, free towing, and free fuel delivery (pay pump price for fuel). Classic members are also entitled to coverage for up to $50 in locksmith services and up to $500 for auto theft.
Auto Care Super Saver relieves car owners of some expenses and fretting with a bundle of maintenance services redeemable during the course of a year. ASE-certified technicians keep rides running smoothly with oil changes that include up to five quarts of standard oil, lube, and a new filter. With the included air-conditioner performance tests, car’s circulatory systems can be cleansed, keeping vents from spewing heat or fully formed snowmen, and the included brake inspection reveals any stopping problems as well as netting customers a $20 discount on any brake service. The cooling-system check calls upon mechanics' expertise to make sure engines are well-suited to reach and maintain the ideal temperature for efficient combustion and hood-top omelet frying. Customers can unleash the services on any of their foreign or domestic vehicles, whether they be station wagons or sports cars.
The fine cheese party-plate of detailing, Liquid Luster’s mobile service provides a variety of cleansing treatments in a conveniently portable format. A thorough interior detail (a $125 value for sedans/coupes; a $150 value for midsize rides) spruces up people-haulers to showroom condition with vacuuming, steam cleaning, and odor neutralizing. Seats are deep-cleaned and protected with leather or upholstery products, while the dash-vents, windows, door panels, center consoles, and instrument panels are outfitted with spotless sheen and rid of clingy fishing lures. Additionally, an exterior wash (a $35 value) efficiently sheds dirt, grime, and leftover residue from everyday high-speed collisions with fruit stands. Customers can opt to have their vehicles cleaned any day of the week at their home, office, or not-so-secret backyard replica of the Fortress of Solitude.
The experienced Automotive Service Excellence–certified mechanics at Dennis Automotive relinquish vehicles from conundrums caused by moistureless motors inside state-of-the-art facilities. Each oil change and chassis lube ($35) swaps old colanders for new filters before topping off tanks with up to 5 quarts of motor oil to keep pistons pumping smoothly. The tire rotation ($19.99) keeps treads from fading in the face of friction by rotating each tire's placement on the car, like a progressive game of musical chairs where everybody wins. While waiting on their repaired roadsters, proud auto owners can relax in either location's comfortable waiting area, replete with televisions, complimentary coffee, Internet access, and clowns who make balloon hats for adults.
