AAA Roadside Vehicle Service Compliment - AAA Jump-start to battery replacement, a good deal!
MADISON, WISCONSIN -- Had a pleasant encounter [as it turns out] with AAA Roadside Service. Actually, it was more driveway service since my battery died during the night.
Called AAA for a jump start. I had left dome lights on all night for some reason and thought it would be a simple jump with their battery pack. As it turned out the battery had a dead cell so it wasn't long for this world.
At any rate, the driver said that they carried new batteries with them and had one for my Pontiac Vibe in his truck.
Cost: $126.00, tax included / 3 year warranty [replaced on site by AAA if future problem / labor included. Such a deal! Saturday night in 15 degree weather and I was going to go out driving around and try to find a new battery?
This was a good deal no matter how ya slice it. Saved me time and money and got it swapped out at my doorstep.
The battery itself is re-badge as a "AAA Battery" - I'm told that most AAA batteries are made by Johnson Controls.
I called Auto Zone and their Duralast car battery for my vehicle cost $115.00 with labor extra, of course. So the decision was a no-brainer.
On an added note: I have the 'AAA Plus RV" Membership which also includes transport of my motorcycle if needed. Differences between memberships/cost is shown in the table here.
