AAA Roadside Assistance Membership Complaint - AAA Membership
AAA Roadside Assistance club has been happily accepting my money for the past ten years without a service call requested. My summer vacation became an unbelievable nightmare. First my transmission line blew about 45 minutes from home, to which I was towed to my house for repairs. Having lost a day of vacation I set out again. Camping 6 hours from home, my truck key was lost/stolen and once again I needed AAA to get a dealer (an hour away) to make a replacement key. Finally on my way home and still (5 1/2 hours away) my alternator went and needed a ride to get a replacement, which I installed myself on the side of the road. I was grateful to have had AAA during this extraordinary period of bad luck.
Then it got even worse there. While I still had another service call on my current membership, if needed, (allowed four per year), I was informed by AAA that they would not renew my current membership plan. I never asked to have that string of bad luck nor did I ever ask nor expect refunds for the years I did not need a service call. AAA is eager to cash your check but just as eager to drop you should you need their services. Since that time I have found another automobile club with better benefits and for less money. They have now earned my future business - bye bye AAA.
