AAA Complaint - No service Miami Valley AAA/Dayton, Ohio
DAYTON, OHIO -- Got a flat tire about 7:20 A.M. 5/5/11 on the way to work. Called the local number for Miami Valley AAA for 10 minutes only getting a busy signal. Tried the 800 number for Ohio multiple times and the call never went through, just hung up on me each time. Finally decided to call Ford Roadside Assistance and see how much they'd charge to put the spare on. I'd dropped my AAA membership after 30 years when I bought the Ford since it gave me free roadside assistance and had only rejoined AAA 1 year ago when I thought that Ford's plan was expiring. Shock! the Ford plan is good for 5 years not the 36 months I'd thought. Ford answered on the first ring, promised someone in 50 minutes & they arrived in 50 minutes and put the spare on. I feel my money's wasted rejoining AAA since I got no service. My membership expires in less than a month and I'm re-evaluating paying AAA $63 for another year when I couldn't even get put into the queue for an operator.
