I went in to check the price of tickets for somewhere I'm traveling to and I was told it was more expensive then just buying tickets on the place's website. The AAA price sheet they go off for pricing at the business was wrong, making the discount price incorrect. That's definitely not how this works.

Great service with honesty! I have had multiple family cars serviced at this location, mostly oil changes and brakes. Thought I needed my brakes done. Wes, the mechanic, informed me they were O.K. for the time being. When money is tight, honesty like that is HUGE. Thank you Wes for both your expertise and honesty!!!

I brought 2 cars to this AAA location to get 4 tires replaces on each. I had an appointment at noon for both cars, two days apart. When I made the appointments I was told that it should take about an hour and a half to change the 4 tires. That's a little longer than I expected, but whatever, it's reasonable. First, I brought in my Subaru Forester. It took about an hour and 45 minutes and the whole experience was pretty good. I was happy with AAA as I drove my Subaru home. Two days later, I brought in my Toyota Corolla. After 2 hours and 45 minutes, I stopped by to see how it was going. I was told that 3 of the 4 tires were installed and that it shouldn't take that much longer. I decided to wait inside and watch through the window as my car sat untouched for another hour. At the 4.5 hour mark the guy at the desk told me that the alignment would need to be fixed and asked me if I wanted them to do it. I knew my alignment wasn't quite right when I went there, but it was an hour and a half until they closed and based on the time to replace the tires I really didn't know if they were capable of finishing it before then. Plus at this point, I would rather pay someone else double to fix my alignment than AAA. When I was asked if I wanted to become a AAA member, I almost laughed. I ended up leaving 4 hours and 55 minutes after I dropped off my car. It took almost 5 hours to do what I would expect a reputable mechanic to do in 45 minutes to an hour. I was not happy with AAA as I drove my Toyota home. I can't imagine ever using AAA again.

Very nice staff and very helpful. They have notary services which is amazing and there roadside service plan is 5 stars. I just rejoined after many years without a membership and look forward to using it again over the next year. Have not used the auto repair services yet. So holding on the fifth star until I try it all out.

I had the pleasure of coming into AAA & getting taken care of right away. Chris Roy Sr (Assistant Mgr) was very Attentive to what I needed done & did it right away. He was able to squeeze me in for a fix up & did it extremely professionally. Great service & atmosphere! Will definitely be returning to them for service!

BEWARE OF THIS SHOP! Terrible service from start to finish. I invested $1,900 to fix up a 2012 Nissan Versa that died on the road. The manager up sold me on many items, including 4 new tires when only needed 2 tires. Then, he let me pay in full and drive off in a car that was not even given a test drive. It chugged and stalled 3 times in moving traffic!!! I had to turn around and drive slowly back to the shop. Bottom line, they won't offer a dime to pay us back for maintenance that shouldn't have been done in the first place OR for the danger they put me in by letting me drive off in a car that kept stalling!!! We will be calling AAA Headquarters and suing if necessary.

My tires blew out on July 9th after running over a curb. I immediately contacted AAA who suggested that I tow my car to this facility. The car was towed to this facility and I was recommend to change the two tires on the passenger side as they blew out. After receiving the car there was loud buzzing noise coming at 55+ mph. After notifying AAA and speaking with Wes, he decided to test drive the car and confirmed the noise. I am disappointing that nobody test drove the car after installing the tires. Now I am resuming further repairs with GEICO insurance.

I do not recommend any establishment that blatantly lies to your face. Be aware of a smug little man with a “short mans syndrome” that works on Sunday's. He lies and is lazy. Try NTB or Mr Tire just a couple of miles away for great service!

These guys have lost my trust and business. I will be cancelling my AAA membership. Very terrible experience. Three strikes and you're out. 1. Took my wife's car there and mechanic dismissed her concerns insisting that the battery just needed a charge (when we came from advance and their system read a dead cell) left and the car died within 24 hours. 2. Came back, got a new alternator installed. Car died within 24 hours again. 3. AAA claims defective part. Get alternator replaced again. 3 visits for 1 fix. My car dies. I specifically write need new alternator on my drop tag. Mechanic calls and says they had to disconnect and reconnect the battery (I had tried jumping the car 3 times, battery kept dying... alternator issue). Receive my car and wouldn't you know it, within 24 hours car dies. I jump it, and battery light is still on, car keeps dying. Take it to firestone, they say the issue IS the alternator.

Come on AAA, if you are under-staffed, hire more people. I scheduled for a 7am oil change. But I didn't walk out of the store until 8:45am. I was told that my car was ready at 8am, but the only guy working the phone was so busy, that he couldn't check me out. Also, way to be dishonest. I literally just replaced my air cabin filter yesterday. But still today was told that my air cabin filter is "dirty, and should be replaced." I am sure your technician didn't even check my filter. Now I am worried that if my oil was even changed! I don't think I will come back anymore. Update: AAA reached out to me to contact them directly. I did, and nothing happened. No follow up, no anything. AAA is trying to make you think that they will correct their bad behaviors. But don't be fooled.
