What does AAA Approved Auto Repair (AAR) mean?
Never feel stressed about car repair again. AAA Approved Auto Repair (AAR) shops offer a one-of-a-kind, unrivaled experience provided by friendly, approachable, and highly trained service staff. All AAR technicians are ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) certified, or factory trained, to meet the industry standard for excellence in automotive repair.

AAA has the largest independently inspected and approved network of repair facilities in North America with more than 7,000 shops. An AAR facility must offer fair pricing, AAA priority service, and discounted labor, and guarantee its repair work for 24 months or 24,000 miles. 

AAA Approved Auto Repair (AAR) Top Shops. What does this mean?
Criteria to be a TOP SHOP: Auto repair facilities in the AAR program are subject to consumer surveys that require an 80% completion rating. Shops must have a minimum of 40 surveys completed annually with at least a 90% approval rating to stay in the AAR program. If a facility’s survey score for the year is above 95%, it qualifies as a Top Shop.
