DAYTON, OH - While most people know to call AAA when their vehicle breaks down, they may not know that the same 117 year-old company responsible for servicing nearly 110,000 roadside assistance calls so far this year in Miami Valley has quietly grown into a major auto repair company. With colder temperatures in the forecast, leaders at AAA are reminded just how important car care is not only to drivers, but to the organization.  The AAA affiliate now has 83 total repair facilities, including the new AAA Tire & Auto that recently opened in Troy. 

According to Tom Wiedemann, CEO of AAA Club Alliance, growing into a major provider of car care repair services is an instinctive fit for an organization that assists thousands of motorists every day. 

“We want to build on a legacy that is AAA, which means helping our members get where they need to go as we continue our legendary roadside assistance and offer new ways of meeting members’ mobility and lifestyle needs,” says Wiedemann. 

Each AAA Tire & Auto store offers trusted services including vehicle maintenance, diagnostics and repairs such as tires, brakes, tune-ups, air conditioning and cooling systems, as well as access to expert travel advice and insurance services all under one roof serving as a natural extension of the auto club’s original mission for its members and the motoring public. 

“AAA is expanding its auto repair network and making significant investments in local auto repair locations to help bring motorists convenience and peace of mind when it comes to their vehicles,” says Craig Sumerel, President of Car Care and Auto Wash for AAA Club Alliance. “We are in the communities we serve, bringing the same trusted brand motorists know for roadside rescues to the repair of their automobiles.”

AAA Club Alliance serves more than 6 million members in 13 states and the District of Columbia.  The Miami Valley area repair locations are:

Beavercreek: 3321 Dayton Xenia Road, Dayton, Ohio 45432

Beavercreek: 3870 Kemp Road, Beavercreek, Ohio 45431

Downtown Dayton: 200 East Third Street, Dayton, Ohio 45402
