Off topic for a GM group but not sure where to ask...
I have always had Amoco Motor Club but thought I would shop around and look
at what others had to offer and for how much. For Premiere membership at
Amoco it is $89 a year, that offers a lot of reimbursement and 100 mile
towing. Next best SOUNDS like AAA. $72 a year for pretty much the same
Has anyone had experience with AAA or other motor clubs that can give their
opinion? I couldn't find any info on the internet to compare them side by
side, or any consumer opinions on the various clubs.
Check with your auto insurance company to see if they offer roadside service
coverage. For example, State Farm offers it for about $4.00 per year if
you already have auto insurance through them. It covers roadside
assistance to get you moving again and towing, if needed, to the nearest
The motor clubs (Amoco, AAA, and so forth) provide services beyond towing
and roadside assistance, such as maps, trip planning, and so forth, so they
cost more than the plans that insurance companies provide. If you just want
roadside assistance and towing coverage, then coverage through your
insurance company might be the best deal.
For all the money I've spent over 13 years on AAA, I have only used
them once. It was for towing my 89 Z 24 convertible when two fuel
injectors died at once.. The Bonneville has never broken down.

I've belonged to AAA since 1988 and have only used it for towing once
and a few maps but it's like insurance, it's great if it's there when
you need it.
I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much
liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.
