President's Message - October is National Car Care Month

Kirk Hendrix

With October serving as National Car Care Month, we want to make you aware of the vast network of experts you have access to as part of your AAA membership.

As a consumer population, we are holding onto our cars longer than ever before.  The average age car on the road is nearly 12 years old.  Part of what keeps them functioning that long is routine maintenance and expert mechanical and auto body repair.  And that’s where we come in, offering a certified network of experts throughout Hoosier Motor Club’s territory.

Hoosier Motor Club offers more than 100 Approved Auto Repair (AAR) and Approved Auto Body (AAB) facilities in our footprint.  Our AAR and AAB partners include only those shops that pass our rigorous review process which includes quarterly evaluations and annual re-certifications. All shops must maintain a 90% customer quality rating and have Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certifications in each major category. The quality of their work is guaranteed with a 24/24 warranty, meaning their repairs are guaranteed for 24 months or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first.  And if we tow your vehicle to one of our partners, an initial diagnosis and/or cost estimate will be provided on tow calls within 60 minutes of arrival.  You’ll also receive a minimum of 10% off labor costs (up to $50 in some areas) at AAA Approved Auto Repair facilities, in addition to a free maintenance inspection with any paid service.  All you need to do to activate this great member benefit is to reach out to our network of experts by visiting our website, There you will be able to locate a AAA approved auto repair shop near you.

Speaking of convenient member benefits, we have made it easier for you to renew your membership. Just go to, sign in or create an account, and click on Automatic Renewal. Or call 800-874-7317.  When the time comes for you to renew your annual membership, your dues will automatically be charged to your credit card. No worry about lapsed coverage or late payments.  No checks to write.  No stamps to affix. No delays in postal service.  

We have also made it very easy to acquire an insurance quote in only a matter of minutes. If you’re in the market for insurance (auto, home, life…even pet), we can provide a quick quote when you go to, or when you call us at 866-209-8442.

We value you as a member.  It’s good to be in the club.
