Hello all,

I am looking to purchase roadside assistance. I have been a AAA member for a long time, but their membership keeps getting expensive while they cut their services. I also noticed that their techs take hours to service even during daytime.

I have used Good Sam before in other states, but I am not sure if they have a good network here in Greater Seattle area. Has anyone used Good Sam roadside assistance? Is it at least as good as AAA?

Thanks.

I'm interested to see the answers on this question, page. I looked up the Good Sam website, seems like coverage for my wife and me (2 vehicles) would be about $95/year. I'm not sure if this is always the case, but they seem to be running a special right now.

It's always better to use AAA or another service for road side assistance. If you use your car insurance 's program they will count it as a claim and more importantly the other car insurance companies will count it just as evenly as say a car collision. So when you shop for insurance that one roadside tire change will cost you hundreds in marked up insurance quotes since you filed a " claim" that stays on for years. I use Visa pay per use program and skip Progressive's 5 dollars every 6 months for the car roadside assistance. I know for a fact the other companies jacked up my rate quotes when I needed to use Progressive roadside assistance and they saw claims were made.
