Out-of-town breakdowns can leave you in a panic on not knowing what to do.
Here is a short list of things that may help you out.
1. Google "Roadside Assistance" for the area you are in. RA can help with jump starts, changing a tire, and other services that can be handled on the side of the road. They can also help keep you safe with their presence. They can also call for a tow or direct you to a close shop.
2. Look for a AAA Approved Auto Repair Shop. Even if you are not a AAA member it still helps to do business with a AAA Shop. AAA Shops have to go through an approval process and keep a 97% Customer Satisfaction rating to stay approved.
3. Sallas Auto has a Nationwide Warranty, so if something has failed that we have serviced, look for a NAPA Approved Facility. Show them your receipt for services completed at Sallas Auto Repair. The warranty covers parts and labor on qualifying repairs for 24 Months/24,000 miles. The NAPA "Peace Of Mind" Nationwide Warranty Center number is 1-800-452-6272 if you need help with a any details or finding a shop close to you.
4. If it is a highway emergency, (you are blocking a lane on the highway) the Highway Patrol recommends you call 911 as soon as possible, then decide where you are having it towed.
