The one advantage to having AAA, or at least the Plus, is you can be towed up to 100 miles to any destination.
Not sure if that helps or not.

Another advantage to AAA is that is works for ANY car that the subscriber happens to be in, even if they don't own that car. My daughter was out with a friend recently, and the friend's car died. Altough she didn't have AAA, my daughter did, and was able to use it to get her friend's car towed. A vehicle-specific roadside assistance program applies only to the specific vehicle it came with.

We got a Subaru Gold warranty, and that includes roadside assistance for the full 7 years of our plan.
That plus a GPS, I no longer have a need for AAA.

I bought my '08 OXT at Austin Subaru, and have been back twice for minor stuff - one being a defective tire, which they replaced even thought tires carry their own warranty. So far (while in warranty) they've been very good.
For after-warranty, I've been taking our older cars to Moonlight Automotive in Kyle. Gillbert Maldonado runs a one-man shop, and has maybe 15-20 years (I forget what he said) with a Subie dealer in New Orleans. He just swapped out a CV joint and axle on my son's '98 Outback Sport for $150 total - parts and labor(!). He has done several other things for us and has always been conscientious, honest, and inexpensive. Good guy!
