There are more car associations out there than ever before. See below for help determining which ones are for you.
American Automobile Association
From the main page (accessed by going to http://aaa.com/) enter your zip code to find your local AAA chapter.
Automobile association memberships and services offered will of course vary from state to state so it is hard to rate the organization overall. We'll leave it to you to compare the services and pricing of your state's automobile association with other organizations - such as AutoVantage - in this category.
Most state-level automobile associations offer roadside assistance, insurance, travel perks and discounts on a variety of automotive and travel related merchandise and services.
It is hard to know if you are actually getting a better deal for things like Carfax used car histories through your automobile association. I suggest that if you are trying to decide if it is worth your while belonging to an automobile association you price out services - like insurance, roadside assistance and costs of car shopping tools if you are in the market for a vehicle - from independent companies and then see how much the same would cost through an automobile association. Don't forget to factor in the annual fee charged by the automobile association.
iDMV .com - Department of Motor Vehicles forms and locations
This isn't an association as such but rather one of those hard to classify sites that is too good to not be listed. Using iDMV you can obtain all kinds of forms from your state's DMV as well as locate DMV offices. Although this site is not associated with any DMV it provides a great free service linking citizens easily and quickly to forms and information.
AutoVantage - Member Benefits
AutoVantage offers many of the services of an automobile association. Without going to each individual state it is hard to know how AutoVantage compares so I suggest you evaluate your local (state) automobile association as well as AutoVantage when you are looking at joining an organization of this type.
AutoVantaage offers roadside assistance, discounts on repairs and car rentals, trip routing services, discounts on travel services and merchandise and much more. You can try the service for one month for $1.
AutoVantage doesn't seem to offer any discounts on car shopping tools like used car histories or any special deals through online shopping sites like CarsDirect.
