AAA Northway Review

This morning the battery in my car was dead and I called AAA Northway to come out and jump-start it. I assumed I had forgotten to turn off the lights. I am 90 and have had this happen many times over the years. What always happens is the guy comes out, attaches two cables to the battery, I start the car, he detaches the cables and we’re done. Driving the car for a few minutes is enough to recharge the battery so it will start next time. | This time the guy from AAA Northway dragged out a huge “test apparatus” and attached it to the dead battery. I asked him what he was doing and he said he was testing it. Then he fooled around with this and that and it went on and on. Eventually he said I had a dead cell. His battery charger was not another car battery in a running car which is how I always do it but a small portable battery. He attached the charging cables to my battery for about 10 seconds, tried to start the car, and of course it wouldn’t even turn over. | Then he went to his truck and brought out a small black no-name, no box, battery for which I paid him $128 plus tax. | My opinion is that I was scammed, and when I belatedly went online I discovered that many other people had the same experience. AAA spends a lot of time making believe they are doing something, to make the customer feel obligated, then sells him a nameless battery at a point where the customer can not do any comparison shopping.
