For almost 40 years, I have counted on AAA for roadside assistance. Whether I had a flat tire or dead battery, AAA has been my safety net on the road. And when the time came for a new car, I learned that AAA could be a partner along every mile of my journey.
After years of driving a gas-guzzling 4×4 truck to make it through the winter storms of northern Indiana, and using our small, fuel-efficient car during clear weather; my wife and I decided to consolidate to one vehicle.
I work as the director of three programs for homeless veterans, so my car isn’t just for getting from point A to point B—it allows me to answer the call anytime, day or night, for those who have answered the call for their country. While we were in Nashville, Tennessee, visiting her mother, my wife suggested that I visit some dealerships. I found the right car at a great price and was ready to pull the trigger, except for one problem: How could I get a loan so far from home?
