Important Notice

As of February 28, 2014, we have sold our CAA Car Care Centre in Peterborough to 4 Aces Auto Centre Ltd., owned and operated by Darryl Breadner. Darryl was the former owner of the facility prior to selling it to CAA in 2008 and managed the Peterborough Car Care Centre.

As of February 3, 2014, 12 CAA Car Care Centres in South Central Ontario (with the exception of Peterborough) have been sold to Driven Brands. These locations have operated as Meineke Car Care Centres beginning February 4, 2014. Meineke has over 900 centres throughout Canada and the United States that service approximately three million vehicles a year.

CAA is confident that Meineke and 4 Aces Auto Centre Ltd. will continue to offer the level of quality service our customers have come to expect.

These new owners will honour all current, active warranties on parts and labour, as well as tire storage agreements and valid coupons. CAA Dollars® earned at Car Care Centres are tied to membership accounts, and as such are not affected by the sale.

All vehicle repair and maintenance records will remain at the former CAA Car Care Centre location where customers last serviced their vehicles. This will allow the new owners to provide uninterrupted services. All personal information will be treated in accordance with the new owners’ Privacy Policies and the practices of their respective businesses.

The sale of the Car Care Centres will enable CAA to remain focused on the products and services our Members value most, namely Roadside Assistance, Travel and Insurance.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for trusting CAA with their vehicle repair and maintenance needs. We sincerely appreciate your loyalty and patronage. Additional information about this transition can be found below.
