all your auto needs.

From the best Roadside Assistance to full Auto Service, you can count on BCAA to provide honest, trusted, expert advice at any BCAA Auto Service Centre location across the province. We provide warranty-approved service, Red Seal Certified Technicians and your satisfaction is guaranteed.

As a BCAA Member, in addition to Member Exclusive Savings on maintenance and repairs, you will receive extra benefits to those included in our BCAA Standard Warranty.



How your warranty works:

Simply put, BCAA guarantees that any new part or service you purchase from a BCAA Auto Service Centre will work as advertised for the duration of the applicable warranty period. Should any part or service fail to meet this standard, we’ll make it right at no additional cost to you. All services provided under your warranty will be honoured at any BCAA Auto Service Centre in accordance with the terms and conditions set out below.


Eligibility Requirements:

  • Warranty coverage only applies to the vehicle and registered owner named on the invoice issued by BCAA for the warrantied part or service
  • To be eligible for warranty coverage, your vehicle must be a privately-owned or leased passenger car, van, light truck or sport utility vehicle that is used exclusively under non-commercial, normal operating conditions. Examples of operating conditions that would void the warranty include: off-roading, racing, motorsports activities, overloading (e.g. towing amounts or weights that exceed the vehicle's towing capacity), and uses that exceed the limits prescribed in the vehicle’s owner’s manual, etc.
  • You must retain and present to your BCAA service technician a copy of the original invoice issued by a BCAA Auto Service Centre for the warrantied parts and services
  • You must pay in full for the parts and labour to which your warranty applies
  • You must bring the vehicle into a BCAA Auto Service Centre to be inspected within the applicable warranty period
  • To enjoy these benefits, you must follow the guidelines and meet the additional eligibility requirements described below

What the warranty excludes coverage for:

  • Any loss, malfunction or damage to a vehicle that has been subject to use beyond normal operating conditions (including off-roading, racing, motorsports activities, or overloading), or the limits prescribed in the vehicle’s owner’s manual
  • Any loss, malfunction or damage caused by a collision or other motor vehicle accident, abuse, theft, vandalism, modifications made by you or a third party, negligence, improper service or maintenance (unless performed at a BCAA Auto Service Centre), any natural disaster (including flooding, freezing, fire, and earthquake damage), defects attributable to the vehicle’s manufacturer, or any failure to keep your vehicle’s motor oil, transmission fluid (including clutch, automatic transmission, transaxle/transfer case and differential fluid) engine coolant, or other operating fluid at the level prescribed by the vehicle’s manufacturer
  • Services performed or parts installed at an alternative repair location after the original work was performed
  • Services performed or parts installed on a commercial use vehicle
  • Any additional exclusions applicable to the part or service purchased

If a mis-alignment is detected within the warranty period (described below), we will realign the vehicle with no additional labour charges.

Alignment Warranty Exclusions
Warranty coverage does not apply when the misalignment was caused by the installation of steering or suspension components after the original alignment was performed.

You’ll get a 6-year warranty on a new battery, with a free replacement if it fails in the first 3 years and a discounted rate for a replacement if it fails in the final 3 years.

Battery Warranty Exclusions
