USA: Toyota telematics connects to AAA roadside assistance

Access to AAA’s roadside assistance is available at the push of a button via Safety Connect in select 2010 model year and newer Toyota and Lexus models.

Safety Connect is Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc.’s proprietary telematics system that offers automatic collision notification, stolen vehicle location, emergency assistance and connection to roadside assistance.

AAA members with an equipped Safety Connect vehicle can request AAA roadside assistance with the push of a button. The member can be connected to a AAA service operator and their vehicle’s GPS location will be provided to AAA to assist in quickly locating the member and providing assistance.

“Toyota’s Safety Connect is an innovative system to enhance motorists’ convenience, safety and consumer choice,” said Marshall L. Doney, AAA Automotive vice president. “As the nation’s largest motor club, AAA applauds Toyota for having the vision to provide consumers a choice when using the technology integrated into their vehicles.”

For Toyota vehicle owners who are not AAA members and for Lexus owners who do not have a roadside assistance provider as part of their warranty, Safety Connect call center agents will help them receive aid.
