Like Amica Mutual and Auto-Owners, Erie Insurance typically flies under the radar. Customers report high levels of satisfaction with service and claims experiences. Erie also grabs the top spot in a national survey of customers' car insurance shopping experiences, with its local agents receiving above average marks. In one owner survey, it gets very good ratings for claims processing, price and service satisfaction -- although some say it is pricier than other options. Erie offers some other impressive benefits that most other insurers charge extra for, such as transportation expenses after an accident, travel costs, personal property and locksmith services. In addition, Erie waives your deductible if you are in an accident with another Erie policy holder. However, the big drawback to Erie Insurance is that it only offers coverage in 11 states, mostly the mid-Atlantic and Midwest.

Watch out for GEICO especially when changing coverages. I have learned the hard way that you can’t trust them to get your changes correct. I was just hit in the rear while stopped at a stop sign. I am trying to go through the collision coverage I am supposed to have only to have GEICO tell me that I removed this coverage a few months ago. The fact of the matter is I did not remove this coverage and never would have done that or agreed to that. Trying to reason with them has been an exercise in futility so far with a supervisor trying to put the onus on me for the problem. I am currently awaiting their final position on their review of this matter, but whatever the outcome I now know I cannot relie on them to get things right and I will always have to check on them. The mistakes they make hurt you, not them.
Comparing auto insurance companies isn't quite like looking at physical products, like vacuums, simply because there are so many variables. Customer reviews aren't easy to come by, and many people only post complaints, not compliments. However, J.D. Power and Associates conducts several large satisfaction surveys that are helpful in choosing the best car insurance companies. ConsumerReports.org has a similar survey-based roundup, rating auto insurance companies on claims satisfaction, price and service. Insure.com is the best, most recently updated source of consumer reviews. We evaluated all of these resources to name the best auto insurance for a wide range of consumers.
The good news is that drivers who are in a higher risk category may have the best luck with large companies, and State Farm certainly fits the bill: It's the biggest car insurer in the nation with more than 18 percent of the market, according to Insure.com. Its size means that State Farm can offer a very wide variety of policies and discounts. Those looking for a more personal car-insurance experience shouldn't write off State Farm because it's huge, though; the company has a large network of agents nationwide for face-to-face service, and those get great reviews for their knowledgeable and helpful and service. In fact, although direct-service insurance companies can usually offer lower rates, experts say a good agent may be able to maximize your good qualities to help ease your rates down a bit more than an impersonal, online agent would.
If your driving record isn't spotless, big companies are worth a look. National insurance companies typically offer a wider variety of policies, so they can take on riskier drivers -- though your rates will be higher than drivers with a clean record. That last part is especially true of drivers that companies are required to cover under state "assigned risk" programs, which secure insurance coverage for anyone legally eligible to drive, even if they have a very poor driving record.
As the largest auto insurer in the country, State Farm has policy options for drivers of all stripes -- including those with a spottier record on the road. It has strong financial ratings and gets good reviews for its availability of local agents, although help is also accessible 24/7 online or by phone. It earns stellar ratings for customer service and its claims service is considered one of the most prompt and reliable of any. See our full review »

Best kept secret in auto insurance. The people are friendly and genuine, very helpful. Grange does not raise your rates just because a deer jumps in front of your brand new car four months after signing up. An insurance company that sticks with me after paying my $8,300 auto body repair bill without raising my rates has earned my business and my trust for a long time!
I have been with Progressive for over two years, but I keep getting bills with extra charges and if I don't pay they will cancel my coverage. I went on line and checked several other companies, but NO success. When I contacted Nationwide, I ran into a problem doing the on line quote, so I called and talked with an agent. He was extremely helpful, got me three times the coverage, road side service, towing and all at a much lower rate! I'm very thankful with the kindness and the outstanding service, that this man and company showed me and how he made me feel, like my business was important to him and his company. I believe that I'm going to be a very satisfied customer and long time client as well!
USAA car insurance plans are flexible and there are several discounts available, customers say, and not just for being in the military. While it fulfills a niche in the car insurance industry, USAA retains a nationwide reach and strong financial ratings with most major rating agencies. Potential customers should note that USAA only does business online and over the phone, so those who want to build a close relationship with an insurance agent may need to look elsewhere. However, customer service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and USAA's phone representatives get high marks for being helpful and knowledgeable. USAA is also a membership-based insurance company, and members get cash rebates in years when claim payouts are low. Most insurance companies offer only coverage for your money -- if you never make a claim, you never get anything back for that payout.
Saved me $370.00 on a three car policy and have nad no problems with the two claims I had within the last three years. Easy to work with on the phone or on line, you can choose your own repair shop and they will back you if the repairs are not correct. Had State Farm before and they did not have a firm handle on my account. I was recieving notification of changes constantly, $11.00 here and $14.00 there. When I would call to inquire, If I could get through they were never sure or justify why the small changes. They took all my pocket change, will not go back, I found a new home after years at SF.
The DriveSafe program is not like other driver-tracking devices in that it won't affect your insurance rates (or your teen's) one way or the other; rather, if offers an ongoing monitoring for parents to put their minds at ease, while being a very big incentive for the teenage driver to drive in a safe, responsible manner. The tradeoff, of course, is privacy and the indignation your son or daughter may feel when mom and dad decide they need to be "tracked." Those are issues that each family has to settle according to its own rules and dynamics; but if you want a higher level of control in those first years or months your teen is behind the wheel, this is the program to provide it.
BTW regarding the wreck- do NOT talk to the other insurance company- the @ fault driver’s insurance company. You’re not required if you have a lawyer. Get a lawyer!! Call them from the hospital if you have to they’ll come to you @ the hospital if you call them there. They’ll even come out to your house. Please don’t let the insurance company screw you. You just want what’s fair & your property covered fairly.
California Law requires that all drivers of vehicles within the State maintain evidence of financial responsibility. California's Low Cost Automobile Program (CLCA) was established by the Legislature in 1999 and exists pursuant to California Insurance Code Section 11629.7 as a program designed to provide income eligible persons with liability insurance protection at affordable rates as a way to meet California's financial responsibility laws.

In addition, it’s running an emu black ecu, is on bc racing coilovers and has a full roll cage (painted orange) fitted. Other modifications include: racing bucket seats, a wrap (done by blueprint), a btcc front end, and many more.
