Here are the reasons Auto Club (commonly known as AAA) made our attorneys’ list of the best and worst car insurance companies for 2015
Our lawyers think Auto Club insurance — better known as AAA — is okay. Not great, but not terrible. As far as insurance companies go, they’re a solid “meh.”
They certainly used to be better. AAA used to be one of the auto insurance companies I would recommend to my own clients and friends when they ask me who’s a good insurance company for auto insurance these days.
AAA has received a pretty bad J.D. Powers & Associates ratings, which is mostly consistent with what our own attorneys have seen in the auto accident cases we litigate with AAA.
So we added AAA to a section in our attorneys’ guide to the best and worst insurance companies called, “For your consideration.” This way, we can provide you with the facts we considered and then you can be the judge on whether AAA is worthy of your premium dollars.
Our full guide includes more information on each insurer and tips on how to choose the insurance company that’s right for you and your family. You can order a hard copy of the guide or download it for your Smartphone.
Below you will find more info on the good and the bad on AAA.
