    Default Car Insurance - What company do you have, and how much do you pay?

    For the last four years, I've been with The Hartford insurance. However, after buying the Chevy, AND getting a supposed "discount" by buying life insurance, I was paying close to $300 a MONTH for insurance. I am under 25, and had one accident when I was 16, however in the state of Montana accidents are only on your record for 3 years. Through the Hartford, though, they had the accident on there from the beginning, and when I informed them that my license was clean, they only lowered the amount by about $10.

    Last week, I used an add from this website and put my information in to try to find some cheaper insurance. State Farm called me on Monday and gave me a quote at $120 a month for the same amount of coverage. After giving them some more info, changing a couple of things, and also buying life insurance, I am now paying $151.48 a month.

    Just curious who others use.

    Just switched to Geico. I was previously with AMICA, who was excellent, but I couldn't justify the additional cost. Geico rates and service (so far) are good. I had a chip in the windshield which was handled promptly, and didn't cost me anything.

    Been with StateFarm for over 25 years. Have 9 policys with them. They have always been great. Lost my house in 05 to hurricane and they were fantastic. Had a check in two weeks.

    Iím with The Hartford (AARP) for home, umbrella and auto insurance for the last 5 years. Got a really good deal and saved close to $400 when I switched over. The Hartford has one of the best customer services IMO.
