Re: Scott According to JD Power & Associates, for the past 5 years Auto-0wners Insurance (#18 on the list) has been the industry leader for Auto Claims experience :)

I quite agree with Two of the previous comments. The list looks good but what are the consumers saying?

Interesting to see. Good perspective on premium books. I challenge, (just for fun) to compose a list of top consumer choice companies. Claims and service metrics. Watch that list surprise.

Not surprising to see State Farm as #1. Always had their act together. Good to se Nationwide still in top 10.
