I was under the impression that rates are filed with and approved by the State that the Insurer is operating in. Therefore I find it odd that some feel they were lured in and increased the following year or that a renewal can fluctuate from one mailing to the next .

Progressive is owned by George Soros, that should tell you all you need.......

You will not catch me with any Progressive coverage for any of my vehicles. Besides have heard too many stories about hassles to get repairs done, whether your fault or the other driver with Progressive.

Brake/clutch levers, rearsets("pegs"), exhaust, etc. They said it was a "race bike" and they don't pay claims on race bikes. Didn't stop them from taking my premiums though. At the time I was not a racer. The bike was registered, tagged, in street trim with headlights, tail lights, turn signals(none of which are legal on ANY race bike) and 100% street legal. It was actually the bike I commuted on daily. Had over 40k on the odometer. It was not a race bike. They knew exactly what they were insuring. They insure thousands and thousands of them. They run motorcycle specific ads to target audiences during televised motorcycle racing. They are crooks and what they did should be illegal.

Thanks for the explanation. That sounds like an appeal or law suit or a State Ins Dept investigation IMO.

We had Progressive... then I noticed our coach rate was increasing... I had no claims or tickets so I called and inquired as to why our rate was going up... and I was told: "We have a new "risk algorithm" and based on your age when you first applied for a credit card your rate was increased"! HUH!!!!!!!!! I'm in my 60ties, we have an 830 credit score and your increasing my insurance "risk and subsequent rate" based on my age when I first applied for a credit card... 40+ YEARS AGO??? YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME!! Didn't bother engaging the Progressive Rep in their applied logic... We had a new insurance company the next day!! Ah, folks... ya been wondering why your Progressive rates have been increasing?? Ya might want to call and ask... You can't make this kind of stuff up!!

I had progressive on both the RV and our autos. Before progressive my wife's car was hit by another car and Progressive was more responsive to us than was AAA. Progressive followed up with telephone calls whereas we had to kind of chase down our insurance agent. On the motorhome Progressive was purchased through HiSage Marketing in Escondido, CA. After a couple or more years HiSage recommended we change to another company that provided the same coverage at a somewhat lower rate. We were happy with Progressive and would use them again if the need arises. I have no "customer loyalty" to a large insurance business.
