I am 51 years old and although I am a member of aarp I have not switched my auto insurance to hartford yet because I thought I would do it when I bought a new car. Well, in the interim, I was hit by a man who is insured with Hartford and he is responsible for having my car repaired. Well, the agent from Hartford first informed me I would have only two choices of places to have my car repaired in Macon, GA. The first choice according to them was Five Star Dodge, Jeep, etc. (a car dealership in Macon that is probably the most crooked dealership in middle Georgia). I say that because they sold me a car about 3 years ago that was a manufactureer's buyback or, lets just say "a lemon" and the only reason I purchased the car was because it looked fine when they gave me only part of the car fax report (something I didn't know at the time). A year later I found out I had been had. What I am getting at is that there was NO WAY I was going to give them my business after that ordeal so I chose Hartford's second option, B&H Body Shop. I wasn't thrilled about using them and it ended up taking (so far) 3 weeks to fix my car (it was only supposed to take 2 days). Now tonight my bumper came off my car driving down the road & is gone so I am going to have to take this car back & have it fixed again. I am rethinking buying Hartford auto insurance now because if those are the places I need to get my car fixed at around here then I don't believe I would be satified with their service. Hartford gave me $26 a day for a rental and none of the places they sent me to had a rental under $33 a day so this accident, that was not my fault, ended up costing me $7 a day for 21 days & Hartford would not compromise. I'm disgusted. From someone else's statements it seems their auto insurance rate increases are as bad as my Blue Cross/Blue Sheild premium increases that I seem to get twice a year. This is really making me leary of why aarp promotes the hartford so highly. What do you think?
