Review 1 of 67

Price Paid:  $15000.00 from dealer

Year / Model Reviewed:
2001 Chevy Blazer

Summary:
I'm a 25 year costumer with minimal claims history. After a minor fender bender, Nationwide paid the other party a bodily injury settlement WITHOUT REQUIRING ANY PROOF OF INJURY. That's right, no doctor visit, no treatment, just on their 'good word'. They then doubled my premiums for having caused a bodily injury accident. I will NOT be a 26 year customer.

Review 2 of 67

Price Paid:  $157.00 from Nationwide Insurance

Year / Model Reviewed:
1989 Ford Taurus

Strengths:
no strengths

Weaknesses:
1) entirely too expensive for liability only insurance
2) Claims adjusters are verbally abusive and confrontational
3) Nationwide was not on my side

Summary:
I was involved in a 3 car accident where the middle car was ticketed by police on several infractions causing irreparable damage to the front car and minimal damage to our car from a ricochet off the front car. The claim adjuster told me the accident was my fault despite the determination of the police investigation and the testimony of my elf, my passanger and the driver and passenger of the front car. He was verbally abusive and told me my story was "BS"(using the word). And was believeable of the testimony of the middle car(the one ticketed for multiple infractions by the police and convicted in court because all parties testified against her)

Review 3 of 67

Price Paid:  $0.00

Year / Model Reviewed:
2002 MAZDA

Strengths:
NONE

Weaknesses:
EVERYTHING

Summary:
Funny i bother writing this, ALL insurance companies use the bait and switch method. we are forced to line their pockets and they take advantage of the folks who make no claims and are clean. They use slimy tactics to lure you in then raise your rates above inflationary rates.
to sum it up, THEY ARE ALL THE SAME
I dropped nationwide because they raised my rates 5 times the ate of inflation, I have no accidents no claims on either my home or vehilce for over 25 years.
you have to keep switching insurance companies to play their bait and switch game. they all lie and deceive...

Review 4 of 67

Price Paid:  $0.00

Strengths:
None, from my experience.

Weaknesses:
Dishonest.

Summary:
Don't be fooled by Nationwide's slogan. They appear to only pay what the law will force them to pay. Example: Their policyholder started a fire by backing into landscaping. The fire damaged four cars. They only paid for damage to one car. Nationwide stated.."Our responsibility is to reimburse those claims for which our insured is legally responsible". Not only didn't they pay for the other cars that were damaged, they subjected their policyholder to a lawsuit because Nationwide wouldn't pay $3100 for damages. Their policyholder had to take off from work to show up in court. On their side? No way!
Worst of all, dishonesty doesn't seem to be beyond them. They provided the Dept. of Insurance with misrepresentations. For example, Nationwide stated "there is no evidence to support that the vehicle was parked in such a way where the exhaust was touching, buried, or had any contact with the landscaping or pine straw." However, the official fire report state that the fire was started by their policyholder's muffler in pine straw. I was able to talk with the investigating fireman who stated the muffler was "buried in the pine straw". Nationwide conveniently, said they were unable to contact the fireman when it only took me two phone calls! The policyholder's car owner's manual even stated not to park over flammable material which indicates negligence.

Choosing an insurance company based on cost is important. But choosing an insurance company that is responsible and will be on your side is even more important. Avoid companies that have a track record of bad faith. One helpful web site that lists the good and bad companies is the following...

Review 5 of 67

Price Paid:  $0.00

Year / Model Reviewed:
2005 2005 Dodge Dakota

Strengths:
Unknown

Weaknesses:
High Cost

Summary:
My father is a 86 year old WWII soldier who saw Normandy Beach at D-Day. He retired as school bus driver with no automotive accidents in over twenty years. I help him with his bills since his wife died last year. Nationwide Insurance in Moorefield WV decided to increase his rate by 19%. I spoke with then and was told that there was an accross-the-board increase, and he was an 86 old man. This is the reason for his high cost of insurance today. This company is not "on your side". They are in your wallet.
