Comprehensive USAA Car Insurance Review
USAA is one of the best car insurance companies in the country, according to a survey of real policyholders conducted by
Jerry. It earns top ratings for customer satisfaction, despite having higher-than-average insurance policy premiums and strict membership requirements to join.
Jerry, we carried out a comprehensive nationwide study on car insurance with more than 18,000 policyholders across all 50 states. We surveyed attitudes on different companies, specifically how people felt about cost, claims handling, renewals, and more.
