Wink Why do they spend so much on advertising??

Generally when a company does a ton of television and media advertising its because the product is usually weak and needs a lot of "salesmanship" to get it sold!

If you have a great product, "people will beat a path to your door!"

Who is any better? I won't use State Farm, AAA sucks... Does anyone have any specific examples of Progressive being bad, or is it just general bad-mouthing? I've made three auto claims through them and they were great for all three.

My buddy had new motors in a 30 formula,backed off the trailer and hit a chunk of concrete from the P.O.S. ramp that had "humped up" some how. Stopped one motor instantly, and 2 days later had that motor spin a main bearing. Come to find out it cracked a new steel crank. I would believe that a sudden stop with a solid set up could do this, And progressive said that there is no way it could do that!! Now I will say that it has to do with the adjuster in your area, We have a 25 year old adjuster that has designed boats since he was an infant !!! (if you know what I mean).

I may be wrong but I think George Soros is behind Progressive Insurance. If thats the case, anybody that has a policy with Progressive needs to find a new carrier IMMEDIATELY.
