J.D. has not yet scored Chubb. Although it has not been scored by J.D. Power for its auto insurance, it did so well in other categories that it was among our top five. You should know that Chubb offers a wide range of coverage options. There are coverage options for locks, keys, windows, and even your child’s car seat. You can also get worldwide rental coverage as well as coverage for manufacturer parts. This will cover original parts and not ‘aftermarket’.

Chubb offers discounts on items that you can easily add to your vehicle like anti-theft devices and anti-lock brakes. These devices offer a small savings, but they can lower your premium on an already affordable policy.


MetLife claims customers can save on average $906 per year by bundling their auto policy with homeowners or renters insurance. MetLife offers a wide range of coverage options to fit every budget and need.

MetLife uses technology to keep Michigan roads safer. The My journey(r) app analyzes your driving habits and mobile phone usage and alerts you when you are putting yourself or others in danger. This app is great for young drivers who are covered by your policy.


Geico offers a lot, but the best thing about this provider are the car insurance discounts. Geico can help you save up to 25% on your premium if you insure multiple vehicles. Install an anti-theft device and you could save as much as 23 percent. You will receive a 3 percent discount on daytime lights

Geico has one of the highest customer satisfaction scores in its industry. J.D. It was awarded the top spot in the North Central States by Power


USAA is only available to active or retired military personnel (or their immediate families), but it has been consistently ranked as one of the best business insurance providers. It offers low premiums for full and minimum coverage. It offers military personnel and their families top-notch discounts that aren’t available from other providers. USAA will also reduce your premium if you need to keep your vehicle in a garage during a deployment.

USAA, like Geico has outstanding customer service scores with J.D. Power. Their strength is so great that USAA would be the number one provider in the U.S. with J.D. If it was serving the public, power would be its greatest asset.

  • $100,000 per accident for bodily injuries
  • Property damage: $10,000 per accident
