AAA Complaint - It's A Ripoff, Do Not Go With AAA
LEWISVILLE, TEXAS -- Just to say, me and my wife are really good drivers so far:
Me: 250K miles, 9 years, no accidents, no tickets, no claims.
My wife: 130K miles, 6 years, no nothing.
1) They sign you up for a "plan" for a year, and if on any reason you will no longer need your coverage, albeit a day before your year expires, they'll charge 10% of your yearly premium to "brake" the contract!!! UNHEARD of outrage! Insurance is NOT an apartment lease!!!
2) I've been w/AAA Chicago for 5 years (more -r less positive), then went to work outside the country for 2 years. Had a car abroad, and had it covered all the time w/a major European company, MMA. They took my US insurance history, and once I went back they gave me a nice summary letter of their own. AAA would not honor it!!! I've got policy for a miserly old 95 Mazda Protege with AAA that was 30% more expensive that I am covering my 2 vehicles now (added a brand new SUV), and the coverage now is about 30% better - I actually got full coverage on both my vehicles!!!
3) They have managed to lose my cancellation request letter despite the fact that I handed it to my agent IN PERSON (also, no other company I heard of does not require any kind of letter - I'd just call and say I no longer need coverage!).
4) After the policy was finally "canceled", I started getting bills and calls demanding for more money (and they have not been pro-rating policy usage correctly!!!), so it was just MONEY EXTORTION attempt at its classic best.
Bottom line: Never before was I offended w/insurance in such way as with AAA.
I swore revenge - I will be leaving these reviews so AAA loses $$$$ in clients and respect, and I won't stop. I hope my review will cost them at least YOUR business!
My request to all:
IT"S A RIPOFF, DO NOT GO WITH AAA, let them get BUST, the greedy (bad word) deserve it.
