Have been with AARP The Hartford for several years and wanted to increase my Umbrella Coverage. Had to contact the insurer directly and mentioned that I was purchasing a new 2021 Tesla. Was told that they will not insure a Tesla. I have now placed my Auto/Home insurance elsewhere. How can AARP be so stupid as to recommend this company? When I cancel my membership, may they will understand.

    I have received over 60 “events” for speeding on I-15. The report says I was going either 76 or 77 mph. That is true. I set my cruise control at 77 mph. The speed limit between just South of Spanish Fork and St. George, Utah in that area is 80 mph. I have contacted True Lane numerous time to challenge the events, but they don’t seem to care. I should not have even one event. Also, the distracted driving has problems. I was told it is because I was using the phone. I have not used the phone even once while driving.

    I recently received many events as I was visiting Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada. I pulled out into the pull out area, got out of my car and took a picture with my phone. I did this many times and got a event for doing it. I also went to McDonalds drive thru and showed my phone app to get a discount. I received a event for this. Again, true lane does not seem to care. I could go on and on with their inaccurate violations. Hard breaking is also wrong. They told me if you slow down more than 7 mph in one second, that is an event. I have some going less than 15 mph to 8 or 9 mph. All violations. There is no way yo complain to Hartford. They just say to contact True Lane which could care less.

    I've been with Hartford for years and never had a problem until now. It started when I questioned why my rates went up. It was because of under or no insurance people. So I'm paying for them. I increased my deductible at that point. So of course, I backed into a car Sept. 8th. That was over a month ago. They are finally in the process of taking care of my neighbors car. As soon as his car is repaired, I am leaving this company. Awful experience. Phone calls weren't returned as promised. They never did refund the difference of changing my deductible from $500 to $1,000. Offered me $34 to repair my car. I told them they could keep that check. Still waiting for the $53 change in policy check. How can AARP be recommending this company?

    After years with them with 2 cars, I sold one car and the insurance went UP by $30. I think not - hello Geico. Not to mention these people don't what they are doing there. Bad company - how does AARP get behind them????

    As AARP members we thought getting auto and homeowners insurance through The Hartford would be a good deal. Unfortunately it wasn't. My wife and I have spotless driving records, no tickets or accidents, and we drive older Subarus. I've owned houses for about 40 years and never submitted a claim, until recently. The Hartford seemed to go out of their way to deny the claim without even looking at the damage.

    While we were dealing with the house issue I started looking around at auto quotes and was shocked. Other major companies had the same coverage with additional benefits for roughly 50% of what The Hartford was charging us. We switched immediately. After dealing unsuccessfully with them on the house issue for several months we gave up, cancelled the homeowner's insurance, and switched to another company - once again at lower rates and with a much lower deductible. The old guidance about shopping around still applies - shop around until you find the best deal.

    AARP Hartford is great car insurance. Consistently gives the best rates and discounts that fit our changing lifestyle and auto usage. Superb customer service. Bundled with home or renter insurance drops rates further.

    I have been with Hartford for many years and have never had a problem with them. The car we had was a 1996 Toyota that we bought from our neighbor and she had a small wreck with it, it was not too small of a wreck. Front bumper started to fall off. Went looking for a car and we had our credit checked 17 times. Because of the number of times, our credit score went up a lot. Hartford did raise our premium quite a bit. No problem tho, we were not cancelled like we would have been with another company.

    Purchase through AARP senior discounts saved us a lot of money. In the past we’ve had Allstate, Prudential, Liberty Mutual and few others. However the Hartford claims department is outstanding. When you file a claim they provide all the necessary accommodations required to keep you active. I can’t say enough great things about the Hartford insurance company.

    Attempted to purchase new insurance. My policy was expiring in three weeks. I filled out all information on line. Something apparently was lost in the translation. Five days before my policy was to expire I called to find out that they had incorrectly filled out my paperwork with part of my PO address and the city and state of my residence. I never received policy in the mail. I was advised that there would be an increase in my policy to boot, since they input half of my PO Box address and half of my residence address. Needless to say, I cancelled the policy and went to Liberty Mutual who had a better rate and correctly filled out my paperwork.

    When I applied for Hartford Auto Insurance, they appeared to give me a few discounts. They asked me to install the True Lane app. I tried more than 10 times to use it, but could not activate it because it is flawed. 90% of reviews of that app confirms that. The next thing they did three months after I tried to use the app in vain was just to charge me $50 because I failed to activate True Lane. I explained to them by phone and message that the app is not working. Then, after just two weeks of notice about the bill of $50, they added $5 installment fee to pay. I think that Hartford is not treating customers in a fair manner. They sometimes lure seniors with discounts about an app that hardly works and then hit them with fees. That was a real bad experience for me.
