    I agree with the customer service aspect. You always get a person and they seem to be native English speakers.

    I switched from Wells Fargo (after they bought Wachovia, and switched it in GA) to USAA. The deciding factor was searching twitter for USAA and about 95% of the comments were positive. When you search for BoA, or WellsFargo, you get about 95% negative comments.

    Their auto policy for me is about $3 less every 6 months than GEICO, but changing would be too much hassle for just $3.

    I'm sure one could find some cut rate insurer that is cheaper, but their services has always been exemplary and their rates always competitive (usually better than) the major insurers. And I fully agree, their banking, insurance and other services are just outstanding. It's a very well managed company top to bottom.

    I've had both GEICO and USAA. Auto rates are very comparable but since my home is insured with USAA I have elected to keep them for my auto insurance. The last time I asked for a quote for the Model S, the agent was familiar with Tesla and gave me a quote $10/month more than what I was paying for my 2002 Jetta. USAA also has a subscriber savings account and once a year will add to that account a percentage based on profits for the year. In addition, I also get a check once a year. Sort of like profit sharing. When you take all that into account, No other insurer can touch them.

    I'm a submarine guy currently on shore duty. USNA '08. Hopefully I'll be a Tesla owner in the next year or two.

    U.S. Army retired in 1993 after 22 years of active service. Hope to be a proud Tesla owner by the end of November. This waiting is testing my patience.
