The Private Passenger Auto Insurance Market is Changing at a Rapid Pace. The top four private passenger auto insurers - State Farm, GEICO, Progressive and All State -- have recorded record profits over the past three years, but have become increasingly aggressive about underpaying on valid claims prior to litigation.
