#1 – Go the National Association of Insurance Commissioners’ Consumer Information Source. Type the company’s name and choose “property/casualty” in the drop-down menu. Afterward, click  “closed complaints.” All of this will show you the ratio of the insurer’s market share of resolved complaints to the company’s market share of auto premiums.
