Geico Car Insurance - I Won't Be Back!
I had my car struck by lightning a few years ago. I assumed it would not be covered. I called my carrier, Geico car insurance, and learned that it WAS covered.
I proceeded to get work done on my vehicle and had to have it in the shop (a Ford dealer by the name of Four-Star Ford in Wuakee, IA who is now Stiver's Ford) several times over the course of a year.
I basically didn't get to drive my car for a year because it was always at the shop. The final bill ended up being around $10k and Geico refused to allow the dealer to do any more work on the vehicle even though it still had several issues that were a result of the lightning damage.
The vehicle is only worth about $4k so why they covered it, I don't know but they did and they failed to return my car to me in the state it was in before the lightning.
I canceled my Geico coverage and will never be back. They left me with a half working car with no reason other than "no further work is approved".
That's my personal experience with Geico car insurance.
