  1. Not the least bit surprised since Progressive is run by a bunch of unethical degenerate retards. I've dealt with that insurance company when one of their clients ran into my vehicle 10 years ago. My vehicle at the time was a 4 year old suv in excellent condition. They only wanted to fix the vehicle with cheapass china parts. I said no to that and went back and forth with them. After a month of going back and forth I had to settle for used oem body parts from a junkyard. Which in my opinion is better than china parts. Plus that company dragged ass in terms of okaying the repairs my vehicle needed along with other things I can't remember off hand. So the moral of the story is. If you have progessive insurance or know someone that does have it. Tell them to switch in a reputable insurance company. Just because that company has flo on their tv commercials. Doesn't mean you need to go with the flow. If you get into a wreck with someone that has this company. Fight it all the way to the end in terms of making sure your car gets good quality parts.
