Which auto insurance company do you use?

As the title asks, which car insurance company do you use?  What made you choose them?  Was it the low car insurance premium or the service?

As for me, I have Wawanesa's car insurance.  I've been with them for the last 3 years, and I've experienced nothing but excellent service and low premiums.  I was involved in a hit and run, and the car insurance claims process was easy and straightforward.

AAA Auto Insurance

The AAA, aka the American Automobile Association, is a federation of 51 independently owned motor clubs within North America.  AAA is a member service organization that operates not-for-profit and has more than 51 million members.  These members can pick from services ranging from insurance, financial investments, discounts, travel, and automotive assistance.

AAA started on March 4, 1902 in Chicago, Illinois when nine motor clubs grouped together in response to a lack of highways and roads suitable for automobiles in Chicago.  Since then, the company has become most famous for its roadside assistance with free towing up to a certain distance depending on type of membership.  Generally speaking, AAA auto insurance is relatively high (depending on driver and automobile profile) compared to its competitors, but if you bundle your home insurance, you can get a great deal.
