GMAC was recently purchased and belong to the Ally Bank Corporation. The company is now part of the Ally Insurance Group.

GMAC Insurance Reviews

Company Availability
Ally Insurance is sold throughout the United States, its territories and more than 35 other countries around the world. They are primarily represented by independent agents and brokers at more than 14,000 locations. No matter where your life or business may take you, you are probably going to be able to find an Ally Insurance agent nearby. The good news for you is that independent agents work harder to give you the coverage you need without trying to sell you erroneous insurance. The independent broker works for you, not the insurance company.

The Bottom Line
GMAC suffered a shake up during the financial crisis of 2008 and was subsequently purchased, a move that lowered the company's financial rating to B++ from the previous A-. As one of the companies that the U.S. Congress singled out as being too big to fail, this is a good investment as well as a viable choice for personal insurance.
