you need a verb in the last part (dependent clause) to make it a clause. so A , B and E are out.

between C and D, D uses 'although' and 'may' , which is redundant.

C wins.

In C, "they" is referring to what?

i narrowed to (B) and (C) but picked (B).

and 'they" in C correctly refers to consumers because consumers are free of damage claims and moving violations.

I narrowed down to A and C...
any other explanations why we choose C over A apart from the one already mentioned .. not clear still why we need a verb to complete the statement after the comma .. am i missing a concept?

Between A and C, C is a better choice because even if is a conjunction and therefore needs to make the second phrase a clause by introducing a subject and a verb which would be they are in this case.

Therefore, C > A.
D is not correct because it changes the meaning.

in C "they" refers to the consumers.
