ForeverCar Auto Repair Plan

Your dreams matter to us, which is why we are always looking for new ways to help you protect what matters most. Through our exclusive partnership with car repair insurance provider ForeverCar, we keep that promise to you by offering auto repair insurance that keeps you and your dreams going. Our alliance with ForeverCar provides vehicle repair protection with minimal out-of-pocket costs for repairs, and best of all, you’ll get to select the licensed mechanic of your choice to care for your cherished ride.

You already know the peace of mind American Family car insurance brings to you every time you hit the road — protecting you and your passengers on the journey ahead — so what if we sweetened the deal with an optional coverage provided by ForeverCar?

If you find yourself in a situation where you have costly repairs to make on a covered vehicle — due to a covered mechanical breakdown — your ForeverCar subscription can help pay for those repairs. Please be aware that ForeverCar is not yet available in Washington.

Why Do I Need Vehicle Repair Insurance?

Vehicle repairs are expensive, and even maintenance can be costly. If you drive a vehicle with quite a few miles on it, you may be looking at paying hundreds, or even thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket repair costs. With ForeverCar mechanical breakdown insurance, you pay a small deductible of your choosing up to $250 and we take care of the rest.

Through our partnership with ForeverCar, you’ll get a fast, straightforward repair experience at the shop of your choice — and with no long-term contracts. It’s great coverage to help prepare for the unexpected. And you’ll find the peace of mind on the road knowing that your car will be taken care of if something happens.

What’s the difference between a vehicle service plan and an extended warranty?

ForeverCar’s vehicle service plan can provide greater protections and peace of mind than typical manufacturer or extended warranties as the coverage adapts to your needs over time. For example, if you purchase the plan while your car is still under warranty, you fall under the vehicle care benefit level that covers some maintenance items like brake pads, wiper blades, and light bulbs.

After your manufacturer's warranty ends, the coverage shifts to the Platinum level —  a more comprehensive benefit with similar coverage to your manufacturer's warranty. Once your vehicle reaches 105,001 miles the coverage then transitions to the Powertrain level which focuses benefits on the parts that are essential to the movement and operation of the vehicle. 

Car service plans like those provided by ForeverCar offer comprehensive parts and labor coverage in the event of an unexpected breakdown. The contract covers all repair costs after a small deductible is met. Sounds pretty good, right? In addition, during the Platinum and Powertrain coverage levels, vehicle service plans include alternative transportation reimbursement repayment for your rideshare, public transit or rental car so get back to normal while your ride is in the shop.

Typical manufacturer warranties limit coverage to specific auto parts. They call the shots on labor and how repairs are scheduled — all of which make warranties less-than-comprehensive. Additionally, a manufacturer warranty expires after a limited amount of time or miles — but ForeverCar’s vehicle service plan lasts all the way to 225,000 miles, or until your subscription ends.

What Is Covered in a ForeverCar Subscription?

Let’s examine the coverage levels a bit closer:

Vehicle Care coverage: Still under manufacturer’s warranty

When does this great coverage kick in? After a 30-day waiting period.

This coverage is in place while your car is still under manufacturer’s warranty. Vehicle Care includes some parts that wear out, like brake pads, headlamps, belts and hoses and windshield wiper blades.

Platinum Coverage: After manufacturer's warranty expires to 105,000 miles

You’ll have coverage for items that are excluded from most powertrain warranties with platinum coverage. From the belts to the hoses, this powerful protection can really help you save. Coverage is active after your manufacturer warranty expires — all the way up to 105,000 miles. And platinum-level coverage includes any mechanical breakdown except listed exclusions in your vehicle service agreement.

Powertrain Coverage: 105,001 to 225,000 miles

In simple terms, powertrain covers the parts of a car that provide power and get it from 105,001 miles until you reach 225,000 miles, at which time your coverage will end. Engines, transmissions and drive axle components can all be eligible for vehicle service plan coverage. This coverage is available for cars with mileage between 105,001 to 225,000 miles.

What is a ForeverCar Subscription and How Much Does It Cost?

You’ll typically pay a fixed monthly payment from $45 to $75 that you may subscribe to until coverage ends at 225,000 odometer miles. Your monthly payment will depend on coverage options, make, model, year and mileage. Your subscription comes with a wide range of coverages that you can customize to meet your needs, including your deductible. Your deductible is your choice with simple, affordable options of $100 and $250.

About ForeverCar

  1. A vehicle service plan can be thought of as a type of mechanical breakdown insurance. It is designed to cover you beyond manufacturer or powertrain warranties. So, after that warranty expires, a vehicle service plan kicks in to take care of you in the event of a covered breakdown.

  2. Auto insurance can be thought of as financial protection after a collision or another covered loss. While your auto insurance policy can provide coverage for bodily injury, property damage and medical payments, it doesn’t typically cover costly events related to mechanical breakdowns that happen outside of a collision or related covered loss.

    ForeverCar’s vehicle service plan helps to keep your car going without breaking the bank.

  3. All you need to begin your car service plan quote is a few minutes time and the ForeverCar quote tool. Get a quote today and start protecting your savings!

  4. When you contact a ForeverCar representative, or get a quote online, you will be provided with available options for your desired level of coverage. Your choice of deductible is a simple $100 or $250.

Coverage

  1. Your mechanical breakdown insurance will begin 30 days after you’re accepted into the program and can last until you either reach 225,000 odometer miles or cancel your membership.

  2. During the 30-day waiting period, there is no coverage through ForeverCar.

    Depending on your insurance coverage, you may have access to emergency roadside service and towing through your American Family policy. If you don’t have this coverage, reach out to an American Family agent to add this for you.

  3. “Wearables” refer to parts of your car that are more easily worn out due to regular use. Some of the wearables your Vehicle Care coverage will help with:

    • Brake pads
    • Batteries
    • Headlamps
    • Belts and hoses
    • Wiper blades
    • Wheel alignments
    • Electrical components such as fuses, headlamps and light bulbs
  4. After the 30-day waiting period, when your coverage kicks in, vehicles in Platinum and Powertrain coverage will be eligible for alternative transportation reimbursement.

    What this means is that ForeverCar we’ll reimburse you for public transportation, rental car service or rideshare expenses incurred while your vehicle is in the shop. Alternate transportation reimbursement will cover up to $40 per day, for up to 10 days, for work that can’t be completed same day.
