Yes, American Family offers a type of extended warranty called a vehicle service plan. The American Family vehicle service plan, ForeverCar, covers the cost of repairing major mechanical components, like the engine, transmission, brakes, suspension, and steering, among other things. The cost of American Family ForeverCar varies depending on the vehicle, but it averages about $45-$75 per month.
American Family’s ForeverCar vehicle service plan is similar to an extended warranty. The difference is that vehicle service plans are offered by car insurance companies, whereas extended warranties are generally sold by dealerships or third-party companies. Extended warranties and vehicle service programs are meant to keep drivers from paying out of pocket for sudden repairs, since mechanical problems are not covered by other types of auto insurance.
American Family Extended Warranties Cover:
- Drive Axle
- Belts and Hoses
- Wiper Blades
- Wheel Alignments
- Electrical Components
- Rental Reimbursement (up to $40 per day)
Additionally, since ForeverCar is designed to supplement the original manufacturer’s warranty, cars must meet certain requirements to qualify.
- Up to 10 years
- Up to 175,000 miles
- Must not be used for commercial purposes or have known defects
Coverage and eligibility details can vary by state and depending on which plan you choose. For more information, check out WalletHub’s guide to extended car warranties.
