Auto Replacement Coverage

Issue 14.12

You purchased a new car. It’s got all the amenities you wanted, plus that new car smell. You’ve barely broken in the leather of the driver’s seat when it’s totaled…

With Auto Repair or Replacement cost coverage,(1) if your new car is totaled within the first four model years,(2) you can get a new car – not just a check for the depreciated value.

There are a number of good reasons to buy a newer model car, however, newer vehicles depreciate very quickly. When a newer model car is involved in an accident, many insurance companies will settle the claim based on the depreciated value of the vehicle. In some cases, the claim amount may not be enough to pay off your car loan, leaving you with debt, but no transportation.

But with Auto Repair or Replacement cost coverage, the totaled vehicle will be replaced with a new model year of the same or comparable vehicle, regardless of depreciation.

Auto Repair or Replacement cost coverage is optional protection that can be added to any Farm Bureau Member’s Choice policy for vehicles within the first three model years. The option is removed at policy renewal the year your vehicle reaches four or five model years old depending on your state.
