Best Answer

Automobile insurance, in most cases, does not cover mechanical breakdown. If your car is not worth repairing from a mechanical breakdown and you are able to replace it within a few weeks to a month I would suggest keeping your insurance policy active. This is to avoid having a lapse in insurance coverage which could result in higher insurance premiums when you get another car.

AnswerYour car breaking down, and your car being totalled are 2 separate considerations. If your car mechanically breaks down, there is no coverage. If the car has been totaled in an accident, there may be coverage. I guess, more specific info is needed.

Does having full coverage auto insurance in MI mean if my car is totaled and I wasn't at fault the car will be paid off?

Firstly, there is no such thing as full coverage auto insurance. This is just a term that developed over time to mean whether or not you wanted physical damage coverage on your vehicle or not. Secondly, if you have physical damage coverage this has nothing to do with what you owe on your vehicle. the physical damage section of an auto policy says that the insurance company has the option to repair, replace, or pay the actual cash value of your vehicle. I suggest if you purchase a new vehicle to consult your agent about GAP coverage which will pay the difference between the ACV of your vehicle and the amount owed. Never purchase this from the dealer and it will cost you several times what you can get it from your insurance company for.


How do you confirm your auto insurance coverage?

Call your agent or your insurance company.
