Guaranteed Auto Protection (GAP)

Will your insurance pay off your loan if your car is totaled?

Don't learn about GAP risk the hard way!  If your vehicle is totaled or stolen, your primary insurance will usually pay only the actual cash value (current market value) of your vehicle, less your deductible. 

The result could be a financial GAP where you must pay the difference between your loan balance and your insurance settlement.  This could mean thousands of dollars out of your pocket.

For Example:
Original Amount Borrowed: $18,000


Amount still owed at time of loss $15,000
Vehicle value after 1 year - $10,000
Primary Insurance Deductible - $500


Total you are responsible for (your gap) $5,500
GAP coverage may help pay - $5,500


Total estimated out of pocket expense with GAP $0
