GAP Coverage (Guaranteed Asset Protection)

In most circumstances, your vehicle is worth a lot less the second you drive it off the lot. For what amounts to just a few dollars a month, GAP Coverage can save you from making loan payments on a vehicle that’s beyond repair, or stolen and not recovered. The Coverage is designed to pay the difference, (i.e., the GAP) between what you owe on the vehicle and what the vehicle is worth at the time of the incident.

Get GAP at time of your loan or If you already have an auto loan with us, GAP Insurance may be added at any time. The total cost is just $449.

What is Guaranteed Asset Protection?

GAP is a voluntary, non-insurance product designed to waive the remaining loan balance not covered by the borrower’s primary insurance carrier settlement in the event of a total loss or unrecovered theft, subject to limitations and exclusions, including, but not limited to, loan-to-value (LTV) maximum, delinquent payments, late charges, refundable service warranty contracts, and other insurance-related charges. GAP Advantage also provides you with a $1,000 credit towards the financing of a replacement vehicle financed or leased with our financial institution!

How does GAP work?

The actual cash value of your vehicle as determined by your primary insurance carrier could be less than the actual balance you owe on your loan. In the event of a total loss or theft, GAP waives the difference between your outstanding loan balance and the actual cash value (ACV) of the vehicle up to the maximum LTV %. GAP may also cover up to $1,000 of your deductible if there is a “gap” after the primary insurance settlement is paid. The deductible is covered as part of the deficiency balance settlement. Not available in NY or AK.

Loan Balance $18,000
Insurance Settlement $15,000
GAP covers $3,000

It’s easy to protect your vehicle; just ask for GAP Insurance when you apply for your vehicle loan. If you already have an auto loan with us, GAP Insurance may be added at any time. The total cost is just $449.
