Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP)


What is Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP)?
If your vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen and not recovered, the amount paid by your insurance company may be less than the amount you owe on your loan. You will be responsible for paying this "gap" in coverage, which could be very costly to you. Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) coverage will pay the difference for you, plus up to $1000 of your insurance deductible.

What causes a gap to occur?
In the event of a total loss of your vehicle, a gap between your insurance settlement and the payoff on your loan may occur for one or more of the following reasons:
  • The rate of depreciation on your vehicle exceeds the rate at which you repay the principal portion of your loan
  • Used car values are relatively low at the time of loss
  • You "rolled over" the remainder of your previous auto loan into the financing of your current vehicle
  • You put down little or no down payment at the inception of the loan
If one or more of the above applies to you, you should consider purchasing GAP coverage.
