GAP (Guaranteed Asset Protection)
Most People Learn About GAP Risk the Hard Way!
Most people believe that if their vehicle is totaled or stolen, their primary insurance will pay off their loan balance. This may not be true!
If your vehicle is totaled or stolen, your primary insurance carrier will usually pay only the actual cash value (current market value) of your vehicle less your deductible. This amount could be substantially lower than your loan balance.
The final result is a financial GAP where you must pay the difference between your loan balance and your insurance settlement, which could mean thousands of dollars out of your pocket.
That’s why many owners have chosen GAP (Guaranteed Asset Protection). GAP Coverage helps eliminate the out-of-pocket expense you would incur to pay off your loan should your vehicle be stolen or totaled.
