Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP)
The greatest gap between your loan value and the fair market value usually occurs in the first years of your loan. The second you drive your new car off the lot, it drops in value and keeps dropping. Value often drops to 78% in one year, and 46% in 5 years.¹ But your loan value doesn’t decrease as fast, creating a gap. It may no longer be enough to protect your car; you may want to consider optional loan protection as well.
Fortunately, you can now fill this gap and protect your loan and your finances with GAP. GAP is like an airbag for your vehicle loan. It can help fill the gap between what your vehicle insurance will pay and what you owe on your loan.
What is GAP?
GAP is designed to cancel the difference between your primary insurance settlement and the outstanding loan balance, up to the contract maximums, in the event that your GAP protected vehicle is deemed a total loss due to an accident or theft.
It's easy to be protected.
You can sign up for GAP when you apply for your vehicle loan. There's no underwriting, no red tape, no hassles. And for you convenience, the GAP Fee can be rolled into your monthly loan payment. The GAP Fee is fully refundable if you cancel the protection within the first 90 days.
Contact one of our loan officers for more information about the benefits of GAP.
