Bridge the GAP – What you should know before driving your new vehicle off the sales lot.

  • Protection – Driving a new vehicle without GAP (guaranteed auto protection) is like taking a leap of faith. Your automobile insurance will cover damages in the event of an accident, but if your vehicle is declared a total loss or is stolen and not recovered, there’s often no safety net to protect you from financial hardship.
  • Depreciation – Within the first two to three years of ownership, your new vehicle will depreciate in value faster than the loan balance. A significant GAP can exist between the amount of money your insurance company will pay and the amount you still owe on your automobile loan balance. Guaranteed Auto Protection coverage helps bridge the GAP.
  • Why you need GAP protection
    • GAP pays any remaining balance due on your loan beyond what your automobile insurance will pay.
    • GAP covers your financing agreement for the entire loan term.
    • GAP delivers risk protection from total loss or unrecovered theft.
    • No separate cash payment is needed – simply add the cost of GAP to your automobile loan.
  • Pricing
    • Current pricing on GAP Coverages is:
      • New and Used Vehicles $ 310
      • Motorcycles $ 340
