Because most insurance policies only cover the value of your vehicle, your loan or lease balance could be higher than your vehicle's value.
GAP coverage goes into effect in the event your vehicle is totaled or stolen. Our Guaranteed Asset Protection program pays the difference between the outstanding loan or lease balance and the actual value of the vehicle, less certain deductions.
What Does GAP Cover?
GAP was designed for all drivers, whether you finance or lease a new or used vehicle. It covers automobiles, vans, light trucks, motorcycles, boats, travel trailers, motor homes, golf carts, jet skis, and almost any other vehicle*.
GAP covers the difference between your primary carrier's insurance settlement and the amount of your loan or lease, less delinquent payments, late charges, refundable service warranty contracts, and other insurance-related charges. Included in this difference is your insurance deductible, which is limited to $1,000**.
The purchase of Guaranteed Asset Protection is voluntary and cannot be required as a condition of credit approval. Guaranteed Asset Protection is a loan/lease deficiency waiver and is not offered as insurance coverage.
(*Consult your financing representative to determine if all the above vehicle types are eligible for these benefits. **Deductible coverage is available in most, but not all, states.)
