Protect Your Vehicle

When you drive a newer vehicle, the value of that car or truck can be significantly less than the amount you still owe on the loan. So, if your vehicle is ever totaled, the fair-market-value payout could leave you thousands of dollars in debt. That means you’d be stuck paying off an auto loan for a car or truck you don’t have.

Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) Insurance is a way to cover the amount your still owe on your auto loan after a complete loss. That includes an accident or even theft. How fast does your vehicle depreciate? According to Edmunds, the value of most vehicles drops an astounding 78% in the first year, and 46% in the first five years*. That’s a large gap to cover if your car was ever totaled or stolen – making GAP Insurance one of the smartest and affordable insurance products available.

Covering the Financial GAP
Add GAP Insurance to your loan at any branch location, or call 503.397.2376.
