Vehicle Guaranteed Asset Protection
A car payment but no car?
Yes. It's possible. If you have an accident and your car is damaged beyond repair (totaled) or if your car is stolen and not recovered, your insurance company will likely reimburse you at market value. If market value is less than what you owe on your vehicle, you will be responsible for the remaining payoff, a situation that could leave you with a car payment but no car.
Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) protects you against financial loss by paying the balance between what the insurance company paid and the balance of your loan, minus your deductible.
