Guaranteed Auto Protection (GAP)

Covering the gap between what you owe and what your car is worth.

In the event your vehicle is “totaled” or stolen, your primary insurance company settlement can be significantly less than the outstanding balance on your loan or lease. This may create a deficiency balance or a "gap" resulting in a serious financial hardship for you. Guaranteed Auto Protection (GAP) covers the loan balance that your primary insurance carrier did not cover.

KEY FEATURES

  • Eliminates the out-of-pocket expense for the remaining loan balance after loss settlement
  • Covers primary insurance deductible up to $1,000 (not available in all states)
  • Protection provided for the term of your auto loan — up to 90 months
  • Available for new and used auto purchases -- no model, mileage, or year restrictions
  • Has a 60-day money back guarantee

GAP ADVANTAGE

GAP Advantage is add-on coverage that pays an additional $1,000.00 toward the purchase or lease of a replacement vehicle. Learn more.

Why should I consider getting Guaranteed Auto Protection?

Are you financing or leasing your car, boat, RV, motorcycle, or ATV? Did you know that if it's “totaled” or stolen, you could face a financial risk that your auto insurance policy may not cover? Guaranteed Auto Protection (GAP) coverage protects you against this risk. 

In the event your vehicle is stolen or damaged beyond repair, your primary auto insurance settlement can be less than the balance remaining on your loan or lease. This may create a deficiency balance or a "gap," resulting in a serious financial hardship for you. 

Not only do you need to finance a loan for a replacement vehicle, but you would also have to pay off the deficiency on your current loan. GAP covers the loan balance that your primary insurance carrier did not cover. GAP also covers your primary insurance deductible up to $1,000 (not available in all states). Protection extends for the life of your auto loan, up to 90 months. Plus, if your payoff balance ends up being less than your GAP coverage, the balance owed to you will be deposited to your savings account.

What is the "GAP" on your vehicle? You may be surprised at the answer!

What is GAP Advantage?

GAP Advantage is an add-on to basic GAP protection and gives you further peace of mind. If the vehicle you are now purchasing is ever damaged beyond repair or stolen and not recovered, GAP Advantage pays an additional $1,000 toward the purchase or lease of a replacement vehicle. 

Not only will you receive the difference between the value of your vehicle and its unpaid loan or lease balance, you also get a head start on financing or leasing a new or used replacement vehicle when you refinance or lease through the same financial institution.

Does Elements offer a vehicle extended warranty or asset protection coverage?

Yes. As your financial wellness providers, we want to make sure that you’re covered, no matter what may happen. That’s why we provide loan and asset protection programs, like Guaranteed Auto Protection (described on this page). It’s just one more way that we look out for your best interests.

To protect your purchase, the following additional programs are available and can be wrapped into your monthly payments:

  • Mechanical Breakdown Protection (MBP), also known as extended warranty, is automobile protection that extends beyond the manufacturer's factory warranty and covers repairs of unexpected mechanical breakdowns. For the period of time the contract is in effect, you are assured that covered components of your vehicle will be repaired in the event of failure. This includes labor, subject to any applicable deductible. Learn more.
  • Debt Protection protects your credit rating during uncertain and stressful times. Your loan payment will be cancelled or suspended for a period of time without penalty, added interest, or being reported as delinquent to the credit bureau when a covered event occurs. Covered events include death, disability, involuntary unemployment, family leave and hospitalization. Learn more.
