Coverage & Claims

Will gap insurance pay out if I buy the salvaged vehicle from the insurance company?

Your gap coverage should still cover the $2,000 owed on the loan regardless of what happens after that. I would definitely check directly with your insurance company to make sure there is no stipulation that prevents this if you choose to buy back the salvage title. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Coverage & Claims

If my car is determined a total loss in an accident, will my gap insurance cover the down payment used to secure my loan?

Gap insurance will only cover what is left on your loan after an insurance company pays out. Gap coverage is best purchased if you are going to have a difference between the loan amount and the value of the vehicle.

Coverage & Claims

If I have gap insurance and totaled my car, but there is no gap between insurance payment and remaining loan balance, do I get a refund?

Not all gap insurance is written in the same manner, so you may have to refer to your insurer to get more information. From my understanding, if you pay off the loan and didn't use gap insurance to do so, they will probably refund some premiums paid back to you.

Coverage & Claims

If I have full coverage and gap insurance, which one pays out if I total my car?

Sorry to hear about your accident. Your auto insurance plan will pay out the actual cash value as determined by the adjuster—minus any deductible you have.

Eligibility

Can I cancel insurance on a financed vehicle if I have gap insurance?

In most cases, gap insurance is only applicable if the vehicle is totaled in an accident — not due to mechanical or motor issues due to wear-and-tear. So it would not apply in your situation.

General Insurance

Can I get liability insurance for a financed car, and can I get gap insurance without full coverage?

Typically, no. You don't want liability only because the car will not be sufficiently protected.
