If you purchased a new vehicle and weren't able to afford a large down payment or financed your new vehicle for extended terms, you may need gap insurance. Vehicles notoriously depreciate in value and depreciation starts the moment the customer leaves the dealership. You would be a candidate for gap insurance if:
- Put less than 20 percent down. (Not mandatory but recommended)
- Roll negative equity from a previous vehicle loan into a new vehicle loan.
- Drive more than the average 15,000+ miles annually.
If a total loss occurs, gap insurance will pay the difference between the actual cash value (ACV) of the vehicle and the current outstanding balance on the loan or lease. In a total loss situation, it will also cover the insurance deductible, up to $1000.
Unfortunately, this great technology comes at a price. Replacing computer programmed keys and multifunction remotes can be extremely expensive and time consuming. In some cases, depending on the make and model of the vehicle it can cost as much as $100 to $800 per key & remote. In the event a key and/or remote is lost, stolen or damaged we will pay for a replacement up to $500 a year.
DataDot DNA is a security identification system that uses microscopic data applied (DataDots) to protect your valuables and property from theft.
Data Dots are tiny microscopic discs that contain unique information that’s linked to the proper owner.
