Guaranteed Asset Protection

Guaranteed Asset Protection Plus (GAP) is like an airbag for your vehicle loan.

If your vehicle is totaled or stolen, GAP Plus could help fill the gap between what your car insurance will pay and what you owe on your loan, to cushion you against sudden out-of-pocket expenses. These expenses could cost you thousands of dollars.

GAP Plus will give you $1000 towards your new replacement auto, just finance it with Synergy FCU.

If your vehicle is totaled, you could end up owing more on your loan than your vehicle is worth. This is known as being “upside down” on your loan. As vehicles become more expensive and people take out more loans for longer periods of time, their risk of being “upside down” has increased. Americans have signed up for a record amount of vehicle loan debt for a record length of time. Almost one out of every four car buyers took out a 6 to 7 year loan---which has extended their risk of being upside down to around five and half years.*

Fair market value doesn’t seem fair if your car is totaled, because you could end up owing more on your loan than the insurance company says your vehicle is worth. Don’t let a wrecked car wreck your finances!

Call (210) 345-2222 or (888) 272-82528 and get GAP Plus today.
