If your vehicle is stolen, accidentally damaged beyond repair, or otherwise declared a “total loss”, most auto policies do not cover the actual cash value of your vehicle…less your deductible. Unfortunately you are liable for the balance that remains on the loan. Gap protection covers that in between money left on the loan. Ask a loan officer for complete details and a pamphlet.
