Depreciation Isn’t Your Boss!
Attract and retain more auto loans while protecting members.
GAP is a smart option. As you know, it helps pay the difference between what your borrowers owe and what the insurance company says its worth. Valuable, for sure. However, there’s more at stake. Today, vehicles can depreciate 10% the moment they leave a dealer lot, and up to 30% in the first year. That’s a lot. It also means that your borrower’s down payment and built-up equity could be at risk.
If only there were some protection your borrowers could get from that depreciation…
