Buyers Order / Sales Agreement

Finance Contract

This is the Retail Installment Sales Contract or lease agreement between you and your dealer where you agree to a payment on the vehicle.

Insurance Company Documents

 

Insurance Settlement Statement

What is Gap?

Total Loss Protection Plan (“GAP Plan”)

The GAP Plan is a GAP waiver and is designed to potentially waive the difference between what you owe on your finance agreement and the insurance settlement amounts available to you relating to the total loss of your vehicle.

GAP is not insurance.

Knowing Your Vehicle's Value

Knowing the value of your vehicle is important before you accept a settlement from the insurance company. There are several industry approved methods for calculating a car’s value. Contact your insurance carrier if you have questions on how the value of your vehicle was determined, it is okay to negotiate.

The GAP Plan uses the National Automobile Dealers Association’s (NADA) formula for valuing your vehicle. This valuation is what is used in calculating the GAP waiver amount. Because your insurance company may use a different calculation than the GAP Plan when calculating your vehicle’s value, the insurance company’s calculation at the time of loss may be different from the GAP Plan calculation.

How is GAP calculated?

GAP Waiver Calculation

Several documents are required to calculate the GAP waiver. Since the GAP Plan is signed at the time of the vehicle sale, it amends your finance agreement and is a part of the agreement. The GAP Plan calculation often assumes all payments were made as originally scheduled and on time.

Amount Owed at the Date of Total Loss

This is the amount that should have been owed on your vehicle at the time of loss.

Amount owed at the date of total loss may not include missed payments, payment extensions, deferred payments, accrued interest, late fees, disposition fees, penalty fees, early termination fees or finance charges incurred after the date of loss.

Primary Settlement

All amount(s) available to you in connection with your vehicle’s total loss

Condition Adjustments and Related Costs

Adjustments to the value of your vehicle based on its condition or unrepaired prior damages

Automobile Insurance Deductible (if applicable)

You may be responsible for your insurance company deductible

Adjustments for Contract Exclusions

Amounts which may not be included in the GAP waiver. Adjustments for contract exclusion examples may include differences in vehicle valuations.*

Refund for Cancellable Products

Refundable amounts for cancellable products purchased for your vehicle and included in the financing.

Refundable cancellable products may include, but are not limited to, vehicle service contracts, pre-paid maintenance, or tire and wheel coverage.

* For example, if the insurance company’s valuation of the vehicle is less than 90% of the NADA value, the difference between the insurance company valuation and 90% of the NADA value. e.g. NADA values your vehicle at $10,000 and the insurance company values your vehicle at $8,500. Since 90% of $10,000 is $9,000, the difference between $9,000 and $8,500 (which is $500) will not be included in the waiver amount and remains your responsibility.
