When you drive your new or used vehicle off the dealer’s lot it begins to depreciate in value. This could mean that there is a big difference between what you owe on the loan and what your auto insurance will pay in the event of a total loss. In the event of a total loss, GAP insurance helps to pay the difference between the value of your vehicle and what you owe on your loan. It covers up to 130% loan-to-value for a one-time fee of $350. This is available on vehicles, motorcycles, boats, and RVs.
You can add GAP insurance to your Dominion Energy CU car loan at any time; just call us at 800-268-6928.
*Annual percentage rate, if you apply online, discount will not appear until a loan counselor completes your loan setup.
** CUDL is not available in all areas. Dominion Energy Credit Union does not endorse individual dealers or have special pricing agreements with dealers. It is important you negotiate all aspects of the purchase as you would at any dealer.
