Most Vehicles, power sports, motorcycles, and boats depreciate by thousands of dollars as soon as they are purchased. And, if your vehicle, power sport, motorcycle, or boat is stolen, accidentally damaged beyond repair, or otherwise declared as a total loss, you will still be liable to pay the difference: the “gap” between the insurance settlement and your loan balance.
Guaranteed Auto Protection (GAP) helps cover the difference between your primary insurer’s settlement and your KEMBA loan balance. The GAP insurance offered through KEMBA bases the value on the loss through NADA with a maximum insurance term of 84 months and a loss amount of $50,000. The insurance will cover up to a 150% of MSRP (new vehicle) or 150% NADA average retail book value (used vehicles) at loan inception date. Policies are available on all new and used motor vehicles (except RV’s) for the life of the loan.
How Does GAP Work?

|Your primary insurance deductible is
|Your total out of pocket expense is
|GAP Coverage will pay
|The total you owe with GAP coverage To payoff your loan is . . .
