Gap & Warranty
What would you do without your car?
How would you pay for mechanical repairs during this tough economic time?
These are hard questions, but very important ones. We are all seeing our budgets shrinking lately and the one thing that we never seem to plan for is if our vehicles break down.
Make sure that you are FULLY PROTECTED! Alabama One now offers the finest vehicle warranty in the industry. Stop in and let us share with you how we can add the warranty to any vehicle that you currently have or are looking to buy.
In most circumstances, your vehicle is worth a lot less the second you drive it off the lot. Protect the investment made in your vehicle with GAP Advantage.
WHAT IS GAP ADVANTAGE?
Guaranteed Asset Protection Advantage, or GAP Advantage, is a voluntary, non-insurance program offered as protection on a new or used vehicle that is financed or leased. It is a supplemental benefit that enhances, rather than replaces, your standard comprehensive, collision, or liability coverage. GAP Advantage waives the difference between your primary insurance carrier’s settlement and the payoff of your loan.1 In other words, it protects the “gap” between your vehicle’s value and the amount you still owe in the case it is damaged beyond repair or stolen and never recovered.
GAP Advantage also provides you with a $1,000 credit towards the financing of a replacement vehicle if financed or leased with the same financial institution.
HOW DOES GAP ADVANTAGE WORK?
Depending on where you live, the established market value of your vehicle could be less than the actual balance you owe. In the event of a total loss or theft, GAP Advantage waives the difference between your primary insurance carrier insurance settlement and the payoff of your loan or lease, less delinquent payments, late charges, refundable service warranty contracts and other insurance related charges.2 Included in the deficiency balance is the deductible up to $1,000.

|Your insurance company settlement is||$10,000|
|based on your vehicle’s market value||$11,000|
|less your insurance deductible||$1,000|
|Total amount you owe without GAP Advantage||$5,000|
