Auto Loan Protection Services

Products that give you permission to worry less and drive more.

When you finance your next new or used vehicle, you can also take advantage of these valuable protection services.

California Coast Guard Plus1

Protection that pays—if you find yourself in an unexpected financial situation, California Coast Guard Plus debt protection will cancel or reduce repayment of your loan debt—lessening your worries about paying loans and other bills during a time when other things may take priority. Simple eligibility requirements make enrollment fast and easy. Unexpected events include disability, loss of life and involuntary unemployment.

Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) Plus2

What happens if your car is stolen or totaled? Most times, your insurance company will only pay the current market value. Our GAP program is designed to protect against financial loss in the event your car is stolen or declared a total loss. GAP will pay the difference between the balance of your loan, the value of your car (max 115% Loan-to-Value), and will pay your insurance deductible up to $1,000, even if your vehicle isn't a total loss. As an added bonus, GAP will also pay you $1,000 toward your replacement vehicle.3

Mechanical Repair Coverage (MRC)4

The cost of repairs to your vehicle can be expensive. MRC can help limit repair costs—and protect your finances. MRC is a high-quality comprehensive coverage plan that safeguards you from expensive auto repairs whether you're one or one hundred miles from home. If a breakdown occurs when you’re out of town, MRC includes a "trip interruption" service which will help you pay for a rental car, meals, lodging, and 24/7 roadside assistance. There are no claim limits and you can transfer your policy if you sell or gift your car.

MRC Key Benefits:
  • Rental reimbursement: up to $35 per day (5-day maximum, 10-day maximum for parts delay); available on the first day of a covered repair.
  • 24-hour emergency roadside assistance: up to $100 per occurrence; includes towing, battery jumpstart, fluid delivery, flat tire assistance and lock-out service.
  • No out of pocket expense (except for any deductible): the administrator pays the repair facility directly for the covered repair.
