The original manufacturer’s warranty expires when you reach either a specified mileage on the vehicle or own it for a number of years. After that, an extended warranty picks up repair coverage for a designated number of years.

The settlement is often based on the car’s market value, which may be less than the balance owed on your finance or lease contract. This is where GAP—guaranteed auto protection—insurance comes in. GAP helps to cover the remaining balance that may be left over after settlement with your auto insurance.
