Deciding to lease or purchase a car is one of the most significant financial decisions an individual will make. Make sure your investment is protected beyond the manufacturer warranty.
Four months ago, you purchased a new Acura ILX for $31,000. As you are driving home from dinner, another driver runs a stop sign and totals your new car. Your insurance provider analyzes the damage and determines that your car was worth $26,000 at the time of the crash. The insurance payout, as well as the payments you've made on your loan, equal $28,000. But now you have no car and you still owe $3,000 on your car loan.
In this situation, having GAP Insurance on your vehicle would have ensured that the $3,000 gap is covered, and that you will not have to pay out of pocket for the difference between your car loan balance and the amount your insurance will pay.

Your family moves into a newly built home while the builders are still finishing construction on an adjacent neighborhood. While the development is being finished, more and more construction debris litters the road you drive to work on everyday. Over the course of five months, you get two nails and a screw stuck in your car's tires.
Fortunately, with Road Hazard Tire and Wheel protection, repair and replacement for tires, wheels, and rims is completely covered and you avoid paying out of pocket for three back-to-back tire replacements.

Your car has been parked in the long-term lot at the airport while you travel for a conference. When you get back from your trip, you notice that someone has opened their car door right into your vehicle, dinging your door. Already frustrated, you search for your keys, trying to recall where you put them during your travels. After rummaging through your purse and suitcase, you realize the keys must have gotten lost.
Fortunately, when you purchased your vehicle, you bundled select protections. Because of this, you can relax, knowing that you have avoided the cost of key replacement and reprogramming, dent removal, a tow truck, and locksmith. Instead, you simply use your 24/7 roadside assistance to tow your car home, grab your spare key, and drive your car to the dealership, where the dent repair and key replacement are completed at no cost to you.

You and a friend leave for a 10-day cruise, parking your cars securely at the port. When you get back from your vacation, you both realize that sea gulls and water birds have left a mess of droppings on your vehicles. You wash your car as soon as you get home, see that it looks good as new, and think nothing more of it. Unfortunately, your friend discovers that the acidity from the bird droppings has damaged the finish of their paint. As it turns out, many insects, bird droppings, ash, salt, and other common environmental factors can actually be corrosive to your car's exterior!
Fortunately, you had Zurich Shield, an added layer of protection that was applied to your vehicle's exterior. Unlike your friend's vehicle, this sealant served as a barrier and protected your car's exterior from the corroding due to the acidity of bird droppings. Plus, in the event that the Zurich Shield coating did not fully protect the vehicle, the included warranty would have paid to restore the paint job!

Even though we could all technically exercise at home, many people instead opt for a gym membership. Many people do this simply because prepaying holds them accountable to good fitness habits and serves as motivation. A maintenance plan can work in a similar way! For some people, having their service visits prepaid provides peace of mind, eliminates concerns over the price of inflation by locking in rates, and also serves as motivation to stay on a maintenance schedule that will keep their vehicle in good health.
