Gap Insurance & Mechanical Repair Coverage

Stop Paying the Dealer’s High Rates!! We now offer low-cost GAP Insurance!

Don’t take the chance for how little it will cost you at the Credit Union. If your car is totaled and you still owe more than your insurance company will pay you for the total value, GAP (Guaranteed Asset Protection) will pay you the difference.  Plus there’s even more the Credit Union’s GAP will provide you:

  • with an additional $1,000 for the purchase of a replacement vehicle*.
  • will cover your insurance deductible up to $1000.
  • and the low cost for this insurance will conveniently be added right to your low monthly auto loan payment
*The vehicle must be financed with FBFCU, the funds must be applied to the down payment and you must close the loan with the Credit Union within 60 days of the first claim being paid.

Does It Seem Like Vehicle Warranties Never Extend Quite Far Enough? We Now Offer Mechanical Repair Coverage!

How many times have you heard stories about appliances that never broke down, roofs that never leaked and cars that ran fine--until the warranty ran out? A recent poll conducted shows that drivers intend to keep their vehicles for ten years or more. 1 Most new car warranties last four years, so the chances of having to pay for repairs increase during the remaining six years of vehicle ownership.

Car repairs aren’t getting cheaper, either. Major repairs like a transmission can cost $2,000 or more. And even small, but necessary repairs like a wiper motor can cost hundreds of dollars. When your vehicle’s manufacturer’s warranty has expired or if it doesn’t cover certain mechanical problems, you could be stuck with some unexpected expenses over and above your vehicle loan.

That’s where adding MEMBER’S CHOICE® Mechanical Repair Coverage can help. It can deflect some of the risk of costly repairs so you can afford to keep your vehicle running extra miles and extra years. With three different coverage levels and deductibles to choose, there’s a plan to fit your family’s budget.

Whether you depend on your vehicle for work or getting your family to school and activities, you need transportation that’s safe and reliable. The older your vehicle, the more it takes to keep it in good working order. Not making small repairs can lead to even more expensive repairs and ignoring other repairs can be dangerous.

MEMBER’S CHOICE Mechanical Repair Coverage can help cover the unexpected costs of parts and labor and can help keep your vehicle on the road longer. If you’re planning to keep your vehicle beyond the manufacturer’s warranty, it could be the right way to go.

Check with your loan officer for more details on MEMBER’S CHOICE Mechanical Repair Coverage, including benefits, exclusions and limitations.
