First Class Guaranteed Auto Protection

Each year millions of vehicles are totaled in events such as collisions, thefts, or natural disasters. In many cases, the insurance settlement does not cover the loan payoff. The First Class Guaranteed Auto Protection (GAP) plan available through Mercedes-Benz Financial Services s an optional product you may purchase to help provide a level of financial protection if you find yourself in that situation. When you choose First Class GAP, the plan fee can be added to your monthly vehicle payment.

Relax. You’re covered.

If your Mercedes-Benz vehicle is stolen or declared a total loss in an accident, there can be a significant difference between the amount your insurance company will cover and the balance owed to Mercedes-Benz Financial Services. First Class Guaranteed Auto Protection helps cover this difference, and with it you may also be reimbursed for the out-of-pocket cost of your insurance deductible, up to $1,000 where allowable by state law.

Consider this scenario: You purchase a $60,000 Mercedes-Benz vehicle. Seven months later, you get into an accident that totals your car.

$55,000 (Loan payoff)
-$50,000 (Insured amount)
$5,000 (The gap)
+$1,000 (Insurance deductible)
$6,000 (Potential out-of-pocket expense)
-$6,000 (Covered by First Class Guaranteed Auto Protection)
$0 (Amount you owe)
