You will need to read your GAP insurance information. Like car insurance each plan is different. Some GAP insurance plans state they will pay 100% of the “resale” value. Others state 125% (meaning the current resale value of your car plus 25% above that). Others state 100% of “trade-in” value.
Bottom line – read the insurance plan document you got from the company, or visit the car dealership you bought the car from and pick up a pamphlet.
Good luck to you!
Can you stop paying car insurance on a car with gargled motor and proceed to pay off loan to avoid voluntary repossession in Fresh York?
If your loan agreement requires you to carry ins (most do) and you drop it, then you will be in default of the contract. You better make SURE the payments get to the lender PROMPTLY so they dont take a 2nd look at your record when the ins. co. tells them you dropped the ins.

What do you do if the insurance for a totaled car does not pay off the car loan?
I faced the same thing about a year ago. The insurance company did not want to give me what was needed. I got on-line and found many cars that were just like mine and demonstrated them that my car was worth more than they were wanting to give me. They still did not want to give me what the car was worth. So I went to petite claims court and filed suit on the driver of the other car. The person’s insurance has to represent them. Also go and look at the comps that the insurance company are using for your car to see if you can substitute the car for what they want to give you. ReactionUltimately it is your responsibility that you either made low payments, took out a very long loan, or picked a car with high depreciation. The insurance company is not liable for the inflated amount you owe–only what the car is worth. ResponseThe insurance company will only give you the value of the vehicle, as per the “Kelly Blue Book”. They will also send an appraiser out to see what the condition of the car was, as in mileage, any previous harm. If the accident was another driver’s fault, you have to sue him and/or his insurance company for the remaining balance.Whatever you borrowed to obtain the vehicle wil always be more than the car is worth. You have already lost money on it as soon as you drove it off the car lot. But do your research. Go online for “Kelly Blue Book”, and get the estimate of the car’s value. If it is more, then dispute it with the insurance company. Print the page out. ResponseWhen you bought the car fresh or used from the dealer you had the option to purchase something called GAP INSURANCE from them (the Dealer, not the insurance company) for your exact situation. If you did not have enough equity in your car for the insurance pay off to cover it AND did not have gap insurance. basically you are screwed and responsible for the rest of the loan amount car or no car. Some people believe Gap insurance is a rip off so they do not suggest it to you and some just don’t know what it is. They do not need to be selling cars. Not fair but the way of life. Father is an insurance sales man. I also had a dame hit me I had GAP insurance and she did not. She still had to pay off the balance on the loan even however she did not have the car. The courts won’t do much because you had the option to purchase gap insurance and you did not, it does not matter that you did not know.
What can you do if your car is stolen and you still have a loan on the car but your insurance does not cover theft and they recover your car totaled?
YOU pay off the loan like you agreed to in the contract. You likely agreed to have ins. that covered theft also..
You should have had utter coverage on a car with a loan on it. Sorry, you have to pay the loan off and now you own a totaled car! Comprehensive coverage isn’t that expensive and would have covered theft.
If the finance company thought your insurance was cancelled and put an add on policy to your loan and the car was totaled while both policies were in effect will both policies pay for the loss?
No, the finance company would simply refund any monies they charged you for coerced placed insurance and your primary insurance company would be responsible for footing the bill.
If you accidentally burn your car up due to cigarette falling on floor will your insurance and GAP cover your entire loan?

Will paying off a car loan increase your credit score?
No, most likely not..
Credit scores are calculated based on ALL the information demonstrating in a consumer’s credit file at the time they are requested. So one petite lump of information needs to be evaluated in relation to the entire. However, there is nothing about paying off an installment loan, whether early or on time, that would cause your scores to rise. The same is not true regarding revolving accounts (like credit cards)..
Do you still have to pay off the loan once your car is repossessed?

If your vehicle get stolen and the auto insurance pays the blue book value would the gap insurance cover the rest of the payment on your car loan and what is the limit?
When a car is under lien and stolen/wrecked, the very first payee is ALWAYS the lienholder. You will receive nothing, and the lienholder gets reimbursed for the value of the car. Any outstanding would be your debt. Most insurers make deals with Lienholders to indemnify and lodge up the loan. Not always tho’. MAKE sure to ask the Insurance company how much was paid to lienholder, and ask for proof too!
How long do you have to pay off a car loan?
When you took out the loan for the car the banking institution worked out how many months and for what amount the payment would be each month. If you have lost a job or are inbetween jobs, were ill, were in an accident, then if you are fair you can talk to the bank manager and they will usually be fairly willing to adjust your loan payments. The smaller the loan payment the longer it will take you to pay it off because of the interest applied on the outstanding loan. So, you could spend an extra duo of years paying this off. Banks don’t want the vehicle, they want their money..
Does paying off your car loan improve your credit score?
There is no direct benefit to your credit score to pay off an installment loan early, but indirectly it could help. Installment loans are established by a contract which details the amount of money borrowed and the terms, which is a monthly payment promise over a specific period of time. For auto loans, this is typically 24-60 mos. Lenders are particularly interested to see if borrowers understand this concept; that they are to pay their payment, on time, over the length of the contract. Therefore, you receive no “credit” for paying early. However there are indirect benefits. If your debt stream goes down, you are less likely to have credit applications denied, and a denial of credit is a bad mark on our report. There are other reasons to pay off an auto loan. Most likely you are paying more interest on the car loan (Five, 6 percent or more) than the interest you get if you leave money in a savings or checking account (less than 1 percent) , so if you have money laying around, using it to pay off your auto loan is like investing that money at the same interest rate as your car loan. Who wouldn’t want to make five percent interest on their money? This rule applies generally to all loans – if you have money you don’t need for an emergency, use it to pay off your high interest loans rather than let it sit around in an account that pays little or no interest. Comments: .
I recently bought a fresh car and about 6 months after applied for a credit increase on one of my cards. They infact denied my request because I still had a reasonable amount to pay off on my car. And this denial can lower your credit score. So if I had paid off the car then they would of accepted my credit increase and my score would of went up. The score itself might not go up because of the type of loan that it is but mortgage companies and other credit card holders will see that you have the funds available to pay off your bills/loans on time. .
It is especially unwise to owe money on a depreciating asset, and cars depreciate rapidly. You will soon end up owing more on the car than it is worth. Instead, pay cash for a car you can afford today. If you don’t have debt payments, you can invest your money and some day buy a better car, because you will have money.

What are your options when your financed car was totaled and you are not at fault but your insurance isn’t suggesting you enough money to pay off the loan?
This is not an uncommon occurrence. You might be stuck with a loan balance on a car that you can’t drive. The next time you finance a car with little or no down payment you might consider getting “gap” insurance to cover the difference inbetween the vehicles “actual cash value” and the amount you owe on it. This is an especially big problem when dealers suggest to “pay off your trade no matter what you owe” when buying a fresh car from them. You can attempt to make your case by getting evidence that the car was indeed worth more than what the insurance company is suggesting or you can get a lawyer. Good luck.

How do you pay off the car loan of someone else?
There is three ways to do this assuming that you are purchasing the car. You can call the Loan company and ask for the “pay off” amount and pay it in a lump sum or you can assume payments via a contract inbetween you and the loan holder. In this contract you promise to pay the loan on schedule while keeping the loan is their name. This can be risky for them. You can also assume the loan through the loan company. This benefits both of you by getting them off the loan relieving them of liability and it promotes your credit. As far as the title is worried it can be switched to your name regardless of the name on the loan. If the loan is still active there will remain a lien holder (the loan company) on the title. Y-THINK-Y
If your car is totaled and you still owe on the loan do you have to pay off the loan with the money or can you just proceed to make monthly car payments on the car you no longer have?

Yes on certain conditions. The very first is that the amount still owed to the financial institution is not greater than the maximum amount permitted on the fresh vehicle being purchased. what i mean is if you were to buy a 06 Taurus for Ten,990 and you still owed 26,000 on your previous vehicle the financing institution would not permit you to buy a Taurus for 37,000 plus, so if you don’t owe much and your credit is good enough you should be fine!

It is the discretion of the lending institution. When the dealer is processing the transaction they will showcase all the numbers in the document but it is up to the lending institution to accept.

They know the maximums the lending institutions will go and they play with the numbers. The lending isntitution will determine based on your credit worthines and the loan ratios.

You should sue the co-signer. Even tho’ you may be the primary person obligated to pay the loan, he is responsible to you for totalling your car.

If in an accident and the car has been determined a total loss do i have to still pay on the loan?
YES. This is what is known as being “upside down” on the loan.

This is the major drawback to financing a vehicle for a longer period than Two or Trio years.

For example : you car is valued at $17,000 but the loan amount on the car is $20,000 – if your car is totaled your basic car insurance will only pay up to the car’s value. A GAP Policy will pick up the $Three,000 difference..

I had no car insurance and the car is now totaled and I still owe on the loan do I have to repay the total amount or can I set up arrangements to pay a lesser amount?
When you got the loan, the company which you took out the loan with paid the utter sum to the car dealer. They need to be repaid that sum. Your arrangement was that you would pay a certain amount each month/week, and they would very likely see no reason why you should pay them less. They entered into an agreement with you, and will most likely expect you to keep to the terms of it. Depending on how long is left until the loan, at present rates, would be repaid – they might agree to lodge for lower payments for a longer period…. but I would be sceptical that they would lodge for lower payments for the same period. The best thing to do is – using a phone which they would not be able to connect to your name, ring them and ask. Make a note of any person’s name that you speak to, especially if they make an suggest which you think might be acceptable. They will most likely be ready to talk about extending the period, and you have nothing to lose by asking anonymously.
What is the Fastest way to pay off a car loan?

Can your insurance company takie loan car without paying you out all the money?
What an insurance company pays for a total loss vehicle has nothing to do with the amount owed on the car. Auto insurance is based on the actual cash value of the vehicle while the amount owed on the loan has nothing to do with the ACV of the vehicle. If a vehicle is totalled and you owe $5000 and the ACV is $8000 the company will issue a check for $5000 to the finance company and a check to the policyholder for $3000. If the numbers are in switch roles the insurance company pays the ACV of $5000 and you still owe $3000 to the finance company. It happens when you pay to much for the car, build up interest and fees, add other amount to the loan like if you were upside down in the last loan and they add the balance to this one. Anyone purchasing or leasing a fresh vehicle should ask their agent about GAP insurance. Because a fresh vehicle depreciates so prompt at very first you need this coverage. The dealer finance department will sell it to you for a chunk of dollars and your insurance company will sell it to you for a duo of dollars a month. The difference is amazing. GAP pays the difference in what the ACV is and what is owed on the vehicle.
