Tips and Calculators

A: Yes, auto loans from United can be used for new and used vehicles sold at dealerships, as well as private party purchases.

A: Once you drive off the lot, your vehicle is already worth less. Since insurance claim payments are based on the current value of your vehicle, your loan or lease could be higher than the value of your vehicle in the event of a total loss.

Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) is an optional product that you may purchase for your vehicle that covers the difference between the outstanding loan balance and the actual cash value of the vehicle in the event of a total loss or theft.

It also includes Auto Deductible Reimbursement (ADR), which reimburses up to $500 per "fender bender" insurance claim for 3 years, and you can receive $1,000 off your new loan balance if your vehicle is totaled and you finance the replacement vehicle through United.

GAP can be added at any time, but it's most beneficial in the first 18 months of the loan. GAP is valid for one vehicle loan. The coverage cannot be combined across loans.

A: Debt protection is an optional product that helps relieve the financial stress and worry related to making loan payments in the event of death, disability, and/or involuntary unemployment. This protection cancels a borrower's remaining loan balance in the event of death and loan payment(s) for a specific amount of time per occurrence in the event of the rest.

A: Mechanical Breakdown Protection, covered through Route 66 Warranty, offers assistance when your car breaks down unexpectedly. Even the most reliable vehicle can develop a mechanical problem. No matter where you travel in the United States, MBP protects you against major mechanical expenses and there is no deductible on covered parts or labor.

MBP comes with rental car allowance and 24/7 emergency service including towing, lock-out service, battery jump starting, flat tire assistance, and minor adjustments.

A: Yes, salvage and rebuilt titled vehicles qualify for auto loans from United, though only by a percentage of the rough trade-in value of the vehicle.

A: Typically, GAP covers the loan itself and is nontransferable when the loan is refinanced. However, there is a slight chance GAP purchased on a loan from United can be transferred if the loan is refinanced to a new loan also from United.

The ability to request this option will be dependent on the terms of the new loan and if the loan term is extended or not.

A: Yes, GAP can be added at any time to an existing loan with qualifying vehicle. In most cases, it is most beneficial to add this during the first 18 months of the loan when there is the greatest likelihood of a deficiency balance in the event of a loss.

A: Yes. An extended warranty can be added to any eligible vehicle as long as you own the loan and a warranty is available for purchase, even if the loan has been paid off. The extended warranty can be purchased with cash or be financed through a refinance of the loan. Please be aware hat if the vehicle is experiencing any issues prior to the purchase of the extended warranty, those issues may not be covered.
