Thanks for the question! Any aftermarket parts (those that are not made by the original equipment manufacturer) installed on the vehicle are generally not covered by insurance. It’s a good idea to check in with your insurance company to find out the details of what is and is not covered under your specific policy.

Why does my 2018 Toyota Tacoma cost less to insure than my 2017 Mazda CX-5 if the Tacoma cost more?
I have both a Tacoma and a CX-5. The Tacoma cost $10,000 more to purchase than the CX-5, yet it's far cheaper to insure. Why would a vehicle that cost more be cheaper to insure, even if they both have full coverage?

How do I find out if I have gap insurance?
"I owe $2,000 on my loan after a car accident. Though I bought gap insurance, the insurer says they have no record of my coverage. My lender said they can refund me what I had paid for the gap insurance ($850), but I still have to pay for the rest of my loan out of pocket. What can I do? "

How do I know if my car will be marked a total loss?
I was in a multiple vehicle accident and have a pretty large car loan due to negative equity. If my car is deemed a total loss, I'm hoping my gap insurance will cover the rest of my loan and I can start fresh. How can I know if my car will be marked a total loss by my insurance?
