Does a new 2020 Toyota Corolla need gap insurance?
My sales rep at the dealership said that I got a really good deal and didn't need to buy gap insurance. Is this true? Should I assume that the value of my Corolla isn't going to depreciate below what I owe on my loan?
“You should always do your own research to confirm. You can look at the current value of your vehicle on a reputable site like Kelley Blue Book and what you owe on your loan.
You should also calculate what your vehicle will be worth in a year and what the balance of your loan will be. If the value of your vehicle will always be higher than what you owe on your loan, you can skip the gap insurance.
If you’re unsure or worried, you should add it. You are typically able to cancel gap insurance when you no longer need it.
