Get Answers to Our Most Frequently Asked Questions.

Why does pre-approval matter?

Getting pre-approved for an auto loan shows you the amount that you’re approved for before you go in to purchase a new vehicle, helping you set a manageable budget for your new car purchase. Having this information beforehand empowers you to make smart spending decisions and gives you greater buying power at the dealership to help you save money.

What is GAP coverage?

Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) s a voluntary, non-insurance product designed to waive the remaining loan balance not 
covered by the borrower's primary insurance carrier settlement in the event of a total loss or unrecovered theft, subject to 
limitations and exclusions, including but not limited to loan-to-value (LTV) maximum, delinquent payments, late charges, 
refundable service warranty contracts and other insurance related charges. 

GAP covers the difference between the borrower’s outstanding loan balance and the actual cash value (ACV) of the vehicle up to the maximum LTV%. 

How does the MCU Car Buying Service work?

The MCU Car Buying Service is provided through a partnership with TrueCar®. You can use the service to find a new or used vehicle, apply for financing and make a purchase all within a single process. Learn more here.

What is MSRP?

MSRP stands for Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. It is the price that the specific car manufacturer recommends the vehicle should be sold for. While this price does influence the final cost of the car, depending on certain scenarios the price may end up being higher or lower than this recommended amount.

Do Roadside Assistance personnel respond to accidents?

In the case of a serious accident, you should call 911 or other emergency responders. Roadside Assistance personnel can tow your car from the scene of an accident, or assist you if you get a flat tire or run out of gas before you can fill up your tank.

Does Mechanical Breakdown Protection replace car insurance?

No, Mechanical Breakdown Protection can cover mechanical issues that are typically not covered by regular car insurance.  MBP helps to protect you from unexpected repair costs, increasing the resale value, and providing peace of mind if a breakdown does occur.

Does Mechanical Breakdown Protection pay for repairs and maintenance?

While Mechanical Breakdown Protection does not cover routine maintenance, it will cover many types of repairs that your vehicle might need.

How many times can I use my Mechanical Breakdown Protection?

You can use your Mechanical Breakdown Protection as many times as you need, as long as you are within a set number of years and number of miles on your vehicle.

Does my family get to use Mechanical Breakdown Protection?

Yes! Since Mechanical Breakdown Protection covers the vehicle itself, anyone who drives that vehicle can use the policy to pay for covered repairs.
