JUST ONE OF THE WAYS WE’VE THOUGHT ABOUT THE UNTHINKABLE
Guaranteed Auto Protection
Whether financing or leasing, you have a financial obligation to fulfill the terms of your contract or agreement - regardless of what happens to the vehicle. The Lexus Financial Services Guaranteed Auto Protection (GAP) program is designed to protect Lexus owners from financial burden if the vehicle is declared a total loss. Our goal is to provide you with the same worry-free experience you’re already used to as a Lexus owner.

If your vehicle is totaled, the net auto insurance payout can be less than what you owe on the outstanding finance or lease contract. This is where GAP comes in -- it will offset the difference, or deficiency balance, between the proceeds from your insurance company claim and the balance due on your finance or lease contract. [*]

With the GAP program, the deficiency balance is paid -- including your auto insurance deductible, up to $1,000 (available in most states). For additional convenience, GAP can be added to your monthly payment, for an even simpler transaction.

GAP is available only at the time of vehicle purchase or lease on new Lexus vehicles and on used Lexus vehicles (used vehicles may be current year plus nine model years old, with fewer than 100,000 odometer miles recorded). If you lease your Lexus through Lexus Financial Services, GAP is automatically included in Lexus Financial Services Lease Agreements. Ask your dealer for details.
How GAP Works*
The following example illustrates how GAP eliminates worry from your Lexus ownership. Your auto physical damage insurance may be adequate to cover certain losses related to your vehicle. However, when a vehicle is declared a total loss, insurance companies will generally pay the market value of the vehicle less any insurance deductible, if applicable. Depending on the age of your vehicle, this amount may be substantially less than the balance due on your finance or lease contract. GAP may smooth away that out-of-pocket expense.

Finance or Lease Contract Payoff Amount:$43,000
Minus Total Auto Insurance Settlement [*]:-$40,000
 $3,000
Plus Auto Insurance Deductible [*]:+$1,000
Total Out-of-Pocket Expense [*]:$4,000
Minus GAP Payment [*]:-$4,000
Total Owed to Financial Institution to Pay Off Finance or Lease Contract$0

For illustrative purposes only

* GAP is only available at the time of vehicle purchase or lease. Ask your local Lexus dealer for GAP For GAP customer service, call 1-800-255-8713. Type and availability of GAP vary by state. GAP may not be available on finance and lease contracts in some states.

Credit Insurance Programs
Lexus owners are savvy and prepared; they know to expect the unexpected. Credit Insurance can provide financial security in the event you become disabled or die before the retail contract or lease obligation is met.
Credit Life Insurance
The insurance company will pay the covered balance due on your retail contract or lease (up to specified limits) should death occur while you are covered during the term of insurance. Joint coverage is available (only one benefit is payable under joint life insurance).
Credit Disability Insurance
The insurance company will pay the covered balance due on your retail contract or lease (up to specified limits) should disability occur while you are covered during the term of insurance.

  • Hospitalization is not required for payment.
  • Coverage includes injuries that occur both at and outside of work.
  • Disability may be retroactive for 7, 14 or 30 days upon acceptance of your application (waiting period may vary from state to state).
Preserve Your Peace of Mind
Providing your family with the financial protection they need is easier than you think.

  • Credit Insurance is easy to obtain -- just request it when you are financing or leasing a vehicle. Premiums can even be added to your monthly payment.
  • Benefit payments are made regardless of other insurance coverage you may have.
  • No physical exam is required to qualify for coverage -- and coverage begins immediately upon application approval.
  • Having Credit Insurance protects your other financial assets in the event of financial hardship or emergency.

Lexus shares your concern for your family’s future. The Credit Insurance Program is available at your participating Lexus dealer. [*]
Protecting your investment.

1. Accessories installed at the time of retail delivery, except car covers, are warranted for the same time as the new-vehicle limited warranty.

3. Accessories purchased over the counter, including car covers, are covered for 12 months from the date of purchase.
