"Rivera's insurance company paid her claims, but she still owes $12,000 to her bank for a vehicle she can't drive. She wants Kia to pay the difference."

The real crime here is the insurance companies.

This is for 2011-2014 Sorrento/Santa Fe and Optima/Sonata. Your safe on multiple points. My son drives a 2017 Hyundai Elantra, he said he would get another without hesitation.

They'll still compare them to Tesla and point out that Tesla has had cars catch on fire and burn, even though ICE cars burst into flames in the US at a rate of 17/hour, or 150k/year.

Thanks. I did see a Soul on fire, in the news piece, but they did seem to be a few years older. Fingers crossed.

Why you want to pay for gap insurance on your loan...

The insurance companies are just bigger criminals.

Another reason to buy used and not take the depreciation hit, though except for my first two cars, I never buy used. I also keep them 'till they need to be put down.

I understand what it is, but I've never heard the term 'gap' insurance before. Is that the same as insuring for replacement cost? I suppose you'd carry it until the balance owed is equal or less than the replacement cost?

available for a flat fee trough the dealer or from a bank/credit union when financing.

covers the 'gap' between what the insurer pays & the loan balance.
