Protection and peace of mind.
WALKAWAY protects your finances, credit rating and your car.
Let’s say you hit an unforeseen rough patch and can no longer make payments on your car. WALKAWAY products cover the difference between the value of your car and what you owe the financial institution, up to $25,000, and let's you return it.
Your credit rating is unaffected by WALKAWAY because it’s considered an early buy-out by your financial institution.
Some WALKAWAY products include payment relief options. Payments can be made on your behalf for up to twelve months. When your payments are exhausted, you can still return your car if your condition persists. Your dealer may also suggest an alternate vehicle option to you.
Complimentary first year + extended coverage.
Your first year is already covered – compliments of your dealership. You can choose extended coverage within 10 days of purchasing your car.
