depreciation protection waiver
Did you know that the average car depreciates in value by 35% in 3 years?* New cars are a big deal and so is protecting your new investment. Depreciation Protection Waiver (DPW) protects your vehicle equity and hedges against depreciation over the life of the loan. In the event of a total loss, DPW provides a waiver benefit equal to the difference between your vehicle's Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) or retail value at the time of DPW purchase, less the amount of your loan balance at the time of total loss up to a maximum waiver benefit of $10,000, or the outstanding loan balance.† DPW kicks in if your vehicle is ever totaled in a collision or stolen and not recovered at any time over the life of the loan.
Already purchased your car? It's not too late to protect the equity of your vehicle. You can get DPW even after you have taken out your Auto Loan. You can also get DPW through BlueOx Credit Union even if you are not a member or didn't finance your Auto Loan through us.
