Auto Loan Coverage Details

For example, if your car is stolen or totaled vehicle, we offer this service for a flat rate of $450.00 while dealers charge a percentage of the loan amount.

TotalRestart-Auto Replacement Benefit
A benefit that will help protect you against vehicle rapid deprecation and gives you an opportunity for a fresh “Restart” if you experience a total loss on your vehicle. With TotalRestart you may be eligible for a credit when you return to ECU for financing of a replacement vehicle. This is an exclusive protection only available when you finance your vehicle loan with ECU.
Debt Protection Coverage
ECU’s Debt Protection Coverage protects your family in the event you become impaired and have trouble paying your loan. Most consumers do not carry enough life insurance to pay off all their debts. With our Debit Protection Coverage your loan debt could be waived when a qualifying event occurs.
Vehicle Extended Service Contracts
Put the brakes on expensive car repairs. A factory warranty may not be enough, plus most major repairs occur after the manufacturer’s warranty expires. Consider adding an extended service contract to your loan. Coverage obtained through the ECU may save you money when compared to dealer plans.
Available Features Include:
- Low Deductibles
- Roadside Assistance Reimbursement
- Car Rental
- Nationwide Protection
- Convenient Access to Services via Toll-Free Number
- Reimbursed Travel Expenses
- Increased Vehicle Resale Value
Why purchase an extended service contract?
Extended coverage can help you save money if your car ever needs to be repaired and your manufacturer’s warranty has expired. In addition, it could help if you re-sell your vehicle. Pre-owned car buyers look more favorable upon a vehicle that comes with coverage. It represents a vehicle that has likely been well maintained by its owner. Should the buyer decline the option to purchase your coverage, you can cancel and apply for a prorated refund.
How do you get an extended service contract?
