The gap insurance is part of your auto loan so I am not sure what your question is.

Gap insurance covers your car if you total it and the fair market value for your car is below what you owe. If your car gets reposessed, you still owe the lender.

Actually, the cost of the gap insurance is rolled into the loan - it's not part of the loan. If you can find your original paperwork from when you bought your car, find the information on the company that issued the gap insurance policy, and then call them and tell them you no longer own the car, and see if you can get a partial refund on the premium! Can't hurt to try, right? I do vehicle refinances, and our auto loan contract includes the gap insurance (although we call it something else) for free, so I have helped several people cancel their gap coverage, although we usually do it pretty early in the loan. Same with credit disability insurance, if you have it.

Gap insurance would be a good choice if you put less than 20% down on a new car. If something were to happen to your car shortly after the purchase, gap insurance will pay what you owe, not what the car is worth.

What happens if your car is totaled and you are paid up on your insurance but not on your car loan will it be repossessed?

The insurance company would not be interested in repossessing a car that has been completely demolished. The insurance company will pay over any damages to the loan company since it has a lien on the car. You would receive any amount remaining after payment of the car loan. On the other hand, you will be responsible for any remaining balance owed on the car loan. That is why "gap insurance" is important for a financed car. Gap insurance pays when the amount of compensation received from a total loss does not fully cover the amount the insured owes on the vehicle's financing.
