That is very weird that your GXP didn't come with it?...

What does GAP insurance have to do with not having a gas door lock? I wouldn't buy a car (through a loan) without GAP insurance.

Dear Mr. Tyner,

Thank you for contacting the Pontiac Customer Assistance Center. I appreciate you taking the time to write us in regards to your 2005 Pontiac Bonneville GXP and apologize for your disappointment that this vehicle did not come from the factory with a locking gas cap. I checked with our Pontiac Marketing Support facility and was advised that the locking gas cap option does not come with any of the 2005 Pontiac Bonneville'*.

GAP Insurance would pay off the remaining balance of an auto loan if the car was totalled.

so say you just bought a car and you have regular isurance and GAP. Then you total it.

does the GAP pay off the rest of the car and then you get the value of the car to get another one?

Well generally speaking full insurance will cover the actual cash value of a vehicle. Which often times is less then what is owed on the loan. The GAP coverage pays off the difference of what is owed and what you were payed out. You can buy GAP coverage from the dealer, the bank, or your insurance company so in each instance it might differ somewhat, but that is generally how it works.
