What research should one do before buying repossessed cars?
Before buying repossessed cars, you should first research the frequency of repair and maintenance costs on the models in auto-related consumer magazines. You can also ask for the car's maintenance records from the owner, dealer or repair shop.

Just a common sense approach with this suggestion.The reason youwould buy a newer or new car is your current vehicle is costing youmore than a car payment each month.My recomm…endation is researchthe cars your interested in on overall reliability and resalevalue.All cars have there good and bad points and it is best tochoose a specific vehicle that meets your needs and meets thosegoals.I in general select cars that are low cost to maintain,havegood safety ratings,and very reliable.I in short read as much aspossible on problems known to said cars and watch videos on sayyou-ube for the good and bad on certain cars.Lastly keep in mindjust because a car looks shiny and smells nice and clean doe's notmean it is in good condition in All aspects of theengine,transmission,suspension and other component's.I could add alot more but the simple is certain brands and type's of cars arenot long term cars as they have there down falls on quality,valueand consistency of quality.As for pricing check the kbb or nada forpricing as they provide cost based on each vehicle with thespecific's like ,age,mileage,condition,and feature's.I could addmore info however this is a simple list of idea's.
Here is a variety of advice: . If I were you I would check out your county for repossessions to be sold they generally sale for 2/3 of the loan value. . I would NOT buy a …car that has been repoed. Simple logic tells me that the driver was NOT doing ANY repairs or even oil changes, before it got pulled away. In my years of experience doing vehicle repos, (yes I do know what I am talking about here) the number of outright clunkers was higher than 75 percent. . Junk on wheels is what we used to call them. Run to death and barely able to be driven. Buyer beware is what I say . . What if my truck worth 15k is repoed because I quit paying on the 20k loan. Then I buy it at auction because I know I took care of it? Heck, I could even dirty it up inside a little first so it will auction for less. . It won't work. If it was repo'd by a buy-here-pay-here lot, they'll put it back on the lot and certainly aren't going to deal with you. If it was taken by a bank or manufacturer's finance company, it is going to a wholesale auction where you need a dealer's license to bid. Some smaller credit unions or finance companies will sell their repo's in their parking lot, but that's just like the BHPH place - they aren't going to talk to you. Besides, you STILL OWE the difference between the loan (plus repo fees) and what it brings. It's cheaper to make your payments. . It's fine to buy a repo car if you take someone with you who knows a bit about cars. Where repo cars are sold is different from place to place. Try Googling your city and car auctions or else looking up auctions in the phone book. . Call your local Credit Unions and ask them if they have any vehicles for sale. Most of them do these days. These are high quality cars for good prices and you are buying from a reliable source. Credit Unions will also give you good financing terms to get the cars off of their books. You could search online or just open the phone book and start calling.
It is not required. However, if you do discover where the vehicle is to be sold, provided it is close enough for you to travel, you can attend if it is a public auction as opp…osed to a dealer aution, and you bid like everyone else. Now, that being said, it seems it would be much easier for you to pay the redemption and storage fees, reclaim your vehicle, and get out for less than if you were to attempt to purchase the vehicle. You will be help accountable for the fees regardless, and the money you pay goes to the lender either way.
If you are trying to buy a specific car, you can contact the bankor whoever holds the lien on the vehicle for more information. Youmay also start online with a free directory …search for banks andother financial institutions who are selling repossessed cars. There are also other alternatives. You can go to either offline oronline public auctions. Even though these auctions are attended bya high number of car dealers, you can still find very good deals,particularly since you're buying for yourself ( not to resellafterwards ). Besides public auctions, you might also consider government carauctions. They're repossessed auctions where a government contractwas involved in the original purchase. They're pretty safeenvironments and you can save up to 90% or more by attending theright auction. Just find as many as you can in your area ( so thatyou increase your chances of finding one with few other bidders )and familiarize yourself with the local rules and codes. Beforebidding, always have the vehicle inspected by a mechanic and get avehic
O' yea, that is a brilliant idea. If you can afford to buy another car, then you can afford to pay for the one you agreed to pay for. Make the payments on the car you now own,… and your problems will disappear. Stop being stupid and trying to work the system. They loaned you money in good faith. You signed a contract to make payments each and every month. Be a man of honor and do what you said you would.. When you finance or lease a vehicle, your creditor holds important rights on the vehicle until you've made the last loan payment or fully paid off your lease obligation. These rights are established by the signed contract and by state law. If your payments are late or you default on your contract in any way, your creditor may have the right to repossess your car.. Talking with Your Creditor It is easier to try to prevent a vehicle repossession from taking place than to dispute it afterward. Contact your creditor when you realize you'll be late with a payment. Many creditors will work with you if they believe you'll be able to pay soon, even if slightly late.. Sometimes you may be able to negotiate a delay in your payment or a revised schedule of payments. If you reach an agreement to modify your original contract, get it in writing to avoid questions later. Still, your creditor may refuse to accept late payments or make other changes in your contract and may demand that you return the car. By voluntarily agreeing to a repossession, you may reduce your creditor's expenses, which you would be responsible for paying.. Remember that even if you return the car voluntarily, you're responsible for paying any deficiency on your credit or lease contract, and your creditor still may report the late payments and/or repossession on your credit report.. Seizing the Car In many states, your creditor has legal authority to seize your vehicle as soon as you default on your loan or lease. Because state laws differ, read your contract to find out what constitutes a "default." In most states, failing to make a payment on time or to meet your other contractual responsibilities are considered defaults. In some states, creditors are allowed on your property to seize your car without letting you know in advance.. But creditors aren't usually allowed to "breach the peace" in connection with repossession. In some states, removing your car from a closed garage without your permission may constitute a breach of the peace.. Creditors who breach the peace in seizing your car may have to pay you if they harm you or your property.. A creditor usually can't keep or sell any personal property found inside. State laws also may require your creditor to use reasonable care to prevent others from removing your property from the repossessed car. If you find that your creditor can't account for articles left in your car, talk to an attorney about whether your state offers a right to compensation.. Selling the Car Once your creditor has repossessed your car, they may decide to sell it in either a public or private sale. In some states, your creditor must let you know what will happen to the car. For example, if a creditor chooses to sell the car at public auction, state law may require that the creditor tells you the date of the sale so that you can attend and participate in the bidding. If the vehicle is to be sold privately, you may have a right to know the date it will be sold.. In either of these circumstances, you may be entitled to buy back the vehicle by paying the full amount you owe, plus any expenses connected with its repossession (such as storage and preparation for sale).. In some states, the law allows you to reinstate your contract by paying the amount you owe, as well as repossession and related expenses (such as attorney fees). If you reclaim your car, you must make your payments on time and meet the terms of your reinstated or renegotiated contract to avoid another repossession.. The creditor must sell a repossessed car in a "commercially reasonable manner" - according to standard custom in a particular business or an established market. The sale price might not be the highest possible price - or even what you may consider a good price. But a sale price far below fair market value may indicate that the sale was not commercially reasonable.. Paying the Deficiency A deficiency is any amount you still owe on your contract after your creditor sells the vehicle and applies the amount received to your unpaid obligation. For example, if you owe $2,500 on the car and your creditor sells the car for $1,500, the deficiency is $1,000 plus any other fees you owe under the contract, such as those related to the repossession and early termination of your lease or early payoff of your financing.. In most states, a creditor who has followed the proper procedures for repossession and sale is allowed to sue you for a deficiency judgment to collect the remaining amount owed on your credit or lease contract.. Depending on your state's law and other factors, if you are sued for a deficiency judgment, you should be notified of the date of the court hearing. This may be your only opportunity to present any legal defense.. If your creditor breached the peace when seizing the vehicle or failed to sell the car in a commercially reasonable manner, you may have a legal defense against a deficiency judgment. An attorney will be able to tell you whether you have grounds to contest a deficiency judgment.. Remember this repossession will stay on your credit for 7 years.

The biggest turn-off when buying Repossessed Car: As you already know, Repossessed Car Auction is a great way to buy your new car or other types of vehicle (boat repo aucti…on, RV repo auction, ...); however, it seems almost too good to be true, because the price is very low.
