The former owner of the car, now still owner of the DEBT, gets to pay the debt. The leinholder will likely get a judgment for the balance due and proceed to collect. Uless your name is 'turnip", you will pay.

Do you have to pay the whole vehicle off if it is repossessed?

Once a car has been repossessed, you as the owner of the vehicle have the obligation to repay any amount still owed on the loan.

The amount which the car was sold for will be deducted from the total loan amount and then the difference will be owed by yourself. So yes you would have to pay the whole vehicle off if it was repossessed.

At that point if the shop owner cannot get the person to pick up the car they can file for a title for the vehicle.

Mother purchased a car and was making payments she died and still owes on it. what happens to the car?

The estate needs to pay off the car. If the executor agrees, someone in the family could come up with the cash to pay it off, and their portion would include the value of the car minus the money they added to pay it off. I do not know if you could allow it to be repossessed to end the debt.
