Are you likely to have to pay the balance if the finance company cannot get full amount for the repossessed car and how much does it hurt your credit?

The lilelihood is very good, almost certain, you will have a balance due after the sale. The only way they could get the full amount due is IF you had made a HUGE downpayment. You will have a repo and a judgment on your CR IF you don't pay any deficiency balance.

Instead of having it forcibly repossessed, you call your finance company and tell them you're voluntarily having it repossessed. They may send a tow service to collect it, or they may ask you to take it to the repossessor. It'll be repossessed, auctioned off, and the amount they get from the auction will be deducted from the amount you owe. The finance company may offer a settlement at that point for an amount less than what you owe on that vehicle - that's up to the finance company.

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. Once a car is repossessed, it is often sold in a repossessed cars auction by the finance company. 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.

The car will be sold at auction. Whatever it sells for at auction will be deducted from the balance remaining. The credit company may initially offer to accept a reduced amount on the balance, but, if you're unable to pay that, they will turn it over to collections for the full amount of the balance remaining.

It may depend on how long they have tried to sell it for. They may or may not be able to. I suggest you contact a lawyer in this field and ask it should be free for this.
