Are you responsible for the unpaid car loan after your car has been repossessed?

No. Once your car has been taken away, that is the payment. The bank will have to resell the car and get what they can out of it. It depends on the state. Some (like mine) do not require the remaining balance after a resell. But your credit does get ruined for 7 years. The above answer is incorrect. Once they repossess your car, they will sell it. You are responsible for the difference in what the car sells for and the balance on the loan. You may also be responsible for the repo fees, depending on the state you live in. You credit will also be ruined for 7 years.
