Best Answer

The answer depends on the laws in your state.

  • In some states if you don't pay, you lose it.
  • In Mississippi, after the bank sells it, they cannot make a profit. They have to send you what's left.
  • Not ALL lenders have to return the overage. Some only have to return 85%.
  • Yes, they can still repossess your car, but in most states, if you have paid over 65% of the balance of the loan and the original balance was under $5,400.00, they can't sue you for the deficency balance. Most finance companies, if the vehicle is of any value, will repossess it and resell it to recover any losses they may have.
