The car will be sold at auction. Whatever it sells for at auction will be deducted from the balance remaining.

Will you get sued for the money you still owe after your car is repossessed?

If you don't pay the balance of the loan after repossession, the lender can take you to court for the remaining balance or they can charge it off. Neither is a good thing, so it is best to pay the remaining balance as soon as possible. ___________________________________________________ Most vehicles that have been repossessed are sold at auction. When this occurs, you are responsible for any balance that remains less the monies collected from the sale. If a balance remains and you fail to pay it then the creditor or lending agency can sue for the balance due plus legal fees.
