IF you know which lender to report them to, you can. Doing so is really a GOOD idea because we ALL have to pay so the deadbeats can try to ride for free. Reporting them SAVES them(the debtor) money in the long run cause the lender doesnt have to pay to find them. Some people just dont know when to say" I CANT make these notes". Its a combo of pride and desperation???

The effect on your credit will depend on how the lender chooses to report it to the credit bureau. Sometimes a lender will be willing to report it 'paid as agreed' or 'settled' entry on the credit report rather than an actual repossession. If it is reported as an actual repossession or foreclosure it will be on your credit for seven years and negatively effect your rating.

It might not have been turned in. If not, consider yourself fortunate.

In the event that the possessor of the vehicle is not a contracted party, or if the contracted party is actively seeking to hinder repossession, then yes, the lender can report the vehicle stolen.

Contact the lender or the repossession agency in writing and request a copy of the report of sale.

First off you will be required to pay the repossession fees unless you voluntarily turned the car in. Secondly you will be required to pay the deficiency. The deficiency is the difference in the amount the lender sells the car for and the amount you owe. Let's say you owe $10,000 and they sell the car for $8,000. That leaves you owing the lender $2,000. Thirdly this repossession will be placed on your credit report and will stay there for 7 years. Repossession should be the last resort after you have talked to the lender and done all you can to avoid this. Sell the car to another individual even if you have to sell it for less than it is worth, then pay the lender the deficiency out of your pocket to avoid repossession. Have someone take over the payments. Whatever it takes to avoid this.
