If the lender sold your car for more than the amount owed but fees are still due, such as the repo fees, storage charges, state taxes for selling etc.--it could be that you may still owe. I would ask for a letter that itemized all their costs and see how they come up with the figure you still owe. They HAVE to keep you informed. If you can, have an attorney look at it and tell you if what they have done is correct. Now--if you still owe- take care of it, borrow from a bank, a relative, if possible--depending on the balance owed--they can place a judgement and/or garnishee your wages.

Approximately how long after your car is repossessed do they come after you for the deficiency?

What happens after a vehicle is repossessed?

The lender sells the vehicle, sometimes at auction. They attempt to get whatever they can for it. Often the price the lender gets is less than the outstanding loan. If the lender gets less for the vehicle than the amount that is owed, the lender will seek the balance (the difference between what was owed and what they sold it for) from the borrower. So, lets say you bought a car for $1000. You quit making payments. You still owed $800 when the vehicle was repo'd. The lender sells the vehicle at auction and gets $500 for it. The lender will come after you for the remaining $300. That's pretty much how it works. Bottom line: make your payments. This is where aflac comes in handy.

How do you find out if your car is going to be repossessed in Arizona?

If you are more than 1 payment behind rest assure it will be repossessed. The way to prevent this is to catch up on your payments ASAP. Default on the loan agreement you signed, and they will repossess the vehicle. They will then sell the vehicle and you will pay the difference in what the vehicle sells for and the balance left on the loan. They will sue you for the balance, and you will pay. Your credit will then be ruined for 7 years. Avoid this if there is any way possible. Talk to the lender and see if something can be worked out. You do not want the car repossessed.

You have a car in which the transmission burned out within 1000 miles after purchase the warranty will not cover the repair. If you had the vehicle voluntary repossessed would you be liable for repair?

You will in the end pay for the repair. They will sell the car, it will bring way less than if it did not need the repair, you will pay the difference in what it sells for and the balance on the loan. Having it voluntary repossessed was a very bad idea. Now you will pay, and have bad credit to boot. It depends on the value of the car. Most of the time the lender will not take the vehicle if the cost of repair is more than they want to spend. Say the car is worth $10,000 and the lender figures in the repair cost, the fees, tow, etc., it's not worth it to them. However, you still have to pay for the car unless bankruptcy is filed. If you file and claim the car and surrender it,the lender may not pick up the car and you will no longer will be responsible for ANY payment to the lender. It sounds like you bought a used vehicle which the lender wouldn't want anyway.It just depends on the type of vehicle and the value.

It will be reported to all 3 credit bureaus as a default on a loan, and your credit will be ruined for 7 years. You would however save to repo fees such as towing. Do not do this. Call the lender and work something out if possible.

If a person gets ill and has to repossess his car what are their rights?

The fact that you are ill has no bearing on this. You borrowed money to purchase the car. You have a responsibility to make the payments each and every month. If you are having health problems, then talk to the lender and see what can be worked out. Do not allow your car to be repossessed if possible. Let someone else take over the payments, sell it, do what it takes to avoid repossession. Once your car is repossessed, you will still have to pay the difference in what the lender sells the car for, usually wholesale, the balance on the loan, and repossession fees. Your credit will also be ruined for 7 years. Repossession is the last thing you want to happen. Good Luck.
