If your car is repossessed and you want to get it back, you can contact the finance company and clear any outstanding payments. They may agree to return your vehicle to you if they have not already sold it but be warned that lenders try and sell repossessed vehicles as quickly as possible to try and recoup funds.

The finance companies often sell the repossessed vehicles at a car auction. Here they can be sold "as seen" and at a lower price than market value, thus they can be sold quickly. It is often possible to find out which auction your car is being sold at and you can get your repossessed vehicle back yourself by attending the car auction and bidding.

When can you drop auto insurance on a repossed auto?

When your vehicle is in the process of being repossessed, the bank is starting the process of taking back ownership. If you have not maintained continuous insurance coverage on your vehicle, chances are the bank will force place insurance which will add to your loan balance. If you are anticipating repossession, keep insurance on the vehicle until the vehicle is claimed. If you intend to discuss payment arrangements to get your vehicle back, you must keep insurance prove you are financially responsible. If you do not intend to get the vehicle back you can cancel your auto insurance after the vehicle is no longer yours. When the bank takes possession, you no longer have a financial interest in the car. Notify the DMV before cancelling the insurance that you are no longer the registered owner of the car to prevent fines for no insurance with the state.

If a car is repossed you do you still pay the reminder of balance?

When a vehicle is repossessed, it is usually put up for auction. If the monies recovered from the auction is not enough to cover the outstanding balance on the loan, the person the vehicle was repossessed from is expected to pay the difference. It's a bummer, but that's how it goes.
