Yes, you can sell a vehicle that is still being financed. You will need to pay the loan company the balance of the loan with the sale proceeds in order to give the buyer a clear title. If you have to sell the car for less than you owe, you will be responsible for paying the balance out of your own pocket in order to transact a legal sale.

if the loan is through the bank then have the person who is buying pay off the rest of the loan.

I'm not sure if this is valid in every state, but I believe that if the car is sold at an auction, you will still be liable for the left over balance. If the car is sold at an auction and the sell price covers the balance of the loan then, I don't think you will need to pay anything else. Maybe some fees for the repo. I "think" this is how it works

If you car is finance, there is a lien against it by the bank or loan company. This Lien will have to be removed, which means that the balance owed on the vehicle has to be paid in full in order to get a clear title to sell the car. You are "upside-down" on your car loan ... where you owe more than it is worth or can be sold for. You need the permission of the loan company to sell the car ... you can't sell it without the title, and the company that holds the title (aka pink slip) also holds the note for the loan that you are paying back monthly. You will need to pay the balance of the loan regardless of what price you could sell it for. In this case, you will be handing over a large sum of money just to sell the car ... best thing to do is just keep it.
