Angela, I dont think I have ever heard of a MAX time limit. the UCC says they have to sell in a "commercially reasonable" manner. Some states permit title loans to sell in as little as 3 business days. I have seen cars sit for 2 months. In MS. the lender cant sell till 10 days has passed. Good question.

FL - 10 days must pass before the sale, if more than 60% of the cash value and you would be responcible for the difference. < 60% then they can wait 30 days and sell the car and keep any profit made from the sale. 10 days, any profit goes to the debtor.

Remainder from above... as far as time limit, there is no one in FL, just a "timely manner".

Do you have to pay the whole vehicle off if it is repossessed?

Once a car has been repossessed, you as the owner of the vehicle have the obligation to repay any amount still owed on the loan.

The amount which the car was sold for will be deducted from the total loan amount and then the difference will be owed by yourself. So yes you would have to pay the whole vehicle off if it was repossessed.

How many times can your car be repossessed?

After it's been repossessed once, it's not your car anymore, so... once?

This could theoretically happen every single month of the loan, though in practice most lenders would insist that you either pay off the loan in full or give up the car on the second or at most third repossession.

How can I get a repossessed car back?

There is no way that you will be able to get that care back. Once a vehicle has been repossessed the company holding the car is in the process of auctioning that vehicle. You will have a balance once this vehicle has been auctioned out. You should receive a statement in the mail withing 60-120 days stating what you owe. Sometimes if you are lucky you will end up owing anywhere from 50-75% of the sales price of that vehicle. If you are not that lucky, and you are left with a full balance that you owe, your best bet is to negotiate with the lender or collection agency that has that account.
