this sounds soooo simple. UNTIL you get it payed off or discharged by B/K. Lenders will sometimes accept a CASH offer, so keep that in mind at refund time. B/K will clear off the debt but your already bad credit will be even worse by doing so. Try to pay something on a regular basis if possible. Good Luck

IF the lender obtained a judgment for the balance due, YES.

The lender will pursue collections for any unpaid balance for seven years from the date the car was sold after being repossessed. If the balance is large, they may pursue legal judgment. Obtaining this, they will have ten years from the date of judgment or last payment.

The lender will tell you ASAP after the repo if you call and ask. Or they will send you letters stating the BALANCE due after the car is sold. Communications is the way to go.
