Contact a local attorney for state/case specific advise. Most judgments ARE renewable.

If you were not sued by the lender then there could not have been judgment action. If you have a lien against real property as a result or if the judgment was awarded and has yet to be executed you may have a problem. However, it is possible the state SOL for the debt has expired which means the creditor would not be able to file a lawsuit and any payment would be voluntary on your part. However, paying any amount could reactivate the debt making it again collectible by using litigation, such possible actions are regulated by the laws of the state where your reside, in some cases when it concerns the purchase of a vehicle, in the state where the contract was actually made. ANY activity concerning the debt more than likely will reflect on your CR. Obtaining legal advice would be a good option, most attorneys offer a free or minimal fee consultation.

How will a repossession affect your credit report?

A repossession is a significant derogatory mark against your credit. The account appear with a similar status as any collection or charge off account. In repossession, the collateral is often re-sold with the amount received being applied against any remaining amount owing on your loan. If the collateral is sold for less than what you owed, the amount left over, called a "deficiency balance" is still your debt. The creditor can actively collect on this, report it on your credit report and sue you to recover the amount.
