Yes. The lender is legally required to sell the vehicle at public auction for as close to the fair market value as is possible. The proceeds of the sale of the vehicle is applied to the loan balance and the borrower is responsible for any deficiency and possibly additional fees.

When a vehicle is repossessed it is sold at a public auction for the fair market value (or as close to such as is possible).

So, in that context, the person is responsible for the "full price" of the vehicle.
