It will be far better for your credit if you pay it off and sell it. When THEY sell it they are more than happy to sell it at auction for a loss then turn to you to make up the difference. It can mess up your credit for a long time.

No, you must surrender the vehicle in the condition you received it in.

If your car is repossessed and you want to get it back, you can contact the finance company and clear any outstanding payments. They may agree to return your vehicle to you if they have not already sold it but be warned that lenders try and sell repossessed vehicles as quickly as possible to try and recoup funds. The finance companies often sell the repossessed vehicles at a car auction. Here they can be sold "as seen" and at a lower price than market value, thus they can be sold quickly. It is often possible to find out which auction your car is being sold at and you can get your repossessed vehicle back yourself by attending the car auction and bidding.

Sell them for very cheap prices.

If it is repossessed, you will owe the difference between the loan amount and what they sell the vehicle for.

Sell it if you can. Even if you have to sell it at a loss. Let the bank know what's going on and even though they'll complain and want to make arrangments for you to pick up any of the loan that isn't satisfied, at least it will be better for your credit in the long run than if you let them repo it.

No you don't still owe; once the motorcycle has been repossessed, it is no longer your concern. Whether the creditor sells it or fails to sell it is the creditor's problem, not yours.

No you will not be arrested. Turn the car in if you are not going to make the payments. Having you car repossessed is a horrible idea, if there is any way you can avoid it. Talk to the lender and see if you can work something out. Remember you will still owe the balance on the difference in what they sell the car for and what is owed. Plus you credit is ruined for 7 years.

If the title is in your name only, then the new buyer will not be able to put the title in his name. If it was repossessed, then the lienholder was able to sell it and the sale is valid.

When you cosign for anyone you are taking 100% responsibility for the payments on that car. If the person that gets the car doesn't keep their payments up it will be repossessed by the bank with an option for the cosigner to take over payments or sell the car and pay back the loan. Marcy

The bank will sell yours at auction. Whatever they do not recoup, you owe the difference.

Yes, voluntary repossession. Your credit will still suffer and the leinholder needs to sell the vehicle to get their money back. If they are unable to cover the loan fully, you are responsible for the difference.

College textbooks are very expensive. At the end of the semester you can sell your books back at the school store, but often it is much better to sell them online.

Yup I suggest going to the back of the toy section to the left

NO, the truck probably has been sold already and the lender got a repossessed title to sell it with. Of course they do make mistakes. LOL

User Avatar

If they actually make money on the sell of the car, YES. But the odds of them selling it for enough to cover all of their costs and have something left over is slim to none.

In most states, the lender will sell the car. If they sell it for more than you owed, they keep the extra money. If they sell it for less than you owed, they send you a bill for the difference.

Normally the answer would be no. They do however have to make the vehicle serviceable. Repossessed vehicles are something I would stay away from. Do you think a person who cannot make the payments on a vehicle is going to spend money on maintenance? I am sure some do, but the odds are against it. The lender is going to sell the car for whatever he can get. He is then going to sue the previous owner for the deficiency. So there is no real incentive for the lender to put any more money into the vehicle than they have to.

The difference between the sale price & loan balance is what they will bill you for.

Yes, if you were going to sell scrap gold to a gold buying company, you should compare the rates offered and read reviews. Better prices can be found at most jewelry stores, and they have a better reputation.
