no they dont charge off car loans it would be repossed by the bank first.

This is untrue. I am in this situation- the loan was charged off and the car *has not been repossessed*. Does anyone have an answer?

Well, yes, you can REQUEST it. But you won't GET it. "Charged off" in just an accounting entry that keeps the bank from overstating its assets and anticipated income by removing loans that they do not expect to collect from their balance sheets. They still hold a lien on the vehicle and you cannot get a clear title.

What some shady folks do in this situation is to get trusted shop or friend to file a mechanic's lien on the vehicle that exceeds the value of the car. So say someone has a car worth $3000 at the wholesale price, a sketchy type will get an auto shop owned by buddy or their shade-tree mechanic brother-in-law to place a mechanic's lien on the car for $3200 (for either overpriced or non-existent work) and execute the lien.

Bank will not mess with claiming their stake, as the car is only worth 3K to them in addition to expenses and hassle of recovering. This is because the bank would be forced to pay the mechanic's lien of $3200 and be left with a car worth only $3000. Shop or buddy then signs the title over to the original buyer for usually a few bucks and everybody is happy except the bank.
