You should consult an attorney for the correct answer, but, my experience would indicate that you would not be responsible if you did not sign on the contract at the time the auto was purchased. * If the married couple did not live in a community property state, the debt belongs solely to the deceased and becomes a part of the probate procedure the surviving spouse would not be responsible.

How can it be a repo if they only had the car 3 days?

What is a repo? Repossession occurs when a contract is in default and the lender takes possession of the secured collateral.IF your situation doesnt fit that description, call an attorney NOW. Roosta, yes I meant "repo" to mean repossession. The lender had my car for 3 days. I paid what I owed to get my car back and paid for 1 1/2 years. I still own the car. It has been paid in full for 2 years. But when I made the last payment in Dec of 2001, they list it as a repossession. But the so called repossession happened in Feb or 2000. Like I said they had my car for 3 days. I didn't realize they had it listed as a repossession until recently when I tried to get some credit for a new car. I have filed a dispute with each credit reporting agency, but I have to wonder if they will take if off.
