How do you stop collections on a repossessed vehicle My car was repossessed in Missouri the bank sold it and now a collector wants me to pay the balance not the difference. Any advice I need help?

When your car is repo'd and it is auctioned off you are to pay only the balance of what you owe on the loan. So if you owed 10,000 and is sold for 8,000 you pay the balance of the loan whic is 2,000. If you have collections on your credit report call and have it investigated this way they cant keep renewing it for 7 years.

How can I get a repossessed car back?

There is no way that you will be able to get that care back. Once a vehicle has been repossessed the company holding the car is in the process of auctioning that vehicle. You will have a balance once this vehicle has been auctioned out. You should receive a statement in the mail withing 60-120 days stating what you owe. Sometimes if you are lucky you will end up owing anywhere from 50-75% of the sales price of that vehicle. If you are not that lucky, and you are left with a full balance that you owe, your best bet is to negotiate with the lender or collection agency that has that account.

Repo on your credit from several years back you were recently told you would have to pay this off to get a new loan Is this true?

I would think most lenders would be hesitant to loan you more money when you have a delinquent outstanding balance on an old debt. You would be considered a poor risk. Usually when your vehicle is repossessed it is auctioned off and the proceeds are applied to the balance of the loan after any commissions, fees or other charges are deducted. You are then responsible for the remaining balance.

If you return the car what do they do to the cosigner?

THE VEHICLE WILL BE SOLD. IT IS USUALLY THE HIGHEST OF THREE BIDS AND THE AMOUNT IS OFTEN BELOW WHAT THE AUTO IS WORTH. THIS AMOUNT IS DEDUCTED FROM THE BALANCE OF YOUR LOAN. THE AMOUNT THAT IS LEFT OWING WILL HAVE TO BE PAID,IF YOU DO NOT PAY,YOUR COSIGNER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE BALANCE OWING. GOOD LUCK ROD.


If you have a vehicle voluntarly repossessed will you continue to have to make the payments or pay the balance after auction?

Yes, you are required to make the payments, before and after the car is repossessed, after the vehicle is auctioned you will receive a letter from the bank stating what your car was auctioned for and the remaining balance you are required to pay. just to end the ultimate myth if you surrender you car it will make no difference on your credit DO NOT LET THEM LIE TO YOU! a repo is a repo voluntary or invol. it will just show up as a repo, and you get no where close to the value of the car remember it's going to a dealer auction and they normally get rock bottom price. example: if you have a 2002 mustang that you paid 20,000 for you will probabley owe 17,800 that vehicle will bring 5,000 - 6,000 tops! probabley less and you are required to pay the remainder of the balance. also you will not get a car loan for about a year after the rpoessession if you are lucky... I cover more about this and the other lies that the banks tell you at my website www.stoptheREPOman.com
