Is it possible to be arrested for nonpayment of a car loan?
That depends on the lender and how long you've gone without paying. Usually the process is that you are contacted by the dealership. Then it may be turned over to a collections agency and a lawyer. Then you may be sued for payment. If its a small private dealership and you have the car loan in your name and you're not paying for it, it's theft, after all. I'm pretty sure the dealership can't call and have you arrested but after awhile of contacting you for payment and the court trying to get you to pay, if you don't show up for court they can serve you with papers and/or have you arrested, yes. I appreciate your response, Yinzer. The situation is just an unfortunate series of events. I got the car loan at a small bad credit/no credit dealership (I have a history of unfortunate events.) I was struggling to make the payment, but remained more or less caught up. Then I moved across country with the anticipation of a better job. The better job never happened and in 4 months I have been unable to make the payment. My ultimate intention is to return the car to the dealership and face the music, but right now I am unable financially to make the trip back to the state where I came from. They are unaware of the move and I suppose that is how I have managed to avoid actual reposession until this point. I would contact them to be upfront about the situation, but they are going to want the car back and I have no way to get it back to them at this point. That's the story - thought it might help anyone else who has an answer to this question. Thanks again. You cannot be arrested for nonpayment of a car loan period.It is a civil matter between you and the lender.The police handle criminal matters.If you are stopped by the police they don't know and they don't care its not their problem. Indirectly, yes. Not for non-payment, but if the lender goes to court and gets a court order directing you to return the collateral and you still refuse, you can be jailed for contempt of court. But you must have really PO'd the lender if he will go to that trouble and expense.
No. A car loan is a civil as opposed to a criminal matter. Being behind on a debt is not a criminal matter, therefore you cannot be arrested for it. Never the less, if you are behind on a car loan and if the loan is secured by a lien on the car, you may be arrested if you interfere with the loan company's attempts to repossess the car, provided that state you are in…
You will not arrested car unpaid. It is a civil matter, but It affects your loan for credit cards, loan for buying new home, plus private loan for your education. The best way is pick up your phone discuss with lender. They could find a better way for you and for them. They make living by helping you event they got mad at you by not paying car loan.
No. In my experience and from what I've read, it is not wise to lease a car from someone with a loan. They can still be held responsible for the car if anything happens to it. If you cannot afford to make the payments and the bank comes to collect the car, and the owner does not have it, they can be arrested.
When your car is going to be repossessed can you be arrested if the loan company can't find the car?
Under some circumstances, YES. Do you really want to go to jail for a car???? WHY cant they find a car YOU are supposed to be driving and paying for?? NO, you cannot be arrested....UNLESS, there is a "Writ of Replevin" (court order) that you must at that time turn the car over or tell the lender where the car is. Without the court order it is a civil matter and you CANNOT BE ARRESTED.
Sure, they could request it. I could request that my neighbour's licence be suspended because I don't like him. As for actually having that request fulfilled, it's not going to happen. Nonpayment isn't the dealership's problem, anyhow, unless they do their own financing. Once your loan for that car gets approved, and that dealership receives that loan from the bank, it's no longer their burden - it's the burden of the lending institution which issued…
Sell it for what you owe if it is possible. Pay off the loan, get the title and sign it over to the new buyer. If you cannot get what you owe, then get as much as you can. Get a personal loan from the bank to pay of the remaining balance. The personal loan is better than the amount you owe on the car.
Is it possible to trade in a car and buy a new one even if you are still paying off a loan for the original car?
Yes. You have to make certain the dealership you're working with for the purchase of the new car is covering the entire amount owed on the old car. Also, whoever is doing your financing should give you a check made out to you and the lienholder of the old car so that loan can be paid off. If you do not do this, it is possible for the bank of the old car to come…
Since the car is financed, it already is collateral for a loan. Your car loan uses the car as collateral for that loan. I think the only way for you to use the car as collateral for a different loan is to have the NEW lender pay off your car loan, tack the ammount of the car loan on to the new loan you are getting, therefore they would then be the leinholder on the…

What can happen if you have a title loan on your car but it breaks down and stops running but they want to seze it for nonpayment Can the title loan company seze a different car?
I don't know but I am in the same situation. I got a loan on my van and after my first payment the transmission quit 100 miles from home. I can not afford to get it fixed or get it towed back to my house my only option was to leave it. They don't know yet and my second payment is not due yet, should I not do anything just stop paying or should I…

Does a co-signer have to have permission from the Primary Account Holder to be taken off of a car loan?
A co-signer of a car loan needs the permission of the lender to be taken off the loan. That is not likely to happen since the lender wants as many sources as possible for repayment of the loan. Each co-signer is responsible for 100% of the loan. If one doesn't pay the other will be held responsible.
If you did not buy the car it depends on the creditor. Some will void out the loan, others will not. If they do not void it then you have all the money from the loan... so you can pay the loan in full immediately. I think it is not very good to get a car loan if you didn't buy he car. it is just my opinion!
