what does WHO do after the lessee "hides" the car?? Me?? IF I'm looking for the "hidden" car, I ask the lessee where they hid it. If they say it was "stolen" I ride them to the local PD and help them file a STOLEN report. If you need more help, email me.

Loan default is a civil matter, not criminal, so there is no need to worry about any jail time being served because of it.

Can you be sued for a car you bought from a buy here pay here lot that you called them and told them to pick the car up because you could no longer afford the payments?

This is called defaulting on a loan. You will pay in the end. You will pay the difference in what they sell the car for and what you owe on the vehicle. And believe me they don't care what they sell the car for. Why should they as they know you are going to pay the difference. Your credit will also be ruined for 7 years. Are you beginning to see just how dumb it is to tell them to pick up the car and default on the loan. Another word for this is repossession. Get the car back and make the payments, or at the very least talk to the lender and explain your situation. They can restructure the loan so you can afford the payments. You do not want to allow the car to be reposed.

Total nonsense...They are trying to get their car back. Scare tactics. But that does not make it true. Failure to make payments on a loan is NOT a felony. You are defaulting on a loan and they have every right to repossess your vehicle, sell it, and you pay the difference in what it brings at sale and the total left on the loan. You will also be assessed repossession fees. Of course your credit will be ruined for 7 years, but you for sure are not going to be charged with a felony.
