What is an auto loan charge off?

When a customer is unable to pay of the auto loan the lender will repo the car, sell it, and charge off the remaining amount due to the customer. The exact amount charged off may vary depending on the lender. In the case of a repossession, unless it is a Bankruptcy, the remaining balance is DUE BY THE CUSTOMER. It is important to note, in the case of a bankruptcy, any money that is discharged through the bankruptcy can, at anytime, actually be paid back to the creditor and that negative report will be taken off of your credit report. If someone finally gets into the position that they can actually pay a debt off, it is better to do so.
