After repo, the car is sold at auction(usually) and you are expected to pay what is left owing on the loan. At this point, you can make the lender an OFFER to payoff(CASH), you can attempt to make payments on the balance or you can wait until the lender takes you to court. IF you don't go to court, they will get a default judgment and then the fun begins.They can garnishee your wages(if you work), attach your home,ect.(if you own one) ect. Do your best. OR you can declare B/K. That is LAST option. B/K lasts 7 yrs. and is a real pain.

You end up with HORRIBLE credit if you don't pay your bills and you let your possessions get repossessed.
