After sale of car, lenders options are get a judgement, garnishee wages, attach other property. Each is at the lenders option. try to work out a pyment with the lender that you can live with. lenders dont really want to spend any more money on your account than they have to, but do want to collect as much, as quick as possible. Good Luck

No you don't still owe; once the motorcycle has been repossessed, it is no longer your concern. Whether the creditor sells it or fails to sell it is the creditor's problem, not yours.

They get resold as used cars to make some of the money back.

Once a car has been repossessed, you as the owner of the vehicle have the obligation to repay any amount still owed on the loan. Once a car is repossessed, it is often sold in a repossessed cars auction by the finance company. The amount which the car was sold for will be deducted from the total loan amount and then the difference will be owed by yourself. So yes you would have to pay the whole vehicle off if it was repossessed.
