Mel, that varies by state. (2) The notice shall be in writing and conspicuously state: the name, address and telephone number of the creditor to whom payment is to be made, a brief identification of the credit transaction, the consumer's right to cure the default, and the amount of payment and date by which payment must be made to cure the default. A notice in substantially the following form complies with this subsection: "(name, address and telephone number of creditor) _____________________________________________________________________________ (account number, if any) _____________________________________________________________________________ (brief identification of credit transaction) _____________________________________________________________________________ __________________________________________(date is the LAST DAY FOR PAYMENT, ____________________________________________(amount) is the AMOUNT NOW DUE. You are late in making your payment(s). If you pay the AMOUNT NOW DUE (above) by the LAST DAY FOR PAYMENT (above), you may continue with the contract as though you were not late. If you do not pay by that date, we may exercise our rights under the law. These rights include the right to repossess any property held as collateral for this transaction and the right, in many instances, to hold you personally responsible for any difference between the amount the property brings in a sale and the balance due us on the credit transaction in question. If you are late again in making your payments, we may exercise our rights without sending you another notice like this one. If you have questions, write or telephone the creditor promptly." This one is from SC code.

Can a car dealer sue you without having sent a certified letter stating the amount due for a balance after you have returned the broken down vehicle to the dealer and stopped payments?

It depends on the repossession laws of the state where the car was purchased. In some states the lender is required to send the borrower a notice of "cure and remand" before repossession can occur but not before a lawsuit can be initiated. Generally a lender will send such a letter in the hopes of avoiding litigation which is time consuming and often expensive for everyone involved.

In Georgia should you do a voluntary repossession or just repossession?

The second to last sentence should read - Never will a voluntary repossession cost you MORE than a forced repossession. A repo is a repo. Voluntary Repos will, in most cases, save you money due to the cut in fees associated with the repossession. In some cases these fees will not be any less and the cost of a voluntary repo and the cost of a forced repo are the same. Never will a voluntary repossession cost you less than a forced repossession. Either way, voluntary repossession is the decision I would make, due to the possibility of a lesser cost.
