Because when you took out the loan you agreed to repay the entire amount, the interest and any amount the lender had to spend on collection on the loan (late charges, reposession fees, auction fees, etc). Just because you gave the car back doesn't mean you don't owe the money. Find out what car dealers don't want you to know at If the lender took the car, and sold it at auction, file bankruptcy. The remaining loan amount will be discharged through the court. I know someone this happened to. They returned the car, filed bankruptcy and the loan was discharged. No money owed. When their situation changed, they bought a new SUV a year later. They are paying a higher interest rate though,

Can you return a new car to the dealer because you cannot afford it?

No, you cannot just return it to the dealer. The dealer has nothing to do with this unless the dealer is also the lender. You must return it to the entity who loaned you the money to buy the car in the first place. It is their car until you pay for it. This is called a voluntary repossession. You will be required to pay the deficiency. That is the difference in what you owe on the vehicle and what they sell it for at auction or private sale. Your credit will also be ruined for 7 years. You will save repossession fees by turning it in voluntarily.

Have the car voluntarily repossessed. Using this option means that you voluntarily return the car to the finance loan company if you are too far behind on your payments and can't recover.
