No, regardless of the state of residency, the SOL for a lawsuit would have expired by now. This does not mean that another collection agency could not renew collection attempts at some future time, but they would not be able to employ a legal "cure and remand" process.

A repossession is a significant derogatory mark against your credit. The account appear with a similar status as any collection or charge off account. In repossession, the collateral is often re-sold with the amount received being applied against any remaining amount owing on your loan. If the collateral is sold for less than what you owed, the amount left over, called a "deficiency balance" is still your debt. The creditor can actively collect on this, report it on your credit report and sue you to recover the amount.
