I Can’t Afford My Car Payments Anymore. Should I Give the Car Back? – Jon

“Dear Steve,

Bought a used car when working, now no longer working and can barely make car payments.

While I was working I could afford to make a close to $300 car payment. Now I’m no longer working and I really need to unload this car even though as much as I love the little car, Due to credit card bills, I simply cannot continue making the payments on it. So far I’m not behind one payment and trying to keep it that way.

I cringe to the though of a voluntary repo but it just may be my last option since where I live there is little to no work here. I have been looking as far away as 50 miles for work but to no avail.

What to do?

Jon”
