They Repossessed My Car and Now Say I Owe Eleven Grand. – Don

“Dear Steve,

Do You Have a Question You'd Like Help With? Contact Debt Coach Damon Day. Click here to reach Damon.

My car was repossed. I fell behind on the payments, the transmission went out, and I didn’t have a place to live for a short period of time. I had to choose and having a place to live won out. I’m employed and have just received the deficiency notice. I owe $11,000 which of course I don’t have.

What are my options and what do you recommend? I’m sure I’ll be receiving a notice before long advising me that they are suing for the 11 grand.


Dear Don,

Your options are limited. You can make an arrangement to pay them or you can discharge the debt in bankruptcy before they sue you.
