Ask The Get Out of Debt Experts Repossession

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

Written by Steve Rhode

“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?


Dear Jon,

You said, “due to credit card bills.” How much do you pay each month in credit card payments?

Let me know a bit more about your other debts, please.
