Is it legal for the buyer to be charged the full price of their repossessed vehicle?

When a vehicle is repossessed it is sold at a public auction for the fair market value (or as close to such as is possible). The borrower/debtor is responsible for any deficit in the amount between what the vehicle is sold for and the remaining balance of the loan contract plus additional fees such as cost of the repossession action. So, in that context, the person is responsible for the "full price" of the vehicle.

Absolutely. When an item is repossessed, it's typically auctioned off.

Additionally, repossession, storage, and transportation costs will be added to the amount owed.

Can a person with a repossession purchase another vehicle?

Yes. However, please note: 1. If the creditor who repossessed your old vehicle sued you and obtained a judgment against you, you would have to pay the judgment in full before buying another car. Otherwise, the judgment could be attached to you new car, and it too would be repossessed. 2. After a repossession, you may find it hard to get financing for a vehicle. If you need financing, check with your local bank or lenders who specialize in giving loans to borrowers with less than perfect credit.


What happened to Cars?

Repossessed cars are typically cleaned up and resold on a dealers lot. However, if the lienholder (the person who repossessed it) feels that it will cost too much to restore the vehicle to a sellable status, they will just put it in an auction and take whatever they can get for it. Repossessed cars are first examined fully to determine the remaining value of the car. If the car is suitable for repossession, it will be resold to another person for a discounted price.

In New Jersey, it is the responsibility of the person who registered the vehicle.

Do you go to jail for driving repossessed car out of state?

The question is a little confusing. If a vehicle has been repossessed then it would no longer be in the possession of the person(s) who made the purchase agreement or to whom the vehicle was registered. If what is meant is can a vehicle subject to repossession be taken out of the state to avoid such action, then the answer would be yes. But it is unlikely that would happen unless the lien holder decided to file it as a stolen vehicle. Which in some states would be perfectly legal and that would mean the person moving the vehicle to another state would encounter some serious legal problems.

How hard do they look for your car when it is about to be repossessed?

Depends upon the company/agent who has the contract for repossessing the vehicle. They only get paid if they recover the vehicle so in most cases they "look pretty hard." Please note, that the majority of U.S. states do not require a replevin order for vehicle repossession matters. However, if such an order has been issued, the person who is named can be held on a contempt of court charge if he or she tries to interfere with the repossession. Please check your state statutes concerning the type of action repossession agents can employ for recovery of the property.
