If she was in a Bankruptcy 4 years ago and kept the vehicle she probably reaffirmed the debt. In order to get the title she would have to pay the remaining amount due. If she is on disability and has no money, Ford may repossess the vehicle but she will still owe the difference between the value of the vehicle and the amount due under the contract as reaffirmed or modified in her bankruptcy proceeding.
