This answer was rated:

helloi have a vehicle that i have not been ble to pay for...since maybe Dec of 2010...the car broke down also around january 2011 or so maybe Feb. However, after they did not repo the car. they said they sent someone to evaluate the car...i never seen anyone come by however they do have a tracking devise on the vehicle...they informed me back in maybe april that they were not coming to repo the car and that they will not be picking the car up cause it would cost more to fix than the car is worth. so they sent me a bill for over 9k as a collection....so what do i do. Thats new to me. So i have a 2002 Altima se that is not drivable...no payments made in a year or so..what do i do.
They will have the right to sue you for payment and they do not have to accept the vehicle back or repossess the vehicle and if you read your purchase contract it would specify their rights to do this. If they sue you they have the right to get a judgment against you for the amount of the loan due. You cannot sell the car because of the lien and you cannot even scrap it because it has a lien on the title. Thus, you are in one of those situations where legally all you can do is pay or leave them to sue you for judgment and then if you qualify file for bankruptcy to extinguish the debt.

After the judgment, then you can do what you want with the car, but if you do not pay the judgment off they can seize the car if you fix it so you are in a pretty difficult situation.
