Thanks for asking Just Answer:
Have you or your daughter paid anyone for the car in the last 6 years? If not then the statute of limitations for collection of a written debt is 6 years in Georgia and they would be barred from collecting the debt in court if it is more than 6 years.
Even if the statute has passed they still can sell the debt from collection agency to collection agency and harrass you. They just have no legal right for collection 6 years after your last payment. Collection agencies can sell this debt multiple times and none have to honor any agreement the prior agency has with you unless it is in writing.
