Did you appear in the lawsuit against you? Did you know about the lawsuit? Also, you say you returned the car. Did you ever tell the lender that you returned the car?

thank you for just responding. No, I never appeared in court for a lawsuit that I was unaware of. When I returned the car I had spoken with the dealer , and they sent 2 guys to pick up my car the same night I called. I do recall way back after I gave the car back to them , they did contact me asking me for the balance of what was still owed on the car,. this was back in 2005-2006. I told them that I couldn't believe your asking me, they sold the car but they didn't want to take a loss. It did not make sense to me, I gave the car back cause I couldn't afford payments.
