Question about car payments

My sister plan on giving up the car since can't afford it. She said she rather take care of the house since she can't take care of both now due to economic reasons. Can any of you share information or experience. Suggestions , pros and cons?

You'd have to provide more information. Is the car being repossessed or is she selling it for a loss? She may still be responsible for the difference between what the car is worth and the loan amount left. She is definitely better getting rid of the car to take care of house payments. Dave Ramsey's website or radio program might provide some good advice.

repo

It all depends on her equity situation. She may owe less on the car than what its worth. In this case she could sell the car and payoff the loan. I have been in the car business for over 15 years, and have seen many people turn cars in that didn't need to. Once you turn the car in you are at the mercy of the finance company. They will send the car to the auction sell it and depending on what you owe will wright the difference off. Lots of times they get more then what the customer owes, you will never here of this because know one has ever let a car go back and then a month later receive a check for the difference over the payoff. This is because they will charge you for all kinds of fees and penalties, and this is the amount that will show up on your credit history. Hope this helps.
