you could afford to live on your own? Im a single mom and currently I live with my friend and her mom. I have my son 4 or 5 days a week, the other days he stays with his dad. My car payment is killing me now, its $365 a month. Outrageous I know. Im seriously considering letting it go into repo just so I can afford to have my own place. I make $1700 a month, give or take a penny or two. Rent for a 1 bdrm in my area is anywhere between $525-575. Plus I would have to pay utilities and all. I want my own place, but I dont want my car repo'd at the same time. If I decide to let my car go in repo, I would just wait until income tax and buy a "beater" and pray nothing goes wrong. What would you do?Answer Question

If you let your car get repoed your CREDIT will go into the BAD very bad category,,for a long time..That means their will be a lot of things you will not be able to get because of your bad credit..I would suck it up and pay off the car..

call who you have your loan from, almost all banks have a glitch in their policies, something about hardship, (you just have to ask, they don't advertise this stuff) you have to write about your money problems, your current debt, a little information and they give you two month extension basically. That way you can start making partial payments and catch yourself up. You don't want to go REPO way. You'll end up paying or owing all the money on your car and they'll sell it at auction for less then 900$. seriously. good luck, or try to trade in for a beater at a used car place and maybe they will cover the remainder of the loan? The car will follow you for years if you dont, then you might not be able to rent where you want since you wont pass there credit portion. Good Luck!!!!

You might be able to refinance your car or sell it and get that person to take over the payments

OMG rent for for less 1000$ on a 1 bdrm I cant even imagine, last time I saw rent even close to that was when I rented a condo more then 10 yrs and i was small!! apt style kitchen, 1 bdrm 1 bath and that was still 800$. I need to move to another state!!!! is your loan from a dealer ship or a bank? All banks have policies to help you, loose job, or have illness or things to that. you need to look over your paperwork before you throw it away and keep debt forever
