We have a title loan on it and we don't have the money to pay it until next week. They don't give a grace period. We have been paying $200/month for a year now and it's not worth it. To get it out it'll cost close to $1500 and the truck really isn't worth that!!! Dh isn't mad, he's being very reasonable about it so that helps alot! We do have 2 other cars. The only reason I wanted to keep the truck is because that's the truck my water broke in and the truck that ds was brought home in.

But it will still be on your credit report for YEARS and prevent you from buying oher things that require credit.  Doesn't your credit rating matter to you?  Or the ethics of it?   You signed an agreement to pay, then didn't pay.  You are a poor risk due to fiscal irresponsibility now.  If I were you I would be furious if my husband "took it well" when it means a black mark for at least 7 years.

They used to but new owners bought it. It's just a way for them to make even more money I think.

Weird... I did a voluntary repo before when I was pregnant and lost my job. Took the morons like 6 months to come and finally take the car. I knew I couldn't pay for it, it was dead, told them, come take it! Then you miss one payment and get screwed. Silly how those things work. At least you have other vehicles.
