Vehicle Repossession and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

Vehicle Repossession and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

One reason for the overwhelming increase in vehicle repossessions is the rise of sub-prime vehicle loans. Sub-prime borrowers account for nearly 1/3 of the new car loans. Sub-prime borrowers are sure to be saddled with the highest interest rates (15% – 20%), and the longest loan terms (60 months – 72 months). Inability to maintain payments may result in repossession. A chapter 13 bankruptcy will stop a repossession, and allow the borrower an opportunity to pay the loan back over a period of 3-5 years, oftentimes at a significantly reduced interest rate.
