“In all likelihood, the lender isn’t going to let you take the vehicle to Europe.
And then again, why would you want to? Unless it’s a collector car, you’re looking at $3,000 to $5,000 to ship the car across the ocean.
That amount itself should be enough to convince you to keep it in the U.S. If you can’t live without this car, you should store it in a garage until you can pay the loan off.
Once you own the car free and clear, then you can worry about shipping it across the pond.”
