"How can I escape a car loan with 26% interest? "
"I got a car loan with a 26% interest rate two years ago because it was my only option. At the time it didn’t seem that bad, but now I can barely afford to make the payments. Is there any way I can get out of this awful loan?
“If your credit has improved since you took that deal and you are not too upside-down on the current loan, you can try to refinance with a different lender.
If refinancing is not an option, you should pay as much as you can on the loan until it is an option.
As a last resort, you could voluntarily turn the car back over to the lender, but this will hurt your credit. It could also hamper you if you don’t have access to other forms of transportation.”

I got a ticket for not having car insurance. I went to court, paid the fine, got insurance, and thought it was all done. I got pulled over again and my license is suspended! I had no idea I needed an SR22. Why didn’t the insurance company tell me when I got the policy?
